IWOC Meeting

Maximizing Your Freelance Writing Income

Join us as IWOC member Diana Schneidman discusses marketing dilemmas commonly faced by freelance writers who serve corporate clients.

Diana will share lessons she has learned over two-plus decades as a freelance writer specializing in the insurance and asset management industries. And she will invite participants to share their own success advice and war stories.

Gain new perspectives on how to:

  • Get more work fast
  • Select and manage your niche
  • Negotiate fees
  • Structure payments to assure timely revenue

Diana is the author of Real Skills, Real Income: A Proven Marketing System to Land Well-Paid Freelance and Consulting Work in 30 Days or Less to help the unemployed, the underemployed, and current solopros who underearn to land more clients quickly. The book, available on Amazon, explains exactly what to do and say to start building a clientele in less than a month.

She helps people who want to land well-paid freelance and consulting work quickly, and her publishing and coaching practice is named "Stand Up 8 Times" after a Japanese proverb: "Fall down seven times, stand up eight."

She is also a freelance writer and researcher specializing in the insurance and asset management industries; past employers include Nationwide Insurance, Calamos Investments, and Caterpillar Investment Management Ltd.

The meeting is free for IWOC members. Non-members pay $10 with online preregistration/payment or $15 at the door.

All attendees are welcome to join us for a buy-your-own dinner at a nearby restaurant after the meeting.
