DISCOVER HOW TO START A FREELANCE WRITING BUSINESS AND GET PAID TO WRITE ONLINE ABOUT TOPICS YOU'RE WILDLY PASSIONATE ABOUT WITHOUT BEING AN EXPERT WRITER

...Are you finally ready to learn how to start a thriving freelance writing business?!

If you're looking to break into freelance writing and make money from your passion, you're in the right place.

Which of these apply to you?

 

You're a struggling blogger working 12 to 18-hour days with hardly anyone reading your blog (or making any money). You're doing everything you possibly can to make this blogging thing work. You blog all the time, promote endlessly on social media, try to figure out SEO, and think about blogging nonstop.

You're a writer but don't have any confidence and having a hard time getting high-paying clients. You love writing. You're always thinking about writing and sharing your experiences and gifts with the world. But no one is reading your blog, your Medium posts don't get many claps, and you're feeling tired of creating epic content no one reads (or pays you for). 

You're trying to make freelance writing work but can't seem to figure out how to grow your monthly revenue. You're overwhelmed but you read and subscribe to every blog and newsletter you can to figure how to go from a few hundred bucks per month to earning thousands as a writer. But nothing seems to work.

You're in a 9-5 but suffering major imposter syndrome and don't know how to make money writing online. You want the freedom of entrepreneurship but aren't sure how to turn your passion for writing into real money online so you never get started in the first place.

Freelance content writing is the fastest way to turn your love of writing into a REAL online business that gives you FREEDOM and FLEXIBILITY!

Let's face it, getting paid to write is tough.

And today, with all the different ways to make money writing, it's easy to jump from one platform to the next constantly looking for answers.

And if you're like most writers, then you probably feel frustrated, exhausted... always trying to figure out when will I finally make money as a writer, right?

Most people think that to make more money writing, you have to run your own blog or publish endlessly on Medium.com and build an audience.

But the truth is, the fastest way to make money writing is as a freelance writer.


"The course is full of great information and can help anyone learn, even if you're a beginner like I was."

"Michael's course taught me the skills needed to kick-start my writing career. The course is full of great information and can help anyone learn, even if you're a beginner like I was.

My writing has improved since taking the course, and has pushed me to become a better writer. My Medium posts are doing better than ever before, I'm getting curated more often and my reads are going up ever day. Michael has been really supportive and kind throughout the process.

 I highly recommend you try out his course - you won't be disappointed!"

Freelance to 5K isn't a normal freelance writing course like a lot of others you might have taken...

...It's a 6-module transformational experience that will change you...from an overwhelmed, discouraged, and frustrated writer to a confident, successful writer.

 

Developed for writers who want to make $5K+ a month writing!

  • Discover how to program your mind to find success as a writer.
  • Learn how start or scale your own freelance writing business (even if you're brand new).
  • Build a system to help you beat overwhelm, take action, and build your confidence.
  • Understand the best way to find a profitable niche and finally get paid good money to write online.

Each module contains short videos and exercises specifically created to move you forward in your transformation. And also provides checklists to help you publish better content and impress all your new clients.

Freelance writing is the fastest way to make money online:

The fact is, freelance writing is needed in today's world now more than ever!

Why?

Because businesses understand the importance of having content that speaks to their audience.

But as you probably know, not every business owner is also a good writer.

That's where your passion and writing skills come in.

Not to mention, there are nearly endless blogs and websites that are constantly hiring new writers.

How do I know?

Because I've been successfully freelance writing since the end of 2017.

In fact, in 12 months I was able to 10X my monthly writing income while only working part-time.

 

I went from $650/month to $6,500/month working 15-20 hours per week.

And in 2019, I doubled my annual writing income and made $20,050 in 30 days!

But when I first started freelance writing, I had so much anxiety and doubt that it could actually work.

I remember thinking to myself…
Is Upwork a scam?

How much money can I make writing?

Do people actually pay freelance writers?

Are job boards really as awful as people say?

Where do I land my first freelance writing gig?

How do I build a portfolio and actually pitch clients?

Do I need to advertise or post a lot of content on social media?

And about 100 other questions that you've probably also had.

The information seemed to be endless and most of it was very outdated and irrelevant.

But I was determined to make this work... it was now or never.

After thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours spent learning about writing, I "kind of" knew what I was doing.

But I still wasn’t doing it yet. I literally had bills to pay but couldn’t get myself to take action.

I was so terrified of rejection from clients and started doubting myself as a writer.

Finally, I got off the sidelines and got in the game.

Once I landed my first paying client from cold pitching, I realized it was possible.

Even if it was just a few hundred dollars, it helped me get over the fears and build my confidence.

Landing one gig helped me eliminate a few limiting beliefs that were holding me back.

I figured, if I can get one person to say yes, why couldn’t I get a second, third, or fourth client?

Each month, my revenue continued to grow, almost like clock work...month after month.

I kept finding new ways to land clients, what to say in pitches, and how to raise my rates.

Eventually, clients even started reaching out to me with my freelance writing website and optimized social media profiles.

That's when I realized, freelance writing is the best way to make money as a writer.

With freelance writing, you can do it as a part-time side hustle or a full-time online business.

Not to mention, you have freedom and flexibility with your schedule.

Since finding my stride as a freelancer writer, I’ve been able to:

Triple my rates

Get featured in huge publications

Ghostwritten for millionaires and best-selling authors

Started a top-rated podcast on iTunes interviewing multi-millionaire entrepreneurs

Plus, I'm the top writer at Fearless Motivation, have created viral content read by millions.

I’ve also been featured in, Lifehack, Rockstar Finance, Better Marketing, Entrepreneurs Handbook, Early to Rise, Goalcast, and other top publications.

Mike’s freelance writing course took me from not even thinking about freelance writing to creating a website and landing my first recurring gig in only six weeks."

Mike’s freelance writing course took me from not even thinking about freelance writing to creating a website and landing my first recurring gig in only six weeks. The course lessons are clear and presented in organized modules that are focused and specific to the topic.

 

Mike has made himself available for questions in his course Facebook group and we also did some one-on-one coaching that motivated me to pitch for more work. I love his encouraging approach. I highly recommend this course and his coaching services to anyone who is considering freelance writing as a career or side hustle. It is some of the best money I have spent."

Got Questions? We got answers...

Below is a list of the most common questions I've been asked. If for some odd reason you don't see your question, just reach out to our team. Please email us at [email protected] and ask away. Thanks!

 

#1. What makes you and other Freelance to 5K so successful?

Freelance to 5K was specifically created with the beginner writer in mind. But this program is different from anything you've ever taken for three distinct reasons:

1. MINDSET: I've paid for a ton of different online writing courses and all of them lacked one thing - understanding the inner game. Whenever you start a new venture in life, having the right mindset is the only way you can achieve it. I won't just tell you what to do, I'll help you train your mind to overcome roadblocks that most new writers never learn to overcome.

2. CLIENT STRATEGY: Inside Freelance to 5K, I teach you more than five different ways to land freelance writing clients. Because here's the thing, there is one way to do this as other coaches teach. Instead, I'll show you ways to diversify your pitching methods so you always have ways to land new clients.

3. STEP-BY-STEP PLAN: This program can help whether you want to earn $500 per month as a side hustle or $5,000 or more per month and take it full-time. This is a fully customizable plan that you can create to fit your goals. Plus, I'll also teach you tons of other ways to make money from writing about your passion other than just freelancing.

#2. Is Freelance to 5K worth the investment?

The content inside this program will give you everything you need to start your own writing business. Since I started freelancing in January 2018, I’ve earned $100,000+ writing.
 
Not to mention, I only spend about 20 hours a week with my writing business. Think about the incredible return that you can get from this small investment.
 

#3. If I am just getting started and I don't have a business yet, is this still a good fit for me?

Freelance to $5K was built to help brand new and beginner-intermediate freelance writers. Whether you've never written a post before or already have a few clients, this program will give you everything you need.

If you're already making $5,000+ per month in recurring freelance writing income, this course isn't the right fit.

#4. This sounds overwhelming, how much time will it take to complete?

If this program feels like a lot, it might just be because you're overwhelmed already in your business. And you're probably trying to figure out how to add this to your ever growing list of to-do's. But Freelance to 5K is the answer to your overwhelm. When you enroll, you can finally say goodbye to those feelings of overwhelm and worry.

This program is a step-by-step guide to help you focus on what you need to do so you can reach your freelancing goals. It was designed for you to learn and implement. You don't have to wait until you go through each lesson before taking action.

Don't forget, when you enroll in Freelance to 5K, you get lifetime access.

 After enrolling, you get unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own. This means you can log in anywhere there is a Wi-Fi connection. So if you can commit a few hours per week for these training, you can see an entirely new level of growth in your business.

#5. What’s the difference between Freelance to 5K vs. Freelance to 5K Accelerator programs?

The Freelance to 5K Accelerator program is Freelance to 5K on steroids. When you enroll, not only do you get instant and lifetime access to the 6 modules and bonus trainings, but you also get to work 1:1 with me.
 
That means six 1:1 zoom calls, weekly emails, and messaging via WhatsApp. As your writing coach, I will help you get motivated, stay accountable, and reach your freelance goals.
 

#6. I struggle with confidence and imposter syndrome as a writer, will this help?

You and me both. If you have a desire to share your word with the world, I can help you overcome them and FINALLY take action on your dreams. I'll help you overcome fear, worry, perfectionism or criticism.
 

#7. Are there different pricing options?

Yes, there are several pricing options. We want to make sure you're able to get enrolled and not let a temporary money situation hold you back. Learn about each option below.
 

#8. I'm not very tech-savvy. Do I need to be tech-savvy for this to work?

No! If you can send emails and write words online, you can make this work. Inside Freelance to 5K there is a tutorial to help you learn how to cheaply outsource anything you can't figure out as well.

The tech stuff doesn't have to hold you back from making money as a writer.

 

#9. Do I need to know my niche before starting this program?

Nope, inside Freelance to 5K there are several resources to help you learn how to pick a profitable writing niche. Plus, you can always start as a generalist to launch your writing career and niche down as you go through the program.

 

#10. What can I expect once I enroll in Freelance to 5K?

When you enroll, you will get a confirmation email explaining how to log into the program. Upon logging in, you will also get FREE and LIFETIME access to any and all updates. That means you'll never have to pay for any future updates (even when the price increases).

Freelance to 5K is an online training portal that you can access on all your devices. When you join, you get instant access and go through it at your own pace and revisit any specific lessons.

#11. Is there any support available if I have any questions or get stuck?

Abso-freaking-lutley! The last thing I want you to feel is nagging uncertainty of what to do next. That's why we have our private (Members-Only) Facebook group. Inside this community you can ask questions and get feedback quickly so you can take action and hit your goals!

 

#12. What is the guarantee/refund policy with Freelance to 5K?

We would never want you to be unhappy and think you will love the experience! But, if you are unsatisfied with your purchase, please contact us in the first 60 days of your initial purchase date.

Show us you did the work (like pitching clients, applying for gigs, etc.) and we will give you a full refund. To do so, email our team: [email protected] and let us know.

There is no refund for the Freelance to 5K Accelerator as it is a customized 1:1 coaching program that requires my time each week.
