We’re crossing over the six-month mark of 2016. Half the year has gone by, your taxes for the second quarter have (hopefully) been paid and things are a little slow as people head out on vacation. This makes it the perfect time for you to do a mid-year business review. I used to avoid mid-year […]

When I started freelance writing a few years ago, I had no idea about all the “business” and “legalese” that may come attached to it when you begin to see some success. If I’m being completely honest, when I started freelance writing I had no idea people could make a full-blown career out of it, […]

I often times get emails from blog readers and coaching clients where they express their underlying fear that they believe there may be too much competition for freelancing. I’m personally not a big believer in competition and I’m positive that this mindset has helped me with my own success. Instead of worrying about what other […]

Use Pinterest to Increase Traffic

I’ve previously mentioned how the summertime is usually a slow time for my business. I also mentioned how I use this time to work on big projects that move my brand forward. This year, one of those projects looked like learning, understanding and setting up Pinterest to increase traffic to my blog. Why You Need […]

The other day I was on Facebook when I saw someone post a question in regards to Twitter. They basically wanted to know what the point of Twitter was because they didn’t see any advantage to using it. The reality is that different social media channels have different uses.

I often times get asked about how I was able to self-publish a book back in 2014 and how it completely changed my business overnight. The reality is, self-publishing a book probably isn’t as difficult as many people make it seem. Granted, self-publishing a book isn’t easy, per say. Writing a book is one of […]

Online haters. They are everywhere. In fact, they are so pervasive sometimes that many people are afraid of putting themselves and their businesses out there online. They are terrified of people judging them and are afraid of falling victim to online bullying. I’m not going to lie to you, you may need some thick skin […]

Like most freelancers, I work from home a lot of the time. While I recently started hanging out a co-working space (more on that later), I still work from home a lot. Also like many freelancers, I don’t live alone and I take care of people. I may not have kids, but I help with […]

I often get asked if someone can turn a hobby blog into a business. Meaning, whether or not they can turn their blog, which is mostly them writing about a hobby like fashion or beauty, into a full-fledged viable business. People seem to assume that this a feat accomplished by only a select few. After […]
