MBP #18: How to Build a Prolific Freelance Writing Career, with Miranda Marquit

Miranda MarquitThere are many paths to building a business and today’s chat is with Miranda Marquit, a prolific freelance writer who is very well known in the personal finance blogosphere. She has, in several years, built up an impressive freelance writing career that many would be envious of.

Would it surprise you to know that she didn’t go to school for finance or economics or something money-related? She was a former physics and biology major!

What will you learn in this episode:

  • How Miranda designed her freelance career around the idea of a flexible schedule
  • What sites she used to look for writing gigs
  • What to look for and what to avoid in gigs
  • How she moved up the “value chain” to earn more while writing less
  • How to find a niche and dominate it by being the “go to” freelancer
  • How she set her rates (and when she increased them!)

    I don’t tend to retain what I hear well. Is it possible to post a transcript?
