Sometimes Change is a Good Thing
As a freelance writer it is often times entirely too easy to settle into a groove. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but it can be if you begin to avoid change at all costs. There are sure to be times when a change here and there is a good thing. It is your job as a freelance writer to decide when these times are, and then deal with them accordingly.
If you need a little push, consider these changes that I and many others have made over the years:
1. Change your hours. Have you been sleeping in too late? Working into the evening when you shouldnâ€™t be? If you want to change your career this is one of the easiest ways of doing so. I have found that a change to my working schedule is a great way to increase energy and productivity.
2. Change your rates. Obviously, this is something you have to be very careful about. Changing your rates is not something that you do on a whim; this needs to be a calculated decision. Although this type of change can be difficult to make, it is one that can greatly increase your freelance writing income and in some cases help you attract more clients.
3. Change your marketing approach. I strongly suggest that you consider this point if you are not finding enough work or have hit a rut. Sometimes adding a new component to your marketing strategy can give your career a huge boost.Â
Are you the type of freelance writer who thinks that all change is bad? If so, consider the above information. Hopefully you will begin to see that some changes can work in your favor.
