I recently had the chance to interview Aimee Davison, a Montrealer who has gone from underpaid actress to Social Media Guru with her blog, 100 Jobs. Asking her about how she did it, I also wanted to know what advice she had for writers, specifically, and her main concept was one that most will agree with:
Don’t sell yourself short.
Indeed, the quote I liked best from this particular interview was:
Do you want to be known as the $10 freelancer? Would you put that on your business card? If no, stop accepting a pittance and pursue bigger clients with better professional standards.
