Hi, Lori Osterberg here.
It hit me when I was talking with a friend. She said, “I wish I could write like you. You write in so many ways, and make it look so easy. You’re selling books and products. You don’t have to worry about jobs and what’s going to happen when we move forward. You’re going to do well in this new world. I wish I had that. I’m scared of what my future holds.”
I comforted my friend, which is what she (and so many others) needs right now. I get it; these are scary times.
But I have to agree with her. Writing IS a career that’s always been here. And it will be for a long time to come.
I didn’t start out wanting to be a writer. Honestly, I never even considered it.
I worked in banking. Moved to accounting. And auditing.
But it didn’t take me long to realize my dream didn’t involve working in a corporate environment. I was meant to pave my own path. So I started up a photography business with my husband. (I know. Complete right brain/left brain thing going on there, right?)
We decided to specialize in wedding photography, and built a website to market to people around the world. This was back in the mid 1990s – we were one of the first to do it. The dot commers found us and hired us to photograph some of the most spectacular weddings around the country. When people asked – “How’d you do that?” – I answered by writing a book on it. Studio Without Walls was born.
So was my desire to become a writer.
I worked with a traditional publisher to write Studio Without Walls. That led me to:
- Self publish a color coffee table book I created with a publishing house in Singapore.
- Start up a blog to write about the business of photography
- Become a columnist on small business marketing with the Denver Business Journal
- Self publish over a dozen ebooks on Amazon teaching the business of photography
- Begin copywriting for other business owners in creative industries
- Ghostwrite and ghostblog for dozens of small businesses
- Write seven romance novels
- Write multiple books and inforproducts on women reinventing their lives after 40
- Create thousands of articles for my own personal blogs
- Author articles on dozens of sites and magazines, both online and print
For over a decade, I’ve made my money exclusively from my writing. I love what I do. I love writing.
Then 2020 happened.
I’m a part of a coaching program, with Facebook groups and live trainings every single week. As I was sitting listening to a class, my coach spoke about creating a business that was future-proof.
Lights went on, bells started dinging … I knew at that moment I had a job to do.
I went back to that conversation I’d had recently with a friend.
“I wish I could write like you. You write in so many ways, and make it look so easy. You’re selling books and products. You don’t have to worry about jobs and what’s going to happen when we move forward. I want your job!”
This is a job that’s easy to jump into. More importantly, the writing industry is booming! Just look at all the different writer classes you find online. I know. I’ve taken a lot of them myself.
But here’s the thing. A lot of people jump into writing without thinking about the long term. They don’t think how it will fit into their lives. They don’t think beyond “one epic book” or getting a writing gig with “just one client”. They focus narrowly on one specific thing without looking at the big picture.
They don’t consider how important it is to hone in on their craft. They don’t contemplate possibilities. They never consider how writing could be more … how writing may just be all they need from this point forward.
I’m going to change that right now.

Is this for me?
I hear you, thinking: Is this for me? Let me answer a few questions you may have to find out.
I love writing, but can I really make a full time income from it?
Yep. I’ve been writing for over a decade. It’s my only source of income. And I LOVE what I do!
I’ve never thought about starting a business before. Why now?
Why not? If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that everything can disappear on a dime. I’m a full believer in multiple streams of income. What if you could start this as a way to share your passion with the world instead of thinking of it as your full time income? What if it’s your side hustle for a while? Maybe you’ll use it in retirement. Maybe it will replace your career. Isn’t it nice you might have choices if you go down a new path?
Why should I worry about finding my voice?
Because it makes you that much more successful at writing! There’s a difference between someone who throws a few words down on paper, and someone who takes the time to share stories from deep down inside. That’s the difference between an average writer, and someone who steps up to be a writer or an author.
