How To Start A Freelance Writing Business

The question I get asked more than anything as a content creator is, how did you become a freelance writer? The idea started years ago as a backup plan, actually. I was working in a career I didn’t love and wanted to find a way to switch careers, make more money, and free up time so I wouldn’t have to miss my kids’ sporting events and other activities. 

I had experience in public speaking, but it’s hard to book speaking gigs while still working a day job. I couldn’t afford to lose income to build a speaking career, so I turned to writing. I had no formal training or education but loved to write. My writing ability has come a long way since those first assignments. At least, I think so. I still have much room for improvement. 

In November 2019, I left my day job to become a full-time freelance writer and content creator. Since that time, I’ve been able to more than double the income from my old job and create a more flexible work schedule that better aligns with my personal and family goals and interests. 

In this episode, you’re going to learn more about how I started as a freelance writer, the steps you can take to create a freelance writing business and some tools that can help you become a better writer and business owner.
