The Struggle and Why YOU Should Take This Course

Early in my career, I wasted months trying to learn more skills to write winning proposals. Despite all of my efforts, I was completely lost because:

  • I lacked a formal background in proposal writing 
  • The courses didn't focus on writing skills, only theory.
  • I didn't have insider tips on how to under proposal formatting

To become a better proposal writing professional, I went down the rabbit hole to understand what it takes to build successful proposals from the inside out. I interviewed thought leaders within the industry. I learned the behaviors and habits of successful proposal writers. Empowered with this knowledge, I've written proposals that helped bring in over five million dollars of dollars in work in the last three years.

Within 3 years, I went from a complete newbie to a great proposal writer. Today, I've created the proposal writing process for many successful businesses including my own.

I created the Proposal Writing Certification Course with instructor feedback so that no one else had to go through the painful experience that I went through to become more experienced and create winning proposals.

The Proposal Writing Certification Course was created for aspiring proposal writers or people who want to generate lots of revenue through proposals. In this course, I teach: fundamentals of proposal writing, how to write a great proposal, how to format proposals, and how to get proposal writing clients. 

"To be successful as a proposal writer, you need to learn fundamental proposal writing skills. I’ve compiled everything I’ve learned into this Proposal Writing Certification Course to put you on the fast track towards success."


"I wanted to let you know I signed an offer for my first official technical writing job yesterday! Thanks for your wonderful class and great resources." - 5/5 stars

"While I started the program with zero experience, I realized learning the fundamental concepts isn't as insurmountable as I initially expected as long as I put in the effort to learn. This program is the one-stop-shop for all technical writing."

"Thank you for taking the time to review my work and for the constructive feedback, really appreciate it. And thank you for this great course, I will be referencing it often for sure."

 Christian Quiles, Technical Writing student who now works as a Technical Writer

“The capstone will make a great addition to my writing portfolio. I didn’t realize how much experience companies expect from their technical communication applicants, so having the writing samples and insight from this course helps A TON as someone with only one year of full-time work experience. You guys nailed it.”
