Tired of Working in a Cubicle?
Learn how to Leave the Rat Race and Start YOUR Own Freelance Writing Business
Can you really earn $10, $20, $35+ an hour?
Yes You Can!
- Feeling like a hamster on life's wheel?
- Exhausted from a daily routine that is unfulfilling?
- Wishing you could be the one in control of what you do and when?...
...if any of these questions describe what you're feeling right now, then let me share a little bit of my story with you and how I just might be able to help.
Stuck in the Rat Race
On the surface, I had a good job in a large company, doing mainly administration work.
What I didn't have was freedom:
- Freedom to chart my own course through life.
- Freedom to work where and when I pleased.
- Freedom to dictate what I wanted to spend my time and money on.
We all have big dreams when we're children. Somewhere along life's journey, our actions and the 'pressure' from society to 'get a good education, land a secure job and stay there forever' whittle those dreams down.
I knew I needed to change in order to have the life I dreamed about when I was young.
Travel! Helping People. A Life With Meaning... Yes Please.
But, I was stuck in the 9-5 rut.
So, What's a Girl to Do?
I took matters into my own hands and initially started to look at ways to supplement my income.
I figured hey, nothing to lose right?
And that led me to companies like oDesk and Elance and the world of outsourcing work.
A virtual hot pot of freelance writing work at all levels - open to anyone who cares to put their hat in the ring!
I hesitated a while before I took the plunge. That little voice kept whispering in my head...
- What if my writing sucked?
- What if no one would hire me?
- What if I hated writing articles on oDesk?
- What if the average rate was too low for me to make a living from?
...but I knew I had to take action to lead a more fulfilling life.
So I registered and began applying for roles that I thought I could do - and kept checking my inbox, and checking my inbox and checking my inbox - while chewing my fingernails to the bone!
Where were all the emails to interview?
Then something happened...
I Landed My First Client Within 7 Days!
And that first client started the ball rolling...
...10 months later I QUIT my mind numbing day job!
Two years on, I'm location independent.
It's not all easy and there's definitely work involved, but the FREEDOM makes it all worthwhile.
My clients from oDesk have followed me and I get new job offers all the time, mainly from word of mouth referrals and from oDesk promoting my profile - Gotta love that!
I'm now my own boss and can choose to live and work anywhere!
Travel the World
Currently, I'm in beautiful New Zealand catching up with family and hanging with my hubby, but I'm getting the urge to visit Chile and wear a sombreroˆ very soon - Ole!
I now consult, coach and mentor entrepreneurs, small business startups and people just like you.
Here's What Others Have To Say:

Lise, I wanted to say after my initial first read, it has helped me already. Using your tips on how to find local clients, I found two and contacted them, both are keen to work with me outside of oDesk
I have got another job on oDesk as a result of looking local and using your proposal. I feel I'm off to great start already and within the 7 days as you said! Thanks for writing this guide.
Benjamin Fishel, benjaminfishel.com
I was initially sceptical about the looking for work on oDesk. I always assumed it would be impossible to compete in such a large market. The Definitive Guide To Getting Working on oDesk gave me a great structure and some really practical tips on getting started and implementing an effective strategy. Fortunately for us, Lise is someone who has built her business from the ground up using the exact methods she lays out in the book. I’d recommend this to any freelancer looking to get started or expand their client base! Thanks Lise

I think Lise's guide is very precise and offers a clear “path” to the reader. If you're looking for a guide that gives you the low down on how to make good money through oDesk, this is it! Nice work Lise!
Missy Cooke, Six Thirty-One
I think the content is good. I like how Lise goes above and beyond freelance writing by suggesting side gigs, networking opportunities, etc. It's a practical guide that people should easily see results from if they just follow the steps Lise has laid out. Love it!Jana Fadness, janafadness.com
I had never considered offering my services on oDesk before since I had just assumed it was filled with low paying jobs. But, after speaking with Lise and learning her methods, I basically followed them step by step. Within weeks, I had multiple 5 star reviews and had made over $1,000 from gigs. Now, hardly a week goes by that I'm not sent interview requests for good paying jobs on the site. Without Lise's help, there is no way I would have had the success I've seen on oDesk so quickly. This is a must read for anyone interested on cracking the code to oDesk success.Liz Froment, @LFroment
