When I was getting started with my own freelance writing business, I found myself loaded with questions—and no one to ask.
I tried different courses and eBooks, but my issue was that nothing felt like it was exactly suited for what I was doing. There was a lot of generalized information to learn from, but what about my questions? I just wanted someone to talk to that could help me find my way and share what they’d learned, too.
That's why I’ve created this coaching program—in hopes of helping fellow freelancers make sense of what can be a very confusing world to break into. I call it coaching for the sake of quick communication, but it’s really more like a teacher/mentor relationship.
The Coaching Program
The goal of this one-on-one coaching program is to help you fine-tune your freelance writing business over the course of four weeks.
Here’s how it works:
You’ll complete an intake survey that will help me better understand your unique business and your major concerns/questions so I can tailor our sessions to be exactly what you need.
Each week, we’ll meet for a 30-minute Skype or phone call.
During our call, we'll go over a different aspect of your business, I'll give you a piece of homework (these are business-oriented, not a writing assignment), and then we'll discuss it at the beginning of the next call before moving on to the next lesson.
By the end of the four weeks, you will have:
A clear mission statement
A well-defined niche that will help you better target clients
Contacts with fellow writers, editors, and content managers that you can leverage down the road
A clear picture of how you'll price your services and communicate value to clients
Smart processes in place that make clients love & refer you
6 & 12 month goals set for your business
A list of communities to join that will help you feel more at home in the writing world (and can help you land jobs)
Completed four 30-minute video chat sessions
PLUS: Customizable templates for onboarding new clients and project proposals
Who it’s best for: Beginner-level freelance writers
Price: $250 per session ($1,000 total for four-week program)*
Limited spots: Keep in mind that these coaching sessions are limited, as I only work with one or two students at a time. This allows me to give each person the attention he or she deserves. You will be notified of the next available spot once you complete the application form.
Results: Past participants of this training program have gone on to do incredible things. One was recruited by HubSpot. Others have landed bylines on publications like The Muse, Foundr, and Entrepreneur. Others have grown sustainable writing businesses and are in the 3+ year range of FT freelancing.

As Featured On
While writing is my first love, I’m also a big fan of helping fellow writers discover that freelancing is a viable career option. To see some of the lessons I’ve already shared about freelance writing, check out my blog.
*If the price point of the full program is out of your budget range at the moment, I also offer a one-time phone or Skype coaching session that will cover the question or topic of your choosing. Email me if you're interested in booking one of these sessions instead.
If what you really want is a self-paced course, that's an option I recently partnered with Paul Jarvis to create. Check out Creative Class.
