Freelancing is easy. Piece of cake. Growing a freelance writing business has been a chore and a half. The easy part was preceded by years of persistent, intelligent practice.
The gig rocks because:
-You set your salary
-You choose your work
-You can turn down poor job matches
-You set your own schedule
-Once you develop a rep people will seek you out
I have been freelance writing for over a year. I dig it. The issue with freelancing for me, honestly, was that I hated it at first. My ego wanted to make money online through different ventures. I was tied to cash gifting, advertising and a few other prosperity channels.
After having a hissy fit, throwing a few tantrums and extracting the ego poison from my being – still some juice there – I accepted freelance writing as a fine way to pad my online income.
I’ve made thousands of dollars working writing gigs on a part time basis. If I abandoned my blog – which is not happening too soon….big vision – I’d make tens of thousands of dollars freelancing. My writing skills, combined with my networking skills, would allow me to take on more and more work to supplement my income.
