Need some writing inspiration during the holidays?

It’s a crazy time of year for a lot of freelance writers.

You’re hustling to work ahead. You’re thinking about how to move up and earn more in 2020. Maybe you’re feeling a little worn out since the holiday march began last month.

Sound familiar? How about a little writing inspiration to give you a boost during the holidays?

Believe it or not, you can still connect with clients and prospects during the holidays, land assignments, get paid well, and enjoy your work.

It happens all the time.

Right now, while most of us are celebrating, some editor is stressing about hiring a freelancer for a story assignment or project. The editor stumbles across a pitch or letter of introduction you sent, and voilà, you just scored a new client and assignment.

VIDEO: The $20K Quarter (Secrets of Successful Freelance Writers)

The Secret Lives of Successful Freelance Writers. Makealivingwriting.com

Ever wish you could be a fly on the wall at the home of some successful freelance writers, and figure out what they do to earn more?

Well, now you can.

You see, I am that fly — I spend a lot of time talking on Zoom to high-earning freelance writers in my Freelance Writers Den 2X Income Accelerator. That’s my 6-month mastermind program for doubling your income.

With the permission of a few of my coaching grads, I’ve put together a 20-minute video where you can eavesdrop on writers who earn $80,000 a year — and writers who’re scheming on how to get there.

The raw reality of high-earning writers

Warning: This is raw, unvarnished reality video here. We’re all in our living rooms wearing whatever, with kids and dogs and what-all going on behind us! Also, the video jumps around a bit, as I’m blocking out writers who aren’t interviewed in this video, to respect their privacy.

Listen in as I give the writers some on-the-fly coaching on how to earn even more. They also brainstorm with their group on how to up their game, too.

If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to get mastermind and coaching support, this video shows you what a powerful shortcut to success a mastermind can be. Enjoy!
