Hi, I'm Carrie and I've been a full-time freelance blogger since 2013. Before that I spent over a decade working as a small business accountant and Tax Specialist, so I know the exact steps to reach financial success. But I don't have everything figured out. In 2012 I paid off all my debts and then quit my job a year later. Since then I launched my blog carefulcents.com as a way to help freelancers overcome financial mountains and connect with clients who value their work.

Whether you’re just looking to quit your job, launch a side hustle, or take your full-time freelance business to the next level, I’d love to help you navigate the confusing stuff so you can reach your income goals!

I emailed Arianna Huffington directly on August 14, 2015. On August 23, 2015, she emailed me back and said, and I quote, "We would love to feature your voice on the Huffington Post." How awesome is that?! I have worked with TONS of material, sought information from different places, but yours worked. She loved my pitch. :) THANK YOU! -- Adam Davis (contributor profile)

Frequently Asked Questions

When does the course start and finish?
The course training starts now and never ends! It is completely self-paced, so you decide when you start and when you finish. You can access each module individually or go through the entire course step-by-step.
What exactly do I say in my pitch?
In this course I cover everything about crafting the perfect pitch. I explain exactly how to come up with the best idea and your unique angle, how to pitch them in a way that gets the Huffington Post editor's attention and the direct email addresses to make sure your pitch gets to the right place.
Have you actually gotten new customers from your contributions to the Huffington Post?
Yes! I break down the exact steps I take to turn media mentions into paying clients and more sales. In fact, I talk about how contributing to the Huffington Post gave me my first paid speaking gig in San Francisco.
What happens after you're accepted, are you a permanent contributor or do you have to re-pitch each time?
Once your pitch is accepted you'll be able to become a regular contributor. No more pitching! I dive into more details of what to expect once your pitch is published and how to access your Huffington Post blogger portal.
