I feel pretty good about our first overseas month. We did not achieve our goal budget nor were we able to offset it enough with our income. However, I think we learned a lot and are ready for the challenge that February brings.
I'm learning that freelance writing is a lot like fishing. First, you have to scope out the waters, looking for the right place to throw out your hook.

If you're successful, you get to eat. If not, you get to come back and try again the next day.
