To run a business you need to be clear on your message, your money and your marketing.

But first, there is something else you need to master: your mindset.


To be able to grow your editing business you need to do the inner work.

The bad news? The inner work is hard. It requires looking deep within at your beliefs about yourself and your skills. It also requires giving some thought to how you view money – something that many editors don’t like to think about. But, without doing the inner work, you will struggle to take the action required to get your message out into the world. This means that no-one will knows about your business and, in turn, you won’t have enough clients.

The good news? I can help.

Who am I and why am I qualified to help you?

I’m Dr Malini Devadas. I have been a professional editor since 2004 and set up my own editing business in 2013. I learned the hard way that without the right mindset, it is difficult to increase your income. I have worked with some amazing coaches over the years and am now training to be a professional coach so that I can help others.

I am on a mission to revolutionise the way people see editors. I believe that we need to value ourselves and our skills before we can expect others to do so. Only then will our profession get the recognition it deserves.
