This may seem like a drastic change but it’s really not. I’ve been working with students and clients on their writing for 13 years. I reached a point this year when I realized that individualized coaching was not my long-term career goal. It’s not that I don’t enjoy working with clients. I have enjoyed it in so many ways and it’s been great to see my clients grow and improve their writing.
But while I’ve enjoyed working with writers one to one, I feel a change coming. I don’t just think about it in my head, I feel it in my bones. The time has come for me to expand. I want to teach and reach more people. Not ten to thirty people a year, but hundreds, thousands, millions of people a year.
That may sound crazy.
It may sound ambitious.
But goals that sound crazy or ambitious have never stopped me before, so why now?
For the rest of 2018, in addition to finishing my draft of SEVEN DUDES and getting it to my beta readers, I’m creating course content that I will teach both online and in live workshops. These courses will focus on helping busy people write more.
I’ll reveal more soon, but in the meantime, I’m looking for people who want to be on my BETA TEST TEAM. As a member of the team, you can take my online courses for free in exchange for feedback. Interested? Email me.
Again, I’m closing my writing coaching practice on October 30, 2017. If you’ve ever wanted to work with me one-to-one on your writing, don’t wait, make an appointment now.
In closing, I want to THANK all my clients from this year and past years. I learned something from each and every one of you. Coaching you helped me become the writer and teacher I am today. Thank you!
