I love to write, well heck that is why I blog, and I have a book in the works. The book has a long way to go, and is not a for sure thing for cash. So, I started searching for some freelancing jobs. There alot of sites for freelancers, but some do not offer alot of jobs, require you to pay, or make you jump through hoops. Elance is not like that, though you do have to bid on jobs, and are only allowed to bid on so many unless you pay.
It amazed me to find out that there are people who pay others to blog for them, not me. Post on Facebook, solicit on blogs, comment on their blog, I was like what? Oh and love the posts $1.00 for 500 words, really? If you think writing unique, quality pieces is worth only a dollar for 500 words write it your self! Oh and love those who want you to write an e-book for them. Soooo let me see I write an e-book for you for a flat rate and you sell it making all the profit. Forget that I'll write the book, get credit, and make money off of it. Than you have the students who want you to write their paper for them. Believe or not there are freelancers who bid on these types of jobs, personally I think they are selling themselves short.
Bidding is tricky because you have to submit the time it will take to do the job. Jobs are not always as easy as I thought they would be, and what they are looking for is not always clear. Take for instance the job I worked on for four days that was suppose to take three hours. It sounded easy enough, but the information left out for the meal planning was that it had to be for three weeks of meals and snacks for 1200-1499 calories.
It was for a Beach Body coach, and a new challenge they have called the 21 day fix. I loved the idea so much I am going to become a coach, don't run off and buy, wait until I become a coach, so I can coach you. I have some great ideas for this challenge that I will share once I become a coach.
|Items to be sold at the farmer's market.|
Last, but certainly not least, for the first time I will be selling some homemade products at the farmer's market tomorrow with a great friend. I hope to make enough to become a beach body coach. We also want to start a small business/hobby out of our homes making organic lunches which we will deliver to businesses.
So if you could have an organic lunch delivered to you what would you want?
