Chapter 3: 2011 to 2014
Marketing & Business Consultant
By the end of 2010 I was working only part-time and remotely with UTMB and had sold my medical writing training business, so I decided to start a new company, Light Edge Productions.
The services I offered included Video Production, Digital Marketing, Web Design, Content Marketing and Social Media Marketing as well as Business and Marketing Strategy.
During this time I trained with the Crankset Group in Denver to become a business consultant and went to Vancouver Film School to obtain a diploma in Entertainment Business Management.
Chapter 2: 2006 – 2010
Wrote an ebook called Becoming a Medical Writer: How to Launch a Successful Career Writing About Medicine and Health and a to promote it.
Created a landing page and a sales letter for the ebook, which sold hundreds of copies for $29.00.
In 2009 I moved to Canada and in 2010 I sold the business, to a medical training company in California.
It was generating $32K in passive income.
Created a successful email drip for people who downloaded the free sample chapter of the ebook. The list grew to more than 2,500 qualified subscribers who became loyal customers.
In 2007, I scaled the offerings by creating online courses that went deeper in the topics of the ebook. Implemented a successful upselling strategy.
I promoted the courses and the ebook through my own blog, guest blogging, building community with Ning (this was before Facebook pages became popular) and participation in forums.
