As a freelancer, how much money do you make in a day?

Hi!

I am 17 years old and I started my web dev business a while ago (started coding at like 11-12 years old). I was stuck with a big contract that took me 500h for like 2500$. Not fun, but I am making my money back with the changes they ask me (and that I charge them 50$/hour). Like, yesterday I made 300$ in an evening.

So, while doing that, I started to look for new contracts and it’s going remarkably well. Like, I got a 500$ contract with an email and a phone call for a website I make from a theme. It doesn’t take a lot of time, it’s affordable for my client and easy for me (I do some SEO and optimization). This website would take me less than a day to do.

So, I started thinking: I just made around 1000$ in two days. And for a 17 years old, it’s pretty mindblowing. I find it hard to believe that if I spend my summer doing that, I will make 10k$/month. I was wondering if it’s sustainable.

Did I get a stroke of luck? Are those the average numbers for a freelancer? Do you think I will be able to sustain that on the long term?
