In 2010, Steve Maurer turned to writing to earn extra income on the side. His goal was to make up income lost from a cut back in hours.

That first year he wrote over 400 articles, earning roughly $5 a piece. Steve was heartened to know that people would pay for his writing, but the pace was grueling. Something had to change.

Steve made some changes, and now earns $200 an hour and has doubled his writing income every year since 2013. In this live interview, Steve talks about his business success and shares his take on:

  • Building your writing business while still working a day job.
  • The keys to earning more per project… and per hour.
  • The most useful tools for landing clients.
  • The importance of continuing education.
  • And more.

  • Heather,
    Thanks so much for this inspiring interview with Steve. It helped me because I am new at this and my own worst critic. I’ve been taking classes and trying to get up the courage to get started. Since I retired four years ago, I’ve had the need to do something but not knowing what, so I’ve been floundering. Last year freelance writing crossed my path, so I thought that I’d pursue it even though I’ve only done writing for my job. Steve helped me know that I don’t have to be perfect and that I should not concentrate on being a full-time student which is what I’ve been doing. I just find it hard to believe that someone will pay me to write for them. My goal is to supplement my retirement income and I want to get started so I am going to get to it.
    Thanks again,
