Are you a talented editor who loves this specialized work and the freedom it could allow you—if only you could actually turn it into a great living?
Does the combination of the words “editing” and “underpaid” sound all too familiar to you? (Or how about one of my least favourite phrases: “feast or famine”? 🤢)
Want a behind-the-scenes look at exactly how a skilled editor can scale from $1–2K months (or less) to $10–15K months on repeat?
Then you’re in the right place, friend.
Welcome to my offering for my fellow editors!
I’m Catie Phares, and I’ve been freelance editing since 2010. In this hour-long workshop, I’ll walk you through the big-picture version of how I became a six-figure editor.
Like far too many editors, I started my career with virtually no awareness of the value of this work. I took whatever work came in, charged what I hoped anyone who happened to find me could afford, and felt lucky just to be earning something (as in anything) all on my own. But when personal circumstances and some entrepreneurial coaching pushed me to consider a better way, I took the steps outlined in this workshop. I tweaked the ones that could be improved and expanded the ones that led to instant results. And then something happened that really shocked me: they worked.
Three months after implementing these strategies, I had my first $10,000 month. Within one year, I had nearly doubled my annual income. In 2022, I hit $13,000 and then $14,000 months.
I need you to know something. Please hold this truth in your mind, even if it's just for a single, uncontested moment: if you're a good editor, these results are totally possible for you too.
This class is for you if:
You have at least a year of editing experience and/or a few happy clients (even if they're not paying ones yet).
You're fairly confident in your editing abilities (no certifications required, but you should know this course contains no information on how to edit text—it's purely about how to leverage your existing skills).
You're willing to look at your mindset and approach to this work with the aim of expanding to new heights, even when it gets uncomfortable or requires trying new things.
You're excited to achieve consistent, replicable (but NOT effortless or overnight) success as an editor. There is no get-rich-quick scheme revealed here!
What you need (and don’t need) to start earning excellent money as an editor.
Adopting a calm and generous mindset of service, flexibility, authority, and value to consistently attract and delight premium clients.
Choosing a niche and why it’s the fastest track to higher rates.
Finding and pitching premium clients (included are 2 tried-and-tested templates that I developed, free for you to adapt as needed in seeking out new ideal clients).
Packaging and delivering your services in a way that delights both you and those dream clients (and deters the ones that will give you nightmares).
Using systems that can help increase your effective hourly rate… and more.
Sound good so far? Then I invite you to check out my practical framework on how to turn your editorial gifts into a lucrative income!
In this workshop, we'll talk about:
Take a sneak peek inside...
Don't spend another day settling for less than you deserve.
You’ll end this workshop feeling inspired and empowered to amplify your impact and your income as an editor.
