Thirty-two years ago this month, I was immersed in working on this n20th anniversary newsletter for a Milwaukee nonprofit organization that provided various services to central city toddler-age children with various developmental physical disabilities.
.
It was the first assignment that came my way after I had made the decision to quit looking for a full-time entry level position and become a full-time freelance writer/consultant. It a was a rewarding start for numerous reasons:
.
I have a special needs sister, so I immediately grasped the need and importance of such services.
.
The center’s leadership and staff were remarkably cooperative, which enabled us to from initial meeting to mailing in less than a month at a time when conventional typesetting and other “old school” print production processes were still the norm.
.
I was expected to not lonely write the content, but to select photos, develop the overall layout and design and to whatever I could to reduce costs while also producing an attractive piece. Thanks to various ancillary skills I had acquired through an internship and various volunteer experiences, I was able to do that.
.
Several months later, the center’s director of development remarked that with the funding and volunteer support increases that followed, the newsletter’s cost was a bargain.
.
Not all of the subsequent assignments I got from clients would feel so rewarding, and there were many hard lessons that awaited me. The further I got along, though, the more I realized how much that initial assignment inspired me to keep going.

Book 28 ✅
‘Queens of the Kingdom’ by Nicola Sutcliff
.
This is a wonderfully thought-provoking glimpse into the lives, the minds and the realities of women living in Saudi Arabia.
.
Sutcliff interviews a hugely diverse array of women - from princesses to cleaners; from 15 year olds to 80 year olds; from housewives to engineers; from students to prisoners...each ‘chapter’ consisting of their accounts in their own (translated) words. Between each section, there’s an essay of sorts about the history, the politics and the culture of the country.
.
It’s obvious, but what struck me was the sheer diversity of thought - focused specifically on the abaya, the niqab, and the whole experience of guardianship. I think the narratives we tend to stumble upon in the West can be so absolutist and without nuance, so it was refreshing to read the spectrum of opinion all in one sitting.
.
Highly recommend.

It’s a work from home day today, which means I’m already on to my second laundry load, I have a pot of coffee on the go, I’ve finished off a load of admin and accounts, and I’m now on to working towards two impending deadlines, and preparing for a conference call. All before 10am. #freelancelife #freelance #freelancing #freelancer #freelancecopywriter #freelancewriter #copywriter #writer #workfromhome #workingfromhome #selfemployed #soletrader #womeninbusiness #womenwholead #girlboss #freelancemum #marketing #digitalmarketing #creative #creativewriting

How familiar are you with your own process of writing? Do you see writing as a means to an end, or an activity that’s fascinating in and of itself? Do you use it as a time to explore and investigate?
✏✏✏
With a product mentality, you’re in an almost constant state of not-there-ness. With a process mentality, you can be fully engaged and learning throughout.
✏✏✏
And yes, you can pitch for process too. ☄☄☄

If Cats Disappeared From The World, is as interesting as the quirky title sounds. .
.
When the young postman discovers he has an inoperable brain tumour, he begins wondering about the lack of substance and impact of his short 30 year old time.
Just then the devil appears, with an interesting twist in the plot: He grants one day of life in exchange for permission to make one thing disappear from the world. First goes chocolate, then phones, followed by clocks, and lastly cats. .
.
It is so interesting to consider questions like the impact absence of an object can have in our lives, and this is beautifully portrayed in this thoughtful book.
Japanes literature is rife with deep meanings, something of importance lurking just under the surface and that is what this book will do, make you dive under that surface, laugh, and lament. .
.
It is a story of loss and reconciliation with the question of ifs and regrets, and yet the sentiment never gets heavy, thanks to the cheerful presence of the devil doppelganger.
.
.
A short read, highly recommended(⭐⭐⭐⭐/5)

💻This mornings #office set-up. Definitely one of the perks of being a #freelancer. ⁣

I have now been writing freelance for over 4 years and I’ve learnt some huge lessons. For anyone who is at the beginning of their journey, let me save you some time by sharing some of these with you.⁣

🖤Don’t miss deadlines. I know pretty basic but it is so easy to miss one deadline, thinking that you’ll catch up, only to then spend the rest of the day trying to play catch up. Find an organisation system and stick to it.⁣

🖤Set your own prices and don’t dip below them unless it is absolutely necessary. Whether you are just starting our or an experienced pro, your work has value and it’s probably worth a lot more than you think. I have a blog post going up on Friday where I am going to be super open about the money I’ve made online and how I’ve done it.⁣

🖤Create your own website and use this as a portfolio and sales portal.⁣

🖤 Get dressed. It is so easy to stay in your pyjamas all day but I am so much more productive when I’m dressed. I treat my freelance work as a career, so I show up and always as my best possible self.

From the North Queensland Sports Star Awards in Ingham. I represented the Mackay Regional Council in the masters category which was an amazing honour. An incredible evening, the highlight meeting three Olympic gold medalists!

Wanting to do something and motivating yourself to actually do it are two different things.

Self-motivation is the force that keeps pushing us to go on – it's our internal drive to your dreams, and succeeding, in this journey we call life.

With self-motivation, you'll learn and grow – regardless of the specific situation. That's why it's such a fundamental tool for reaching your goals, achieving your dreams, and succeeding, in this journey we call life

Nothing Compares 2 U menjadi salah satu lagu yang ngehit di tahun 90 awal. Sosok plontos Sinead O'Connor pun ikut berjaya. Padahal ini lagu sudah pernah dirilis The Family. Sang pencipta, Prince, juga pernah membawakannya di panggung.

“İlk evine, ana rahmine düştükten kaç zaman sonra attı kalbin ilk kez biliyor muydun? Tıp sana ‘bebek’ demiyordu o zaman. ‘Cenin’ bile demiyordu. Eline bir cetvel alıp bak n’olursun. 3 milimetrelik bir kan pıhtısıydın sadece. Minicik bir tohumda saklanmıştın. Sonra doğdun, sonra seni hayata bıraktım.
.
Kalbin ilk sesine bir ad yakışırdı aslında. O mucizeye bir isim vermiş olsaydık keşke”.

In my local photography group, we have a saying when talking about clients who want a discount for their wedding photography; “They want a Gelato Bar.” Some years ago, I achieved notoriety in that group when I responded to a client’s request to lower my fee by $250 so they could afford a Gelato Bar with the words; “I’m sorry. Are you asking me to pay for your Gelato Bar?” It was not professional. (But damn, it felt good)

As you may have guessed, she didn’t hire me.
Looking back, I might have salvaged that conversation by adding value. I could have said, “I can’t discount for my services, but you’ve mentioned that you really liked that engagement sign-in book, which is $250. I’m happy to include that in your package at no additional charge”. That sign-in book would have cost me $25, and I might have had a happy client on my hands who felt like she got a deal. (And had gelato for dessert at her wedding)

The next time a client asks you for a discount, go ahead and serve them up a big old scoop of value. It may be just the sweet treat they need, and it won’t take money off your bottom line.
