Open to anyone who has a freelance business. You don't have to be a writer but you do have to be able to articulate your story well, with good English.

I'm looking for someone who has established their own freelance business, to write approx 800 to 1000 words on why or how you became a freelancer. Your copy will appear as a chapter in a book to be published in both hard and soft copy, and your chapter will be credited to you, as the author. This is not a ghostwriting project, you will take ownership of the chapter you write.

I'm particularly interested in freelancers who may have had to overcome an obstacle or challenge in their life, and as a result of that, decided to start their own business. For example:

You may have lost your job or couldn't find employment

Had a health challenge, disability or overcome addiction

Couldn't work in a regular job because of children

Wanted to start a business without money

Didn't like what they were doing and wanted a complete change

Wanted to work from home or anywhere in the world

Did not like working for someone else

Wanted to reinvent themselves etc etc


Beginning paragraph/s would act as an introduction to you (and it should be creative/punchy).

What you were doing before you started freelancing; were you earning an income?

Were you having difficulty finding work, or did you always want to start your own business?

The challenge or obstacles you had in your life?

Why you decided on freelancing? What gave you the idea to start your business?

What type of skills do you offer? What are the benefits for you as a freelancer?

Where are you working from ... bedroom, lounge, office in your home?

What platforms do you use to obtain work?


This outline is only a guide, but your copy must flow like a story, in a way that's engaging to an audience and should cover the above areas in a way that's creative. You set your own tone.


Please DON'T start your copy with your name or what you do. Choose a creative way into your story, here are some examples:

"I never expected my life to take the turn it did ...."

"For some reason, I always thought .... "

"The idea to start a business came after ....."

"I knew nothing about .... when I started my business ...."

"The idea to work for myself never really hit me until ..."

"By the time I turned (insert age) I was sick of working for other people ...."

"I always liked the idea of working in my pyjamas .... "

These are just examples, you may start however you choose but it must be "punchy", something that will grab a readers attention. Your story will be credited to you and you may have an opportunity to include a short bio at the end of your chapter: your business name or website if you have one, or your freelancer name.

I am really interested in contracting and presenting a broad cross-section of people with different cultural, physical and financial backgrounds and different experiences. I'm especially interested in people faced with a hardship or challenge and how freelancing/working from home became a solution. I will choose approx 12 freelancers. If you are successful, I will create a specific project and milestone for you, based on your quote.

Please QUOTE a FIXED PRICE for your copy.

I will only choose from those who respond with a quick pitch on what you will write about. It needs to be very brief and you can msg privately if you want.

Example of Pitch:

I'm a 50 year old woman from (Name of Country), I suffer from a disability (tell me the disability) which prevented me from working from the age of 42. Unable to find employment, I decided to ...... Just give me enough so I have an idea of your story.

AND I would like the first three to four sentences of your copy. This will demonstrate that you are able to tell a story in a creative way and that your English is okay.

I look forward to working together.
