The Frustrated Freelancer: How I spend my working day

I seem to work all the time. But at the end of the week, I have so few billable hours. What's going wrong?

Tomorrow is a busy day for me. I have work for three different clients and, as always, i'd like to not go over 9 hours to do it. Will I end up with 9 billable hours? Ha! Not even close.

Here's the day I planned:

8am-11:30 Edit 25 pages for client "Dabbie"

11:30-2pm Write a blog article for client "Kathleen"

2-4: Finish draft of blog article for client "Jeff"

4-6 Finish draft of another blog article for client "Jeff"

No breaks, I know. And if could actually pull this off, I'd end with 9 billable hours. In truth, I average 4 billable hours a day, and usually end up working until bed time.

Tomorrow, let's see where the time goes!
