Most freelancers go out on their own because they love being creative, not because they want to run a small business. But managing your career is just as important as crafting quality content and meeting deadlines. While most freelancers don’t need a formal business plan, engaging in business planning can be an invaluable process. That process and other strategies are also vital for anyone looking to grow their business. Sophia Bennett, freelance writer, editor and communications consultant, and ASBPE board member, and Ruth E. Thaler-Carter, freelance writer/editor and author/publisher of “Get Paid to Write! Getting Started as a Freelance Writer,” address key topics including: why business planning doesn’t have to be scary — and why every freelancer should do it at least once a year; ideas for creating a business plan that works for you; how to sustain and grow a freelance practice; and tips on setting rates.
