You may be an editor but you're also a small business owner. If you don't manage your time effectively, your income will suffer (and perhaps your relationships will, as well.) Daphne Gray-Grant, a former senior editor at The Vancouver Sun — back when it was a real newspaper — quit the newspaper business in 1995 and launched her own communications firm. Her triplet children were one-year-olds at the time. While her children have grown, she has written her own book, ghosted many blogs, edited for major corporations, coached writers around the world and been highly profitable every year. Her system can work for you, too.
