I’m currently in the process of securing a column with a major media outlet and happened to see an email from a blog reader that asked me how they could get their work featured in major media outlets. Freelancers are very concerned with getting their work in major media outlets because it helps them build […]

At this stage in my business, it’s becoming apparent that I need to start scaling more. More specifically, it’s starting to look like I should hire sub-contractors to help me with some of the writing workload. That way I can focus on the other projects on my plate. Okay, I’m actually going to call myself […]

At some point in your freelance business, you may realize you need to begin outsourcing. It kind of looks like holding your head in your hands feeling frustrated because you’re exhausted from doing everything yourself. It could also look like realizing you can continue to grow your revenue if you simply had more time. Unfortunately, […]

One of the biggest complaints about freelancing is that it’s difficult to scale a freelance business.

I get questions like, “Wait, you can work from anywhere?” or “You have clients outside of the Miami area? How is that possible?” all the time. For some reason, it’s as if […]
