My freelance writing story
I started my freelance business about 5 years ago. While I was trying to get my business off the ground. No one around me knew what I was doing. I would frequently describe work that I was pitching or clients that I was pursuing and people would ask me if I was sure this is legit or if I was getting involved in some kind of scam.
The world has come a long way in that short of time but most people still don’t have anyone to ask for advice. It’s hard to figure out where to start. So, many people jump in on their own and start doing research. The problem? You can become paralyzed by information overload. Ask me how I know.

However, most freelancers I know (myself included) say that their businesses went a little bit like this:

I went through a lot of trial and error to build my business the way I want to and ultimately achieve the success that allowed me to do this full-time. There isn’t a single course out there that can guarantee that you won’t stumble along the way to building your business. However, learning from real experiences is one of the best ways to improve your business and accelerate your growth as a freelancer.
