New post up at the Freelance to Freedom Project! If you find yourself consistently falling short on your income goals, but you aren't sure why, check it out - you could find your answers. 
Income goals are one of the very first things people set when they start freelancing. You know you’ve gotta make that money to survive, after all.

Season’s greetings, multipotentialite friends! I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling the holiday spirit.

Hey look! People asked me questions and I answered them semi-coherently (I think). 
Today we have a great guest who have a big passion in the content marketing domain. You can read her articles on FastCompany, KISSMetrics, Lifehack and other

Today's blog post! I interviewed Evan about how she uses Filofax to stay organized--plenty of stationery pictures to drool over, too. 
When many freelancers are turning to online tools to stay organized, they forget analog ones can be useful too. Read how with Evan's tips...

I don't know, but I can ask her! And yeah. I always WANT to stick with an analog system, but it never works. So I was super excited to get to nerd out on how someone else makes analog stuff work.

Introduction
Hopefully you know this is the right Michelle because, hi, hair. If not:
  • I have a Shiba Inu named Rain (which everyone thinks is a reference to actual precipitation - however, the fact is that I named her after Reynard, but didn't want to spell the shortened version of her name as "Reyn" because then I would feel like a pretentious douchebag)
  • Raphael is my favorite Ninja Turtle and I will accept no substitutes
  • I'm a big ol' geek of various flavors (Joss Whedon, Doctor Who, Harry Potter, Fringe, general enthusiasm for knowledge, etc.) 
  • Chocolate and tacos are high among my favorite things
Oh, you want like, srs bizness stuff? Okay:

I make systems/productivity/organization/all that incredibly boring sounding stuff incredibly NOT boring so that you + your biz can reap the rewards. Without wanting to stick a dull spoon in your eye. I’m an expert at finding out how + why something works (and then putting that knowledge to usually-good use), being grade-A curious, & getting things Done with a capital-D. I have…

  • a book that hit #1 in Systems & Planning and #2 in Entrepreneurship in the Kindle store
  • a Youtube channel where I review project and task management tools, which averages 5,500+ views/month
  • worked with six figure business owners behind the scenes and helped them take their business to a new level without stressing out about it
  • consulted for a startup that works with the Rockefeller Foundation
Tada.
