My goodness I’m busy. As some of you know, my wife, Bev, was named supervisor for the entire state by her merchandising company, so she’s a busy little beaver, and I’m helping her out on Fridays with deliveries. Although that doesn’t hurt my writing business it does scrunch time a bit and make every minute count for me….so yes, I’m busy.
I recently self-published “The Ultimate Writing Guide” on Amazon in paperback and ebook, so I’m glad that’s out of the way, and my first “Shadows” novel, “Shadows Kill,” should be published in another week. I’m now working on the second draft of the next in that series, “Shadows Over Innocence.”
But that’s not what I wanted to talk to you about today. Let’s get to it!
QUOTE OF THE DAY
“It’s not only moving that creates new starting points. Sometimes all it takes is a subtle shift in perspective, an opening of the mind, an intentional pause and reset, or a new route to start to see new options and new possibilities.”
THOUGHT OF THE DAY
I’m not sure if I mentioned it before…if so, forgive me…but recently I lost a customer I’ve had for three years. It was one of the first freelance writing customers I had, and the loss of that customer cost me about $300 per month. It happened through no fault of my own, so I didn’t beat myself up about it but still, the loss of that income hurt a bit.
But that’s the freelance business. You win some, you lose some, and you keep moving forward. Luckily, I believe in diversification. I like having multiple income sources so that if one fails another can take up the slack. And that’s the whole point of today’s post.
TIP OF THE DAY
I’m going to being making YouTube videos about writing. Why not, right? I monetize them and I make money, and with the following I have, I should be able to make a steady income. I won’t get rich from it but that’s not the point. The point is to have another income source to protect me from the harsh winds of freelance winter. J
HOW ABOUT YOU?
Do you have alternate sources of income? Are you diversified? Have you considered it?
