What if in the next 30 DAYS you could start a successful freelance writing business from scratch?
Using a skill you already have and a bit of sweat equity.
In early 2014, I (Gina Horkey) didn’t even know that getting paid to write online was a thing. In fact, when I pictured professional writers, novelists and technical writers were the only types that came to mind.
I didn’t understand that people just like you and me were getting paid hundreds of dollars to write blog posts or sales copy for websites. Suffice it to say, at that time content marketing was NOT a word in my vocabulary…
(Don’t know what content marketing means? It’s basically using written content, like blog posts, case studies, white papers, email newsletter, ebooks, and sales copy to connect with a target market to offer solutions to their problems in the form of products and services. )
Without having to go back to school to get a journalism degree? Heck yeah, sign me up!
I LOVED writing and was desperate for a career change, but as the breadwinner of our young family of four I was a bit leery. Could this new-fangled online business schtick really work for me?
Could it really replace my cushy and dependable salary in personal finance?
The only way I could find out was to give it a shot.
So I did.
- I started my business in May of 2014, secured my first client (and paycheck) within a month and hustled to keep building it from there.
- Within six months I was earning $4,000 per month on the side of my full-time job – with a baby and toddler in tow.
- And within eight months of looking into this freelance writing thing, I had quit my job and left the 9-5 behind!
Was it scary? Heck yes!
But that’s why I started my business as a side hustle first to validate the concept. And that’s what I’d recommend that you do as well.
Or maybe you’re just looking to pull in a little extra income into your household. That’s cool, this course will work for you too!
“In Gina’s course you will learn everything from choosing the right freelance niche to finding clients – including the details necessary to pitch yourself effectively. This course is ideal for people who want to learn how to start freelance writing, but have no idea what steps to take to begin.”
In fact, YOU get to:
Sure, you’ll still see billboards on the freeway, hear ads and endorsements on the radio, but this little platform we call the internet has opened up a whole new world when it comes to businesses connecting with their ideal customers.
And it works.
Whatever their reason, they need help.
And in the next 30 days, I can teach you step-by-step how to use those sweet writing skills of yours (that will get even better with practice) to help these businesses achieve their goals.
In the process, you can achieve your own.

Sure! There are tons of students living outside the U.S. who have built successful careers after taking 30 Days or Less to Freelance Writing Success. That’s the beauty of virtual work!
One thing to keep in mind though, is that if you want to work with English-speaking clients, you should have a sufficient handle on writing, reading and speaking English too.
It really depends on you, your schedule and your work ethic.
Some students have made their way through the course in a weekend, while for others it takes a few months. The course is self-paced, with all of the material being available to you immediately upon enrollment, so it’s really up to you!
You sure can!
I get emails each week from new students sharing their success and how they just landed their first paying gig. It makes me smile every time!
But success doesn’t come without effort…
In addition to reading the material, you’ll need to complete the action steps (each lesson includes at least one).
And while it may seem scary at first, putting yourself out there and asking to be hired via pitching (the freelance writing term for prospecting) is what’s going to get you there! You got this!
