    Answer: Yes, and in many cases you can make more money freelancing it's just a matter of finding the time to fit all the things into your schedule.

    Freelancers often find that for their income to be sustainable, they need to invest a lot of time into marketing themselves and showing up well on search engines such as Google and Bing. They also typically have higher overhead costs than someone working from an office job with several employees because they need things like good internet service. It pays off in the long-run though if you're willing to take some short-term losses when needed, or when it's possible for you take your work on the road so you stay productive while traveling & meeting new people.

    Possibly. Yes, but do contact your employer first. It's important to make sure that they are amenable to the new arrangement. However, even if this isn't an option for you, there are still many ways in which freelancing can be used as a supplement to your regular job on occasion. For example, I sometimes use freelancing as an opportunity to explore topics that go beyond the scope of my marketing job or test out potential new skills on work projects before making any commitments by starting full-time gigs elsewhere. And it's easy enough for me because my marketing job is freelance all along!

    Freelancing, or what is also known as "free agent" work, has benefits and drawbacks. One of the main benefits (or perhaps motivations) to freelancing is that it allows you to be your own boss. No more working 8 hours a day for an unappreciative boss who doesn't know her job--you set your own hours! Freelancers enjoy all of the perks that come with being an owner, but they often miss out on many aspects of regular employment such as vacation time, health insurance and retirement plans. As always there are tradeoffs! That caveat aside it's important not to put all of your eggs--messy metaphor? Maybe!

    Sure, if you don't do any overlapping duties. There are a few ways to coordinate private work with a job. First, there's the "if I can fit it into my schedule" approach that a lot of people take if they're earning a salary or taking on enough hours that they can afford time for side projects. This is great because it usually gives you extra flexibility in your day-to-day routine and ensures that you're not burning yourself out by working long hours.

    Answer to this question would vary depending on whether your goal is to make money or progress your career. Freelancing offers the advantage of higher pay per hour, which can be really vital if you are in an expensive city like San Francisco. It also lets you set hours that suit your lifestyle, but gives more exposure to uncertain cash flow and less stability in income. Freelancing does not offer the steady flexible work schedules that many employers provide but flexible scheduling is possible when freelancing for multiple clients at once. Freelancers need to develop strong client management skills with patience because sometimes there are short term periods when there are no jobs available so they have pass time until jobs come up again.

    You may be able to do freelance work through your current employer's internal company structure, in which you're an "employee of the same company with a second job". This is typically possible when the freelancer is working part-time or when there is no conflict between their full-time and freelance work. They also need to have relatively few qualifications for both jobs, such as when they are simply cashing checks from their main employer. But this is not actually freelancing and can't serve as a substitution for freelancing altogether. There are certain things that only come out during freelancing jobs that one wouldn't get at another job, such as better networking opportunities and building up more experience overall.
