Is freelance project management a thing?

Hello everyone.

I am currently a student, on track to graduate in May with a degree in organizational leadership. So far I have a particular interest in project management, and I have always liked the idea of being my own boss. Is it possible to make a living as a freelance project manager? Or can I at least supplement my income?

Long-term, I think it would be cool to build a client base and open up a project management firm. But that is just a dream at the moment.

It is a thing, but I strongly suggest you intern and learn in the real world before jumping into freelance. Freelance isn't about learning on the job. Clients want individuals who have experience.
