When I had my first mentoring session with Sophie, I wasn’t sure if I could make money writing about the topics (parenting) that I really wanted to write about. Thanks to that session, I started pitching — and regularly writing for — several high-paying, quality parenting websites. My first really great online clips were due to the confidence Sophie gave me.
When I had my second mentoring session, I had a lot of great ideas I was working on — too many, really! — and she helped me narrow things down practically to stuff I could actually accomplish. Not only that, but then she sent me a job listing, just as a bonus, which ended up turning into my first ongoing blogging gig! — a huge accomplishment, not to mention a nice bit of stable income.
Sophie is a fabulous blogging mentor, not just because she’s smart and creative and encouraging and has lots of great ideas, but also because she’s hilarious and fun and she tells you like it is. I am so happy with the direction my business is going and how it’s growing, and I owe a lot of that to Sophie’s encouragement and ideas. She gave me the burst of confidence and energy I needed, right when I needed it.

I’ve had Sophie as a blogging mentor for a few weeks now, and all I can say is that I wish I’d had her around since the inception of my freelance blogging career.
I always thought blogging only made money through affiliates, AdWords, sponsors, etc. I didn’t realize you could write for businesses who didn’t have time to maintain their blogs. And the best thing about Sophie’s advice was how she explained where to find such businesses and how to contact them, something that I felt other freelancers and online marketing advisers were hiding from me.
I’m now a freelance blogger with a few happy clients on my portfolio. And I know that if I ever need her advice, Sophie will definitely be around to provide it.

Frequently asked questions, answered

A: We can meet up online via Skype or Google Hangouts (both free). If you’d rather call me on the phone, I’ll give you my number.

A: Yep, you can book extra sessions any time. Choose a package above to get started and click the button — once we’ve scheduled your first session, you can simply email me to add extra sessions.
Q: “Can we do my mentoring via email instead of Skype? I have a medical condition / broken microphone / phobia that stops me from doing voice or video calls.”
A: Absolutely! This mentoring is for you. If you need to do it by email or IM or even Twitter, we can arrange that. If long written exchanges aren’t possible for you either, we can break it into smaller chunks of time. When we schedule your first session, just let me know about your specific needs.
