Adventures of John Wooten, World’s Strongest Man, Master of Masters


Congratulations to John Wooten on his latest release. Click here to view the book on Amazon.

From the back cover:

Adventures of John Wooten World’s Strongest Man, Master of Masters is a collection of ten short stories including my autobiography, which introduces the reader to my career and adventures. The collection begins with young John’s introduction to Kung Fu; each story is a different adventure.

In my stories, the World’s Strongest Man is presented as a superhero figure who does whatever he can to help all of humankind, to prevent evil and promote good works.

I would like to share my experiences and life lessons with children, teens, and adults everywhere, to show them that they can accomplish anything with perseverance and fortitude. I hope to entertain as well as show that the possibilities are endless.

As the Worlds Strongest Man, I am the holder of 143 strength records. See my feats of strength on YouTube, under Strongman John Wooten.

Soon, this valuable information about an important part of American history will be available at the click of a button.

The origin of the word “Freelance”

Word CatcherI come from a long line of mercenaries. Medieval mercenaries, to be exact.

Free-lancers were once free-companions who pledged “their loyalties and their lancers to whomever they pleased.” And yes, free-lancers charged even then. Free meant they had the free will to work for whomever they wanted to work for. It didn’t mean their services were free.

I love reading about the origins of words, and this lovely little book, Word Catcher, by Phil Cousineau, provides fascinating tidbits on every page. One of my favorite things about this book is that it is like a little dictionary. I can pop it open to any page at all, and learn something new.

For now, I have a lot of freelancing work to catch up on.


Freelancers: How much money are you REALLY making?

When I began relying on editing and writing to pay all my bills instead of just some of them, it became increasingly important to get a better handle on what I was making per hour. If you’re a freelancer, or even an editorial freelancer like me, you should really know how much you’re making per hour. If you don’t, that means a part of your finances is a mystery, and this can be dangerous to your wallet.

Getting paid per hour is great, but not all of my clients pay me that way. So, when you’re charging a flat fee for a project, how do you know what you’re really making?

Office Time became a valuable tool for me, recommended by fellow EFA members. I time my work even if I’m not being paid hourly. Office Time allows you to time your work easily and efficiently, and it gives you the option of inputting how much you make per hour—if you’re getting paid hourly. If you’re not, and you’re being paid a flat fee for a project, this program can help newbie freelancers gauge how much they’re really making per hour.

Office Time for Mac. Also available for other platforms.

There are other great programs for tracking your time as well. I love Office Time. Having to tell a client how much you will charge on a given project can be nerve-wracking, and tests your faith in yourself and your own abilities.

There comes a time when you have to acknowledge you deserve to be paid for your skills, especially if you’re relying on them to pay the bills. Are you good at what you do? If the answer is yes, the time is now.

A great tool for freelancers: Office Time

Note: I did not receive any compensation for this, I just wanted to offer my honest opinion of this program.
