How I Learned to Be a Better Mom From My Dad

How I learned to be a better mom from my dad

Dads get a lot of flack. In America alone, 24 million children grow up without their dads. It’s not only sad, it’s horrific.

But, not all dads fit the statistics. Some dads are single parents, too, through no choice of their own. Others are amazing daddies who act like adults and co-parent their babies. Some dads are not only amazing husbands, but are also incredible, involved role models for their kids.

My dad is one of the top-notch ones. In fact, when I think of what a “dad” should be, I think of him.

Not only has he proven that good menย do exist, he’s proven thatย great dads exist, too.

And, he’s helped make me the mother I am today.ย  Read more

Freelancer Profile: 5 Steps To Making A Killer Impact

Create A Killer Freelancer Profile

Ah, the dreaded freelancer profile. The profile freelancer nation cringes at the mention of. The one that makes even skilled freelance writers want to run and hide.

Why? Because the freelancer profile is supposed to get you more clients. It should showcase all your talents, even the ones you don’t think you’re so great at. Your profile opens you up, makes you vulnerable. It basically says, “Here I am. Here’s what I can do. Now hire me!”.

And it can be quite intimidating, honestly.

So, here you are. Stuck with needing a freelancer profile, but not knowing how to make a good one that will attract potential clients. Lucky for you, I’m going to teach you how to create a magnetizing profile that will make clients want to work with you.

These tips are based on my own successful experiences with Upwork and Guru, two places that helped get me my quick start as a freelance writer. Literally, within 2 months of signing up for these freelance marketplaces, I quit my regular, 9-5 job and started my own writing and digital media business.

You can do that, too. But it all starts with the profile freelancersย need to have to get moving. Read and utilize these steps, and you’ll have an irresistible freelance profile that will get you noticed. Read more
