Clever or Clear — Today’s Copywriters Don’t Have a Choice

More often we’re seeing our work on small screens that feature less space and thus require quicker thoughts. Many copywriters focus more on crafting ideas or content which don’t involve lots of conventional writing.

To Inc or Not To Inc?

If you are a freelancer or a 1099 contractor, you can work under your own name and social security number, under a DBA, or you can choose a more official type of legal business entity to operate under.

In the old jobs-a-plenty economy, the answer might have been creative freedom, or indecision about how you wanted to spend your future and who you wanted to spend it with — the old failure-to-commit problem. Or perhaps you were just using the freelance life as a way of getting your foot in the door when you were just out of school or in the midst of a career change.

But if you follow my exclusive, six-step program, you too can answer the “what do you do?” question by saying “I’m freelancing right now” (instead of “I got laid off” or “I’m between jobs”) — and really mean it.
