Learn How to Start Your Own Writing Business
Can you really make a full-time living as a freelance writer?
You want to see how far writing can take you. Maybe it’s time to get out of the grind of a corporate job or turn hobby income into full-time income. But if you’ve never been a full-time writer before, will people really hire you?
The answer is yes. And the truth is that there’s more opportunity than ever to write for a living, regardless of what industry you’re coming from, if you’re just out of school, or whether you have vocational writing experience. You can even be your own boss.
But it’s worth knowing about the taxes, learning how to get clients, and figuring out how to structure your business before you take the leap. (Or, if you’ve just quit your job to be a writer, this is exactly what you need to get traction!)
The Writing Business Starter Kit will show you how to get started, step by step, so that you can get your writing into gear, set up shop, and build your client base.
