I’m Holly Antle, and I’ve been freelancing for about 11 years now as a content writer and copywriter. In the past 11 years, I’ve:
- Had two children (bringing my grand total up to 5!)
- Moved 8 times
- Had my first grandchild
- Started raising chickens, and
- Traveled all over the world.
I learned how to do this work without getting an expensive degree or paying a ton of money for school. Everything I’ve accomplished has been thanks to Google and a LOT of trial and error! And now, I’m going to share my tips, tricks, and mistakes with you.
Every business needs things that they can’t do with their own employees. Maybe they need some expertise for a short-term project, or maybe they just want to pay someone who has a higher skill level than what they can hire locally. Businesses of any size can hire freelancers to supplement their team or get things done. Freelancers may work doing administrative work, graphic design, computer programming, copywriting, marketing, product development, data entry, and more.
My specialty is in copywriting and content writing. You know every time you go to a website and read words? Or see an ad on social media? That’s all done by copywriters like me, and most of us are freelancers. But maybe you’re more artistic than I am, or you’ve got a more analytical mind than me. Graphic design or programming might be a great fit for you instead. There are tons of opportunities for freelancers, and most of them pay more than employment and offer far more flexibility.
Is Freelancing Right For You?
You should consider a career as a freelancer if:
- You want to be the one in control of your income and your schedule, instead of depending on others
- You’re motivated and self-directed – good at staying on task and getting things done
- You love to learn new things and have a lot of curiosity; you’re always trying to gain more knowledge!
- You’re a pretty independent person and probably a free thinker. You’re comfortable trying new things.
Freelancing isn’t the right fit for everyone. Some people thrive in a 9-to-5 job where they’ve got lots of oversight, structure, and supervision. But if you’re ready to learn more about how to build a REAL business on your own schedule, I invite you to attend my next FREE webinar.
The upcoming webinar will talk about the different paths available to freelancers and will help you determine whether freelancing is the right fit for you. There’s no obligation and no cost, so sign up to receive updates as soon as registration opens for the next session.
