Do you love being a freelance editor but hate not knowing where you’ll get your next client?
Being great at what you do doesn’t always translate into being good at finding your ideal clients.
But the good news is that you really can fill your editing business with a full roster of clients who value your work and pay you well, even if you’ve always struggled to attract steady work in the past. And my worksheet will get you started!
In this worksheet, you will:
- discover three things that you can do right now to help you find clients
- learn how to overcome mindset issues that could be holding you back, even if you don’t realise it.
- find out why what I share is different from all the other marketing advice you’ve read until now.
Thank you very much for this wonderful resource!

Malini's worksheet helped me think about my choices, feelings, and aspirations in the context of my freelance editing business. The questions served as simple and thought-provoking trigger points for reflection. I found it very useful to note down the responses, reframe some of my thoughts, and create actionable tasks to grow my business and help more clients.
Who am I and how do I know this works?
Hi, I'm Dr. Malini Devadas. I completed a PhD in neuroscience and worked in medical research before realising I enjoyed the writing more than the lab work. I've been a professional editor since 2004 and set up my own editing business in 2013. But in the beginning, I learned the hard way that without the right knowledge and the right mindset, it is difficult to attract the right clients and earn a comfortable income as a freelance editor. After working with some wonderful coaches and growing my business well beyond my early expectations, I decided to become a certified coach so that I could coach other editors to experience the success, ease and fulfillment I’ve been able to create for myself.
You don’t have to keep worrying about getting clients or wondering if you’ll ever be able to depend on your freelance editing income. A fully booked business is within your reach, and I believe you’re ready to grab it!
Marketing my services is so much easier now.

When I started working as an editor I was scared that having a niche would limit my ability to find clients. This worksheet has helped me define what kind of editor I wanted to be and who I wanted to work with. It was such a simple process, but by the end, I had turned my fears into strengths and put my niche into a more concrete form. I know who I'm writing to and what to say to them. And best of all, it only takes me a few minutes to promote my services every day.
