Nick Dauk is an internationally published travel writer and freelance copywriter. In 2018, he left his stable job at a sports broadcasting company to pursue a career as a writer.
Freelancing has its perks, like being able to travel and work from around the world, but Dauk says it was also stressful in the beginning to find clients and develop a consistent revenue stream.
For people aspiring to write full-time, Dauk recommends securing a few paid gigs before quitting your day job, being flexible with rates, and being open to doing all types of writing, from editorial and social to copy and product writing.
