Lifestyle changes can be a very good thing, particuarly for freelance writers. While there are bumps in building a business with your writing, there are also many benefits. In this episode of Write Along Radio, Catherine and Kevin discuss the benefits (and drawbacks) of running their own author and freelance writer businesses.
They are joined by Liisa Vexler of The Family Freedom project. Lisa coaches her clients on how to create a freelance writing business where they can work from anywhere in the world.
Does getting paid to write from a cottage in Hungary (like Catherine did this summer) sound good to you? If so, make sure you give this episode a listen!

Tips and Tools for freelance writers recommended by Catherine and Liisa:
- Make sure you have back-up wifi access in case your primary internet access gets funky
We’ve added a 45 minuted video to the Write Along Radio bonuses in which Catherine interviews Kevin about the launch of his latest book, The Page Turners: Economy of Fear. To access the video and other bonuses, join the newsletter.
In today’s episode, we learn about getting creative projects done with soon to be Canadian MEGA star, Daniel Beirne. Also, Kevin eats perogies and talks about not dating in small towns. Plus Catherine refrains from spilling the beans.
Daniel Beirne is one of the creators of Space Riders: Division Earth – a web series through CTV that won a Canadian Screen Award in 2015. He’s also won a Canadian Comedy Award for Multimedia / Best Writing in a TV or Web Series for another gem, Dad Drives. Dan has many creative projects to his name (as you’ll see int the show notes and his imbd page), and has a knack for getting things done (and done well). In today’s interview, Catherine picks his brain about being creative and productive, and why it’s important to treat each project like it’s your career – because it is! Whether you’re making moola or not from the gig.
Writer, producer, director and actor – Daniel Beirne is an up and coming Canadian talent to notice.
