My Multiple Incomes

| Blogging | August 13, 2012

Tell us a little about yourself?

I’m a 27 year old blogger who also happens to work full time.  I’m married, have an awesome black lab, and live in San Diego, CA.  I balance my blogging and freelance writing business at night and during the weekend, and focus on my family during the day.

How did you get started in your business?

I started blogging in 2009 at The College Investor, partly because I was bored, and partly because I had a passion for personal finance.  That led to me creating a second site focused on my personal philosophy of developing multiple income streams, which then inadvertently led to me creating my freelance writing business.  

Tell us about the product or service that you offer.

I started freelance writing to fill a need in blogs needing short posts on a given topic.  Running a blog myself, I know how writing a post can be tedious.  One of my strengths is being able to write – I just sometimes have difficulty coming up with the topic.  Freelance post writing is the perfect fit because you come up with the topic and any requirements, and I can write it for you in a short period of time.  I pride myself in being able to quickly fulfill customer needs.

Is there anything else you would like to share with us?

I think that my business shows that there are opportunities out there for anyone to build multiple income streams.  Leverage what you’re good at, and you can be successful.

You can read my story about stumbling into freelancing here: My Multiple Incomes.  You can view My Multiple Incomes profile page to inquire about services.
