Over a decade ago, I was driving to work, it was raining and there was yet another accident on the freeway, making my two hour round trip commute even longer. I could feel my anxiety rise – and not just that day, but every single Sunday when I dreaded the upcoming week. Then I had a thought.
Maybe I can change things. Maybe there is something more.
What if instead of sitting behind the wheel for two hours a day, I could work on amazing projects, for clients I love, earning better than I was previously? What if I could live where I wanted without being tied to an office 9-5 each day?
Today looks much different
I launched a freelance writing business in 2007 and it has given me unbelievable freedom. My family moved to Hawaii which was a dream that seemed unattainable prior to freelancing. Today I get to call the shots including who I work with, when I work, and when I spend time with my family. I can take a field trip with my son at noon on a Wednesday afternoon without worry or stress. But my journey to a successful freelance business wasn’t simple. I learned a lot of hard lessons along the way.
Are you stuck? Can I help you?
I’ve learned how to find clients that pay professional rates (most of my projects work out to around $100+ an hour). I know how to bring stability to a freelance business so you walk into each month knowing that your rent or mortgage will get paid. And I understand the art of finding high-quality clients, faster.
Maybe your dream isn’t to live in Hawaii. Maybe it’s traveling the world, or staying right where you are but giving up that slavish daily commute and making all your kid’s soccer practices. Whatever it is, you can achieve it. But you must start now.
Don’t wait. The time will never be just right.”
