In 2014, I had pitched several article ideas to an editor at Forbes that were rejected. The first rejection would have stopped me cold in my tracks if I weren’t determined to see my name as an author in this publication.
I persisted. And was finally published in June 2014.
I was elated when I got the message from the editor that they were interested in the article. However, words cannot describe how excited and accomplished I felt when I received the email informing me that my guest post, 12 Ways to Write a Captivating Bio, was published on Forbes.
Although I was not paid for this articles (Hey, it was Forbes), I have earned thousands of dollars in bio business as a result.
How to Earn Thousands from a Free Guest Post
Three ways I earn thousands of dollars from professional bios:
- Writing bios for executives, professionals and entrepreneurs;
- Sales from my How to Write a POWERFUL Professional Bio eBook; and
- Editing professional bios.
