I've been freelancing full-time for about two years and it.is.tough. I spend way more time marking my services than actually writing. (That's why I started writing on Medium this month.)
It's not easy being your own boss. I've thought about going back to a 9-to-5 job. I've learned so much about online marketing in the past few years, I'm tempted to look at marketing positions I would've overlooked before.
Best of luck to you, Tiffiny!
