Coaching

As the Lucky Freelancer coach, I offer the Ultimate Book Workshop and two Seven-Week Intensives per year.

What is Lucky Freelancer Coaching all about?

Success is a choice! www.LuckyFreelancer.comIt’s about helping you create the satisfying professional life you really want.

Is it for writers and editors only?

No, it’s for writers, editors, entrepreneurs, and solo-professionals who want to transform an ordinary career into something extraordinary. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a literary or commercial writer, a dentist, or a real-estate agent– the same sound business practices apply to your career. In the 7-Week Intensive program, you’ll participate in 7 group training calls in order to learn the 7 Core Practices and how to apply them, then you’ll also have 7 personal coaching calls in which we’ll discuss your career or current project and get it moving in the direction you want to go.

Why work with a coach?

Do you ever wish you had someone to show you how freelancers–writers, editors, entrepreneurs, and solo-professionals– can really make a great living?

I know that I did. When I started out, I spent years working alone, reading constantly, and learning by trial and error. Going to workshops and conferences was good, but it wasn’t until I started working with a coach— someone who had already been where I wanted to go, and was clearly successful– that my business really took off.

I discovered that working with a coach could drastically shorten the learning curve, and make success happen much, much faster. I could have avoided some of the dead-ends I tried, and been zipping along the expressway to success much sooner if I’d known what an incredible short-cut it was to have a coach — someone who is there to teach, guide, point out the shortcuts, and hold up warning signs!

Perhaps your career is not moving as fast as you’d like. Or maybe you’d like to finally dump the day job and shoot for the independent career lifestyle you’ve always wanted. I believe that working independently, when done the Lucky Freelancer way, is the greatest career in the world, and I’d like to help you create the lifestyle career you really, truly want.

My coaching practice centers around the 7 Core Practices of the Lucky Freelancer (below). You can work with me through the twice a year  7-week Intensive program or the one-day Ultimate Book Workshop (I limit my coaching, because I’m a working writer and speaker, as well as the Director of the National Association of Independent Writers and Editors).  If you’re ready to move forward faster, I’d love to work with you.
