Imagine waking up on Mondays excited about the day ahead and the work on your plate — and making a darn good living doing what you love, whenever, wherever, and however you feel like it.
No boss, no inflexible schedule, no commute, and no working with jerks. Also, no waiting for someone else to give you a raise or promotion, because you can do that for yourself, whenever you feel like it.
For 14 years I sat in a cramped cubicle, buried in spreadsheets, office politics, and corporate bureaucracy, with little time for the work I loved most: writing.
My days were ruled by tasks that left me drained and I’d go days without quality time with my daughters. By February, I’d already blown through most of my vacation days attending to my ailing parents.
Fed up, I gave myself a six-month deadline to ditch my job and build the life I wanted — one that allowed me to make good money on my own terms and schedule.
When the deadline came, I fired my boss. In another five months, I surpassed my previous corporate salary by 20% writing just 20 hours/week.
By the end of that first year, I was turning prospects away and cherry-picking my favorite and most profitable customers.
Talking with other freelancers, I soon realized this wasn’t common. While other writers complained about long dry spells and difficulty securing high-paying gigs, I struggled to keep up with demand despite charging higher rates.
Then it dawned on me: In my past career, I'd been the one hiring writers for marketing content. I knew how prospects thought, because I'd been one of them. Knowing what they craved, what made them drool, and what they couldn't stand made selling a breeze.
Before long, I began mentoring fellow writers, sharing tactics I’d used to attract a steady stream of business with zero hype or high-pressure sales. And that's how this program came to be.
My goal is to help you replicate those outcomes in your own business — minus the mistakes I’ve made along the way.
When you go it alone, you don't get the benefit of learning from people who've been where you want to go, and solved the very problems you're grappling with now.
Conflicting advice coming at you from every direction can derail your business, and leave you feeling drained and discouraged.
When you don't know what terms to enforce or red flags to watch for, you end up attracting divas and cheapskates — clients who are hard to please, and who try to haggle at every turn.
Without peers to cheer you on, gently call you out, redirect and hold you accountable, you end up tripping over blind spots and bad habits, and not progressing as quickly as you should.
Put simply, Fast Forward Freelancing is an intimate, membership community where you'll receive loads of peer support and expert mentoring.

Worksheets, templates, scripts, cheat sheets, and step-by-step guidance so you'll look like a pro from the start.
Value-packed yet concise guidance, with members-only training and tools added on a regular schedule.

You'll also drive much of the training content, which will be tailored to your needs and input.
Finally, you'll lock in a low rate, well below standard member pricing, for as long as you remain a member.
Personal, confidential mentoring in our 30-minute kickoff call. Schedule this whenever you want — right when you join, or after you've consumed some of the training in our community.
A complimentary assessment of your choice: your website, sales pitch, positioning, your first client project... whatever you want to refine.
30 days after our kick-off call, we'll get together for a follow-up consultation to ensure you're on the right track, and confident about next steps.
I won't "ShamWow" you into subscribing if we're not a good fit.
That would be a painful experience for both of us, and I want none of it.
You'll benefit from the Fast Forward Freelancing community if...
I won't teach you how to write, or how to improve your writing. Rather, I'll teach you how to turn your writing skills into a profitable business. To that end, we'll focus on systems, tactics, and tools for attracting, converting, managing, and retaining clients.
You're all in and prepared to work. A high-demand, high-income freelance business takes hard work. If you're not willing to grind it out and consistently apply the know-how you're receiving, this will not work for you.
