As a freelance writer, I know the importance of having good people around you.
When you are running your own micro-enterprise as a freelancer, you don't have a manager to send you off to professional development sessions or automatically help you when you get stuck.
That’s where mentoring and coaching comes in.
Sometimes all you need is a quick ‘tune up’ and you’re off - a one-on-one coaching session with an experienced and successful freelancer who can listen to your questions and provide you with useful, practical advice that you can implement immediately.
I offer one-on-one personalised coaching sessions for freelance writers at any stage of their career - whether you are yet to send your first pitch or if you have had success, but there are still certain things you want to work on, or publications that you haven’t yet managed to break into or productivity habits that you want to develop - whatever you want to achieve, I can help.
I offer 50 minute coaching sessions where you can ask me anything you like via Skype or phone.
We can brainstorm pitch angles and ideas, talk about potential publications, develop productivity habits, go through a pitch or an article - anything that will help you progress your writing career.
When you sign up, I'll ask you to fill in a form that tells me a little bit about yourself and your goals for the session.
We'll find a time that suits both of us and then we'll have a session that will get you on your way to reaching your freelance writing goals.
Each session lasts 50 minutes and costs $144 (including GST) - this is payable before our time together.
"Getting your feedback made me realise how much I’ve already done, and that I’m closer than I thought to achieving some of my other writing goals. Overall I feel much more positive and confident.
I would definitely recommend a mentoring session with Lindy. Speaking one-on-one to someone who’s thrown herself completely into the freelance life and is doing well is encouraging. I really like that you’re open to discussing anything that helps your client – there were a bunch of things I’d been wondering about (and worrying about) for months that were cleared up in the first half of the session.
Thanks again for a great session Lindy. I look forward to booking another one."

Having a mentor or a coach can make a huge difference to your career, especially if you are a female journalist. Throughout my freelance writing career, I have had a number of mentors and coaches, and I have learnt so much and been extended by each one.
