Fancy yourself as a paid writer?

Hey Reader,

You might remember the story about my assistant Lou. A lady called Lisa reached out to see if she could work with her.

Well, this is only half the story.

Lisa also asked if I could take her on as a new client:

The problem?

I wasn't taking on new clients.

My hands were too full.

But rather than fritter the lead away (like I usually do), I thought back to my conversation with Sara.

Sara took part in one of my 30-Day Writing Challenges and made it clear she's looking for new clients.

She was even willing to pay me to send clients her way.

*Lightbulb goes PING in my head*

So I checked with Lisa if she'd be happy to work with someone I recommend:

"I would be happy to talk to Sara."

Now I just had to check that Sara was game!

So I opened my email and fired her a message:

Would you like me to make an intro?

I made the intro, Lisa and Sara started working together, and I'll receive a 10% cut of the project fee when the work is complete.

Everyone wins! :)

Alright, alright - where am I going with this?

I typically receive 3-5 inbound PAID opportunities a month, and I can't take them all on.

I'm basically sitting on a goldmine.

And I want to give you an opportunity to tap into it.

So, if you're a writer who's:

  • Built a written portfolio of more than 20 pieces of long-form content
  • Invested in your writing skills
  • Looking for paid work (where YOU set the rate)

Get in touch!

If you meet the criteria above, I will:

  1. Add you to a database
  2. Email you when opportunities arise (if I think you're a good fit)
  3. Opportunities will be given on a first-come, first-served basis (i.e. whoever's quickest to respond)

In return, I'll ask for 10% of the cost of the first project (e.g. if you bill the client $1K, I'll take $100.)

But after the first project with the client, I won't take anything else.

So that's the deal :)


Fill out this Google Form and I'll take a look at your application.

But be quick! I'll be closing the form this Sunday.

I hope to hear from you!

Read time: 4 minutes Hey Reader, Do you know what time it is? It's SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT TIME! 🥳️ Let me tease you with a little background first... I recently emailed writers about their goals. I wanted to figure out how I could help them. (And - by proxy - how I could help YOU ✌️) Questions included: Do you want to replace your full-time income in the next 6 months through writing? Have you ever considered full-time writing before? If so, what stopped you? I'll quickly summarise the...

Read time: 3 minutes Hey Reader, If there's one thing I've learned over the last 6 years, it's this: Friendships matter. 90% of opportunities come to me through people I already know. But here's something you might not have considered: How do you meaningfully add fuel to your friendships so they continue to burn brightly? It's easier than you think. Let me show you. You might have met Lou before Lou worked as my virtual assistant (VA) from April 2020 to Jan 2022. She easily saved me 10+ hours...
