What freelance writers say about working with me

It was very generous of you to make suggestions about specific publications I could pitch to and give me contacts. I would definitely recommend your coaching to other freelance writers, whether they are just starting out or already established freelancers wanting to do more.

Amy Fallon, freelance writer

I followed Lindy’s advice and by the following week, I had a commission for $4000.That was just incredible to me. By the end of the month, I had tripled my income from that lousy month.

Jessica Mudditt, freelance writer

Thanks to your suggestion of being more proactive and using LinkedIn, I landed some copywriting for a big start-up. You also helped me think outside of the box when it comes to avenues for finding these types of clients.

Emma Norris, freelance writer

Making the decision to do two mentoring sessions with Lindy was one of my best decisions this year. Lindy gave me some great insight on how to improve my pitches, how to make them relevant and get editors' attention. I also got my first travel article commission after taking her advice!
