40 Well-Earning Freelance Writers Teach You How to Cash In Too

When I told people that I was going to become a freelance writer, I got a lot of terms like “hobby” and “side gig” thrown at me from friends and family. No one believed I could actually make a full-time, decent wage working for myself.

You might’ve heard the same comments too.

How to Make Your Workspace More Efficient and Organized

Whether you spend your workday in an office cubicle or telecommute out of a home office, your workspace should be organized and not resemble a cluttered workstation littered with unorganized files and sticky notes plastered all over the desk.

This applies not just to individual work areas, but also to the entire office if you share the space with other staff. A few small renovations are all it takes to make the office more “breathable” for the lack of a better term.
