"Tara is an excellent coach. She freely shares useful information and takes the time to make sure you understand. She is accessible and always ready to help. She has played an integral part in the growth of my business."

I had no idea where to start, who to learn from, or what options were even available to me. I had to piece together information from all over the internet, and I had no one to turn to when I had questions or needed a friendly kick in the pants. It was all very time-consuming, frustrating, and lonely.
I did manage to create a successful freelance editing business, and I've worked on over 160 books to date...but I don't want you to have to struggle like I did. I want to give you the tools, community, and accountability you need to be successful, and all in one place. That's exactly why I've created the Freelance Editors Club!
"I've learned so much and gained so much courage in just three months of being part of this club."

You’ll learn everything you need to know to start and launch your freelance editing business! The six-step Freelance Editing Business Framework includes:
Before you get started on anything else, you must be sure you’re starting your business with the right mindset. We’ll go over the different types of mindsets and how they can (and can’t) serve you.
We’ll walk through the steps of creating a simple business plan, including choosing your business name, defining your purpose, identifying your target market, and more. Then we’ll set some goals!
We’ll cover the four main types of editing and the differences between each. You’ll then be able to decide which services you would like to offer to start.
We’ll discuss the different types of business setups and give you resources on how to set up your business legally. We’ll also go over finances, taxes, and budgets.
We’ll go over creating a freelancer resume, the importance of contracts, and setting your rates. Then we’ll dive into building your website, the KEY thing to know when it comes to marketing, and share ideas on how to market your business.
We’ll talk about my favorite organization and productivity tools, how to manage your inbox, and how to set up your workspace.
"Taking the Freelance Editing Business Builder Coaching Program with Tara Whitaker was one of the most enriching and most empowering experiences I’ve encountered in a year where one could easily feel so helpless and succumb to feeling unproductive or insecure while on quarantine during a pandemic. The advice and knowledge Tara had shared with our group left us feeling so inspired and prepared to build our business no matter what your level of editing experience. She encouraged us to embrace our strengths and inspired us to keep learning about the editing craft while staying true to our authentic selves as we continue to build our brand identity."

Not sure where to start? My six-step framework maps out how to launch your freelance editing business in a strategic and thoughtful way.
Two times a month, I'll host Q&A calls with club members. Ask questions and get feedback from myself and others.
Never go at it alone! Our private community is there for you whenever you need it. (And it's NOT on Facebook!)
Each month, I'll release new content exclusively for club members. You'll have access to trainings, editing exercises, guest speaker interviews, a book club, and more.
You'll always have access to any content released from previous months. The longer you stay in the club, the more content you'll have at your fingertips!
Have a specific question for me? Ask away! You'll always have direct access to me via email and our private community while in the club.
"Tara is a fantastic teacher. She shares her knowledge freely and responds to questions with impressive speed and clarity."

The club is 100% online. When you join the club, you’ll get instant access to the membership site. Inside you'll find the framework, private community access, Q&A call info, and monthly content.
You’ll receive a welcome email to the email address you provide at checkout within 5-10 minutes of your purchase. From there, you’ll be able to log into the membership site and get access to all the fun!
The club is for those who are:
The club is NOT for those who are:
First of all, I want to be very clear: I love courses. I’ve purchased many courses in the past, and I’ll continue to buy more in the future.
But what I’ve found in working with freelance editors is that a course is great for learning a particular skill, but it’s lacking when it comes to ongoing learning and support. It’s that ongoing learning and support that made me choose a membership model over a course.
The current investment to join the club is $27/month or $270/year.
As long as you want! Your membership includes new trainings each month, so the longer you stay in the club, the more content you'll have at your fingertips! If you decide to leave the club, you can simply cancel within the membership site.
We want you to be satisfied with your purchase, so we offer a no-questions-asked money-back guarantee. To claim a refund, you must request your money back within 30 days of your initial enrollment.
"I always immensely enjoy working with Tara and I know you will too!"
