I’m packing up anything I’m not using daily this week in preparation for the move in mid-September. I’m amazed at the things I’ve collected over the years that I don’t really need. I had an entire dumpster’s worth of stuff in my house that has accumulated over the years.

What are you storing that you no longer need? Not just physically in your house but perhaps mentally?

What about when it comes to getting paid for your writing? Are you holding on to old ideas?

I remember when I first started freelancing, I took jobs where the client told me what to write, how to write it, when to have it done, and how much they were going to pay me.

I just assumed that’s how it should work. I’d always had a boss telling me what to do.

One day I realized working from home wasn’t much different from working a 9 to 5 job. I took a course from journalist Rebecca Weber. She made me realize that freelance writing was a business and I was a CEO providing a service to others.

It was like she flipped a switch in my brain.

I had taught entrepreneurship to youth in the past. I knew how freeing it could be.

I went from just working from home to being an entrepreneur. That mindset shift put the freedom back into freelancing for me.

My goal is to help you do the same thing if that’s what you want. It will take work yes, but it doesn’t have to be 24/7 all the time at all. You can build a life that will give you the freedom to live life on your terms.

The first step is knowing how to find clients whenever you want them.

I can show you five different ways I find clients and a system to keep track of them all.
