Holistic Freelancing & Virtual Assistants with Anthony Sills
“I think in freelancing, if you approach it with a business mentality —and that doesn’t mean to work yourself ragged and hustle — if you set your life and your business up right, there’s tons of options.”

In this episode with Anthony Sills of ProfessionalPen, we talk about his transition from a 9-5 in mortgage banking to freelancing, moving from copywriting  to running a content marketing agency for software/SaaS companies, and a generally healthier life as a freelancer — partly because of increased control over his income and exposure to racism.

Anthony touches on some really interesting points including demand-based pivoting, working with a VA, why he doesn’t need to bill 40 hours a week, and adjusting to life during a pandemic after extrajudicial killings of Black people getting media attention again.

He’s also got some really good perspective on checking in on your business health and useful advice that he would’ve given his former freelance self. If you’re looking for help from Anthony for your own writing projects, swing by ProfessionalPen.io
