Money Matters: How to increase your income by understanding your mindset

Many freelance editors suffer from feast or famine in terms of workload and income. But even during busy periods, editors can be working long hours and still not be making the money they need or want to earn. While many people think that the solution is to read more marketing books, often it is more than information that is needed – business owners benefit from looking at their internal beliefs to work out what is stopping them from growing their business. And while critical, this self-reflection can be uncomfortable.

Dr Malini Devadas runs a successful editing and writing coaching business in Australia. She will present a workshop on overcoming the pitfalls that many freelance editors find themselves dealing with. This workshop is suitable for any editor who wants more income, more clients or both. After completing this workshop, you will feel more confident and excited about your editing business. You will have worked out what you need to charge per hour (at a minimum), chosen a niche you feel passionate about and started to develop a marketing plan to get more clients. But most importantly, you will have started to uncover the stories you tell yourself that have held you back in growing your business.

This workshop is a members’ benefit for SfEP members in Canada and the United States, although all SfEP members are welcome. Non-SfEP members may be added to the waiting list (see below). The cost of attendance is CAN$100 for members and CAN$150 for non-members (with a 15% discount for members of certain other editing-related organisations) and includes a three-hour session, snacks and beverages.
