The life of a freelancer can be a struggle. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a good kind of struggle. And while freelance life can be challenging, I try to constantly remind myself to be humble and grateful. When you’re building your empire and living out dreams those attributes will become key in your growth.


But as prepared as I thought I was, there were so many things that I didn’t think about until those things started choking the sh*t outta me, nearly suffocating and draining my creative juices. And I swear that’s not an exaggeration.


I’ve never been that girl who claims to know it all so I called on my blogger babes for help. Shout out to them for giving what I know to be the best “got damn” tips ever on what you (and me) should know about freelancing.

    Thank you Ty for yet another great article. Not only have you given me a few new bloggers to follow but some really insightful things to think about. My biggest hang up is letting go of that steady check. I’m an RN by day and that safety net is addictive.

    Hi, Ty! I have a question. I’ve been blogging for a while now, but I’ve only recently started frequent blogging. My question for you is: what do you use to track your visitors to your blog? Do you track using Google Analytics? I’ve tried applying for some campaigns, but I unfortunately don’t have the proper statistics to qualify for any campaigns.

    Thanks in advance for your help <3
