You know what they say about books— if you desperately want to read a book and it hasn’t yet been written, then you must write that book.
I feel the same way about communities.
For years, I’ve been looking for a community of writers who are passionate about the work they do and have a deep burning desire to tell stories but want— no, demand— to be paid well for that writing.
A positive and supportive community where we’d help each other not just find new markets and share contact information for editors and agents, but also push each other to raise the bar of what we’re each capable of, to challenge each other to do more and better.
A community of people who hold each other accountable and race one another to the finish line in a positive, supportive, fun way.
A writing community that finishes that project. Closes that deal. Demands double the offered payment.
I looked for years but I never found that community.
And so now I’ve created it.
Welcome to The Finishers.
I cannot tell you just how excited I am about bringing this community to you. It is one of those things that I have dreamed of since I started The International Freelancer, and indeed, since I started blogging about writing fifteen years ago. It is so close to my heart, this project, that I’m putting everything I have into it.
As a member of The Finishers, you’ll get access to trainings, weekly live Q&As with me, your own personal accountability thread that I will check on regularly to keep you on your toes, a Facebook community that supports you, and short bursts of daily motivation and inspiration to get you straight into action and finishing things.
I can’t even fit in all that I have planned for the community into one short paragraph, so you need to go— right now— and check it all out on this page:
The eventual price of this membership site is going to be $49 a month but to make it accessible to as many people as possible, I’m starting with a launch price of $29 a month or $290 a year (two months free).
Because I want it to be EVEN MORE ACCESSIBLE, especially to my readers outside the Western world, I’m offering an even better deal.
FOR FOUR DAYS ONLY, you can snag an annual membership to the Finishers for $99 only.
A whole year, 52 weeks, of outcome-focused trainings, live weekly Q&As, personalised attention to your goals, daily accountability and inspiration, plus access to community challenges where everyone works together in the pursuit of a common goal. You are not going to find a better deal than this. Guaranteed.
To sign up, go this page and enter “LAUNCH99” in the box on the right where it says “Coupon code.”
But wait, I know what you’re thinking. If it’s so valuable, why am I offering it for such low prices?
1. I want this to be accessible to as many people as possible. Eventually the price will go up, but if you’re someone who needs a nudge in your career but can’t afford more expensive trainings, you have no excuse not to get in on this right away.
2. More selfishly, I want to grow this community as quickly as possible initially because I truly believe that a thriving and engaged community will be beneficial to all of us. I want not dozens, but hundreds, of us finishing our projects, getting to our goals quickly, and providing inspiration to the rest of the community. I want to see friendships being created, accountability being offered, and resources being provided by not just me but the entire community.
I know it’s my website and my creation so I’m partial to its benefits, but I believe so strongly in what I’ve put together that I’m convinced that once you’re a part of this, you’re never going to want to leave. And that you will 100x the investment you make in it.
Check it out for yourself though, and let me know if you have any questions.
See you on the inside!
