In my experience they do if you use them! If you download the PDFs and let them sit on your desktop, they won't work. If you read the blog posts and don't take action, my tips won't help. They're not alive. You are! I've followed my own advice and that of coaches and strategists and I've grown my business a lot, but I'm not a magician, and I can't guarantee any sort of results for you.
I sure do! I love to help new freelancers get started! I offer a variety of packages on my mothership site/business, TheGardenOfWords.com. If you're just getting up and running, you'll want my "Project Audit" package number 1. We'll talk through what you want to do and I'll send you a wrap email with concrete next steps you can take to get started.
If you've been at it for a while but want to jump to the next level, we can talk about that, too.
I've been freelancing for 10 years, full time for 8, and I make a six figure income from doing it. The first year I surpassed my husband's full time income was a good one. Cha-ching! However, I repeat, I am making no guarantees that your income will double if you do this or you'll never be out of work if you do that.
I do hire subcontractors, but I have many with whom I've been working for years. Right now I'm not looking for more, but thanks for asking!
Show up! You gotta show up and do the work to get paid. Period. The end.
