My husband and I have been desperate for a way to make a few extra dollars and pay off our college loans. I knew I was a good writer, but I had kind of given up hope of ever using this skill to help us financially! Then I found Contena! Within two weeks of starting, I had my first job. The coaching & website is super easy to navigate. We are hopeful again about paying our debt, but most importantly, I'm happier because I'm writing again!

The resources at Contena are a gold mine! I've managed to find several great listings on Contena that suit my skills and pay well. I'm constantly learning from the Academy, and I feel incredibly focused because of the straightforward training. I've decided to build and launch a website for my writing services, and I already have clients lining up.

My Contena Coach has been amazing. I've managed to quit my job and become a full-time freelance writer in less than 6 months. Thank you Contena for helping me achieve this dream :)

In two weeks of using Contena, I've already started getting paid for my writing. Before this, I had no experience with freelance writing, whatsoever. I feel great working from home and know that I'll soon be able to quit my part-time job in retail, and start full-time freelance writing!

I’ve always wanted to be a professional writer - to be published and earn at least a part of my income from writing - but it remained a distant daydream until I signed up with Contena.

Today, I got paid for my first freelance job, and I’m not even finished with Contena academy! I decided to put my pitch to work right after completing Module 5. Not only did I get paid, but I had a lot of fun doing the work, and I added to my published portfolio.

Contena gave me the confidence and tools to turn my dream into something real for me, today. I couldn’t recommend it more!

I landed my first professional writing job through Contena. I went from having just a few samples and no paid experience to writing a minimum of 12 articles a month for a website with over 3.2 million subscribers! Special thanks to my writing coach Amanda!

I have only been with Contena for a week, and already I have landed a ghostwriting job. I think that the pitch crafted from Contena Academy's recipe really sealed the deal! It is a great first gig, and I know it will help me grow my business and better my craft!
