Freelance Writing Startup Costs
Although I have talked about freelance writing startup costs in the past, many questions have come my way about this topic over the past few days. Why this is happening I have not a clue. That being said, it is an important topic to revisit from time to time. If you are interested in starting a freelance writing career you need to know which expenses you will run into, as well as what you should and should not be doing with your money.
Here are three freelance writing startup costs to consider:
1. Computer and printer. It goes without saying that every freelance writer needs a quality computer and printer. Do you already have both of these? If so, you can forget about this expense and move on. Those who donâ€™t have to purchase a computer and printer can really save a lot of money during the startup phase of their career.
2. Internet connection. This is something that many people forget about for whatever reason. For the most part, a computer does not do you any good unless you have an internet connection as well. Once again, you may already be paying for this for your own personal use. In this case, you are off the hook and are still doing well from a budgeting perspective.
3. Office supplies. What do you need in your office and on your desk to succeed? There are many office supplies you can purchase â€“ some of them are more important than others. They include printer paper, staples, paper clips, notebooks, pens, and other items of the like. Fortunately, office supplies do not cost that much money. Believe it or not, I still have some of the same items I purchased during my first year as a freelancer.
Are there other freelance writing startup costs? There sure are. But these three are very important and cannot be overlooked. If you have any specific questions regarding startup costs and what you should be doing, feel free to shoot me an email or leave a comment for all of us to read.
