Freelance writing – to me – is one of the best jobs out there. Many of my friends are making six figures a year as freelance writers. They’ve quit their full-time jobs, their husbands have possibly quit their full-time jobs, and they’re able to work on their own terms and set their own schedule. Need to take kids to the doctor? Have a sick baby? Need to help with homework and cook dinner? Done, done and done; all without having to ask your boss for PTO.
I have been freelance writing for over four years, though I’ll admit I don’t do a ton of it anymore. In fact, the only jobs I take on now are ones that pay $300+ per article. While I do get a few that come my way, the income isn’t consistent. Reason being is I do have a full-time job that I enjoy and I just had my third little baby girl 🙂 I’m also focusing more on increasing my blogging income for the time being.

However, that doesn’t mean I don’t know how to get freelance jobs 🙂 Back in the day, I was making a consistent $2,000-$3,000/month with two little toddlers at home. I would estimate I worked about 15 hours per week to make that. Here, I’m sharing the fastest and easiest way to break into freelance writing.
