Did you know that your mindset is probably the number one thing stopping you from growing your freelance editing business?
Introducing Boost Your Editing Income
A group coaching program to help freelance editors feel more confident, find more clients and earn more money
Right now, you are desperate to build a flourishing editing business, but you can relate one or more of the following statements:
You are working long hours and don't have the time or energy for fun in your life.
You aren’t earning enough money but are too scared to increase your rates.
You don't want to turn away work, even if the project is on a topic you aren't interested in.
You hate the thought of marketing.
You know things aren’t working, but the only solution you can think of is to read more books on marketing, and that doesn’t help you take the action that is needed to grow your business!
Growing a freelance business takes work, but there is one type of work that is often overlooked: the inner work. What do I mean? Well, it's hard to raise your rates if deep down you have a belief that you don't deserve to earn more money. It's hard to increase your marketing efforts if you think that promoting yourself is unbecoming.
The good news is that it's possible to change your mindset!
My program will help you do the mindset work, so that by the end of the four modules you will feel confident to not only create but also implement a marketing plan that will attract your ideal clients.
What will this program help you do?
Develop a clear vision
Use the guided prompts in the Module 1 workbook to paint a picture of a life that you really want, including work that you actually enjoy.
Realise what's holding you back
Identify the limiting beliefs that are stopping you from creating the editing business of your dreams, and learn how to overcome them.
Learn how to take action
Start thinking differently about yourself and your business and create a marketing plan that you will actually implement.
We're all different, so a one-size-fits-all approach doesn't work when it comes to marketing.
There's a lot of information available about marketing, but information alone is not enough. If it were, then you'd probably have read some marketing books and now be happily running a profitable business.
The reason it's so difficult to implement what we learn is that it requires a clear vision of who we help and how we help them, and then confidence to share our message with the world.
I have combined my years of experience as a freelance editor with my training as a mindset coach and my study of marketing principles to create an e-course that will help you feel like a confident and successful business owner. Our feelings are critical, because unless we truly embody the role of business owner, we will stay stuck in a situation where we are not telling anyone about our business and then simply relying on the few random enquiries that land in our inbox.
Each of the four modules will include training for you to go through in your own time at your convenience, worksheets to take what you're learning and put it into action, and opportunities to ask questions and make sure you are moving forward.
MODULE 1: Your vision for the business
At the beginning, we need to focus on you: what do you want, what do you need to do to get it and are you willing to do what is needed? This will form the foundation of the rest of the course and, therefore, the foundation of your business.
module 2: Your money mindset
In this module, you will identify any limiting beliefs you have around money and will also get clear on how much money you want to earn in your freelance editing business. Yes, what you want, rather than what you think you should or deserve to earn!
module 3: Your messaging
What are your fears around declaring a niche? For most people, it is the fear of missing out on other work. By the end of this module, you will be clear on who you help and how you help them.
module 4: Your marketing plan
In this module, you will create a marketing plan that feels doable and exciting rather than intimidating and impossible! But first, you will look at what currently stops you from doing any marketing.
Here’s what you’ll get when you sign up
Four weeks of training videos and worksheets covering your vision, your money, your messaging and you mindset.
Live Q&A/group coaching
Two group coaching calls each month, to help you work through any blocks you may have.
A supportive community
Meet others who are on the same journey by joining our Facebook community.
Ongoing access to course content so you can revisit the material later as well as new material that is added later.
About the program leader,
Dr Malini Devadas
Dr Malini Devadas completed a PhD in neuroscience and worked in medical research before realising she enjoyed the writing more than the lab work. She began her editing career in 2004, working in house at a small consultancy firm; in addition to learning her editing craft, she also learned a lot about running a business.
In 2013, Malini set up her own editing and writing coaching business. Since then, she has spent much of her time studying marketing and realising that mindset is the biggest thing holding back most sole traders.
Here’s what people are saying about the course
I'm glad I took the plunge and signed up
After contemplating taking the Boost Your Editing Income course for quite a while, I am glad I took the plunge and signed up. I’ve been an editor for 20 years and have always hated the marketing aspect of running a business. The idea of promoting myself makes me cringe. I learned quite a bit about marketing, my goals, and what’s holding me back. Most valuable of all were the weekly live chats. Malini is a gifted listener. She has an amazing talent to hear what’s hidden behind your words and ask you pointed questions to draw out deeper truths. I finished the class knowing the steps I want to take to grow my business and with greater confidence in my ability to do so.
I found the modules so valuable in breaking down my mental obstacles and inspiring me to actually do this work.
I've increased my rates and have started to work on language for my website and other places I have (or could have) an online presence. Most important, I've gotten into the habit of working on this every week without letting fear and excuses get in the way. Thank you so much for creating this course.
I would recommend this course for any editor needing that nudge to boost their income, and for me it performed 100% as advertised.
Malini's positive outlook is realistic and grounded, and she’s supportive while also reminding you of other perspectives, choices, etc.

Since doing Malini's course I have become much more comfortable with quoting, and I no longer second-guess my (much improved!) rates. I am more confident that my skills and services are worth what I ask, and in turn this has led me to make the most of other business opportunities I might not previously have considered – things I have a little more time for, now that the financial side of things is a little more streamlined and less stressful! More than anything, Malini has completely changed my money and business mindset. I can’t recommend this course highly enough.
Editor and writer
Malini helped me to formalise my income goals and create a plan to reach them. I gained confidence in my decision to specialise as a freelance fiction editor - I knew I was in the right place, doing the right thing. I was able to examine and challenge my mindset around money and success, and learned how to truly value what I do. Within a few months of completing Malini’s course, I had raised my rates several times and was getting queries from and booking authors who are my ideal clients. Boost Your Editing Income is a must for any editor wanting to find direction and achieve their ideal working life.
Author and editor
Malini’s course has helped me reset my mindset and my business. I have finally realised that in order to have a successful business, the model needs to be correct – and what I want - to attract the right sort of customers. Malini makes suggestions about how things can be and what choices you can make. Her Boost Your Editing Income course is like a structural edit – it offers the recipient new ways to shape the story that is your business.
