Are you a blogger who is tired of spinning your hamster wheel and not accomplishing your goals? Are you struggling to build real, authentic community and friendships with other bloggers who have the same goals as you? Is blogging a true passion for you that you’re ready to invest in and make worth your while?
We are so thrilled to offer a brand new opportunity for bloggers who are ready to learn the nitty gritty of how blogging as a part-time or full-time career works. We’ve found much success and satisfaction working together as a supportive team through the last 18 months, and we’re ready to expand and share with a small group everything we’ve learned so that you can reach your ongoing goals just like we are!
What’s being offered
- Membership to the exclusive In Good Company Facebook page (15 group members max)
- Live monthly 90-minute recorded calls where group leaders will cover predetermined topics as well as questions you ask ahead of time
This is for you if…
-you keep reading that you need a community as a blogger (you do) and you have questions about blogging, but you have no idea who to go to.
-you’re struggling to build community on your own with other bloggers who are like-minded.
