Rubber, Meet Road. Tap Out Phone Numbers, and Write Email Messages (60 Minutes a Day, Minimum.)
Businesses and publications need writers. All you need to do is contact enough people to get hired by one person. And then by another. Keep going. If you’re working a day job, 60 minutes can be hard to find, because you’ll be contacting people during business hours. Use your lunch hour to make calls (ask your boss if that’s OK.) Alternatively, do all your contacting via email and social media in the evenings.
