This episode is for those of you who have ever wondered:” is it possible to make a living as a writer?” The summarized version is basically this…well it really depends.
Are you willing to channel your inner Mad Men, and be the creative department, and the client accounts department all rolled into one? And if you’ve never watched Mad Men, I’ll put it into terms you can understand.
Are you willing to be your own marketing department, and do the work, while keeping track of your expenses, and handling duties typically reserved for HR professionals in “regular” workplaces?
Not sure if that’s something you can handle? I dedicated an entire episode to talking to a fellow writer, I met in a Facebook group for independent freelancers, Leesa Klich, about how she made the switch from professional nutritionist to professional writer. Listen in to get a better sense of what being a professional writer is “really” like. Since that’s what I do as well, the episode is a compilation of both our opinions.
An important hint: it’s not all pyjamas, and glorious muses. But in some cases, that’s an occasional, additional benefit.
What this episode covers:
Leesa Klich is a Health writer, blogging expert, research nerd. She helps health & wellness professionals attract more email subscribers & clients using their blogs. She moves them from feeling stumped & overwhelmed to confidently & consistently showing off their expertise. And she makes credible research-based blogging both strategic & easy, which saves them a ton of time, so they can focus on what lights them up in their business & life.

What is People Behind The Business?
People Behind the Business is a "show for small businesses with small teams and huge ambitions". The point is to bring together small business owners worldwide to tell their stories about how/why they started their business, along with personal issues that impact how they do business. E.G: living with a mental or physical illness, hearing the word "no" a lot, and finding practical solutions to the challenges of establishing a loyal community of colleagues, customers + friends. My goal is to provide a forum where small business owners can learn from each other's mistakes & accomplishments.
