Yes, you can become a well-paid writer…in just a few short weeks

You love to write. You want to write. Heck, people have told you that you should write.

And you’ve even heard about freelance writing.

But, there’s only one problem:

You don’t have a clue how to begin or if it’s possible to make a living as a writer.

Does this sound like you?

You think freelance writing means churning out bulk writing pieces for pennies.

You’re sure there isn’t a way to land a freelance writing job because there’s too much competition out there.

When you did attempt to find a freelance writing job, you had no idea how to pitch, what to write or how to “sell” yourself.

You feel like you’re spinning your wheels, wasting time reading everything under the sun and paralyzed to take action.

You’re failing miserably.

And to top it all off, you still have to go to your soul-crushing 9-5 job tomorrow.

There’s a better way to make a living from writing, and you don’t need experience or a degree

I was just like you.

I didn’t want to go back to a job that ripped me away from my twins. They were only babies at the time, and my mama bear instinct was in full gear. Plus, daycare costs for twins would have eaten up my paycheck.

I KNEW I had to stay home to raise my twins, but had no idea how I could do that and still contribute to our family’s finances. I made the decision to work from home.

But, where do I start? How can I replace my full-time income by working from home?

The answer: freelance writing for online businesses

In less than 6 months, I was able to fully replace my salary while still being able to take care of my twins during the day.

And I’m doing this part-time.

When I first started freelance writing, I made a ton of mistakes that cost me money and clients. I had no clue how to attract the RIGHT client, and I was frustrated with all the pitches I sent that didn’t land me any paid gigs.

I went from making barely enough to pay for a cup of coffee…

To making thousands of dollars per blog post (Yes! That’s $1200 for one blog post).

What changed?

I made a few tweaks and tried some new ideas. I knew I didn’t have time to constantly be seeking out new clients, so I made them come to me!

I developed a solid and successful strategy using the right tools, and everything changed. I couldn’t believe it!

From pennies to four figures and making a living from writing – without experience. Whoa!

You know what? This could easily be you.

What if you could….

Finally get paid for your writing. You don’t have to compete for jobs against hundreds of people and in the end, earn pennies for your hard work.

Learn the exact blueprint on setting up your freelance business and knowing the exact tools and strategies you need to attract clients, land clients and retain clients.

Know where to find high-paying clients. No more hustling ten hours a day and no more sending pitches that go straight to the trash and never see the light of day again.

Turn your passion for writing into a profitable and sustainable business. You’ll have the confidence, skills, and support you need to earn serious income as a freelance writer.

It’s possible because I’ve done it.

I built my freelance writing business part-time while staying home and taking care of my twins. I know it’s achievable.

Introducing Write Your Way to Your First $1k ™

A proven method to help new writers fast-track their way to success with freelance writing – no experience needed.

There are two ways to become a freelance writer

Do it alone. If you do it by yourself you’ll probably make a ton of mistakes – I did. Let me guess – you’ll probably waste time looking for jobs in the wrong places, stress over how to pitch and end up getting headaches over figuring out if you’re doing this right. After three months and no freelance writing job to show for it, you give up. Then you have a minor freak out.

Take a proven shortcut that sets you up for success. Write Your Way to Your First $1k is a step-by-step plan on becoming a profitable writer. You’ll get a framework to attract and find long-term clients.

You’re stuck at a job you hate.

You want something more but can’t connect the dots.

And you’re beyond frustrated that what you’ve been trying isn’t producing results. It’s just not working. No job, no income and all you get in return are a lack of confidence and realization that this is it. Just keep going to your day job and put your passion for writing on the shelf.
