One of the many glamorous things about being a business writer is that you can work from just about everywhere and anywhere.
All you need is a laptop under your arm and a stable internet connection, and you’re free to run your writing business from any location in the world, as you please.
It all sounds great in theory, and a lot of the time, it is.
Gone are the days we sat down with our biro pens, finely sharpened pencils, and blank sheets of paper to jot down our ideas and drafts for that next big novel.
Technology has long since replaced longhand writing, with typewriters, iPads, iMacs, laptop computers, and desktops being the things for writers to “tappity tap” on.
Sure, computerized devices are much quicker—and, of course, you don’t have to worry about the dreaded hand cramp after writing for only a short duration of time … plus you can partially rely on spellcheck to alert you to those silly little grammar mistakes.
With the click of a button, your work is saved and stored in a folder of your choice; all you have to do is open up the file again and voila, you’re ready to pick up from where you left off.
I decided to take my writing to the next level a few years back and put my creativity to the test by starting my own freelance writing service.
It sounded easy back then; it wasn’t, and to this day … it still isn’t.
But it can be a little less daunting with the correct guidance and mentorship along the way.
How do we achieve our goals and reach the pinnacle of success as an entrepreneur who writes?
Through hard work? Natural raw talent? Of course, you need both of these attributes in your locker.
But first (and most importantly), you need the desire and hunger to succeed before you set out on becoming an entrepreneurial writer. This stems back from your mindset.
