Welcome to Year 3!

With all of the obstacles placed in my way during Year 2, I had serious doubts about making it to Year 3. My sister kept putting me in my place when I was feeling really down, and I am grateful for this. I refused to give up, however. I persevered and am now beginning Year 3 of my freelance business career, staying motivated and working to make each day as productive as possible.

The next few posts will give you a better idea of my goals for Year 3, but here is a basic list of what I want to accomplish for my freelance career over the course of the next year:

  • Learn more about marketing.
  • Finish the Travel Writing course that I am taking.
  • Continue writing articles for Revenue Share sites that I am using, to see what happens after a full year of this. At this point, I am using Y! Contributor Network, Experts123, Demand Media Studios, Triond and Suite 101.
  • Continue writing fee-based articles for Demand Media Studios.
  • Propose article/column ideas to print and online publications to begin earning more. These will be my first proposals. Nervous!
  • Work on my fiction writing.

I will, of course, be working on other business tasks as well. Keep reading this week to see the more specific goals that I have.

What are your freelance business goals at this point in your career?
