219: Conquering Imposter Syndrome as a Nurse Writer — A Plan, Produce, Profit Success Story

conquering imposter syndrome as a Nurse Writer: A Plan, Produce, Profit Success Story


We all feel like imposters unless you are a narcissistic megalomaniac! Haha. Every nurse writer has been at that point of needing their first sample, reaching out to their first potential client, writing their first paid article, and getting it back with a bunch of edits. Just do your best and learn as you go. I learned too not to lowball myself. Pricing is very hard in the beginning, but we definitely shouldn't be spending our precious time writing for 1 cent a word for someone on Upwork. Once you have a few articles in your portfolio, know your worth as a nurse writer. That RN, LPN, or NP behind our name increases the clients' Google authority and automatically makes us more valuable as writers. Never forget that!

In today’s episode of The Savvy Scribe Podcast, we have an inspiring success story to share with you. Tune in as we delve into the journey of April Rowe, one of our brilliant nurse writers. From the moment she first contemplated writing content, to overcoming imposter syndrome which led her to achieve her current status as a thriving nurse writer and proud owner of a flourishing writing business, April’s story is sure to captivate and motivate. Don’t miss out on this empowering episode!

I can't believe it's already been a year! I am so thankful I found you and took your PPP course. You opened so many doors for me. I now know that if I wanted to go full-time as a writer, I could do it. It's fun too. I love learning about new topics that I get assigned. The Nurse Blake Magazine is extra fun, though! I get to interview him and other nurses, and I will be going on his upcoming NurseCon at Sea cruise to the Bahamas in a couple of weeks to conduct interviews onboard. I never thought I would get such an epic nurse writing opportunity!
