Freelance Writing Coaching Client Testimonials

Freelance writing coaching reviews from freelancers who’ve used Diana Kelly Levey’s coaching services.

“Since I am a blogger/copywriter just beginning to look into my freelancing options, I thought this freelance coaching session was extremely helpful in helping me pinpoint possible niches and the first steps I need to take. I already signed up for a follow-up coaching session.” – Trisha Traughber

“I signed up for Diana’s freelance coaching session to learn how to find content marketing clients and quickly got $2,000 worth of assignments from a new client within weeks! I used one of the pitching tactics Diana shared and it worked. Diana had great suggestions for me that were personalized based on my background and experience. I’d recommend her coaching to others!” -Natalie Rizzo, MS, RD

“Diana’s coaching session was personalized and we went over pitches I was struggling with along with tips to solve the issues. I would definitely sign up for a future coaching session because Diana’s knowledge and her experience was beneficial in helping me focus on companies as potential higher-paying freelance clients. Diana is very responsive and helpful–even after the call!” – Jennifer D.

It was a very helpful freelance writing coaching conversation and I did feel like the coaching session was personalized. The intake form was good for that purpose. I think 30 minutes was a good length of time for the freelance coaching call. It’s a good intro format for the price point. We were both pretty concise and I think that helped us fit in a lot of helpful back and forth. The call did make me feel motivated. It’s helpful to get Diana’s opinion and experience with being successful in identifying some higher-paying clients, which seems necessary to actually make a living at full-time freelancing. I think Diana’s comments and edits for my website were spot-on!” -Matt F.

“Working with Diana was definitely a benefit. Her detailed freelance coaching follow-up was very helpful in knowing the next steps for my writing career path. Diana is highly knowledgeable and I appreciated my time with her. The call steered me in the right direction. I have more awareness about my career prospects and the approach to take. I also purchased the 100+ Tips For Beginner Freelance Writers ebook and have found the guide helpful thus far.” – Natalia F.

“Diana spent time listening to my concerns and coming up with ideas specific to me. She listened carefully and gave me concrete steps to work on. She gave me advice on how to position myself as a writer in my area of interest. Shortly after the call, I was motivated to draft a new website and came up with some ideas to write about.” -Margo S.

The first freelance coaching session with Diana was incredibly helpful. I’ve been a copywriter and web developer for about 10 years. I’ve been looking for mentorship because even though I know the ropes of the actual work, running my own freelance business in a sustainable, profitable way hasn’t been as clear. Diana helped me to achieve clarity on the first call alone. She helped me to see the challenges that I was facing from a new perspective. I took her advice, made changes, and booked a second session which was also rich with gems. I’ll be booking again soon! If you’re a writer seeking some clarity, no matter where you’re at, you’ll likely find the help and clarity you need with her.” -Nicole D.

“Diana absolutely met me where I was in my process, and without judgment. She’s obviously very experienced but never made me feel uncomfortable being honest about where I needed help. ” – Jessica M. “I purchased the 20+ Pitches that Worked PDF and I read it before our coaching call. It was helpful because when we got on our call, we didn’t have to start from the beginning. I already had a sense of what I needed to do so I could ask more targeted questions about my specific situation.

“I felt that the coaching sessions were personalized for my experience. The call made me feel motivated to work on the next steps and let me know I was on the right track and just needed to tweak some things. Getting help with my pitch gave me a great baseline e-mail to work off of in the future. “- Neal F.

The calls with Diana helped me feel much more motivated and excited about my next steps as a freelancer. Even though I’ve been freelancing for a few years, it’s helpful to have guidance from a seasoned writer and editor who not only has worked in the media/editorial industry full-time but has built a successful freelance career. When you work solo, there are just some things (like navigating rates, clients, etc.) that can be difficult to do on your own, and having someone who’s been there to give advice is so valuable. I would encourage any freelancer who needs help getting started or leveling up their freelance career to hire Diana. I only wish I would have found Diana at the beginning of my freelance career and didn’t wait almost two years in to start working with her!” – Mercey L.

“I feel like our freelance coaching call was really the catalyst for setting this into motion; so I thank you again for all your advice. It seemed a little daunting to get back into the swing of things at first, but speaking with you really gave me the push to be proactive and pitch myself to various platforms.”- Alexandra M. (She landed her first assignment weeks after our call!)

“I can’t thank you enough for your help. It was invaluable and has boosted my confidence and focus on what steps to take next. I was able to move on from a low-paying client and spend more time pursuing work I’m interested in. “ Kristen O’Neal
