Is your editing business successful?

If you’re like a lot of editors, you may have a hard time answering this question with any specifics. You may have a vague sense of how your business is doing, and you might even feel comfortable with that level of uncertainty. But having real, hard data about how much you work, where your work comes from, and how much you earn for different types of projects or clients can empower you to take charge of your business and steer it in the direction that you want it to go.

In this six-hour workshop, Lana Okerlund will give an overview of the performance measurement cycle—a widely used concept in the business world—and apply it to the business of editing.

New and mid-career editors will find this workshop most useful, though editors of all experience levels are welcome.
