Just the other day, my adorable kid neighbors across the street put out a lemonade stand. I thought it was cute, but another part of me wondered how I could improve upon the lemonade stand idea when it came to my own kids.

Fortunately, having a deadbeat client who owes me money doesn’t happen very often because I’ve put systems and processes in place.

One of the most common questions I get asked from aspiring freelancers is how to build a writing portfolio from scratch.

In January I reached freelancer bliss – I was a month ahead on all of my bills. For an entire month, I wouldn’t have to wait until client payments came in to pay the credit card.
