Video: 5 Steps To Starting Your Online Writing Career This Week! Freelance Writers Guide - Day Job Optional

HEY. Stop what you’re doing for a second. Stop spinning your wheels. Stop playing the guessing game about what to do next. Stop spending your days in a haze of “busy” without making headway on your writing goals.

I’m here to give you some good news. It’s NOT that hard to get an online writing career off the ground.

That’s right! And you heard it here first: Any elitist freelancer acting like they won some kind of lottery in order to be a successful freelance writer is taking you for a ride. You can do this, and I want you to have the exact steps to get your own career going for free, right now.

I made a quick video for the DJO writers community (which you should totally join), breaking down the most basic framework of launching an online writing career. To be honest, the video is rough, but I’ve got no shame. I shot it in one take and threw together some slides in order to publish it as soon as humanly possible.


Because I really wanted to get this info out to you guys! It’s golden. It’s stuff you can use right now, even if you’re just getting started.

Listen, I KNOW you have what it takes to get an online writing career off the ground. You just need someone to tell you where to start.

The internet is full of gurus and experts preaching contradicting information and claiming they have the answers. Why not take advice from someone who’s been doing this since 2009? (That’s me, sugar.)

The best part about this video is, it’s all action oriented. So if you’re feeling lost and aren’t sure where to start with getting your writing career up and running, watch it. Take notes. Then, go get to work. I’ll be in my inbox if you have any questions.

Ready to cut the crap and start getting your first paid writing gigs? Check out the video below…

See what I mean?

Simple, to the point. Packed with info and action steps. So, what are you waiting for? You have your homework, and you’re 100% capable of launching your own writing career this week.

If you need someone to believe in you, or permission to take a chance and DO this, I’m giving it to you now. Remember: Everyone has to start somewhere. Don’t get down on yourself because you’re feeling behind or you haven’t figured it out yet.

As my favorite online mentor Marie Forleo constantly reminds her followers, “Everything is figure-out-able.”

She also has a fantastic piece of advice about insight following action (not the other way around). You have to get your hands dirty to figure stuff out sometimes. Luckily, now you have a head start.

I believe in you! Go forth and launch that beautiful, location-free career.
