First of all, let me tell you a little bit about myself. My name is Mersudin Cejvan and I am a friendly guy from a small country called Bosnia and Herzegowina. When it comes to Bosnia, it has always been my home, and it always will be. After all, Bosnia is a beautiful place that is filled with some of the most beautiful natural elements that you can see these days. However, while it is true that Bosnia is packed with all sorts of job opportunities, I just couldn't find something that would allow me to make a decent amount of money from it. And that is where the world of freelancing comes into play!

How I Came Across a Great Freelancing Platform?
Now, there is absolutely no doubt that I have spent a significant amount of time wondering what my next job would be like. It was actually pretty hard to find one since I was now almost completely focused on becoming a freelancer. Of course, I would go and do some work here and there ''in the real world'', but I just couldn't see myself doing that for the rest of my life. That's when I realized that I should try my luck on a freelancing platform called Upwork. And while the beginning of my freelancing career was a bumpy road, to say the least, I finally started getting hired by clients.

As far as my services, my main job is to write articles and blog posts for clients from all around the world. Apart from writing articles and blog posts, I can also write product descriptions, stories, website content, and other similar stuff. When it comes to writing, I offer all of my services online. So, pretty much all of my work is remote, and that is something that I really like about this job. My current health insurance situation has nothing to do with my freelancing career, but I'll see what I can do about it in the future.

The Most Challenging Thing About My Freelancing Career
It is pretty safe to say that there are many people out there who think that writing isn't an easy job, and I have to say that they are totally right. However, getting new clients is one of the most challenging things about my freelance writing career. Since there are so many good freelancers out there, you really need to stand out if you want to be hired by clients. But that sense of competition is something that's really fun about this whole thing.

One other thing that I really like about being self-employed is the fact that I can set up and control my schedule. As long as I provide my clients with high-quality work, it's all good. I might even create my own website or something like that in the future. But as for right now, that's not something that I am planning on doing anytime soon. However, a nice Instagram business profile would come in handy now, wouldn't it?

That being said, becoming a freelance writer is one of the best decisions that I have ever made. It allows me to make a decent amount of money from the comfort of my home. I will do my best to continue to evolve as a freelance writer. So, if you are planning on becoming a freelance writer but don't know where to begin, you should try using one of the many freelancing platforms that can be found on the Internet. Who knows, you might be able to completely turn your life around, and I mean this in the best possible way!
