Break Away!

Photograph by Shannon L. Buck copyright 2015.Do your own thing. What others do works for them, not necessarily for you. You are your own person, learning and living and working in your own way. And this is a good thing! No one really wants to be a carbon copy of someone else.

Your next course of action? Sit down with pen and paper and decide exactly what it is you want for your freelance career.

  • What things do you aspire to?
  • What do you want to do for your business?
  • What projects can you work on that would add an element of fun to your business, at least for yourself but maybe also for your clients?
  • How can you help your clients along with their own businesses?
  • What wonderful products can you create to sell on your site?
  • How can you creatively help yourself and your clients get over hurdles?
  • What sets you apart from others in your field?

Ask yourself questions that make you think. Set yourself challenges, because they keep things interesting. Be true to yourself and your vision. Click To Tweet And Keep moving forward.

About Shannon L. Buck

Hello. My name is Shannon, and I'm a single mother of two young adult daughters, and Memay to one precious Little Man. I work as a writer from my home in Orono, Maine, and as a Front Desk Agent at an inn. Writing is my life, second only to my daughters. I enjoy writing nonfiction, as well as fiction in a number of genres. At some point, I would like to travel. It would be a true writing adventure.
