Use your blogging skills to start
making money right away!
Freelance writing provides the ultimate in freedom. It means being able to pick up your kids from school or meet a friend for lunch on a Tuesday afternoon.
If you've been blogging for a while but your blog isn't earning enough to live on, freelancing can supplement your income while you work to grow your site.
You don't have to wait to start making money blogging.
You can get started right now, and it doesn't have to be "side income". Lots of writers are supporting their families and writing full time while still growing their own sites. You can too!
You can use the connections you've made as a blogger to find clients quickly, and your blog is the perfect place to show off your work.
Freelance writing is a secure and stable income.
Freelancing might sound risky but it can actually be more secure than a regular job. With freelance writing, you income is diversified over many clients. Losing one client doesn't bring your income to zero like losing a job does.
Plus, the beauty of freelance writing is that clients are often long term -- so you aren't out pitching and hustling always trying to find your next dollar. Once you fill your schedule you can relax and only take new clients when it suits you.
What if you could take the skills you already have and start earning money in a way that gives your more freedom and control over your life?
Freelance writing can do exactly that.

Hi, I'm Ashley Barnett
I started blogging in 2005 with a "mom blog" but stumbled upon a personal finance blog in 2008 that changed my life. That's when I really fell in love with blogging.
I started freelancing for large personal finance blogs in 2013.
Freelancing has given me the freedom to live my life and grow my income on my own terms. I love that I can choose the jobs I want and the clients I want to work with.
Hi, I'm Clint Proctor
I started my blog, the Wallet Wise Guy, in May 2018. A few months after launching my site, I was able to use the blogging skills I had learned to land my first freelance writing gig.
Within 7 months, I was able to quit my job to become a full-time freelance writer. And, within a year, I was earning $10k+ per month in freelance writing income alone.
Freelancing has given me the ability to earn a living today through my writing while still having the freedom to invest in my own blog and continue to monetize its content.

This course is intended for those who want to make money blogging but aren't meeting their income goals with their site yet.
What if I don't feel like I have "blogging skills"?
