Hi, I'm Tara!

When I started my freelance editing business over nine years ago, I felt totally lost.

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 190 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.”

What will you learn in the Freelance Editors 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.

In addition to the framework, You'll also have access to new offerings every month.

“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.”
