Sally Ormond, managing director at Briarcopywriting.com, said that time management is "always an issue" for freelancers, and the best course of action is to plan the week as far as possible, which means to-do lists.
"Every week, I write down what needs to be done the following week, including which days I'll work on which client's work to ensure all deadlines are hit, when I'll write my own blogs, et cetera. That way, nothing gets missed," she added.
When working on several projects during a day, Ms Ormond suggested dividing the day into segments - allocating one or two hours per project, taking a break and then continuing with the next project.
The expert said that pricing is also another stumbling block, so it is imperative that people decide how they are going to base their pricing structure from the outset.
"Many favour hourly rates, but that can seriously limit your earning potential," she added.
