Thinking that helping and charging money are mutually exclusive

Often it seems that, in our minds, we’ve equated helping people with giving things for free. And at the same time, we believe that making money is somehow a bad thing. But in the end, we’re running a business, and the purpose of a business is to make money. In this episode, I explain how we can think differently about the action of helping people with our editing services.

We post information and editing tips online to be helpful. Being helpful online is great and it builds our brand and positions us as an authority. But the free content isn’t going to make an author qualified to do their own editing, based on just reading a series of blog posts. The best practical help we can give an author is to provide our editing services.

Are you taking the next step to invite potential clients to work with you?
