To say that I am honored would be an understatement, as after many years of trying to find freelance work, I finally found someone who is giving me a chance.
I wrote a proposal on the website called, Upwork.com (This is a merger of former freelance sites, oDesk and Elance) to someone who was looking for a writer/blogger of golf material for a website directed towards women. I wasn’t sure how many proposals got sent, but I put my best writing forward and hoped for the best.
A few days later, I was at my part-time office job when I got a pop-up message from my UpWork app; I wondered who was contacting me. My proposal caught the eye of the potential employer and they were interested in having ME write for them. I was over-the-moon and so happy that I could finally get my break, and I did.
There are a lot of freelancers out there that yearn for a chance to write about what they love (I mean, who wouldn’t want that opportunity)? I am only one little fish in a big pond of other fish that have more experience and even more talent. I would sell myself short as I was afraid to sound arrogant in my abilities. As I have gotten older, I am not afraid to do that anymore. I have to let my passion show through my writing, and if I can do that then the sky’s the limit for possibilities.
Someone finally saw my passion for both writing and golf, and gave me the chance to write an article about it. I will include the link below. Please feel free to leave me feedback and comments as I can only grow from them.

Enjoy and I hope that it can be a motivation to a try a sport that has meant so much to me.
