About Us

FreelanceWithUs is owned by author and full-time freelancer P. J. Aitken, who also goes by several other pen names. You can find his Upwork profile here.

Aitken has been writing since a very young age and struggled for many years to earn a living from his work. This changed in 2012 when he self-published a comedy novel to great acclaim. He followed this with more publication, before using this success to establish himself on the Elance and oDesk websites.

Aitken began to spend more and more time freelancing, and in 2015 he made it to the very top of the Elance rankings. In the same year he sold his previously self-published novels to a trade publisher and also signed a nonfiction contract for The Online Writers’ Companion through which he relayed his experiences as a freelancer and provided tips on how others could achieve the same success.

These days Aitken tries to devote as little time to freelancing as possible, preferring to work on his books, and on other projects. Most of the freelance work he does is for long-term clients, and he is forced to reject many of the invites that he receives. He is still happy to teach others though, which he does through his book, through occasional events and through the FreelanceWithUs website.

FreelanceWithUs and its forum both operate under the Compulsion Media brand.
