Over five years I have been a freelance writer, in addition to writing books, creating online magazines, working and looking after a young family. My motivation is what pushed me to work late nights, while the children were sleeping, with the aim to change my life and earn immediate funds to pay for the ever-growing money that our daily lives need and want.
I started the experience blind but went in with guts and found work immediately. Not only that but I was working to earn a weekly income, which provided me with the flexibility to be at home with my children part-time and work the other part-time hours.
I have so much knowledge in the industry, in addition to all the fears felt by a freelancer, such as will their be enough work around when there are heaps of competitors (the answer is yes, but I explore why there is enough).
Plus, I show you how to run and manage your own business. Because once you become a freelancer, not only do you need to learn how to manage your time to meet your client’s deadlines, you also need to know how to think of your freelance writing as a business.
I can assure you, once you take my online course and follow the steps and keep up with the program and then continue to follow it after it ends, over the following twelve months you will see freelance writing opportunities coming your way and did I mention paid opportunities!
If you are serious about getting into writing, then wait no longer. Sign up today so you can start earning an income to give you the freedom to work for yourself and be anywhere in the world.

I am a perfectionist (in some areas) but I am also a huge scheduler. Similar to a task manager. Sometimes that is how I see myself. But its not me. I am happy, free and adventurous. This is me.
So when I started this year with some pretty massive and incredibly awesome goals, I knew I had to pick up my game and plan my days so I could make progress and do what I love.
Being a creative person means sometimes, I want to bend the rules. I don’t want to sit down at 9 am in a stuffy office and work. Sometimes, I want to get outside, feel the fresh air and breathe. And sometimes, I turn up the music and just feel the vibe, hear the words and close my eyes. The truth is, as a creative person I want to be anywhere and everywhere that spurs on my inner emotions. Because it is with these feelings that empower me to be more of who I am.
Obviously though, ideas do not come to life when one doesn’t work at them. But with all my planning and scheduling over the next few months, I realised a couple of things:
- I was becoming stressed. I just poured all my thoughts and tasks onto paper and put them against a day and that started to fill the page – very quickly! But I was over-tasking, as in, I was scheduling too much work into my day. Even if I spent twenty hours working solidly on these tasks, what about the rest of my day. Where was the fun?
- That’s when I realised … I forgot to make time for me and for fun and exploration in these days but how was I going to make time for this?
- The other issue was, I would look at the days ahead to see what was planned. Bad idea. I would finish the tasks for the day and then start on tasks for the coming days. But I was over-doing it. My life became about fulfilling these tasks rather than having them fit in my life.
It is important to plan and make time to work on your goals. But it is just as important to make time for fun and play. Because without fun and play, the person you are becomes nothing more than a unconscious ghost who has forgotten the real reason for the goals in the first place – not to lose oneself but to find oneself.
