Say again? I know you hear all kinds of stories about small business owners who work non-stop, and I’m sure many are true. In all honesty, however, those folks aren’t doing it right. The successful freelance writers I know make good money without working themselves to death. They’ve figured out how to keep their businesses running like finely tuned violins. And many of them know exactly how many hours to work each week before they hit the point of diminishing return where the value of time lost becomes greater than the value of money earned.
In other words, they could spend more time working but would rather trade the money for time spent doing other things. If you think about it, that’s all life is – a series of tradeoffs between time and money. The problem for most people is they are stuck in full-time jobs or career tracks where the tradeoff is no longer optional. For freelancers, however, your time is your own, and it’s up to you to decide how and when you’ll trade it for cash. Lots of people call this freedom.
Keep in mind the freelance lifestyle is one that inherently saves you time anyway. Simply not commuting to work every day has added more than one year of extra time to my life over the past 25 years! And traffic jams? They are almost a thing of the past too because I rarely schedule business meetings near rush hour. Cha-ching! More time in the bank. Guess what else? Most freelancers I know rarely work an eight-hour day. I probably average about six. And I still manage to make a terrific living. You might work more, you might work less. Up to you. Freedom.
This kind of freelancing success doesn’t happen overnight, of course, and it definitely takes hard work. As I’ve told many a writer’s group, it took me a few years to achieve financial success with my freelancing – not because I wasn’t a good writer, but because I wasn’t a smart business owner.
That’s why I created Business Boot Camp for Freelance Writers, a course designed to teach you in about eight hours what it took me years to learn. This online course explains how to implement the business processes you need so you can become financially successful at freelance writing.
