Once I started getting more work than I could handle on my own I realized I needed to get more organized, and only take on jobs I was interested in. I was also doing a lot of freelance writing at the time. Through that freelance writing I found a consulting firm that had lots of clients that wanted online writing and editing, and signed a contract with them. I did all of their work, and they got a commission. It worked out great for both of us because they needed someone to do it, and it gave me a consistent paycheck, although it was less than I would have made had I found the jobs myself.
