People wonder if freelancing is a lucrative career or if they can make money from writing.
I know many freelancers who support themselves simply by writing, so the answer is YES!
YOU CAN EARN A LIVING FROM WRITING!
There are the tons of people who contributed to my “Freelancer in the Spotlight” series. They ALL make a living from freelance writing!
And I’m sure you’ve heard the stories about all the bloggers who make a million dollars a minute or the copywriters who are able to write from their second home in Mexico? You see their friendly faces in advertisements that pop up in your Facebook feed, promising to give you instant riches if you just sign up to a program for a gazillion dollars a month.
But you don’t need to take their programs. You can take ones that have been PROVEN to work.
Take Elna Cain, for example. She teaches others how to make a living from freelance writing. (Look at her course, How to Write Your Way to Your First 1K.)
Then there’s Gina Horkey. She teaches people how to achieve freelancing success in 30 DAYS OR LESS! She also teaches people how to make a living from being a virtual assistant… also in 30 days or less!
Can you do both? Sure, you can!
There are many opportunities to make money as a writer in 2018. You just need to know where to look!
Opportunities for Writers in 2018 and Beyond
From blogging and copywriting to editing and freelancing, there are jobs to suit all different types of writing skill and interest.

You will notice that blogging is mentioned too. That’s because blogging is a means to an end (the end being MAKING MONEY, of course)!
