Ed Gandia, co-author of the bestselling book, The Wealthy Freelancer, reveals how to propel your writing business to the six-figure level (or the part-time equivalent).

He'll also show you what’s working for other business writers by bringing you real case studies from the field. And he'll share all this information in an honest and transparent way, with no hype or fluff. Topics covered include: getting better and higher-paying clients; banishing the feast-or-famine cycle; doing more of the work that excites you; how to raise your fees and rates; boosting your productivity; making your business recession-proof; discovering and leveraging your strengths; finding your niche; pricing content writing projects; pricing copywriting projects; writing white papers; writing case studies; writing web copy; writing articles; and much more.

Ed Gandia podcast defense fund?
So I'm catching up on your pod on the 2-hour drive home to Portland from Boston last night.
While enjoying the heck out of Ep 221, your chat with Kelly Glover, I look down to see I'm going WELL ABOVE the speed limit of 70 mph. I immediately swing into the far-right lane and bring it down to Warp 2. ... No troopers. No tickets. This time.
If you're going to put out such engrossing content, my friend, you really ought to set up a fund to help listeners manage the consequences. It's only fair, right? 😉
Looking forward to more great stuff.
