I have been doing freelance work via Fiverr and Upwork that has included a mix of ghostwriting novels and screenplays, proofreading/editing, and copywriting (usually in the form of 100-300 word product descriptions), as well as writing articles. (I currently have a recurring gig writing martial arts articles for a new site called Playrs Club.)
I would like to strike out on my own so that, instead of getting paid the WAY below market rates found on Fiverr and Upwork, I can earn enough to make an actual living at this...or at least, a point where I can earn enough income to not need to do two jobs or work overtime at my day job.
A lot of the courses I have read out there on this topic are ridiculously vague when it comes to how you can land clients willing to pay the big bucks. Does anyone have any advice/tips/guidance? Thank you!
