The Freelance Writer’s Self-Evaluation Worksheet

In an earlier post I explained how it can help to think like a boss when running your freelance writing business. In that post, I suggested conducting self-evaluations (as if you were an employer evaluating an employee's performance).

Here is a simple self-evaluation worksheet that you can download and fill out for yourself to identify some of your biggest strengths and weaknesses. The idea is to find areas where you can improve and figure out which areas you might be better off delegating to someone else if possible.

I left several blank lines where you can add other skills or attributes you want to evaluate. For example, if you specialize in journalism, you might choose to assess your interviewing skills.
