    Copywriting/Freelancing to get going

    Hi, I have been on the forum for a couple of months now and tried to take action, but I am sort of paralysed, because I don`t really know, what to do, and I am afraid to lose money. So right now I am thinking of starting in the freelance world as a copywriter. That would have three benefits...

    EXECUTION Being disgusted instigates change.

    Wow. Today I just found a piece of my pursuit of entrepreneurship beginning/infant stages . This quote was put on social media in 2016 EXACTLY 2 years ago from today.

    Hustling to Survive: Freelance Web Design & Copywriting, Book Writing, and Building a Brand

    While its been a while since I've posted here, I have been lurking somewhat regularly. As I sit here in a Starbucks today drinking my $2.41 hot green tea (essentially the price I pay so I can get out of the house and be around people outside of my gym), I came across this thread about the...

    EXECUTION ZF's progress thread

    Alright, just as I said. I would post some results from my Reddit tests. It seems that the folks need to see something tangible. I still will need to develop a cheap prototype and have 50-100 batches. I spotted a competing product being used by someone from today's meeting. I borrowed it for a...

    Can freelancer/Upwork/fiverr be automated?

    So I can’t remember what thread it was posted in but I noticed someone mentioning they were developing a system to automate their jobs on fiverr and freelance sites.

    EXECUTION Copywriting, Failing and Readjusting

    A while back I made a Fiverr gig to start building up my copywriting experience and portfolio. After 2-3 months of having no luck (not a single sale) and rewriting my offer/testing dozens of times, I knew that I needed to try something new. I didn't put much though about how saturated Fiverr...

    Freelancing: I act like an employee, my client acts like an employer

    Recently one of my clients started micromanaging me – he wanted me to track every task in Trello and wanted me to write a detailed daily report about what I’ve done and how I’ve done it. In short: He treated me like an employee. That made me think. Normally I envisioned a client–freelancer...
