CLASSES

5 days to $100k

Forget slimming down, your New Year’s resolution is to bulk up your bank account.

Whether you’re on the cusp of hitting $100k or just starting out and want to lay the foundation to become a six-figure freelancer, 5 Days to $100k will provide fresh ideas, inspiration and advice to help you reach your income goals.

Here’s how it works: You’ll receive an email every morning for one week with worksheets to guide you through income and market analyses, insights from other six-figure freelancers and information to help you make a plan for success.

This is not a get-rich-quick scheme. Your income will not skyrocket to $100k in five days. But you will get the tools to analyze your income and clients, rethinking your freelance business and ramp up your earning potential to hit the six-figure mark.

COST: $50

“Jodi Helmer is a stellar example of success. She is a goal-setting machine who is not only a clear, concise storyteller, but also a great marketer of her own services. Jodi needs to write a book about her organizational skills (but then again she probably had one in the works).”

“If anyone out there needs to hire a coach to help with goal-setting (and goal-achieving!), you should give Jodi a call. It’s truly amazing how much you can get done when someone is keeping an eye on you.”

“Thank you SO much for this exceptionally useful workshop. I got so much out of it. I’m adding your great ideas to my strategy tool kit as we speak.”

Query Bootcamp

Queries matter. Fail to dazzle an editor with a fresh idea and well-thought-out pitch and your query will go straight to her trash folder.

Your queries may be getting rejected because the idea has no “wow factor” or the pitch is off target. Perhaps the number one reason you’re not generating more work – or landing lucrative assignments – is because you’re not sending queries at all. (We’ve all experienced “I-have-no-idea-where-to-start” or “How-will-I-ever-fit-this-in” phases)!

Whether you’re just starting out or need support to give your freelance career a boost, Query Boot Camp can give you the tools and inspiration to go from pitch to publication.

In this six-week class, you’ll get:

  • Engaging videos with helpful information about successfully querying editors at consumer, trade and custom publications
  • Help ideas into packaged pitches that sell
  • Tips for writing queries that shine
  • Detailed critiques to increase your chances of acceptance
  • Ideas to expand your businesses through targeted queries and letters of introduction
  • Friendly competition (and a few prizes) to encourage you to meet your goals

How it works:
You’ll receive a new video mini class and assignment every Monday morning for six weeks (January 23, 30, February 6, 13, 20 and 27)

Submit one query before noon EST every Friday (January 27, February 3, 10, 17, 24 and March 3) and you’ll receive a detailed critique and suggestions of possible markets by noon EST the following Monday.

Sign up for the premium version of Query Boot Camp and you’ll also benefit from three 30-minute calls to give you one-on-one support to help you achieve your querying and freelancing goals.
