How to become a freelance writer

Thanks for stopping by!

I'm Gina.

Freelance writer and business coach.

You might be wondering who I am, or why the heck you should take advice from me, right? Don't worry, it's a fair question! ;)

Here's my story:

A couple of years ago, my husband and I were both working in the mining industry. I loved every minute of it. Except for the fact that mining is a boom-and-bust business.

Meaning that when the economy was good, so were the jobs and the money. But when it wasn't, layoffs were inevitable... and nobody's job was safe.

Talk about stressful times!

I realized how important it was to have a "back-up" plan. In case we got laid off, and in case money got tight. And good thing, too. Because shortly after I started writing, my husband did lose his job. We felt much better knowing I had extra money coming in from writing.

So how did I get started freelance writing? I stumbled upon a really interesting website: American Writers & Artists Inc. AWAI has tons of information about becoming a profitable freelance writer. Their main focus? Copywriting.

I decided to take a few of their courses. I was hooked. I was determined to learn everything I could about this exciting new opportunity. I soon found out that copywriting could be a very lucrative career.

I kept my day job, and viewed my writing business as a "side hustle." Initially, I planned on using the money to pay off my student loan debt. I wanted to cut back our expenses so that if money ever got tight, there'd be less debt to worry about.

Though I'm no longer working in the mining industry, I still have a 9-5 day job. And writing is still my side hustle.

But here's the best part about my writing business: I consistently make between $3k - $5k per month working less than 10 hours a week. That's what sets me apart from the other freelance writing coaches out there. I'm only doing this part time, and I make just as much money.

A lot of other coaches tailor their programs around people who apparently have all the time and money in the world to get their writing business started. That wasn't the case for me, and I'm guessing it isn't for you either.

I'll teach you how to build your writing business. But from the perspective of someone who maintains a full-time job in the 9-5 world.

Will I one day turn my writing business into my full-time day job? Perhaps. It's definitely an option. But there are a few things I'd like to accomplish first. More about that here.

So if you're looking for a coach, a mentor, or a friend in the freelance writing business... I'm here to help! I want you to experience the same freedoms and successes. Ready to get started? Let's do this!
