Have you ever dreamt of making a full-time income while traveling to exotic places all over the world? Have you ever dreamt of being your own boss, setting your own hours, setting your own pay, and living a life of freedom that few are privileged to experience? Do you enjoy writing as a medium of expression? Can you do it almost every day without getting tired? Great!
I started freelance writing while I was in my junior year of college. For some reason, the thought of spending a 35 year slog slaving away in a cubicle for an unappreciative boss and disinterested coworkers filled me with dread. I wanted to find a way to both enjoy my life and support my future family at the same time.
I had previously done internet marketing and had a fairly good handle on how to represent myself, but at the time, I didn’t have the guidance that was necessary to transform my life. Luckily, in this day and age, it is both much easier and much harder to become a freelance writer than it was in the past. Before, you’d have to rely on getting lucky with a connection or endlessly contacting webmasters for guest posts. Today, you can literally begin a lucrative career in as little as a month with the right preparation.
Truthfully, there are more opportunities to become a freelancer today than there ever were before; especially after the recent pandemic. The subtle art of becoming a successful, established writer isn’t realized by putting out endless streams of mindless, untargeted content that doesn’t help anyone. You MUST become the master of your niche and give your readers great content that they will flock to time and time again.
