Like many service providers, Jacq Fisch began her career successfully climbing the corporate ladder. Despite that success, she experienced multiple layoffs and, realizing that job security is a myth, decided that she needed to build a business of her own.
In this episode, Jacq and I are discussing the evolution of her service-based writing business.
We discuss how her business developed from solely working with clients 1:1 for writing coaching to offering her “Write Like a MOFO” writing community membership where subscribers meet to focus and get their writing done in a group setting.
Jacq talks about various aspects of her business growth, including how she is able to cap her hours and how her own need to focus on a big writing project led to the creation of a new membership group. Then she offers a key piece of advice for others interested in starting a membership for their own business.
If you are considering starting a membership service in your business, tune in to this episode for inspiration from someone who has been there and done that. I hope her story is the nudge you need to make a move in the direction that will propel your business forward!
