As the snow in Montreal recedes, the skeletons of bicycles that didn't make it through the long, hard winter are revealed...

"Perception of value" has a huge impact on how much you get paid as a freelance copywriter. #freelance

A little inspiration for you early on a Monday morning...
They're billed as 'the youngest string quartet ever.' The kids began playing in The Joyous String Quartet when they were four years old.

Freelancers shouldn't wait to be given work. They should reach out to prospective clients with new ideas... #freelance

All about writing for the web, and freelancing...and coffee.
Introduction

I have been earning my living as a freelance writer, copywriter and speaker for over 30 years.

During those years I have worked as a freelance copywriter for Citibank, Apple, Chrysler, Franklin Mint, TV Guide, Diners Club International, J. Paul Getty Trust, MSN.com, Encyclopedia Britannica, New York Times, Reuters, WebEx, and many others.

As an expert on writing for the web, I have spoken at numerous conferences and have conducted in-house seminars and training sessions for many companies, including: Yahoo!, Intuit, Walt Disney Attractions, Association of American Publishers, Novartis Pharma, John Deere, National Cancer Institute and Merck & Co.

And I'm the author of ‘Net Words: Creating High-Impact Online Copy'. Published in 2001, it’s still a good and valuable read today.

In recent years I have morphed slowly from being a freelance writer and copywriter to becoming a teacher and coach.

I now write programs and books to help other online writers and copywriters, and do an increasing amount of coaching.

Outside of my mainstream work, I also have a thing for coffee. Hence my site for coffee lovers, Coffee Detective. On the business side I offer coffee writing and consulting services through ZeroDecaf Marketing.

I live in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
