I got an e-mail from a…not a client. Somebody who had been working with a client. He wanted to know if I want more work, that he sometimes has people in need of copy editing. How much do I charge?
- Yes, always.
- I upped my rate just a smidge. Because, I mean, if I’m adding work to the pile, might as well make it more advantageous, right?
For so many years I was plugging along, making connections, doing little things here and there. I had no idea that this could actually work out! Thank the good lord in heaven for side hustles.
