I have a goal to go self-employed by the time DS is at school (3 years away). At present I am in a static 9-5 job, 4 days a week. I think my skills are transferable (web-based responsive design), but I worry about finding enough clients and giving them the time they need - DS sometimes does not go to sleep until 8pm!
Has anyone else juggled job, kids, housework and a freelance business? How did you do it and build up enough of a base to make the leap?
