As a freelancer growing your business is hard and time-consuming. But how do you stay productive even when you have little motivation. Here’s a simple idea where rewarding yourself might be the productivity hack you need.
As a freelance copywriter, I’ve found the secret for creative inspiration.

It’s a beautiful thing and whether you’re a copywriter or other creative, get out and travel.

How does traveling provide this sorcery?
A lesson every freelance copywriter learns on their way to a calendar booked full of great clients, financial freedom, and countless referrals.
