The Road Less Travelled - Alternative Ways To Get Paid For Your Writing Skills
In this section, we highlight people who are successfully building businesses based on their (or other people's) writing skills.
Sandy Blackburn is an expert at researching, designing, and measuring social impact. And she does consulting work for businesses who need to prove that the work they do is actually having a positive social impact (governments love this kind of data).
Part of Sandy's process is to develop a Theory of Change (ToC) which visually shows what actions organisations are taking and how they are measuring that impact.
What, if anything, does that have to do with writing?
Sandy and her team are experts at turning those Theory of Change visuals into grant funding applications.
So if you're a grant writer or would like to get into the grant writing industry, have a listen to this podcast episode where I interview Sandy about the work she does.
