Explain your Freelance Writing Ambitions to Doubters

Starting a freelance writing career can often times be difficult because those around you may not agree with this choice. When it comes down to it, many people do not understand what a freelance writing career entails or how much money you can earn through this type of work. That being said, if you explain your ambitions and how you plan on achieving success you may have an easier time getting those around you to understand what you are doing.

When I first started my career as a freelance writer I heard the same questions time after time: can you really make money as a writer? Aren’t there a lot of creative types who have a hard time making ends meet? After hearing so many people put down my idea of becoming a freelance writer, it would have been easy to agree with them and stay stuck in an office job the rest of my life. You need to realize that there are always going to be people telling you that what you are doing is wrong. If you listen, it is safe to say that you may miss out on your dreams.

Instead of simply cutting the doubters out of your life, you would be better suited to explain what a career in freelance writing is all about. Not only do you want to tell them what you would be doing on a daily basis, but you should also let them know that this is a legitimate career that offers many opportunities. You will be surprised at how many of these doubters change their outlook on the freelance writing industry after you show them the details.

Remember, a career in freelance writing is not exactly common. For this reason, there are always going to be a lot of people who are not sure of this path; including your friends and family. If you want to move on with them on your side, take the time to explain your freelance writing ambitions as well as the basics of the industry.
