Learn Freelancing from the Bottom Up

Learn Freelancing from the Bottom Up

Many bloggers make the promise of educating you on the best practices of freelancing.

A quick google search will reveal plenty of “*insert name here* made 8k this month. Here’s how!” results. But have you noticed they all come with some form of leg up?

Either they worked with content in some capacity. Or they had professional experiences that prepared them for self-employment.

“Skip your errors. Use mine” – Marginalized Millennimom

It’s true, I’ve made a lot of errors in the last six months. But I’m giving you the REAL freelance start-up picture.

Truthfully, if I had someone to reassure me of my value, I would have done better. But more importantly, I would have saved time.

With my advice, you can skip the “internships” expecting you to work for free. With my experience, you can bypass past writing 3 articles a week for $1 per 1k ad clicks. And with my foresight, you can reject the high expectations and low pay of 800 words for $15.

Learn Freelancing with me and we can grow together. No, you won’t learn everything from me cause I’m still learning. But you will gain a lot of helpful information on goal setting and developing important areas so you can make money while freelancing,

It cost nothing to try. Together, we can take a small step on a long journey.

Why Marginalized Millenimom?

I know what you’re thinking, “Why Marginalized Millenimom?

Well, let me tell you!

I saw plenty of places for moms who write, few places for millennials who write, and a handful of places that focused on social justice lovers who write when I first started writing.

But I didn’t see a place for a millennial mother with a passion for writing about social justice.

The result was feeling marginalized, once again.

There are certain aspects of culture that only moms born late enough to speak tech as a first language but early enough to still be in awe of hoverboards, understand.

Our relationships with our children are different than the generations before us. Our children often feel like some weird younger sibling/creature I gave birth to combo.

There are certain aspects of culture that only marginalized groups understand. The type of marginalization may be different for each person but mothers of color attempting to make it in this “post-racial society” face a unique set of circumstances.

Mix all of that together, and you’re in for an interesting life.

You don’t have to fit into all my identities to find this information useful, all that being said. My name simply means I refuse to choose one identity when all of them affect my life experiences.

If you’re a non-female millennial, this space can still be useful to you.

If you’re a not marginalized, this space can still be useful to you.

If you’re a not a mother, this space can still be useful to you.

All is required is a passion for growth.  (It helps if you want to write too ;))
