For the past couple of years, I’ve learned the ups and downs of working as a freelance writer. The Internet is an enormous source of opportunity: to make hard-earned cash and for scammers to steal your creative labor. It was certainly painful when I ran into my first scammer, but I learned a lot from this experience.
Since I often receive questions about the work I do, I decided a Periscope session is a great place to begin. Periscope is a live video streaming app that allows you to “Explore the world through the eyes of somebody else.” On Tuesday, September 26th I’m going to go LIVE on Periscope to discuss:
- The benefits of freelancing
- Freelancer vs Upwork
- How to avoid scams
- Where to find work
Feel free to tune in live and ask me questions. I’ll post the feed on my Twitter and Facebook so you’ll be able to watch later. You may view Periscope videos on the iPhone and Android as well as your web browser. All of this is happening at 6pm EST.
I’m really excited and hope that you’ll share this post with friends who are interested in freelancing. If you have any questions or topics you’d like me to cover, comment below or send me a message. And don’t forget to set an alarm on your phone for Sept. 26th at 6pm EST!
