The first two days of this week have taught me that I need to prioritize, get uber-efficient, and decide what really matters and what can be trimmed away from the ever-increasing work load. I’m not one to say no to a job so I currently have one full-time job (which I just went back to this past Monday), a freelance fashion catalog copywriting job, a guide writing job on Shopping.com, a featured contributor job on Yahoo!, and a bi-monthly guest blogging position on How To Be A Redhead. Can anyone say overload?

I realized that I was in dire need of an efficiency makeover of sorts when I got an email saying that I would need to attend a fit meeting for my catalog writing job before I had accrued enough vacation time from my new full-time job. Yikes. By my clock I thought I had at least two months until the next meeting…not so.

I’m sure all of you freelancers and business owners out there have been here before, or perhaps you’re in this position right now, so I have collected a couple helpful articles which have helped me begin the process of slowly working my way through the incredible balancing act of working a steady full-time job while freelancing.
