About 

Betsy Baker is the founder of BetsyJBaker.com, dedicated to teaching freelancers, consultants, coaches and other solo service professionals how to create and leverage an online presence, quit trading dollars for hours and serve more clients, realize more income and enjoy more free time.

Betsy is the creator of the Monetize Your Expertise ™ system that has helped teach thousands how to move from a one-to-one business model to one-to-many based on packaging and selling information rather than time.

Frustrated with the feast or famine in her own consulting practice, Betsy began a website in 2010 to supplement her income featuring information products and service packages using her unique grant writing talent. She quickly discovered that instead of offering "done for you" services, her new way of offering her expertise allowed her much more freedom and much greater income.
