Carol Tice's small-group mastermind with 1-on-1 coaching―for new freelance writers
Join the waiting list to get an early chance to grab a seat in the next Launchpad!
Today’s freelance marketplace can be confusing. And the internet is rife with low-pay gigs and outright scams.
New freelancers often don't know what to avoid and what to focus on to make this happen quickly. Then, you run out of money and have to crawl back to that day job you hate.
You get individualized coaching—based on my decade of helping writers build their freelance careers—to help you formulate a customized, actionable plan to find your best starter clients and get rolling.
Before I founded Freelance Writers Den in 2011, I ran informal masterminds for freelance writers I was coaching. Many of those writers went on to thriving freelance careers, leaving stressful day jobs as teachers, accountants, lawyers, financial advisers, and more behind.
In 2016, I formalized the curriculum of this program into the New Freelance Writers Launchpad. This is the only program in which I work 1-on-1 with newbie freelance writers. Aspiring freelance writers often ask me if I could coach them – well now, the answer is yes!
Hi — I’m Carol Tice, a six-figure freelance writer and author of the award-winning Make a Living Writing blog. I’m proud of the track record I’ve built coaching other writers on how to earn more.
I’ve been a freelance writer for 18 years, and have earned a full-time living from writing since 1995. I cracked six figures in 2011, in the middle of the recession. My freelance clients have included Costco, American Express, Lending Tree, Alaska Airlines Magazine, Delta Sky, Forbes, Entrepreneur, Nation’s Restaurant News, Seattle Magazine, and many more. I live in Seattle with 2 teens, rescue-dog Rex and the man who's put up with me for 30 years.
MONTH 1: Find your niche and best opportunities.
With your coach's help, you'll find your best niches and craft a game plan for where to focus your energy. No more running in circles! Month-end, I'll also review students' writer websites and Linkedn profiles, to get yours set to attract the clients you want.
MONTH 2: Get first clips and build your portfolio.
Learn how to get easy first assignments you can totally win at—and how to put your portfolio together quickly. Discover the best ways newbies can pitch—and land—good first clients. A mastermind highlight: I'll screenshare and show you exactly how to find lists of good prospects in your niche!
MONTH 3: Build your writing and negotiating skills.
Learn the fundamentals of negotiating good rates, closing sales, and managing client relationships. This month's highlight: Submit a piece of writing and I'll critique it and show you how to impress clients with your craft.
Over time, I've learned 1-on-1 mentoring isn't effective by itself. Gurus charge thousands for just a few hours' time, and many students don’t see big results. I hate that!
With 1-on-1, your mentor is at a different career stage than you are. Their earnings seem unachievable. And it’s lonely, trying to ramp your business all by yourself.
That’s why the New Freelance Writers Launchpad gives you 1-on-1 coaching with small-group peer support and advanced training. This is my proven formula for launching a profitable freelance writing business.
AND, instead of charging you $10,000-$25,000 like most masterminds require (up front!), this program is priced much more affordably. One good assignment from one new client pays for the whole program!
Admission to the New Freelance Writer's Launchpad is by application only—because I want to make sure everyone in the group is a good fit for this program.
The Launchpad can help you if:
NOT SURE? Apply now, and we can hop on a free, no-obligation 20-minute 1-on-1 'Launch Tip' coaching session on how to meet your top challenge.
Imagine the lifestyle you’d lead if you were a freelance writer, earning enough to pay all your bills doing what you truly love. No, really—take a minute, close your eyes, and envision it. Do you need to be launched and earning as a freelance writer within a few months? If so, let's make it happen.
"I feel confident my LaunchPad program will help you take action and launch as a freelance writer, because of the hundreds of writers I've seen use my Step by Step Guide materials to start their careers. Still not launched at the end of this program? If you participate fully in this program and don't see results, I’ll give you a year of FREE access to Freelance Writers Den, so you can continue to work with me and get the resources you need."--Carol
