I am still struggling as an online writer but I am blaming no one but myself for what happened. I haven't stopped writing anyway and this time around, I do it for myself. I can't pitch my talent at providing content if I stop writing which is why Rashkin's latest article hit a nerve on what I'm doing at the moment. Let me quote a part of it.
There are things that are not worth the money.
[Referring to an agent that quit] He said "Aaron, no amount of money is worth that you just did. You just answered your phone at 11:30 at night ... talked until midnight just to convince someone's prospect to join a business that claims to be about 'time freedom'. It's BS, man. I'm out.
And it also explained why my team was burned out and I constantly had to enroll a bunch of people every month to replace the ones who quit. They were exhausted and they'd lost their belief.
Now I am my own boss. My phone is not bugged with callers as much as I expect it to be and I am free to write whatever whether as an affiliate for Amazon or to write for MusicalsOnline.com.
