Start Freelancing and
Freelance Confidence

Self-study courseS, available now

Start Freelancing and Freelance Confidence are both self-study courses that you can work through at your own pace. Start Freelancing is a beginner/intermediate course, suitable even if you have no freelance writing experience. Freelance Confidence is an intermediate/advanced course, suitable for freelance writers who’ve already taken Start Freelancing or who have 6+ months of freelancing experience.

My Courses

Start Freelancing and Freelance Confidence are both available to buy at any time. Once you’ve purchased a course, you have lifetime access to future updates and new bonuses.

Both courses run on a self-study basis, though you’re welcome (and indeed encouraged!) to share your progress and questions in the private Aliventures Club group on Facebook.

Each course is split into six modules. You can tackle one per week, or you can go faster or slower: whatever works for you.

Start Freelancing and Freelance Confidence each cost $50. This includes all the course materials, bonuses, and all updates for the lifetime of the course.

What You’ll Get


Hands-on text based modules

All my courses have a strongly practical focus, with no filler or fluff. The course materials are mainly written text, rather than video, as I find that’s the format most writers prefer.


Detailed instructions and screenshots

Whenever I’m teaching you anything a bit technical, like how to register a domain name or set up a website, I include step-by-step instructions plus screenshots to make it easy.


Bonus templates and printables

Each course comes with a bunch of useful extras to help you on your freelancing journey, such as email templates, printable checklists, recommended reading, and more.


Private Facebook group for help and support

Your purchase gives you lifetime access to the Aliventures Club, a private Facebook group for my customers. You can ask questions, share your progress, and chat with me and other freelancers.

What Past Members Say

It has been a rewarding experience for me, though challenging, as it’s all so new to me. The feedback has really helped me personally. As far as course content – it’s brilliant what ever stage people are at and it’s good to be accountable as it keeps us working. You are always there for support, even by email and you have been a great help to me personally – especially when I was pulling my hair out over WP etc … you Ali Luke are a special person!

I’ve been a journalist for the past 15 years and while I’m quite disciplined when it comes to my work, I tend to procrastinate with regards to my personal writing projects. Joining the On Track Writing Course has kept me, well, on track! It has provided an easy writing structure that I can follow and made me more accountable. In fact, after I finished the two-month course, I managed to finish two pillar posts for my travel blog and the second draft for my thesis proposal.

Which course is right for you?

Start Freelancing is designed for new freelancers. It’s beginner-friendly and ideal if one of the following sounds like you:

  • You haven’t yet started freelancing but you’d like to get going in the next few weeks or months
  • You’ve been freelancing for a year or less and you’d like to make faster progress
  • You’ve been freelancing for more than a year but you’re struggling or simply want a bit of extra help

Freelance Confidence is designed for more experienced freelancers. It’s ideal if one (or more) of these sounds like you:

  • You’ve already taken Start Freelancing and you want to go further
  • You’ve been freelancing for six months or more and you’re confident about the basics
  • You’ve hit some roadblocks (like not knowing how to raise your rates) and you’d like some help 

Like everything I sell, both Start Freelancing and Freelance Confidence come with a full no-quibble money-back refund. I know it might take a little while for you to work through the materials and put what you’ve learnt into practice, so you can get a refund up to 60 days after purchase. Just email me ( and let me know you want your money back.
