Janelle worked really hard to ensure I got the most I could out of coaching with her. I signed up for one call a week and emailed with her in between. She gave me personalized answers for my questions about writing, marketing strategy, and so much more.
I went from wandering to knowing where I was going. My skills and confidence have already level-jumped and I still have one last session. The investment in her coaching has already paid off. I’m glad I didn’t wait to sign up!

I had an incredible experience working with Janelle in a 1:1 coaching session. Janelle's knowledge and strategies for landing clients were invaluable.
I highly recommend Janelle for anyone looking to enhance their medical writing abilities and advance their career in the field.
I had the pleasure of working with Janelle recently, and I can't emphasize enough how valuable that experience was. Their guidance and expertise in the field not only improved my writing skills but deepened my understanding of the freelance health writer world.
Their personalized feedback made the learning process enjoyable and insightful. I cannot recommend Janelle's services enough. Anyone looking to start freelance writing should definitely check out her website willowbarkwriting.com and her LinkedIn page. Thank you for all of your help and unwavering support!

What can we cover in the coaching sessions?
Anything you want related to writing and freelancing! The only thing I won't do is find you specific clients or give you my leads. But I can give you the tools to find your own clients, and we can see if we can find you some together.
What is your schedule for calls/zooms?
For calls, I am available Monday through Thursday 3:45 to 7:45EST. For Zooms, I am available from 4:45 to 7:45 EST.
For emails, I am available whenever.
What is the difference between emails and calls?
You get more access to me with emails. I am available more frequently for emails. You also get all the written content for future reference. In the phone calls and zooms, you may have a brief outline, but I expect you to take notes as we chat.
In an email, you get to ask me 15 questions, which is more than we get to in a zoom session/phone call, usually.
What happens if I have a question after the phone call?
No worries! You have a full week after to shoot me any quick questions that come up. I'm happy to help you work through your thoughts that come up after.

The course is split into 10 modules that answer these questions:
1. What’s the general idea behind freelance writing?
