You Write, They Pay: How to Build a Thriving Writing Business from NOTHING

Sick of Being Told When You Can Take a Bathroom Break?

Is your day job bringing you down? Do you wish you could join the ranks of freelance writers but just don’t believe it’s possible? Maybe you’re retired but you hate the idea of being a Wal-Mart greeter. Maybe you’re a stay at home mom who wants to make some cash while the kids are at school. Or maybe you’ve just always had a knack for writing and wonder if you could do it for a living. If you’ve ever dreamed of starting a career as a freelance writer, there’s no better time than now. But how do you start? Isn’t it scary to take that leap?

Can You Really Make Money as a Writer?

The short answer is yes. But where do you find clients? Do you have to have a niche? What is it really going to take to make this new career path work? You could take the hard road and figure things out along the way, wasting a lot of time in the process while you scramble to get all your ducks in a row. Or you could hire a coach so you know exactly what to do to start your writing career on the right foot… but only if you have thousands of dollars to spend. Is there a third option that saves you time and money in your quest to write for a living?
