One great way of earning money while between jobs is to opt for freelance writing work. It’s also a great boost for you to start your very own online business (if that’s your cup of tea). However, if you want to be a freelance writer, you need to love it.
A good thing about becoming a freelance writer is you can have your own content writing business with many choices available to you. You can choose where to work, when you want to work, which clients to choose, and what projects you want to work on. Here are a couple of things to think about if you’re serious about this insane business.
You can choose where you want to work but choose wisely. Having one’s own freelancing business means you can choose to do it anywhere you feel like. You can do it because all it takes is an internet connection and a laptop. If you don’t have a laptop, you could use your desktop computer too. So don’t worry.
The best place for a flourishing business is a room without distractions. You’ll need your privacy if you plan on working from home. If you have kids watch out, you’ll need to adjust. While you want to keep your workspace private and productive, you’ll still have some distractions. Just keep them to a minimum.
You can work whenever you want but you better work. The best part of freelancing work is that you can squeeze it in whenever you feel comfortable. However, don’t get into the habit of never being comfortable. You may want to consider following normal business hours so that you can be in touch with your clients while they’re at work without having them worry about contacting you if you need to. If you need to get night hours in and have children, then it is best to work once they are asleep.
Speaking of kids, once you start earning some money at this, you might actually start getting some sleep at night. For example, getting daycare may be an option for you. But don’t count on it. I can tell you I never opt for this. I would rather lose sleep so I can spend time with my kids. That’s a benefit I take advantage of when I work from home.
Because when your kids start gong to school or they’ve grown up, they won’t want you around. So you’ll be glad you took the time to be with them when you had the chance. That’s once great thing about working from home, if you play your cards right you’ll have time to get the best of both worlds.
