More Work, More Hours, More Money
In most cases, the more you work as a freelance writer the more money you are going to make. This does not mean that you should take on every job that comes your way, but for the most part it holds true. But of course, more work is not always a good thing. After all, more work means more hours as well. Are you willing to put in more time at your computer to make additional money? As a freelance writer it is very important to find a happy medium. If you donâ€™t you will learn soon enough that you are burning yourself out, and that earning a few extra dollars is not in your best interest.
How much more work can you handle at this time? You need to know the answer to this question to ensure that you do not overextend yourself. For instance, if you know that you have approximately one extra hour per day to work, you should not take on a new job that is going to push you over this threshold. It is your decision on how much you can work each day, but again, make sure you are smart about this.
Learning how to work smart and land higher paying gigs can help immensely. This allows you to work at your current pace while making more money. For instance, if you replace a job that pays $500/month with a similar one that pays $1,500/month you can earn more money by doing the same amount of work. This is just one way to work smart.
I donâ€™t want to tell you that working more hours is a bad thing; because this is not always the case. As the title of this post shows, more work means working longer hours. But it usually means more money in the long run as well. Just donâ€™t forget that learning how to work smart allows you to keep your current schedule while still increasing your income.Â
