Interested in learning how to start a business?
Did you know you can start a blog and turn that into a business?
I’ve been blogging since 2014. I have two blogs – Elna Cain to help with freelance writers and Twins Mommy to help moms make money blogging. I get emails all the time asking for help on starting a blog for their freelance business or as a way to earn an income and grow their brand.
Are you planning on starting a freelance writing career? Or are you hoping to transition your side-hustle into a full-time gig?
Before you jump into the world of freelancing and self-employment, it’s important to be prepared.
Doing so involves more than creating a blog and responding to job postings.
When I first started as a freelance writer, I definitely had imposter syndrome.
When a certain freelance writing client hired me to write blog content, I noticed other writers (the ones I looked up to) also writing for this client and I immediately felt like a huge fraud.
Imposter syndrome would settle in and I had a very hard time writing for this client.
It’s no lie –
I’ve been freelance writing since 2014 and have worked with amazing small businesses, influencers and big brands.
During this time, I learned I didn’t have to hustle as hard or write as much, or be fully booked to make a living as a writer.

Got a knack for neutrons?
A penchant for paleontology?
Then it’s time to take a look at science writing jobs.
