    Thanks for checking this out! :D

    I'm really excited to join the community. You guys are awesome! So for now I've got a couple of questions and I'm hoping to get pointed in the right direction.

    Here's the deal: I'm 22 years old. Until recently I'd been considering going to grad school or aimlessly wandering through mediocre jobs until I find one I like. But over the last three months I've been ghostwriting articles and blog posts for an increasing number of clients. Now I have too many projects and not enough time to write. I want to transition towards a business model where I subcontract the content writing. Also, I want to expand and provide SEO services as well. So I'm looking for advice/thoughts on how best to do this.

    1) How/through what medium or website(s) should I outsource content writing projects? What are your thoughts/tips/advice on choosing your first employee? Should I dish the work out on a per project basis to multiple freelance writers online or try to find a full-time person in the flesh?

    2) Where can I find templates for SEO deliverables, reports, contracts etc.? Do I have to purchase a kit for these or are there any free resources online or in the downloads section?

    3) What's the best software program to create high quality deliverables, reports, contracts etc.?

    4) Are there any worthwhile software programs that can automatically generate various SEO reports for any given website?

    5) What tools/resources are must-have for getting started and being productive/profitable in this line of work?

    6) Are there any graduate degree programs worth considering to learn this info and get credentials (or should I read, bootstrap and build a portfolio)?

    7) What other questions should I be asking?

    Please provide whatever input you can! I really appreciate the help!
