5. Be sensible about your knowledge of the freelance industry. Join my newsletter or book to understand what you need to do.
6. Learn how to write a great query letter.
7. Be persistent about pursuing assignments.
8. Determine what you want to write about. Would you specialize or are you currently a generalist.
9. Seek information on your subject to be sure it is factual.
10. Promote your work on your Website.

Some promised me I’d make $5,000 a month basically bought it and followed the advice on how to be considered a successful freelance writer.
