"Having a writing career was always one of my dreams, I just wasn't sure how to make it happen. Nikki's freelance course was the puzzle piece I was missing. It was life-changing. Having access to the knowledge of a true media pro like Nikki was invaluable in making my writing career a reality. I now write and edit for a living full time." — Alicia Palma-Espinoza
So you’ve been doing this blog thing for some time, and you’ve completely fallen in love — with the creativity, the freedom, and most surprisingly the writing.
That’s because you are a writer. You’re surprised, aren’t you? And a little embarrassed, too.
YES, you can switch careers and make an income from writing.
YES, you can start from where you are — no fancy degree needed. All that is needed is the burning desire, faith in yourself, and some industry knowledge.
I was in your shoes just a few years ago. I hated my job and secretly dreamed of becoming a writer — yet, I had no idea how to make that happen. Plus, I really didn’t want to go back to school and set myself back a few years.
And then I met some writers. Real, working writers. Over dinner, they shared a few industry secrets with me that changed my life. It was enough to get me started. Armed with some much-needed knowledge and some serious perseverance, I embarked on my new life as a writer.
Before I knew it, writing was my full-time job. Since them, I’ve held editor positions with MSN, NBC, Refinery29 and others. Plus, I’ve written for Town & Country, Huffington Post, Allure, Zagat, and DailyWorth, just to name a few.
"Even though I have a university degree in writing, Nikki's course is what actually taught me how to make money as a freelance writer. Nikki genuinely wants you to succeed, so she generously shares her years of media experience in an easy-to-understand way that makes accomplishing your goal of being a writer seem attainable. Because of her training, I'm now living the dream freelance writing full-time, while traveling." —Nicky Valdez
