Are you stuck in a routine wherein you wake up early to prepare for work, travel more than an hour to your office, spend 9 (or more!) hours doing boring and never-ending work for a boss that you hate, clock out tired and weary without a sense of fulfillment, travel more than an hour again to go home, eat, prepare for bed, cuddle and spend time with your family (if you're not too tired), sleep for less than 8 hours only to wake up early the same morning to repeat this routine?
Then it is time for you to ditch that routine and become a freelance writer. Where work and play is possible.

A workshop like no other
Don't mistake this workshop to be like the ones you have attended so far. What does this workshop have that is different? Unlike, other workshop that offers general insights in being a freelancer, this workshop will guide you through everything step by step.
In this workshop, you walk in an employee tired of their day job, or an employee looking for extra income, You come out still an employee but with a renewed spirit and a long term freelancing job if you are chosen. If not, you still walk out with a freelancing profile that is ready to send out your first application and accept your new job.
Still curious about what I am talking about? Here are some of the things you will learn.

Her ideal Friday night would be with a book & coffee while her favorite shopping destination would be bazaar or thrift stores.
