As someone who has always had an entrepreneur spirit, I am will no doubt always encourage people to learn how to make income on their terms. Especially writers. You see, books have a soft spot in my heart, and for the longest time I had this voice in my head telling me, “You are a writer.” Then, when I started this little blog in my own corner of the internet I had a lightbulb go off… “I’m a writer!” So if you have had that voice in your head telling you you are a writer, here are 8 ideas for how you can get started writing from home (or anywhere in the world).

Analyzing the progress you’ve made, whether it is building up that savings account you opened or hacking away at your student debt, are wins you should take pride in! There are also areas you may have stumbled, maybe you had to take money out of your savings account or you used your high-interest credit card a bit more than you would have liked and those balances are a little too high. These roadblocks happen, life happens, a pandemic even happens; you assess the damage to your progress and go from there.
