Angela J. Brown
Angela Brown is a freelance writer specializing in the finance and real estate market. Before starting her freelance career, she worked for two newspapers as a copyeditor and reporter. She started working as a freelance writer so she could work from home while raising her two kids.
During the last year, Angela focused on developing her knowledge of the freelance market so she could move away from content mills and start working with reliable clients. With help from The Writer’s Den resources, she’s more than doubled her monthly income and even used the increased cash flow to pay for a family vacation to Disneyland (in cash!).
