“Oh wow, your self-employed that’s amazing, you must be making loads.”

a2494f63c3981b1e4f1583003d83a4adA sentence I hear all to often. Let’s break it down to my answers to it. Self-employment CAN be amazing. But it can also be the most horrific life choice I have ever made. I certainly do not make loads and previous years seen be go months without a dime. 

However like any job it does have it’s up’s and down’s.  I work in the marketing and PR industry, and trust me it isn’t as glamorous as some may think. I chose to brave it as a freelancer for one main reason – freedom. The freedom to chose my working hours and days, the freedom to express my creativity, the freedom to chose when I spend time with my daughter. Many working places cannot offer that (my previous job was the WORST for it) and I was not okay…

I know where my strengths lie and where I could use a little work.  I’m funny, I’m smart, I can write like a beast, and I’m a veritable cavalcade of useless facts and information. But the more I write and try to let my freelance flag fly, the more I realize that I am terrible at marketing and self-promotion.

Well, I wasn’t planning on talking about this until after the dust settled, but I’ve had a change of heart.

I was laid off from my job last week. I am actively looking for a new position, but in the meantime, I need to keep my options open.

That’s why I’m officially offering freelance services in writing, editing, or online marketing. Here’s a little bit about my background:

  • I reviewed news releases for publication on PRWeb.com, PRNewswire.com, and MarketWired.com for three years. I reviewed approximately 10,000 press releases in that time, and I know what a good press release looks like.
  • I have also written two dozen press releases for various organizations across industries such as tech, fashion, and publishing. And yes, I even wrote my own press releases for my book.
