There it is! Last week, I registered my business name with New York State as Word Grip Action Copywriting Service, LLC. I also received my EIN number so that I can pay taxes on the money I earn in my business.

April has been a busy month. I am winding down from a temporary assignment unrelated to copywriting, decluttering to create space for my business and in this last week reeling from the worst allergies of my life.

No matter how fast and easy things may be advertised in our day, growth takes time and incremental steps are best to anything that will last.
Next month I will write a book review on a book about the life of a freelancer.

Be well until next month.
