What was I doing over the summer? Overcoming my fears and getting back into a bit of speaking and teaching.
Why is that valuable to you? Because the speaking and teaching I’m getting into is all around writing, running a writing business, and using your English major as more than a fancy wall trophy that hides behind you in Skype interviews.
Here’s a 20-minute webinar with College Recruiter on how you can use an English major to make more money freelancing than in a 9-5 job. I’ve done it two years in a row now (first at $59K, soon to be at $89K), and I think it’s an important message to get out there.
If you’re already freelancing and feeling confident, this webinar might not be a valuable investment of your time. But if you’re a new grad (or you know a new grad, or you know people who think freelancing isn’t a viable career) this is a great orientation to the concept of freelancing and the little-known benefits to freelancing over traditional employment.

PS This will be my last post for 2016, as I retreat into my
cocoon office and finish up some personal projects, like the release of the updated 2016 Life After Teaching guide. I’ll announce the winner of the giveaway this Friday via the original blog post and newsletter… and then I’ll see you in the New Year! God bless you!
