As everyone shelters in place, small firms need solid copywriting services to keep their websites fresh. I specialize in working with small firms. You worry about your work, I’ll worry about the words

I am starting my own firm next month. I am very excited and I know it will be a struggle, but this is my time and I will do whatever it takes to succeed. (Questions in comments)

Anyone struggle with not being an equity partner? I find myself frustrated being left out of decision-making, interviewing, etc. I’m the only non-equity partner in my firm, so I have no peer group.

It depends on the field. I immigration $50,000-65,000 is average but you can make much more if you become a solo practitioner.
