 If you’re a freelance medical writer, I’ll bet you’ve felt like this before:

  • You’re sure that being in the medical writing space is for you because you know that this work is meaningful and has great income potential

  • You don’t want ‘expert advice’ but rather ‘I’ve been there before and here’s what works’ kind of guidance from down-to-earth people who can objectively see those blind spots in your business

  • You’re eager to be a part of a tight-knit community (and not just one of many thousands in some online group)

  • You want to connect with other folks who understand your struggles and can offer support, friendliness, and a kick in the pants when you need it

  • You’re dead set on making 2019 more awesome than 2018 and you’re finally ready to make an investment in yourself and your business to make it happen

YOU WANT TO TAKE THE NEXT STEPS AND YOU’RE READY TO TAKE ACTION

BUT YOU JUST NEED SOME STRUCTURED GUIDANCE

In this group coaching program, we’ll help you build custom action plans so that you can reach your freelance writing business goals faster than you ever thought possible.

HOW MANY TIMES HAVE YOU CAUGHT YOURSELF SAYING THINGS LIKE:

  • “I’m overwhelmed by the amount of advice out there. If I had a specific and targeted action plan for my business, I’d make steady progress.”

  • “I need some instant clarity. I’m ready to roll up my sleeves and do the work so that I can reach my goals faster.”

  • “I’m making a fresh start with my freelance writing career, and I just don’t know where to begin.”

  • “I’m hesitant to work with a marketing ‘expert’. I want to work with someone who has experience but is also down to earth and approachable.”

  • “I need to get off of the marketing treadmill. There has to be another way to find steady, ongoing clients and projects.”

It is possible to build a thriving freelance medical writing business, WITHOUT spending all of your time marketing and WITHOUT settling for low-paying gigs. WE’LL SHOW YOU HOW.

“As someone who is looking to get into medical writing, I was pretty overwhelmed with all the different avenues of medical writing and how to take the first steps in this career. Jennifer and Maria helped simplify this landscape for me, suggested the possible pathways based on my skill set and interests, and provided some action steps to get me started. Their advice was clear and not bundled in market speak.

Although they were realistic and pragmatic about choosing this career path they have made me feel that it is entirely possible for me to become a successful medical writer and it does not need to be an overwhelming career transition. I found both of them inspiring and encouraging and I will definitely look to getting more help and guidance from them as I embark on this new career.”

rocket fuel for your business

Here’s what you get:

  • A Guided Goals Exercise: This is where you’ll hash out what YOU really want to get out of the program and keep it front and center so that you know WHERE you are going.

  • Coaching: You’ll receive 2 coaches calls each month.

    • #1: A guided discussion with a Q & A session. This gives us the chance to talk about a specific challenge in freelancing and gives you the opportunity to ask specific questions about that topic.

    • #2: An open Q & A session featuring specific questions from participants. This is your chance to bring your specific questions and challenges to the group and allows us to provide some specific and direct feedback.

  • Recordings: Recorded coaching calls so you can refer back to them at any time.

  • Community: A private Slack community for advice, some accountability, and support from your peers.

    • Weekly prompts: Quick discussion points about the upcoming Q&A session.

    • Progress log: A simple way for you to check your goals at the beginning and end of each week.

  • Email support: On-demand support for those little hiccups that might make you feel stuck and our guidance to get unstuck quickly.

  • One 1:1 coaching call each month: A call to get you back on track if we’re in between coaching sessions and it just makes more sense to pick up the phone when you need to.

STILL UNDECIDED AND WONDERING IF GROUP COACHING IS FOR YOU?

We get it. This kind of coaching is an investment.

But...it’s an investment in yourself that is designed to help you get unstuck and make some real progress in your business.

For many of you, this might be the first time that you’ve ever thought about paying for group coaching (or any coaching for that matter). It’s perfectly natural to feel a little uncertain.

But doing this freelance thing on your own can be kind of scary and overwhelming when you try to do it alone. Trust us, we’ve been there. We’ve made the mistakes and learned our lessons. We’ve been in the trenches and fought our way out.

And now we’re on a mission to help you fast track through those bumps in the road that held us back.

So if you’ve read our blog, talked to us directly, or taken our course, we’re hoping that our message resonates with you.

Here’s what one of our students had to say:

“As an established freelance medical writer, I took Write and Prosper’s 4-week course on writing needs assessment to expand my areas of expertise into the field of CME (continuing medical education). What a wonderful investment in my professional development! The instructors, Jennifer Gregg and Maria Granovsky, present a curriculum that is clear, relevant, and intellectually challenging. By the end of the course, I felt confident in my ability to produce high-quality, persuasive needs assessments to meet and exceed my clients’ expectations.

Of equal importance, the weekly, live, interactive webinars create a vibrant learning environment enriched by Jennifer and Maria’s keen professional expertise, warmth, generosity, and dedication to mentoring medical writers seeking to grow professionally. I gained not only valuable professional skills in writing needs assessments, but also ongoing connections with colleagues who share my enthusiasm for and commitment to our meaningful work as medical writers!”

Have you ever thought back to a time and said to yourself, “Geez, I wish I knew then what I know now”? Yep, that’s me when I think back to when I started my freelance medical writing business. Lots of uncertainty and lots of self-doubt.

Trust me, I wasted a lot of time and energy on things that just simply didn’t matter.

But little by little, I figured things out. From both a business perspective and from a writing perspective. That’s why I’m here to help you cut through the clutter of what works and what doesn’t to build a profitable freelance business.

I’ve built a successful freelance medical writing business without ever spending a dollar on marketing. I still have 75% of the clients that I started with in the beginning, and I really believe that keeping those "sticky" clients is soooo much easier than finding new ones.

It's hard to leave the career you've been pursuing for a long time, where you've become an expert, and where the path is well-trodden and well-defined. It's even harder to embark on something as adventurous as freelance writing, isn't it?

If only someone had a roadmap and a formula for how to make sure that it all worked out...

Hi, I'm Maria, and I'm very familiar with this scenario. I've switched careers twice (once from genetics to law; then from law to freelance writing and consulting). Along the way, I learned a lot about marketing and business development, how to use LinkedIn and Twitter to build relationships and get clients, and how to write my way to a solid income.

Now, my clients think I'm "a wizard with words" and a "lifesaver." That’s why they come back. And as Jenn said - it’s soooo much easier to keep the clients you’ve got than to find new ones.
