Have you been told that it takes years of hustling and stumbling to make a good living as a freelance writer?

That it takes blood, sweat, tears and the eye of a black spotted newt to land your first client?

Well, I say NOPE.

There’s a shorter and less painful way to grow your freelance writing business, and you don’t have to sell your first born to learn it.


The Grow Your Freelancing Community

A supportive group of freelance writers, based in Israel, who are growing their businesses together!

Hey there, I’m Leigh.

Besides writing copy for a wide range of Israeli tech companies, I help English speakers in Israel start and grow freelance writing businesses.

Sounds cool Leigh, but why should I listen to you?

Reason #1: I’m just like you.

A Mom: Wants to be around for my kids as much as possible.

A Doer: Thrives on creating, adding value to the world and having a ‘thing’ of her own.

An Expat: Deals with the challenges of building a new life and business in a foreign country.

Reason #2: I’m a freelance writer for some of Israel’s leading companies

In 2009, I decided to start my own freelance writing business after working as an in-house copywriter in Israel for 8 years. Within just a few months, I replaced my full-time salary with paid freelancing jobs and then exceeded it. Working as a freelancer has allowed me to earn a great income, while enjoying enough flexibility to spend quality time with my kids and make trips back to Canada to visit family. 

Praise from some of my freelance writing clients:

“I can’t even count the hundreds of fantastic sales emails Leigh has written for our brands over the years. She brings the conversions, time and time again.”  Itai Frieberger, COO, 888 Holdings

“Leigh knows how to take our product’s highly sophisticated features and turn them into clear benefits that resonate with our customers and motivate them to take action.” – Daphna Beer-Gabel Rubin, Senior Director of CRM, Payoneer.

“Leigh and her team dig deep to understand exactly how the mechanics of our games and promotions work.  They know how to promote our games and challenges clearly to our players without losing our brand’s tone of voice.” – Guy Lahav, VP Marketing & Monetization ,Playtika

Reason #3: I’ve helped many freelance writers achieve success

“I was an in-house writer and editor for many years when I started working with Leigh.  I knew it was timeto branch off on my own, but I didn’t know how. Leigh turned the overwhelming idea of building my own business from scratch into a step-by-step plan that worked. I suddenly had the confidence to pitch my services, submit price quotes and close deals. In a just a few months, I was a fully booked freelance writer, working from home and on my own terms. Leigh had a bigger impact on my career than I imagined. If you need a freelance writing mentor, she is definitely your woman!”

Rachel Segal, Freelance Writer

I am coming to the end of my month of working with Leigh Hartzman and cannot recommend her enough.  I am not a new writer, but am a new “serious” freelancer and need guidance with transitioning from freelancing as a sideline to freelancing as my full-time business. Leigh has helped me with so many questions, offered so much advice and made me realize how much I can do. She has been really great with helping me to set my prices and in replying to clients in a much better way than I was previously doing.

Thanks so much Leigh!

Danielle Max, Freelance Writer

Leigh mentored me last year and I’ve been doing very well with my writing business since then. I’ve worked with a broad range of tech clients over the last year and my client base keeps growing. At first, I just knew that I wanted to write. I didn’t know how to turn that desire into a business that generated income. Leigh clarified all that for me. Because of her, I got the ball rolling. Really thank you again Leigh, as you were the one to get me started!
