The freelance writing profession is alive and well. With nearly every business of every trade relying heavily on online traffic, there’s a need for quality content creators to fill the void and help businesses rank.

Janine mentions on our call that she started freelancing as a way to take control of her schedule and create a healthier work-life balance–something you can easily do as a freelance content creator!
