How Chintan Zalani Built a Successful Writing Business


India is one of the countries to which you can outsource anything and get talented people working for you at a fraction of what you’d pay to someone in a developed country.

While a lot of people accept these low rates, Chintan Zalani wasn’t satisfied with being paid peanuts. He made the decision to go after high paying clients instead. Today, he only works with people who appreciate the value he provides and compensate him well for it.

So how did he go from being an engineering student who dabbled in writing to an established writer who makes a great living from his writing business?

We all know how volatile freelance writing can be.

One moment everything is running smoothly, and in the next breath a major client decides to drop you, causing you to lose a significant percentage of your income in an instant. How can you insure yourself against this kind of thing? Simple – by having multiple streams of income!

“From the very start of my career, I was aware that it would be a mistake to purely freelance and to never have any other income coming in, so I always had more than one streams of income,” says Ali Luke. “I definitely recommend other freelancers find some time to spend on their own projects.”

Now, almost a decade after she started her freelance writing career, Ali has money coming in from client work; from her e-Books; from her membership site; from her novels; and even from a couple of websites she hasn’t updated in years.

How a 21-Year-Old Student From Lithuania Became a Forbes Contributor


Forbes is one of the most influential business publications in the world.

There are a lot of benefits that come with writing for such an established outlet: it gives you exposure, increases your credibility and makes it easier to attract potential clients. Who wouldn’t want to have “As seen on Forbes” on their portfolio website?

It’s not that easy to get published on Forbes, however. Every day, tons of writers pitch Forbes editors, and most of them get rejected. So how did Laura K. Inamedinova, a 21-year-old student who started writing about business only 8 months ago, manage to become a contributor?

How This 20-Year-Old Student Makes $2,500 Per Month by Freelance Writing



Note from Bamidele: Hassan Ud-deen is one hell of a driven and talented blogger. He first got on my radar when he purchased coaching from me in 2014; he was 18 then. I mean, when most adults were dilly-dallying and pinching-pennying, here’s an 18-year-old who was willing to invest in himself! That, coupled with his writing talent — and Hassan is one talented writer! — and I knew he was going places. Honestly, I’m not surprised with Hassan’s achievement, and I’m very confident that he’ll double and triple his income once he finally graduates from college and can focus on freelance writing full-time.
