How should I build a resume and portfolio for work I didn't get a degree in??

I am about to graduate with a Business Admin degree, but took on a part-time Content Coordinator role for a print magazine. I really enjoy being a part of the magazine, but I don't want to restart my degree for journalism. What advice would you give to someone who wants to start freelancing themselves as a business writer/in publications to build a resume and portfolio, and how do I go about marketing myself to new clients?

I am 30, a freelance writer, ADHD, with too many interests, confused what to choose. Any help?

I have multiple interests like filmmaking, movies, art/digital art, fiction writing/novel, screenwriting, basically anything related to story and the craft of storytelling in any medium- writing, visual, etc. With that, I am also too driven for pyschology, self-help, sprituality and philosphy stuff. Then some business aspect with blogging or online stuff attracts me too with the same with Youtube. I am fascinated with content creation for a long time. Having diagnosed with adhd, choosing one thing feels painful and like i am leaving a part of my personality behind, missing out. Even though i entertained the fact that i can be all or most or some one by one over time, and not have to choose. you know the specialization vs generalization thing. But struggling with the concept of not being master in one as well. Any help on this, any resource or anything will be great!

Do multiple free-lance careers work well together?

I'm going to be an undergraduate studying harp performance, but am also interested in writing and translating. Have you found that balancing multiple different careers took a lot of organizing, but proves feasible, or is it spreading your time and training too thin? #writer #musician #translation #multi-tasking #freelance-writing
