During all those par­ties, I’ve got­ten pulled aside sev­er­al times by soon-to-be col­lege fresh­men who want to know if they can free­lance while attend­ing col­lege. Considering I did exact­ly that, I think free­lanc­ing while in col­lege can be a good way to bring in some mon­ey, as long as you are pre­pared to han­dle both your com­mit­ments to your stud­ies and your com­mit­ments to your clients. There are a few steps you can take to make the whole sit­u­a­tion eas­i­er, as well.
