From talking to aspiring freelance writers, lurking around Reddit, and thinking back to the days when I was just getting started as a freelancer, I realize breaking into the game as a wordsmith isn’t easy. When it comes down to how to be a freelance writer, most people starting out struggle to get clients who will even pay a fraction of a livable wage… if they can find a client at all. And this is a problem.
When many think of freelancers, they picture writers. This makes sense, as a very large amount of freelancers are writers, and lots of folks want to break into freelancing through writing. But how hard is it to find and land freelancing writing jobs for beginners?
For those looking for a path to self employment, entrepreneurship, and financial freedom, freelancing sites are very appealing. There are a wide array of opportunities on these platforms, so there is something for just about anyone. Seriously! You can often find gigs that are appropriate for all levels of skill and experience. Plus, there are plenty of people ready to hire those who have never freelanced before. It’s the easiest way to find gigs and launch your freelancing career. Sounds great, right?
When the concept of being a digital nomad first came on my radar, finding legit online jobs was one of the biggest hurdles that kept me out of the remote, live-anywhere workforce.
