Tara is a fantastic teacher. She shares her knowledge freely and responds to questions with impressive speed and clarity.
Your coaching has helped me focus my energy on what matters most. Thank you!
I got stuck in the mindset that I had to do everything by myself. While I learned a lot, I also ran into a lot of roadblocks that maybe weren’t necessary. I’m excited to finish off my second year strong with an amazing coach! I can’t recommend Tara enough.
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.
Thank you for your support and for believing in me (even when I’ve struggled to believe in myself). It was truly the best gift I could have asked for this year. Nothing compares to the authentic, compassionate, and encouraging wisdom you’ve offered me this year.
Freelance Editors Club
When you’re in the space she provides, you truly feel the nonjudgemental, compassionate space where you can freely be who you are. We can safely talk about grievances with clients and ask about how to continue to thrive in our businesses. She will never tell us not to do something or ‘this is how it’s done.’ We’re all different, and she’s all about celebrating the uniqueness of every person that comes to the table.
Tara, from the bottom of my heart I mean this: your club has changed the trajectory of my business. It’s made me a better copy editor. You’ve introduced me to people who have become friends, clients who made a huge difference to my bottom line, and you make all of this FUN! I can’t imagine not being a part of the Freelance Editors Club!!! You’re absolutely one of my most favorite people, and your club is pure gold!
Your club has been the most fulfilling thing I've done in a long, long time. And it happened without me having to force it...so ultimately, I know it's where I'm supposed to be. Our energies aligned, and the rest is history!
Days before signing up for the club I was an emotional mess. Starting your own freelancing business is not for the faint of heart (as you know). I was beating myself up about everything under the sun. The club helped me do a complete 180! I am so grateful to you, and I am more than happy to share all of this with you because I know how hard it can be to see the impact we have made on the world and others. You have been a complete gift, so thank you!
Tara, thank you for taking this leap. You’re a gifted mentor, and you and the members of the club inspire me. You are my model for starting my own book club community, just so you know. Thank you for your generosity.
I’ve learned so much and gained so much courage in just three months of being part of this club.
Tara Whitaker's strong edits, sharp editorial queries and suggestions, facility with style, and friendly professionalism have made her an invaluable freelance copyeditor and proofreader. The entire team knows that we can rely on her to help us polish anything we throw at her, be it a travel guide, a cookbook, or even maps.
Tara is a pleasure to work with from start to finish. She has a stellar eye for story and character development, as well as a great amount of creativity.
Choosing to work with Tara...has been the best decision I've made in my writing career. Her skills have helped me shape my rambling manuscripts into polished, professional books.
