Freelance Writing Coaching

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.

Kaleigh’s advice and guidance not only made me feel more confident in my freelance writing abilities, but also more focused on the next steps I needed to take. She really helped me narrow my scope and pointed me in the right direction. She’s the best!

Kaleigh’s coaching program was the kick in the ass I needed to start actually taking steps to grow my freelance writing career. She helped me figure out a big-picture direction, gave me confidence to commit to it, and then encouraged me week-by-week to follow through on working toward those goals.

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.

Working with Kaleigh has been great! She helped me to build up my network and her process is established but set up in a way that allowed my business to grow and shift. I’m so grateful I chose her to be my coach.

Kaleigh has helped me completely turn things around for my copywriting business in the best way possible. She helped me figure out what I want to do and how to get there.

Kaleigh’s advice was 1001% gold. During our session she hit on some big pain points I had been struggling with and packed in great insights about what companies in my space are looking for that I’d never even thought of before.

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.

Taking Kaleigh’s coaching program was the best thing I could’ve done for my writing business. She not only taught me absolutely crucial things about pricing, client care, organization, and research, but also helped me realize my unique value and purpose as a writer. My confidence has skyrocketed since working with her. She is so intentional, and our time together was never wasted.

My time with Kaleigh was so worthwhile! It was so helpful to talk to a real person and have the opportunity to ask all the questions I had. She was very patient and completely transparent, sharing some insider’s tips and tricks you can’t find online. After working with her, I felt less overwhelmed and ready to get this started on my own, with new tools under my belt.
