Thinking of freelancing for a living?
It’s a good thought to have. If you’ve the chance to do it and can sustain yourself and family financially, go for it.
Let me offer some advice on a few things:
Thing One – Take a long, hard look at the worst that could happen and ask yourself if you’re willing to go through and capable of surviving that scenario.
Thing Two – Build your business whilst working. Use or build your network, and establish yourself as a freelance writer outside of—but without quitting—your “day job.”
Thing Three – As far as nuts and bolts advice, get a Website, business cards, and a business plan.
I’m happy to share what worked for me and what didn’t work for me on those topics and more.
