What’s Conor’s background?
Conor reported that he “started ghostwriting in March 2019 with zero experience or real preparation.”
I’ve been sloooowly transitioning to working remotely since maybe 2015.
That’s 4 years.
In that time, I’ve picked up a lot of resources, soft skills, and mentorship that helped me land my ghostwriting job and quickly develop it from a part-time, entry-level gig to something more specialized and much better paying.
Conor also mentioned a resource he found helpful:
For actually learning to write well, Shani Raja’s Ninja Writing courses on Udemy are a great resource. He used to be an editor of The Wall Street Journal, and slowly, methodically goes through big and small ways to improve your writing.
There’s also plenty of exercises where he shows you how to rewrite sections of text, making them more impactful and engaging.
How does Conor find clients?
Conor has one primary freelance client. Here’s how he found them:
In March 2019 Niall posted a writing job in the Freedom Business Builder group.
I applied and that job became my current ghostwriting gig.
