You’re a creative soul and lover of words and books. As a child no one ever said you could be a professional writer. If you somehow started down that path, you were often told to be realistic.
But what’s more real than the need to write and share your gift? What’s more real than the feeling what you have to say can make a difference?
You have always known the power of words. They have changed you and they have hurt you. Now it’s time to stop listening to others and be who you are. You’re a writer. Claim it. Own it. Live it.
We need powerful stories and powerful storytellers. We need people with the courage to share their truth so others know they’re not alone. We need a new way of looking at the world and new ideas. We need people with a heart of service and a willingness to do what they love and only accept success on their terms.
You have waited long enough to step out there. In fact, you can’t wait anymore.
It’s too painful watching others succeed and the years pass without you having made your mark. Those you once stood next to have moved forward. Those who were behind you have now landed next to you. Will this be the year you finally take that next step? Or will you watch your peers move on again?
It’s your choice. You always have choice. Don’t make excuses anymore.
We need your fire. We need you whole and it’s time to honor your holiness. We’re amazing beings. It’s time to take yourself and your gift seriously. When we do this, others will begin to do so as well.
And I want to live in a world where writers are held in high esteem and paid well. Not just those famous few, but all of us. Our gift is just as beautiful and important as what other creatives do. But that will only happen when we begin to take our work and ourselves seriously.
When you step up and step into your abilities fully, when you become the pro you always knew you could be, others will begin to believe it, too.
Count me as one of those who believes in you. Find others who do as well. Surround yourself with professionals and let’s all lift one another and the profession to a place where we are honored.
To help us do this I’ve created a Facebook group based on The 7 Keys to Becoming a Pro Writer. The 7 Keys encompass the pro mindset and lifestyle. Below you'll find the group and three other ways you can work with them beginning June 3.
The Writers Sangha: A Facebook group where we can support one another as we live The 7 Keys. Live weekly teachings only found in the group.
Pro Writer Keys Newsletter: Weekly tips and inspiration only found in the newsletter as well as posts from social media and the Pro Writer Keys Blog. Sign up now and be one of the first to receive the free eworkbook Crafting Your Pro Writer Routine & Rituals on June 3.
Pro Writer Keys Blog: A place to discover more about The 7 Keys and how to incorporate them into your life. I'll share my ongoing journey as an example so you know you're not alone.
#prowriterkeys on Twitter: Daily tips and inspiration can be accessed using this new hashtag. This starts Monday, May 13.
There will also be workshops, a program as well as free webinars based on The 7 Keys. You can learn more about these here or below.
Let’s do this! No more playing small. No more holding back as others move forward. Now is the time to succeed on your own terms doing what you love. And the journey begins within…

What people are saying about Joanne
As Spiritual Guide...
If you ever need someone to talk to, someone with no agenda, no pep talk or tough love, someone who meets you with energy that's clean like a white canvas, then talk to Joanne. I'll never be able to thank her enough for the support she showed me in such a critical time in my life.
~ Laura M. Courrau
Joanne was very easy to work with. She hit it out of the park the first time around (which is unusual in my niche market). She is definitely my "go to" person for content writing. Great job! I can't wait to work with her again!
~ Tami Mullen, Intuitive Group
"A lovely writer and a terrific story-teller!"
~ Brett Hodges, Owner & Creator of Right Pet
FANTASTIC!!! Joanne wrote an interesting article that perfectly fit my audience. Great examples, well written and well organized.
She NAILED IT!!!
