A lifelong avid reader and writer, my BA is in English Lit. My MBA is with a concentration in finance. I’ve worked as an assistant to a publisher, a financial analyst, a strategic planning analyst, a management consultant, and a full-time freelance writer. Along the way I’ve often written about complex topics for a general audience. That’s just what I intend to do here.
I chose the freelance lifestyle because of the flexibility it offered. I write on a variety of topics for a variety of clients. I’ve learned a lot along the way from my experience as well as from the experience of other successful – and not so successful – freelance writers.
Writing is a business. You need to get work, do the work, bill and collect for the work, and decide upon a mix of clients that will keep your bills paid as economic conditions fluctuate. It’s not easy but it is do-able. I’ll be writing about ways to maximize your likelihood of success.
If you have a question about something, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or leave a comment. I’ll get back to you directly and most likely cover your question in a post as well.
