Setting Goals

Are You Ready for 2019?

It’s time to kick some freelance writing butt!

Happy New Year!

Whether you’re ready or not, the New Year is upon us! Are you ready to head in with both fists flying? Or, are you taking a milder approach by entering quietly with arms by your side?

There’s no right or wrong answer.

No matter your approach, it should feel comfortable and right for your business. Yes, I’m talking about your freelance writing business. You’re in the driver’s seat, and it’s up to you to figure out the best plan of attack.

Have You Thought About Your Plans?

  • Do you want to write a book? What are your plans for starting and finishing?
  • Are you focusing your sights on pitching articles and blog posts to targets? Have you developed a list of websites that will help you achieve this goal?
  • Will you be launching a blog or website? If so, have you brainstormed or created an editorial calendar and content marketing strategy?
  • What are your plans for obtaining and retaining new clients? Do you have a plan for how you’re going to attract them and prevent them from being “one-off” clients?
  • How are you planning to market your business to continue attracting new clients throughout the year? Are you currently researching methods for how to do this or have you already developed a strategy?

Working Your Business During 2019

Running a freelance writing business is much more than writing. Many believe it’s about writing articles, blog posts, ebooks, whitepapers, and other copy. However, it’s also about working your business. Answering the questions above are part how you’ll be working your business. If you actively work your business, you’ll receive freelance writing work. I’m not going to sugar coat this—it’s work. It’s a lot of work. Initially, you’re going to spend many hours working your business before it pays off. However, you will benefit from these efforts.

You can do this!

We’re going to rock it through 2019!
