Making six figures as a freelance writer can happen. In fact, it does happen quite often to those who make a strategic plan and diligently stay on track for the long haul. But can you get rich quick as a writer?
Many people dream of a day when they can quit their day job and work from home. Probably one of the quickest ways to start making at least a little bit of money online is through writing. Every website needs content, and many webmasters pay people to provide that content.
It’s no secret that I’m on a journey to become a six-figure writer. I have spent a good amount of time mingling with other writers and gradually learning from those who are making it. What types of writing can lead to a six-figure or better income?
I have heard a lot of people lately ask how to become a writer. Interesting question.
I guess the answer to that depends on what you think a writer actually is.
The obvious answer is that a writer is someone who writes. So if you think of yourself as an “aspiring” writer, a “wannabe” writer or a “future” writer, chances are you’re creating your own roadblocks.
You can’t help but be a bit skeptical when you hear that people make six figures as copywriters, especially if you are bidding on job boards or working for content mills where people expect you to take $5 or $10 for an article – sometimes even less than that.
