Freedom Writers Terry Didcott has a nice ring to it and I think I’ll keep this newly adopted moniker as it not only gives me a much more interesting handle, it also gives this site a better chance of appearing somewhere decent in the search engine pages for a keyword that is actually searched for in freedom writers.
So as for this post, which trails on nicely from my last one entitled Freedom Writers Writes, where I posed a nice thought provoking question right at the end. Well, I bet you’re dying to know what my own answer to that would be.
Well, I have to admit I gave it some thought, because you have to remember that I am now doing what I’ve always wanted to do, or more correctly am currently enjoying what I do to make money by freedom writers writing for a living. So by posing the question I was really pushing out my own train of thought in that not only am I doing exactly what I enjoy doing but I’ve been actively working on an offer I recently accepted which is doing more of what I’m already doing.
So as for being a freedom writers, the commission I have taken on does restrict me somewhat in that there is a lot of work to be done in a fairly concentrated timespan, but as it’s merely more of what I already do, then for me it is perfect in that the extra money allows me to continue working at this as a full time occupation instead as only part-time and relying on odd jobs to keep my less than healthy finances afloat!
So my answer to the question is actually “C”. Although being a happy freedom writers I can’t see myself dropping dead any time soon I’m also under no illusions about the fact that any online commission can and will end at some point depending upon the nature of the freedom writers commission.
So the same thought process should be going on inside the heads of anyone who has a mind to attempt to make a full-time career out of the Internet. If someone offers you a fair price for your work even though it means a hefty workload in the short-term with a possibility of future work coming as an off-shoot of it, then you should never reject it (unless they are taking the piss with the money). In fact you should grab it with both hands, because if it doesn’t last too long, then you are at least able to boost your bank account in the short term while you nurture your freedom writers Internet Marketing business. If it does last a while, then you are even better off by being financially secure for the medium term at least – and you can still schedule the extra time to work on your IM business in the meantime.
So this freedom writers should stop this now and get back to working on the stuff that is making money to boost the bank balance!
When things are going well, doesn’t it just put a great big smile on your face?
