Writing. Donuts. Tequila. (not always in that order)

Hi, I'm Rick

I'm a ghostwriter for 7-figure companies and leaders who know what they wanna say, they just don't know how to say it.

I'm also the creator of the wickedly famous, Freelance Writers Academy. A silly simple method dedicated to the folks who have dreams of freedom, and just need a guiding (and expert) hand to show them how to get there.

The fact is, I love to write. I write about about the freelancer economy , what it means to be unemployed and unemployable, personal development and how I've achieved my dreams in very UN-conventional ways.

All through the lens of someone who has dedicated his life to helping others.
You see, I'm also an emergency room nurse with over 2 decades of experience...but who's counting? 
I’ve penned and published in a few of the biggest magazines and journals around,  ghost written for high profile CEO's and founders, and have written about my nonconformist journey from your basic "staff nurse" to becoming a founder of an 8-figure company that was listed as one of the "U.S. Top 10 Companies".
“I stopped thinking the way other people think a long time ago. You gotta think like you think.” – Rocky Balboa

Nobody owes you anything...

So as a freelancer, creative, or solopreneur, you've got to get out there and grab it... 

Join our group of delinquents, derelicts, dawdlers, gangsters, troublemakers and generally speaking, people who are sick of the status quo here... 

We'll show you how.

"Don’t bend; don’t water it down; don’t try to make it logical; don’t edit your own soul according to the fashion. Rather, follow your most intense obsessions mercilessly."
