Copywriting’s a tough gig. I know, I’ve been doing it since 2002
And it’s especially tough if you’re a freelancer. Managing clients, juggling projects, wrangling your IT, setting up tools and processes to help you work efficiently, overcoming procrastination, dealing with isolation and self-doubt, marketing yourself, invoicing, chasing payment…
It’s all stuff you have to do, day-in and day-out, when you’re a freelance copywriter. And none of it’s what you signed up for. Right?
Trust me, I struggled with the very same things. But after a decade or so, I got the hang of it. Got really good at it, actually.
But now, looking back, I wish I’d had someone to help me. Sure, I had a pseudo-biz coach (my father-in-law). But he’d run big businesses, so his perspective was really different. And he’s also a bit old-school. (Shhh.)
What I really could have used was someone who knew exactly what I was going through:
- Why I had to work through part of my wife’s first labour
- Why it was gut-wrenching when a client didn’t like my writing
- Why every new job was terrifying
- Why marketing myself felt like bragging
- Why I felt like apologising every time I sent an invoice or raised my prices
- Why every so-called small-business tool cost just a little too much, and did only part of what I wanted it to do
Even if it was just a phone call, every couple of months.
No cigar. Unfortunately I had no help with any of this, and I paid the price for many years. But you don’t have to…
Get copywriter coaching from someone who’s overcome the very same challenges you’re facing right now
After more than a decade-and-a-half of freelance copywriting, I’ve butted my head up against just about every problem out there. And I’ve tried just about every ‘solution’ to those problems. So if you’re struggling with something, chances are, I’ve struggled with it too. More importantly, chances are I’ve overcome it – or I wouldn’t still be in business.
Just tell me what you need help with…
- Advice on pricing?
- Writing guidance?
- Help writing that big client job you just can’t get right? (Collaborative copywriting is fun!)
- Managing a difficult client?
- Hands-on help setting up a project management tool that works for a freelance copywriter?
- SEO tips?
- Just a sounding board?
Whatever it is, I’d be happy to help.

“Whenever Glenn critiques my copy, he’s extremely thorough. He leaves no stone (word/comma/exclamation mark) unturned. While this might seem a bit daunting at first, it’s actually the best! Glenn shows me exactly how my copy can be improved and why. And he’s a really nice human, so even when your copy sucks, you’ll still feel good about yourself. Glenn helps me get better at writing… which is a win for my clients. But he also knows loads about business processes and tools… which is a win for me. I learn something new every time we chat. When you get coached by Glenn, you’ll find he’s experienced, helpful and not in the least bit intimidating.”
