Set Yourself Up For Freelancing Success is a 7-week group coaching program that will help you create customized strategies to start + build a successful, profitable freelance business and work with clients you love.
Want to know exactly what you get in the program? Check out this course overview video, taken from the Welcome Module:
The truth is, there is no one-size-fits-all.
Through actionable lessons, worksheets, cheat sheets and other resources, I'll empower you to determine what's right for you, your business, and your ideal client: which social media platform to use as a marketing tool, how to best communicate with clients, how you can build a client base you adore, and more!
What works for one person won't necessarily work for someone else -- so we focus on creating individualized strategies that GO THE DISTANCE for building a business that *speaks* to you... and has so much more success than if you had just copied someone else's strategy.
So whether you're brand new to freelancing or you've been a struggling home-based business owner for a while, this 7-week e-course is made for YOU to...
- Promote your services more effectively (using marketing techniques you're most comfortable with!)
- Get paid what you're worth
- Have your ideal clients start coming to you so you can spend more of your time working on the projects you love (rather than constantly hustling to find more work).
If you've ever thought to yourself...
"I wish I had more self-confidence to just START my freelance business"
"Freelancing would be so much better if I felt LESS frazzled and MORE empowered"
"I have no idea how much I should charge for my services"
"Running a business is WAY too overwhelming!"
"What the heck should I spend my time and energy on to have the most success with my business?"
...you'll get help with ALL of that in this program!
This e-course is for...
- New freelancers who want direction and systems in place to set up a successful freelancing business
- Established freelancers who have been struggling to find clients and get paid what they're worth
- Freelancers who offer online or offline (in-person) services --- writers, editors, social media managers, graphic designers, web designers, translators, makeup artists, music teachers, digital marketers, personal stylists, artists, virtual assistants, and more! Any kind of freelancer is welcome.
This course is not for you if you...
- Want to have a product-based business rather than a service-based business
- Don't want to put in the necessary work to make improvements to your business
- Need help with developing your specific type of freelancing skill you'll be offering
- Already have a successful, thriving freelance business that you're completely satisfied with
Wait... this program can really work for freelancers in ANY kind of industry?
YEP. The reason why this program works for any freelancer is because we focus on creating customized strategies.
Regardless of your industry, the lessons and worksheets can be adapted and are specifically designed so that you can build your business the way YOU want.
That's the whole point of this program: it's all about customization so that it CAN work for any kind of freelancer!
Students in this program have come from all different kinds of freelancing industries, including writers, editors, graphic designers, web developers, makeup artists, digital marketers, e-learning developers, and art curators.
Your investment for this program is $397 (or 6 monthly payments of only $75).

"This course could not have come at a more perfect time. I started working for myself in January this year and, while I've been fortunate to have clients from the outset, I've been constantly worrying already about moving forward!
I guess, when it comes down to it, being a freelancer can at times feel as though you're completely alone. Working at a laptop, usually from home, it's easy to imagine that freelancing is a lonely and scary journey. Where will I get work? How do I promote myself? Where's all my confidence gone? are the questions that roll around in your head.
Through Sagan's course, I'm finding the answers and it's helped immensely already. The course content and the worksheets are just brilliant. And I feel as though, when I read Sagan's writing, she is here in the room guiding me along.
Her friendly tone combined with her professional manner and knowledge tells me she knows what she's talking about and she cares. Thanks Sagan!"
- Robyn, writer & editor at Red Robyn Communications and a Set Yourself Up For Freelancing Success student
Hi! I'm Sagan, a published author and freelance coach with 8 years of experience as a freelance writer, editor, and social media manager. And when I first started as a freelancer, I found it just as overwhelming as you do.
I get it: I've been there.
The first time I tried my hand at full-time freelancing, I hustled hard before getting a ton of work. It was fantastic! But when those projects wrapped up (which they all seemed to do at around the same time), I realized I had NO IDEA how to proceed. I didn't have a strategy in place, and I didn't have a clue how to find clients or thrive as a freelancer. I panicked. So I took the first office job I found, grateful for the security. Except... it wasn't enough. I wanted the flexibility and freedom of freelancing. I wanted to call the shots and work on projects I LOVED.
It took a couple years of freelancing on the side before I took the leap to be a full-time freelancer again. And this time, I set up the systems and processes that would lead me to building an incredibly successful and profitable freelancing business.
By using the strategies I outline in this course, I was able to support myself and my partner (including paying all the bills and making mortgage payments) while living a comfortable lifestyle --- just on my freelancing income. I no longer need to hustle to find clients, because the clients come to me. This gives me an opportunity to spend more time focusing on the work I love doing, rather than needing to constantly promote and market my freelance services.
This course teaches you the condensed practices so that in just 7 empowering, engaging, and actionable modules, you'll learn exactly what you need to do in your freelancing business to set yourself up for success... and get results!
I created this course so you don't have to spend months --- or years! --- trying to figure out what you should or shouldn't do as a freelancer. It's all right here in Set Yourself Up For Freelancing Success.
"I wanted to say that I have REALLY enjoyed your course. I feel much more confident in what I'm doing. I really appreciate how attentive you are with feedback and responding to the forum quickly and with such valuable information.
I have gained so much from this course and it was a really great way for me to get through a lot of learning and logistics for my business. Thanks again!"

"Sagan inspires [freelancers] with her own experiences and insights into the life of a freelancer. Her passion, dedication and the hard work she puts into her freelance career come across as she seeks to inform and guide others who have the ability and dedication to make a go at setting up their own business.
Those starting out may wonder what is the best way to start, whether any special qualifications are needed, where to find work, what fees to charge and how to deal with vacations or times of sickness when you are self-employed. Sagan shows what is possible with a little hard work and persistence."
- Hilary Hawkes, giving a 5-star review to The Business of Writing & Editing: Practical Tips & Templates for New Freelancers (a companion guide to the Set Yourself Up For Freelancing Success e-course)
"As a moonlighting freelancer, I've found Sagan's tips to be very helpful for streamlining some processes I had otherwise difficulty with."
