Who's Teaching This?

Hey, I'm Carolyn Crist — a freelance journalist specializing in health, science and medicine for national publications such as Reuters, Runner's World and Wired.

I'm a former daily newspaper reporter who decided it was time to say "buh-bye to the 9-to-5" and try writing on my own at home, building a freelance lifestyle that allows me to do what I want during the day (and, ahem, pays 3x what my staff jobs paid).

As part of my TEDxUGA talk in 2017, I focused on the "Future of Work" idea that we can ALL say ciao to the tethered-to-the-desk life and make careers of our own.

Call it what you will — the gig economy, the freelance marketplace or the individual contract model — the future of work is changing as we know it. Either we adapt and thrive or struggle and fall behind.

Yeah, tell me more about this.

I need more!

Want to know the latest about how to move into this freelance writing lifestyle?
