Great article, thank you!

I am also a full-time freelance writer and editor and became an LLC immediately — for my protection. I didn’t want my or my husband’s personal assets to be part of it. All business right from the beginning!

I think this is amazing and congrats on your success. I make around $5–6k per month and thought I was doing well! I hope to get to your level in the next year. It’s so important to work with clients who see your value and are willing and happy to pay for it.

Question — you mention becoming a regular writer at places like mindbodygreen and a column on Medium. Are these paid opportunities? I thought mindbodygreen was unpaid contributors. And for the Medium column, if it’s paid, is it through the Medium Partner Program or through the Elemental?

Thank you!
