Tell me about people who freelance in different fields simultaneously, in order to increase their income, based on skills, talents, hobbies etc. Personal stories preferred.

I'm trying to figure out if this kind of 'career' is for me, in the long run. that is, being self-employed, entrepreneurial, having more control over what I do, maybe starting my own business empire :)
I would list my talents as programming, writing and good appreciation of science and engineering issues from a bachelor and masters degree in Engineering.
A PhD is in the plans, and if I choose to do it full time I would need a side job with flexible hours.
So, fire away, let me know how you renaissance freelancers get by!
