Oh Patricia, thanks for your kind words, but I don't feel like I'm at coach level yet. But here's what I did - I focused on writing a nice proposal template (telling clients I will write/edit for them, describing my experience, and showing my portfolio). The proposal is the most important part, as well as bidding for as many jobs as you can find. Look for expert-level jobs and don't accept rates lower than your baseline. Getting accustomed to the platform is the hardest part, but there are great resources about it on Udemy. Good luck!

In the process of GYST’ing and following my intuition. Gave up a career in medicine to pursue writing, blogging, and, most of all, living.
