    How many hours do you work as a freelancer? I am just getting started, but I will work as many hours as it takes to get the job done. It's up to you how many hours you are willing to put in for each project, but I always recommend allotting time for some sort of rest. After all, no professional can perform at their best with only four or five good sleep cycles every night! I never want my clients seeing me yawning or rubbing my eyes midway through an important project. Be sure that if your client is giving you a deadline, they understand there are times when one thing on your plate needs to take precedence over another.

    It is a good idea to maintain a balance in the number of hours spent between client work and independent time. You will find that some days you have more focus on one or the other, but this is quite normal. The frequency of work from clients will vary from person to person, however it is recommended that freelancers aim for at least 4-6 hours of freelance work per day. In order to establish enough momentum with your day job, it's necessary not only to have uninterrupted blocks of time where you can solely dedicate yourself towards client work, but also ensures your mind doesn't burn out by being hyper focused on a single thing for too long a period of time without any rest periods in between.

    What are your objectives related to what you want to do as a freelancer? Freelancers typically work around forty hours per week, though it's up to them how many hours they choose. If you're looking for opportunity for steady work, there are more available jobs in the beginning of the year leading up to April 15th, when employers adjust their payments for tax purposes. If you're trying to carve out more time for other pursuits, then this might be a good month-or-so break from working. Alternately, if you're trying to make money now and then with limited commitments, then this would be an excellent time that rewards freelancers who don't require much commitment on both sides.

    I am self-employed and work on my own hours, but since it is hard to get clients during the summer months, I usually only work about 20-40 hours per month. The average freelancer is 38 years old with 3 years of experience. The average self-employed person draws an annual salary of $45,000. It can be tough to balance life obligations with your chosen career path--especially if you are trying to start your own business or are new in town. You may need to let someone else take care of chores at home while you keep up with clients on the other side of town who still think "9-5" means Monday through Friday 8 hours a day.

    The time I spend working varies, but I try to get in at least 45 hours each week. I do whatever is required of me, including taking care of my family and tending to my financial needs. That said, the average workweek will be between 50-60 hours for a freelancer who has jobs lined up and can manage them efficiently. If there aren't any jobs lined up and you're constantly scrambling for new clients, then your average workweek might be closer to 40 hours or less. You really need that downtime; otherwise your overall productivity could start deteriorating quickly.

    That really depends on when you are in your career when deciding when to go full-time. I started freelancing in 2010, but at the time decided not to quit my day job--even though I was making more money than I did at my last job. Who knows why we do what we do, but after two years of freelancing and refusing higher paying work because it would use up all of my free time and mess with my evenings and weekends for a smaller paycheck, which is often the case with freelance rates that start out really high before they drop off later on down the line..
