Imagine the following scenario…
You live the glamorous life of a work from home copywriter. Of course, the reality of that is if you’re sick, you work. There’s no paid time off. You’re doing your best to stay on top of your workload.

So, here’s something most people won’t tell you about working from home. Shit that should be (and has in the past amounted to) a two hour project may very well take you at least DOUBLE that amount of time. And it’s not always because of something the client did or didn’t do / provide. It’s just part of working from home and having a family, … Continue reading Confession #626
Today I’m answering one of the most common questions I’m asked: what is the best way to start freelancing?

I have the strangest encounters with people…people that think that various forms of content (social media content, articles, web page content, video scripts, books, whatever) are left on the doorstep of a business by the word fairy. Today, I went to pay the Internet bill in person. I usually pay online. While paying, I asked a question about how I would process a name change … Continue reading Confession #47
Sent to me by an attorney. Remember, if you send over your confession, you will remain anonymous. This lawyer worked from home (or as the cool kids called it, “virtual office” for quite some time).

Right before we walk out the door, I could hear water running. I walk into the main bathroom, and it’s flooded. Don’t worry – we have tile floors. Water … Continue reading A Shitty Confession
Sent through the Confessional form. I swear I log in at least 100 times a day just from getting distracted. Maybe actually only sitting down and proceeding 5 -8 of those times…lol. Continue reading Confession #1220
Anonymous confession sent in through the form above. I understand why some animals eat their young… Continue reading Confession #1130
Anonymous submission via form (and it is apparently in the air today with clients). Nothing pisses me off more than, “I need you to do this (insert vague project description here). I’ll show you how.” Later… “I don’t have the time to show you how I want or need it done, so I just need you to do it.” -completes project and sends it- Client … Continue reading Confession #101
Anonymously submitted through the official fan page. “If there’s one thing I absolutely cannot stand it is when people wanna work with me and schedule a time to chat about something specific…so I take time out of my day to call and the person isn’t prepared at all – and they didn’t even bother to just send an email asking to reschedule.” Submit your anonymous … Continue reading Confession #820
