Do you have any good advice?

I am currently considering delving into the online freelance journalism job market. I was a student writer in my college's office of public affairs. I wrote press releases, student life blogs and had a featured article in our bi-annual magazine. What advice would you have for someone wanting to make a living as a freelance writer? What are some steps that I should take? How much time needs to be invested in kickstarting this career?
