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

The Best Jobs for Introvert Moms

Part time jobs introverts can work from home

If you’re like me, you’re a shy mom. You prefer to be in the company of…well…yourself.

And that’s okay.

There is nothing wrong with you. But it can make finding a job a little more difficult. Even a work at home job. You would think working from home would be easy even if you’re shy. But, if you comb through all the work at home job listings on the web, you’ll find a ton of customer service jobs. What do these jobs require? Speaking to people, day in and day out.

Oh, the horror!

But don’t worry. I know your struggle. I’ve been there. I wanted to work from home, but customer service did not at all appeal to me. I’d rather pluck all of my eyebrow hairs out than speak with people all day long, even if it’s behind a phone or computer screen.

So, I compiled a list of awesome jobs for introverts to do from home. These are even entry level jobs introverts can beginย from the comfort of their own home office. I’m living proof as a freelance writer that you do not have to have people skills or enjoy talking to people to be a successful work from home mom. Read more
