The State of Full-Time Freelancers’ Income
Kelly James-Enger has completed her survey of freelancers’ income. She surveyed 100 writers, and the results are, well, encouraging and discouraging at the same time. On one hand, 11% of respondents earned more than $100,001 last year. On the other, 27% earned less than $20,000 last year. What would be interesting would be to see what the correlation is between time spent freelancing and income — do those with more years under their belt tend to earn more?
As I mentioned in a previous post, I work part-time hours and earn from $70-$80,000 per year, most of that from magazine writing. Anyone else want to share or discuss? Check out Kelly’s survey and let us know what you think! [lf]
