It’s so important to take time away from work

Keywords: Empowerment , Healthy Lifestyle , artist life , empowerment , encouragement , hustle , lifestyle , self care

Not only to vegetate or rest, but to actively do something that you know always lifts your spirits. Whether it’s hiking (can’t relate, but do you), reading guilty-pleasure romance novels or painting, give yourself a day with as little obligations as possible so you can do those things.

While ghostwriters are oftentimes allowed to take creative liberties, it’s important for them to stick as close to the original storyline as possible

Keywords: ghostwriter , ghostwriter for hire , Ghostwriting , ghostwriting info , ghostwriting process , what do ghostwriters do

While this varies between projects and clients, I like to break up a ghostwriting gig into increments. This is always something that I determine with my client upfront. For example, we might agree that I will submit each milestone of 10,000 words to them separately for their review before moving on, and it’s during each of these stages that I’ll get a portion of my pay. This allows for a broken up payment schedule (beneficial to both myself and the client), and also means that they can review the writing on a regular basis to be sure that they’re happy with it.

There has been a cut-throat competition between individuals seeking jobs on freelancer websites

Everyone gets into the bidding fight and tries to win it by lowering their work price below what they deserve. Established platforms mostly have these kinds of scenarios. You should give due importance to which kind of platform you are heading into. You should probably go for new websites with less competition. It will increase your selection possibilities at a higher rate.

Balance… And Flex

Those of you who follow my blog will know I tend
to write about copywriting or about freelancing, and that my posts are often on
the short-and-sweet side, rather than the long and wordy. Today’s offering is a
bit different. Today, I have my soapbox out. Prepare yourselves.

The thing is, this is an issue close to my heart,
and close to the hearts of a lot of people I know, respect and value. And the
post has been fermenting for a while, slowly taking shape as I weave together
issues like flexible working, gender equality, balance in the workplace and
diversity in general.

Not much then.

Now’s your chance to step away. You have been
warned. If you’re still with us, fasten your seatbelt and come along for the
ride.

But with such a lot to cover, where do I start?
Well, gender equality is as…

What it’s like to be young and unemployed.

ATP Kieran- A Life Story

Spoiler alert: it’s shit.

So I haven’t written a personal blog in something like 4 and a half years, so this could get messy. To sum up the last 4 years of my life, went to uni, became management of a student radio station, presented a radio show on BBC Radio 1 to 8 million+ listeners, started volunteering doing media for a women’s football team, got nominated for a national student radio award, graduated uni with a decent degree, got a decent job, got engaged to a wonderful girl, planned to do a PGCE so I could go into teaching… And then it all went to shit.

So after graduating I was fortunate enough to get an internship working in the marketing department of my university on an 8 month contract. I loved my time there, but ultimately, it was a fixed term contract so I had to have an…

Blog #38 – Postgraduate Study Fair!

Jessica Harnell Photography

05/03/2019

The Post-Graduate Fair! This was a big opportunity for me to attend to potentially discover a future pathway after graduation and carry on further and higher study! I booked my place in and checked in at 3pm. I was informed about what was going on throughout the event. Luckily I am already an undergrad at the University already, therefore, I am aware of the facilities, staff and also the expectations of higher education study due to currently almost completing my undergraduate course.

This is a potential consideration post-grad, and expanding on my study, apart of the Digital Media MA. I enquired about the student finance required which was incredibly clear and extremely helpful. All the staff were very considerate and able to direct/advised me to certain tables at the event. The whole event was a drop in from 3pm till 6pm, with various talks about taught and research post-grad…

Simply how much Will a Website Cost?

honeyplay3

You want a website for your business. Simply how much can it cost? That’s usually the first question which comes up. It should be easy to answer, right?

Sorry but No!

The very best analogy, and quite often cited, is building a house. You would like to develop a new home, how much can it cost? Needless to say, you do not know. It depends about the size of your house, the quality of the materials, where the home is plus a host of other factors. Some of these are influenced by your financial allowance (mortgage!)

I will offer an estimate according to similar website projects but for an accurate website quotation, I’ll have to know more.

Let’s create a plan
An internet site is not as complex being a house (phew!) but there must be a web site plan. It would add a set of requirements, the website content…

So, here we go…

Three years later and we are having to revisit, not just for the fact that I really should do this more often, but also because my world is about to get turned upside down. I work for a big box retailer that has filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy and has decided that the store I work at is not to be part of the restructuring. No, they aren’t going to help me find a new job, nor did I expect them to. I feel sad for my co-workers, but to me, this is a blessing in disguise, the kick I needed to get out.

Okay, you may be asking, “Lhyz, why did you go to college for 6 years if you were just going to end up back in a box store?” It was to pay the bills. It was to keep my head above water…

How to find clients that fit

finding the right clients , finding the right fit , how to find clients

My Freelance Adventure

When you interview with a client, understand that you are interviewing them just as much as they are interviewing you. And it’s OK to decide that they are not a good fit.

Finding clients when you’re new to freelancing is challenging — finding the right clients is even more so. It’s so tempting to just cast your net wide and accept the first thing that comes your way, but that’s just not going to get you where you want to be.

You’re a professional and you have goals. You’ve defined your skill set and you know the type of work you want to be doing, now you need to understand the type of client you want to be doing it for. Here are a few ways to refine your search and weed out the clients who aren’t going to be your best fit.
