Talking About the Freelance Life on a Podcast

Is “entrepreneurship” an idea you’ve been kicking around for some time?

Do you wish you had more freedom in your day to day?

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you really loved what you did?

I was recently a guest on Liz Theresa’s podcast, Liz on Biz with Liz Theresa. For those of you who don’t know, Liz is an online marketer and web designer/developer hailing from Boston who helps women launch and build online businesses they love.

Liz on Biz is all about where life and entrepreneurship intersect. The goal of the show is to help budding entrepreneurs as well as business owners who are in transition feel more equipped, less fearful, and more confident moving forward in their lives and businesses by hearing stories directly from the experts and moguls who have “made it” to the other side, so to speak.

On my episode with Liz, I got to share…

  • How to find freelance work.
  • How to price your business accurately and fairly.

Liz is a great interviewer and I had a lot of fun talking to her. In fact, she’s now helping me revamp one of my other websites,

The interview turned out AMAZING and I sincerely recommend that anyone who wants to start a business or start over in their business subscribe, listen, and leave a review.

Looking for a new business logo

I’m looking for a new business logo for, and the blue one above is my favorite so far.

Here’s another version:







Below is the current one, which I still like a lot, but I’m thinking of changing it because I want to better use the phrase “Rent a Journalist” in my logo:



I like the reporter’s notebook part of it, but I think the tagline should be more prominent.






There’s also this:

Rent logo







I’m not a big fan of it, but wonder what others think. I’ve commissioned one two more logo, which shouldn’t be ready until next week.

Updated April 22, 2016. Here are the final two:











Let me know what you think so far, and I’ll update with a final decision within a few weeks.

Rockland Trust

Writing entire business banking site for Rockland Trust


Last year I did a lot of work for Rockland Trust, a bank in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. The work is finally published on the bank’s website, and is part of a redesign of the site and reworking of how it tries to get business clients.

I wrote the entire Business Banking area of the website, writing about 50 posts. It was a lot of work and I’m very proud of how it turned out.

The topics included how to start a business, managing employees, business loans, and business growing strategies, among many others.

I can do the same for your business, writing stories that will get readers to your website so they can become customers. Contact me for more information.
