Individual mentorship programs designed for new and aspiring freelance copywriters who want their questions about how to efficiently run a successful business answered — with specifics, support, and certainty.
I recently had an aspiring copywriter reach out and inquire about my 1:1 mentorship services, and as soon as I read her email, I immediately abandoned the copy I had written for this page to replace it with her words, because she explained it so freaking perfectly.
"The copywriting world is so vast," she explained. "There is so much content out there (courses, books, coaches, podcasts, blogs, etc), but at this point, I'm eager to learn from someone who is already doing exactly what *I* want to be doing."
AND THAT'S PRECISELY HOW I SERVE MY MENTEES.
Want to stop trial-and-error-ing your way through your copywriting journey, so you can spend less time working on your biz's back-end and more time on the fun part of freelancing
Are fed up with searching through countless freebies, and blogs, and videos, and pins, and... ugh. You just want all the actually-relevant-to-you answers delivered to you on a silver platter.
Wish you could be supported by an actual person who has done this before about how to do all the things, like a big-sis for business to guide you through the mistakes to avoid & best practices to follow

Graduated from having tons of questions about everything, to trusting their own intuition (and skills!) to feel confident making great business choices and getting clients.
Start off strong by getting the back-end of your biz in order, with a lesson on which tools, time-savers, and to-do list items will help your business thrive.
Figure out the most strategic ways to set up your services and how to appropriately price and position them to attract more ideal clients.
Because, let's be real, you probably spend so much time helping your clients with theirs, that you haven't yet the sweet spot with your own.
Learn everything from how to respond to leads and structure your discovery calls, to sending proposals and client questionnaires.
The two things we all want more of as biz owners. Understand both how to work less & earn more, and how to manage your freelance finances.
Learn how to provide your clients the best possible experience by swiping my strategies for my entire client process, start to finish.
Throughout my time spent mentoring fellow copywriters one-on-one, I've found that creating a custom curriculum based on each person's individual needs returns the most success, because it allows them to get the most custom educational experience as possible.
Before we get started, I'll both send you a questionnaire and instruct you to send me a hold-nothing-back brain dump about what you want to learn, so I can ensure that I'm building your personalized curriculum based on the things you actually need support and guidance with.
...or whatever else you need assistance with!
Between the biweekly consulting calls, the internal resources you get access to, and the unlimited amount of 1:1 support you receive, the BTL custom mentorship program is perfect for new copywriters who want personalized support, tangible advice, and helpful resources for advancing their freelance copywriting career.
If that sounds like you, I’d love to be your mentor! Please note that I only work with one mentee in this capacity each quarter, so I can guarantee my full dedication and attention.
Or, rather, what I like to call "the 1:1 mentorship program for impatient copywriters," because it's the perfect resource for copywriters who want intensive support from a mentor, without having to spend 3 months together.
The Copywriter VIP Week is all the great parts about 1:1 mentorship, condensed into one week together, so you can start your freelance copywriting journey ASAP rocky.
book your vip week
The curriculum that I build out for you based on your brain dump will vary based on what you hope to learn from me, but whether you choose the 3-month 1:1 mentorship or the copywriter VIP week, you'll begin by completing your onboarding materials, then we'll have our kickoff call, and then our fun will begin!
We'll work together to build a solid foundation for your freelance copywriting brand, so you can feel completely confident in all of your client work (and client experience), business management, back-end systems, and more. Having a mentor is an invaluable resource during this time of growth.
I only work with one 1:1 mentee at a time, in order to ensure that I'm able to provide you with as much individualized support as you need. In addition to our calls, you also have unlimited access to me for questions, feedback, or—and this is the most common—vent sessions.
Aside from having a built-in, best-friend-level support system, the Notion dashboard is arguably the best part. It's full to the brim of resources you'll love, from cold pitch scripts and sample client emails, to questionnaires and onboarding docs, to training videos... the Iist goes on.
You get out what you put in, baby. In terms of time spent working on implementing what you've learned, that's up to you. I do often assign optional homework to help you get started actually DOING the things I'm teaching you, but you're not *required* to do anything—however, it's important to note that you'll get the best results if you prioritize what we're working on.
If you'd like to hear firsthand all that my past mentees have accomplished, they'd be happy to tell you all about it! Send me a DM to let me know you're thinking about working together in a mentorship capacity, and I'll give you their contact information so you can reach out directly and ask—totally confidentially—about their experience!
Throughout the past two years, I've mentored new copywriters, aspiring copywriters, not-sure-where-they're-at copywriters, seasoned copywriters, and copywriters that have chosen to extend their mentorship with me month after month after month.
And despite all of their varying niches, goals, and experiences, all of them have achieved the exact same result: confidence.
Confidence in their skills, in their processes, in their client relationships, in their systems, but most importantly, confidence in themselves, and their ability to succeed.
And we 100% achieved that goal. The fact that Sara held me accountable and lit a fire under me to actually get stuff done was an added bonus."
