I had to make a tough decision in 2015 to walk away from my corporate position so I could spend time doing the things that I needed to do, and wanted to do. The timing wasn’t quite as I desired, but the change has opened up my eyes to so many new and exciting things! I’ve had amazing and fulfilling experiences since last summer that I would not have had if I was still working there.
As I was transitioning out, I was editing new authors’ books as a side hustle. I discovered that I enjoyed it immensely! The work can be tedious and time-consuming, but the outcome has placed satisfied smiles on several individuals’ faces, including mine. I have been blessed to meet some very interesting people who decided to write and share their hearts with the world.
As a published author working on my 3rd book, I want to encourage you to write. If you have had unique and interesting experiences, or if you have expertise on a particular topic, please consider sharing it with the world. Yes, a lot of people are writing now, and there’s a good reason for that. Writing gives readers insight into who you are, and what inspires and pushes you. Share that passion with your followers on social media in the form of a book! Many doors have opened for authors: speaking engagements, and interviews before large audiences! Even new positions/employment! If you take the time to write, please take the time (and spend the money!) to edit your writings. Editing refines your work and allows the reader to understand your message easily.
So, write! And when you’re ready to edit, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
