Freelancing while working a full time job can be extremely difficult.

After a long day of work, it’s hard to find the motivation to do more work.

However, freelancing while working full time can be a fantastic way to make some extra money, do something that you love, and test the waters to see if you would want to eventually transition into freelancing full time.

Fulltime Nomad has some great tips that will help you be the best freelancer you can while working a full time job.

“2. Don’t Over Commit

When the freelance work starts coming in, it’s very exciting and it might be tempting to say yes to everything that comes your way.


First, you don’t have the time. You’re still working a full time job so don’t promise to do 5 articles in 24 hours when you know you’ll be at work for most of the day.

Second, start slow. Take the time to learn and gain experience before saying yes to everything.

And finally, when you overcommit and can’t live up to your promise, the quality of your work will suffer.

Take on smaller amounts of work but do it well.”
