The Writing Coach Podcast with Rebecca L. Weber

Apr 18, 2023

What is your freelance writer business model? What are the skills you need to get you to the next point? Do you prefer to improve your weaknesses or your strengths? What skills are you actively developing right now?

I’ve chosen not to pay too much attention to some skills (like spelling) that seem like a no-brainer to some writers (but that actually have had very little impact on my career). I have focused a lot on some skills (like pitching) that other writers don’t want to invest in–and then can’t grow the career they actually want.
