How To Become a Full Time Writer From Scratch
Imagine being able to live wherever you want while earning a great living doing something you love.
From the beaches of the tropics to the bustling cafes of Europe, it is very possible to earn a full-time income writing for 15-20 hours a week.
I know, I've been doing it for over 5 years.
In this course I'm going to introduce you to the world of writing and I'll share with you my own experiences being a full time writer.
Over this time I have worked as a freelance copywriter, article writer, and author. I've done everything from print advertisements to sales letters to website copy.
I've also published 11 of my own books which now provide a significant passive income, and I've also built a loyal audience through writing my own blog and newsletter.
In fact, writing has funded the last 3 incredible years of my life during which time I've lived all over the world...
Including the tropical paradise of Costa Rica, and literary destinations like Italy, Barcelona, Prague and New York.
I was inspired to create this course after working with aspiring writers and discovering how little knowledge they often had about the industry.
Which might I add, is huge.
Writing is essentially communication...which in a way is, well, everything. So this creates a tremendous opportunity for income, as well as a tremendous opportunity for confusion and mistakes.
So where is the best place to start?
- Is it better to write books for yourself, or articles for companies?
- If you're tight on cash, what's the best route to get started so you can support yourself?
- What kind of clients are best to work with?
- Who pays the best?
- Who is the biggest pain in the ass?
There are all these different avenues to go down, all using essentially the same core skill: Your words.
The unfortunate thing, at least for those who haven't found this course, is there is huge gap between the different opportunities.
Some areas pay absolute garbage while offering little in the way of stability or satisfaction...
Whereas other kinds of writing work can be really fun and fulfilling, while paying upwards of a $100 dollars an hour.
Similarly, some kinds of work is great to start with an allows you to jumpstart your career at $40-60 an hour...but then you risk getting stuck there.
Whereas other areas are tough to get started, but once you do, the sky really is the limit in terms of income.
Once you join you'll learn about each area of writing as an income opportunity. You'll learn about the kind of work you can do and the kind of clients you'd be working with.
From here you'll be in a much better position to evaluate writing as a potential career for you, and, if you decide it is for you, you'll be in a great position to plan out your next 6-12 months.
You'll have the knowledge you need from the start to bypass many of the hurdles and challenges facing new writers, and save yourself from wasting time and money.
Once inside, here are some of the things you'll learn:
- You'll learn all the different kinds of work you can do as a writer, what kinds of companies you can work for, and what kind of money you can expect to earn. As I said earlier, there is a big difference in pay rates between different kinds of work, so this part is really important.
- You'll learn the basics of getting new clients and marketing. This course isn't focused on this area, but I'll teach you enough to get started and get your first 2-3 clients, and at least $1,000 in income so you can get a taste of what it feels like to write for a living.
- You'll learn about client management: The different ways you can be charging and how to bill. When should you charge by the word? The page? The hour? By the project?
- We'll take a look at ghostwriting. When is it better for a writer under the clients name, and when should you insist on writing under your own name?
- You'll find out what your day to day life could, and perhaps should, look like when we go through lifestyle aspect of writing in terms of productivity and staying focused. You'll learn the best way set up your days to be a productive and successful writer.
- I'll also share with you some of my own insights into what makes a successful writer. Why do some writers seem to breeze along making 6-figures while others are just barely scraping by? What is the real reason for this difference and how can you be the kind of writer that prospers?
There's a lot more, but I think by now you have a good idea of who I am and what this course is about.
By the end of this course you'll have a much better understanding of what life is like as a writer, and all the opportunities available to you today to begin your career as a writer.
By taking this course you'll avoid making painful beginner mistakes like:
- Charging too little money.
- Going through painful dry spells with no income.
- Working in the wrong area, or with the wrong kinds of clients.
- Doing work that kills your soul, when you could be getting paid better to do interesting work you actually enjoy!
By the end of this training you'll be well on your way to being a professional writer. You're going to understand the industry, the opportunities, and around how much you should charge prospective clients for different kinds of work.
You'll also know which areas are the most suited to your current situation, based on the income potential, income steadiness, and the ease in which you can get started.

I think you'll find this course really inspiring and encouraging. It is something I'm really passionate about, and I hope that comes through in the lessons.
Congratulations on taking the first step, and I look forward to seeing you inside.
