First, let me say that I’m not DAVE Ramsey, guru of how to be debt free. Same surname, Ramsey, probably means we have some common ancestors…but then everyone does. And I’m certainly not debt free. Not even after authoring more than 100 books in a writing career that spans over half a century. I do have more hair than Dave does, if that counts.

I’m DAN Ramsey and I have been fortunate enough to build a prolific career as an author of everything from books to magazine articles to children’s literature, product manuals, advertising copy, news, marketing collateral, and more on dozens of interesting topics. I once calculated that there are more than a million copies of books I’ve written in the world — none on the New York Times Best-Seller List, but most of them still contributing to mankind’s overall knowledge. That feels good.

So I clearly realize that I’m not a famous writer, nor a rich writer — but I am a profitable writer. For most of my working life, I’ve made money with words, about 25 years of that as a self-employed “freelance” writer. With it, I’ve fed myself and my family — plus assorted friends and pets. I write because I love my job and because I love to eat. I’m a Working Writer!

Want more guidance on how to build a career as a Working Writer? Take a look at my three latest books, The Working WriterWorking Writer Secrets, and Working Writer Business Plan. Each is filled with practical and proven information on building a successful writing career, with real-world examples. They are now available via Amazon as Kindle e-books for just $2.99 USD each. Meantime, you can email me at workingwriter@danramsey.com.

Back to work! 😉
