Hi! I'm Molly McCowan.
I'm passionate about helping editorial business owners and authors kickstart their own growth and put their best work out into the world.
As a highly experienced developmental editor, business coach, and instructor, I believe everyone has a unique spark of magic to share. And I know from experience that it isn't always easy to find—much less sustain—that magic.
Running a freelance editing or proofreading business can suck the life out of you. It forces you to face every single negative thought, belief, or worry you've ever had about your abilities. Fun, right? (Spoiler alert: it's hard. Really hard.)
The same goes for writing a book. You're an expert in your field, but the writing process can trigger imposter syndrome that just. Won't. Quit. It's a rollercoaster of emotions that can quickly have you screaming, "Stop the ride! I want off!"
I specialize in helping you tap into your magic—and I bring a sense of adventure, joyfulness, and self-discovery along the way. Say hello to a freelance business that uplifts and energizes you, or a long-pondered idea that expands into a beautifully crafted nonfiction book.
Imagine what it would feel like to finally have the support you need. It's time to tap into your magic.
