We'll show you how.

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

Hi, I'm Rick

I'm a freelance writer & 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, Freelancer's Academy. A system dedicated to the folks who have dreams of freedom, and just need a guiding (and expert) hand to show them how to get there.

And no it's not only for freelance writers.

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 a recovering emergency room nurse. 
An RN for over 2 decades, but who's counting? 
I’ve penned and published in a few of the biggest magazines and journals around,  ghost written for prolific 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".
