re: Freelancing in addition of a day job VIEW POST


So you have a job and you want to freelance? I'd not take the risks. You'll probably burnout and loose money. If you want to earn more, you can either ask your boss for a promotion or find a better job. You can, of course, go completely freelance.

I'd not mix a regular job with the freelance workflow.


Thanks for the reply!

I'm aware of that risk of course, that's why I try to gather opinions about it.

The goal is indeed to earn more and asking for a promotion isn't an option. Finding a better job isn't that easy either.


I've done a bit of stuff like this, and yeah, pushing too hard is a huge risk.

Could you scale back your full-time job? Ask to be part-time?

Thanks for the reply, Ben!

Scaling back my full-time job is not an option, unfortunately.

In fact I'm mostly looking for a way to make money on my free time, that's why I thought about freelancing. The alternative would be to try to make money with my own side projects (eventually) but I believe they're not the right kind of projects for that.
