Where Are All the Writing Jobs?

Where Are All the Writing Jobs?By Angie Nelson

So you’re starting out in the freelance writing business, you’re excited about the freedom it offers you, and on your first day you sit down, open up your laptop … and realize you have no idea where to find jobs. Or perhaps you’ve started writing with one or two and you have no clue where to look in order to expand your business. This is a very common situation for new freelancers. Fortunately there are many writing jobs available if you know where to look.

Employee vs. Entrepreneur Mindset

One thing you must learn early on in your freelancing career is that you are an entrepreneur and not an employee. Most freelancers come from corporate backgrounds and see themselves as employees of their clients. As an employee you were given work, a manual of how to do it, and almost no freedom or creativity in how you did your job. As an entrepreneur you have to hunt down your work, there isn’t one set of rules on how to do it, and you have a lot of room to be creative and negotiate. Think like an entrepreneur first and foremost and you will begin to think of ideas for finding work. The following ideas should get you started.

Corporate Clients

Corporate clients can be used as a catch-all phrase to mean anything from the small business around the corner to large Fortune 500 companies. If you are contacting a business or conducting business-to-business (B2B) prospecting you’re targeting corporate clients. (more…)

Tightrope Balance: Working from Home When a Family Member is Sick

Tightrope Balance: Working from Home When a Family Member is Sick  By Cathi Nelson

I have been living the sandwich generation reality this past year. My sweet, 85-year-old Dad began a cycle of declining health that concluded with his passing away this month. All of this started a year ago when every few weeks I would get a call that my Dad was back in the hospital. The hospital would stabilize him, we would get him home, and the cycle would soon begin again.

All of this took a toll on my family and business. As the work from home family member, I have the most flexibility, thus a lot of the responsibility fell to me. I was often distracted and frustrated by how little I was getting done.

Here are 4 coping strategies I learned, 2 for my business and 2 for my family.

1. Document Your Systems – This is Not What You Do, but How You Do it:

How do you get from point A to point Z and can someone follow your steps if you are unavailable. These systems can be as simple as when and how you manage your social media to managing your on-line shopping cart. You will rest easier if you have a system in place that someone can follow if you are unavailable. (more…)

How to Steer Clear of Work at Home Interruptions

How to Steer Clear of Work at Home Interruptions By Anneke Steenkamp

As a woman that is already working from home, you will know that we are all different. Apart from working in home offices worlds apart, having different freelance clients, and different sized families; we also work optimally in different ways.

Some writers might need dead silence in order to focus, while others need to type to the beat of their favorite song in order to be productive. In this sense, I’m a bit of both. But no matter your preferences, we all do have something in common, and that’s that freelancing is basically synonymous with interruptions.

Those of you with children at home will know this all too well. One moment you are in the zone designing the most beautiful business card for a client, and the next your 3 year-old pulls the table cloth from under you to have your coffee spill all over your brand new Mac.

Life is unpredictable, but we have the power to create order. Let us look at a few ways in which we can establish truly productive hours at work (home).

Block What Bothers You:

One of my biggest downfalls is most definitely my addiction to Instagram and Facebook. To scroll down the feed is not even a conscious decision anymore – every few minutes I just find my fingers scrolling down the news feed and frantically liking what is being produced by the rest of the world.

111 Online Platforms to Sell Your Stuff for Money

Online Platforms to Sell Your Stuff for MoneyBy Holly Reisem Hanna

When I first became a stay at home mom, we went from being a two income family to an one income family. And even though I had planned financially for this transition, I was surprised at how quickly my savings dwindled down. To help pay for all of the activities that my daughter and I were enrolled in, I started selling various things online. I sold books, CDs, used baby gear, clothes, shoes, handbags, and furniture. In fact, I still sell stuff online today. It’s quick, easy, and it gives you some extra spending cash.

So if you’re looking to make some extra money, declutter your home, or simplify your life, here are 111 online platforms where you can sell your new and used stuff for money.

Antique and Vintage Items:

Do you have vintage items or antiques that you no longer want or need? Then sell them online. Set up an online account, list your items, and get paid minus a small user fee.

Arts, Crafts, and Handmade Items:

Do you make gorgeous jewelry or hand-knit scarves? Then sell your handmade goods on websites like Etsy. Each platform functions as an online marketplace or shop where visitors can purchase your wares. Listing fees and commission rates will vary depending on the platform. (more…)
