It's Game Time!
Hello to all freelancers like me!
Oh well, it looks like that the weekend is fast approaching once again. Some of you may be taking a break, while others are experimenting on something for their dreams. Well of course, every freelancer has a dream to become successful, and so am I. The reason that you want to succeed as a freelancer is because you want to help yourself, your family and others who can make a difference as well in their respective fields. But most of us here in this world are relying on office jobs and receives payslip every two weeks, only to find out that their hardwork was drained away due to so many bills to pay.
The reason? It's because they are not open minded in looking for some alternative ways to earn income, and freelancing is one of the best choices you ever make. Although I respect other ways for us to earn money on top of our office job, but freelancing is the basic part. But this is not only applicable for those who are already working, but also for students as well. This is one reason that in this article that I'm going to share today, it is all about balancing your mind and time on studying and working as a student freelancer.
First of all, how come that a student can become a freelancer even though that he or she should prioritize studying? You know what guys, I was there before when I become a freelancer while I am a graduating student. My dad is usually against it, but I told him my deepest reasons in which I can balance my time between studying and freelancing. I was introduced to freelancing way back in April 2009 when I have a summer class. It opened my eyes that I could earn extra money on top of my dad's allowance to me despite that he's against it for a bit. However, it does give me the advantage to save some money for the future.
There was one time that me and my dad had an argument that I spend too much time on freelancing than my studies, but the thing is I only have two subjects in college on my final semester, and it's not going to make a conflict anyway. But for those of you who have many subjects and wants to do freelancing at the same time, I think this article is to be meant for you, and I'm going to start this tutorial right now.
Now the question is, how are you going to balance your mind and commitment between studying and working as a freelancer, and I think it's going to be that simple.....
1. First, you need to have an organizer. It could be in your notebook or on the computer itself. For sure, you will be needing this in order to stay on track between your studying time and your working time as a freelancer.
2. Next, you should look over your class schedules and see what time are you usually vacant. If working students in the library or administrators office can balance their time between working and studying, so are we. I suggest that you should not do freelancing when your break time is only 1 to 2 hours before you report to another class.
3. The next thing you do is to identify which vacant schedule is suitable enough for you to do some extra freelancing work. As students, you still have to prioritize more on studying as this tutorial is only meant for you to have extra money and not making it full time yet. For example, if you have a long vacant schedule which is five to six hours before the class, you can simply take like 2-3 hours in doing some freelance work. However, if your schedule is so tight, you might wanna do that during night time and spend some extra 1-2 hours for that. But I would strongly advice that you should skip freelancing when it's an exam day, as you really need to study in order to pass the exam.
4. Make sure that you have enough rest, at least six to eight hours of sleep. However, if you have high resistance by taking multivitamins and a healthy diet, for sure you can still have the energy to do some extra work like no other. In this way, it's your chance that the mind will be fully relaxed for another round of study and freelancing tomorrow.
I don't know if you guys can relate to this, but at least this would be helpful for students a bit. If you have any questions or concerns, just reply on this thread of mine. Cheers!
