Hi! I’m Abbi Perets, and I’m excited that you’re here!
For the past 20 years, I’ve worked as a freelance writer with some of the world’s biggest companies — and I have five kids, including one with special needs. Now I teach other moms just like you how to get started in freelance writing and earn a real living from home.
You want a meaningful career that pays well — but you don’t want to sacrifice your family.
- You’ve always loved writing.
- You want to be at home with your kids.
- You love the idea of working for yourself.
- You think it would be amazing to get paid to write.
- How can you turn your passion into money?
- How do you build a business when you have kids at home?
- How do you make enough money to leave your day job?
- How the heck do you even find clients?
I first started my freelance writing business when I had my first baby. I was living abroad, in a tiny town that wasn’t even hooked up to the electrical grid. And then I had four more babies including one with significant special needs, moved internationally and within the U.S., and then internationally again. I built my business by working 20-30 minutes at a time, with lots of interruptions, using simple, straightforward strategies that anyone can follow.
You can make money as a freelance writer from anywhere in the world, even with small children.
Maybe you also have a child with special needs, and desperately need flexibility in your life. Freelance writing meant that I could take my son to speech, occupational, physical, and developmental therapy appointments five days a week for six years — and still maintain a steady income.
When my children were smaller, I didn’t have a lot of time to devote to work, and I was still able to earn consistent income. You can earn $2000-$4000/month or more from home as a freelance writer — even if you only work about 20 hours a week. You can do this, even if your kids are actual human children who get sick and break things and constantly ask you where you keep the ice.
It's not always easy, and it takes actual work, so if you're looking for the magic bag of seeds, you won't find it here. You will find practical advice, straight talk about what works and what doesn't, and plenty of support.
