You may have noticed I’ve been rather ghostly lately. Please rest assured I’m okay. I suffered a few personal setbacks last month. Believe it or not, they actually worked to sharpen my focus and keep me on track toward my financial goals. Doors opened up for me that wouldn’t have otherwise done so. Some might call it luck. I choose to believe that I’ve learned enough in my journey thus far to have brought about the best possible results I could have given that situation.
So, I got in The Write Life. For me, this is a major accomplishmenT. It’s been 11 days since I finished Gina Horkey’s course, 30 Days or Less to Freelance Writing Success. And just like that, I’m in The friggin’ Write Life! Words aren’t enough to describe the elation I feel when I see my contributor’s profile on the site. more “30 Days of BloggingExpanding on My Article for The Write Life“…
Diversifying your online business opens up income streams you wouldn’t otherwise have access to. Expanding your business is a no-brainer. For example, this WordPress struggle I’ve been on has me seriously thinking about writing a course and offering Web design services as part of my business’ offerings.
Most of the pitches I’ve sent out have been cold pitches in which I’ve had to propose topics to a prospective client. At first, this felt uncomfortable for me. I’d become anxious, afraid that I’d made the greatest, dumbest typo in history before hitting the Send button. I still remember the first time I pitched The Huffington Post. I nearly hyperventilated! more “On Effective Cold Pitching”…
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, and I have something HUGE to be grateful for.
Yesterday, I submitted to and was accepted by The Write Life!!! It’s almost too much to believe. 24 days in and I made it into one of my favorite resources for freelance writers! I’m ecstatic! And I’m optimistic about the future.
In recent days, my health has declined. Setbacks happen. Otherwise, I’m doing quite well. Despite this, I wanted to post this because I feel that some may be wondering about what’s next for The Freelance Dance.
