About

Welcome to A Freelance Life!

I’m Ameesha, a freelance book editor and founder of The Book Shelf LTD.

Whether you’re already a freelancer, are trying to make the switch to full-time freelancing, or are hoping to escape the 9-5, this site will give you tips, guides, and advice on how to become a successful freelancer. You’ll also find resources such as freelancing platforms and helpful apps. This site will help you embrace the freelance life!

For many years, I was stuck in a 9-5 job that I didn’t enjoy, but I became a freelancer in my spare time until I could gain the work-life balance I wanted. After a few years, I quit my full-time job and travelled the world for a year with my husband, freelancing on the road, on the beach, and by the pool. After successfully freelancing for several years, I started my own limited company, and I’d love to help other freelancers become successful too.

Freelancing really does enable you to live the life you want, but it’s not always an easy path, so this website is here to help you avoid common mistakes. It will answer frequently asked questions about freelancing, give you insider information from someone who’s done it, and help you on your freelance journey.

I’m a strong believer that whatever situation you find yourself in, you have the power to turn things around! If you’re stuck in a 9-5 job but want to be a freelancer, you can do it. If you’re freelancing but struggling to make ends meet, there’s light at the end of the tunnel, and if you’re a successful freelancer but want to make more of it, then it’s possible.

Whether you want a better work-life balance, more freedom to control your life, the ability to work and travel at the same time, or want to do something more exciting with your life than a 9-5 job, then freelancing can help you achieve all of these things.
