The good news is, you are not alone. Almost every writer has fears and anxieties. But you can learn how to keep those fears from holding you back.
I’ve gone from $5 articles on oDesk and $50 for really long blog posts…to now I’ve just done the first post for a client at $65 an hour, about 4x my rate with past gigs. Although my portfolio secured me the gig, the tips I got from the Den helped me learn how to look for better clients and approach them. Ive already got another person interested in the same rate! -Joe Can Write, Freelance Blogger, Copywriter and Inbound Marketer
Knowledge is power, right? And nothing helps you beat your fears more than being prepared for scary situations. In this live webinar, you’ll learn actual fear-busters for all the common nerve-wracking writing situations you'll face as a freelance writer. We’ll tell you exactly what to do and say when you’re afraid to send queries, have an in-person meeting scheduled, need to interview a bigwig (yikes!), have to call an editor, run into an unsupportive friend—and more! You'll leave class with scripts you can follow to professionally resolve freelance challenges.
In this live webinar, you’ll get our practical exercises for taking action in spite of fears. While in Week 1 you learned tactics for handling specific freelance situations, week two will tackle more over-arching fears (and their symptoms): Fear of failure, fear of success, procrastination, perfectionism, and more.
LIVE hot-seat coaching with writing coach Marla Beck
Here’s where the rubber hits the road: Post your biggest freelancing fear in our Bootcamp forum, and we’ll choose a handful of students with common fear issues to be coached around their fear right on the call by writing coach Marla Beck of CoachMarla.com. Here’s where we really dig in and show you how to think like a coach to put your freelancing fears to rest...for good.
We’ll give you a list of 10+ challenges designed to help you conquer your writing fears.
Choose one challenge for each of the three weeks of the class and post your results in the forum. Complete three challenges by the end of class and you’ll get a free copy of Linda’s e-book A Fire Under Your Freelancing Ass: 30 Riffs from the Renegade Writer Blog to Help You Bust Your Excuses and Become a Motivated & Productive Freelance Writer.
I just took the Case Study Bootcamp, and am completing my first paid case study for a client next week. Based on Casey Hibbard’s input, I charged (and received) $1,000 for it. Plus I loved the work—interesting, interactive, and very doable. Thank you, Freelance Writers Den, for sharing the information I needed and giving me the confidence to reach out. —Alison Lueders
Your investment for the 3-week bootcamp experience, challenges, bonuses, and coaching is just $97.
We know, right? It’s nuts.

So jump on this offer today and say sayonara to the freelancing fears that keep you from earning real money from your writing!
