I am an 18-year-old boy who will be educating in university soon. I wondered if there is anybody who started freelancing besides studying. By freelancing I don't mean a big business, but using typical skills like typing, using front-end for web creation, or even translating content... and so on. Just to gain some more money for living - universities over here don't support students as well as many regions.
How difficult is it to start freelancing while attending university? Is this going to be very hard or cause some problems in my education? Or on the contrary, it will be very cool and it works out?
If anyone has tried freelancing while attending secondary education, how did it go? I heard that like 60% of freelancers start their business as a second job at first, and after that it becomes real. So I guessed this situation may be like mine when I'm studying (it's my first job) and working as a freelancer (my second job).
Answers should be supported by experience or other evidence. In addition, I would also appreciate advice on what to do and what not to do.
