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.
Want to know the latest about how to move into this freelance writing lifestyle?
With expert advice and interviews, detailed actions plans and specific insights, the Freelance Writing Roadmap podcast rolls out insights each week.Take me there, Crist.
