From Hobby Writer to Freelancer in 223 pages!

I'm finising my reading of Michelle Goodman's Anti 9-to-5 Guide: Practical Career Advice for Women Who Think Outside the Cube. It's an amazing little resource!

It was encouraging to me to see that Goodman recommends the plan I already have in place: start part-time and move into full time. She offers great advice at time management, self-promo/marketing, and at the end of each chapter, she includes an "Action Plan" of three to five items to help you get to the next phase in realizing your dreams.

I've got a to-do list for the next few weeks; hopefully I'll be able to keep myself on track while still getting work done at my "day gig." The year is winding down, and I'll be trying to keep myself from getting burned out before my last day.

One of the next steps in my pursuit of a full time freelance career is to establish a website. As soon as it's up, believe me, it'll be linked here!

So for those of you who just can't get enough of me, take heart! I'll have more soon! In the meantime, feel free to check me out here!

Happy scribbling!

  1. I think I need to buy a copy of that book. Or find myself a rich patron... ;-) Best of luck! Let me know if you need help with the website - my infintesimal bit of knowledge is at your disposal.
