I’m not going to paraphrase – blogs get recursive enough. I will suggest you go over there and read the list and see how it matches your view of your freelance writing business and life.
A couple of my favorites are:
- Always in your business, under-promise and over-deliver. I love looking like a star, and if I run into problems at least I don’t look like a fool.
- Do not allow yourself to be belittled, insulted, or demeaned verbally or in writing by others. If I don’t stand up for me who will? OTOH, sometimes I walk away. But I like the self-worth this represents.
