This time last year, I was broke.
Today, I still am. Hehe!
Ok, on a serious note, when I kinda pulled my finger outta my ass in Jan 2008 and started making some money online, I didn’t really know what was possible. I just knew I had to do something to change what was becoming the norm.
I made $325.32 last month taking the year’s final total to $4058.53. Breakdown was as follows:
Freelance writing – $3,568.70
Proofreading – $330.49
Other – $159.34 (amazon/ eBay sales, taking surveys, etc)
Has it been worth it? Sometimes, I’ve felt it’s all been one huge distraction from what I really should be doing with my life. Other times, I’ve felt it’s been SO worth not working a 9-5.
In terms of freedom, freelance (web) writing is a step towards it, but it’s not what I want to be doing a lot of a year from now. I’d rather be writing and creating for myself. That, for me, is freedom.
I really wish all of y’all a hugely successful 2009. Dream wide. Then dive in.
I’m gonna try and do that too.
