I wish I had more freelance assignments

I get about one freelance assignment every few months or so, which gives me a couple of hundred extra bucks for pocket money.

If I had three freelance assignments every week, I could make as much as my full-time wage.

No, make that more because I would likely not be taxed.

If I had four freelance assignments a week, I would be making more than my full-time job.

But that would also mean I would be working a whole lot harder.

One freelance assignment typically takes me three days to complete at the very most, if I work hard.

With three assignments a week, I would be working as hard as my full-time job.

But that would also mean meals at home and not needing to pay for transport costs. Then again, no annual leave or paid medical leave.

For now, my freelance assignments keep me in a good mood. That helps me push on in writing for Persona Paper too.

Don't assume no tax from online jobs. Tax people know about these sites and require the companies to submit details. Better safe than sorry.

It's not always easy. I hope you are able to find some more work.

Since you have more time on hand now, why don't you learn about investing?

You could try to pick up just one or two a month. That would add a lot to your income

I am too! I just didn't mention it as it's not taking up too much time at the moment.
