my background and experience
My transition into freelance writing started back when I was working in the fashion industry. I stepped in as a pinch hitter for other small business owners when they needed blog posts, website pages, and promotional materials for industry events. From international supply chains to small artisan cooperatives, from the runway tents to the factory floor, seeing the business process in action connects the dots far beyond pixels on a page.
But my background and experience don't matter half as much as what I can do for you. I've worked for and in different industry types, because people referred me onward to others who thought my work was good. Sometimes they needed an entire website put together for them, sometimes they needed regular newsletters. More recently, people have come to me for assessments of their retirement ideas, which usually include relocation, career transition, and/or a part-time business.
What I find is that clients value a no-BS approach. Most of them have been part of expensive business-building programs that didn't turn out to be all they were cracked up to be. Some of them are tired of hiring five different freelancers for different areas and want more of an all-in-one resource. Many of them need someone who can research and write, but more importantly, think through problems, solutions, and multiple outcomes in a comprehensive way. More than ever, people are needing to be innovative and flexible in their income-generating activities. Problem-solving requires a quality of thought and analysis far more than it requires decades of being or doing the same exact thing. The internet is out there. The people are out there. What are the problems you need to solve?
