So you want to be a freelance writer…

Last July, one of our writers was featured on PT Money Blog.  Philip interviewed Miranda Marquit, who happens to be one of our freelance writers.  Miranda writes mostly on financial matters, helping our clients with online content and also having written a number of finance-related books for business clients.

The podcast, which I am running below with permission, asks Miranda about the business of freelance writing and what it takes to become a freelance writer. As an aside, when you work from home, you are not working in some antiseptic office environment, where almost everything is artificially controlled. At home, office life and real life collide ion the most unpredictable of ways, especially when there are children running around. In the case of this podcast, you hear the doorbell ring at one point. My comment to Miranda after I had listened to the interview was, “Next time instead of a doorbell, maybe you could have a motorcycle followed by a scream and a crash.” That would be much more entertaining.

Here is the podcast, as it was first published.

Miranda offers much more incredible advice for budding freelance writers, so take a few minutes to listen to the full podcast.

  1. Thanks for republishing this, David! I’ll work on the sounds of crashes and screams for my next interview!

  2. Here’s another interesting line, for anyone wondering how long http://PlantingMoneySeeds.com was in the works ;)

    PHILIP: What about maybe partnering with other writers? Have you ever considered that?
    MIRANDA: I actually had somebody offer, “Maybe we could partner, and I’ll do this and you can do that.” It’s something that’s been suggested to me, but I haven’t given serious thought to, but I guess maybe more and more, I’ll have to think about it.
