  1. I will definitely have to check these out! Followed you on Google+, Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter. Shared as well!

    I’m currently working as a night shift nurse Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights… 13 hour shifts. This lets me stay home with my kids during the week… BUT… the stress of the job is killing me and I spend too much of my week recuperating. I’m working hard on building my blog and my YouTube channel, but I’m still in the “work really hard right now for an awesome future” stage. Maybe if I can do some paid freelance writing I can at least cut down the number of shifts I have to work each week.


    • Hey Elisabeth!
      Greetings. Appreciate the follows :). Wow, you have a tough schedule there. I can assure you that you have made a great decision. Freelance writing can be very rewarding if you make the right decisions. All the best with this new direction. God bless!

    • Hi Roy. Thanks for the kind sentiments. I believe your calculations may be way off regarding the minimum wage. Remember that gifted writers can complete say a 500 word document in one hour or less. $50 per hour is far greater than the minimum wage in all states according to this document which shows that the minimum hourly minimum wage is between $7.25 and $11.50 per hour. If a writer can work for just 6 hours per day at $50 per hour, that’s $300 per day which is $1,500 per week (assuming 5 days of work) which is $78,000 per annum which is way above the minimum wage.

  2. Hi, followed you on facebook and will share on twitter. I’m trying to do more freelance work so am looking for advice and tips. Your book is just what I need.
