I'm big on writing. On some days, I churn out 10 to 20 articles. But I don't ghostwrite for someone else or do any freelancing work.
I recently got approached by some ‘guru's to do some writing work for them. Flattered as I was, I had to refuse them politely. And we still maintain the relationship. I made it clear that I'm a marketer and not purely a writer and they get it.
The reason is this: I'd rather build my own business than someone else's. I don't care if it's a guru or not. Most gurus will be out to ‘use’ you if they see you are a good writer. Truth is, they don't have much intention of reciprocating in the future unless you suddenly crop up with a big email list.
Yeah, so that's why I write for myself. If I wanted to write for someone else, I'd rather be a roaming freelancer than to be tied under someone.
The best-case scenario is if you gather a group of people to write for you.
Envision this for a moment:
You only have 24 hours a day. If you hire 3 writers to write for you, you are leveraging their time too. And if you hire an army of writers to churn out articles for you in a short space of time, you have the potential for massive long-term traffic. Your articles will be working for you round the clock to get traffic and sales for you. If you write for someone else, it will be your articles doing the work for them.
As an employee and as a freelancer or a ghostwriter, you can't do that!
