Become a Clear, Credible, and Persuasive Writer

Writing is the key skill for getting what you want in life.


We're All Writers Now

Effective writing is the key skill for getting what you want in today's digital world. Here's why writing effectively matters:

  • Effective writing is a skill that you can build a whole career on. Most people have jobs. But if you have a skill you can rely on, you can build a career
  • Effective writing helps you to improve your thinking. When you learn to write effectively, you can also think effectively. 
  • Effective writing helps you make an impact. Ultimately, we write for other people. And if our words resonate with readers, we can inspire action with our words.

Effective writers are...

  • Clear: Think and write clearly so people will always understand you. Gone are the days when people have to ask, "What is this person trying to say?"
  • Credible: Be seen as an authority. You're only effective as a writer if the reader believes you. 
  • Persuasive: Get what you want with words. If you can write persuasively, you can get people to act, based on what you write.

Writing is a skill that provides you value for the rest of your life.

I really benefited from the course. There are so many things that we as writers tend to ignore. But I loved how Darius touched upon those minute details that help make our writing extremely effective. The course is very methodical and straightforward. It helped me consciously make some ground rules to improve my writing.

Underneath Darius's super-effective writing advice and methodologies is an ethos of always being more, pushing beyond average, and never settling for anything less than the maximum effort. From process to output and the nuances in between - the course shows you how to be a better writer.

This is the first course I’ve ever taken on writing so I have no point of reference, but I thought it was great. The content got better with every lesson. It opened up a new perspective about writing in general and about my own style – found some key points to work on.

Why effective writing skills matter

  • Writing is an income-generating skill. People who know how to write will not be without work for long.
  • Better writing leads to better thinking. With better thinking skills, we become better problem solvers.
  • We write every day, whether it's an email, message, report, or article. Bad writing confuses people and makes them lose trust.
  • The more we write, the better we understand ourselves, and the better we get at communicating with others.

Hi, I'm Darius Foroux.

Before I started to train my writing skills, I never achieved any meaningful success in my career. After I finished grad school in 2011, I tried my hand at a lot of different things, from starting businesses to getting a job at a global IT research firm. 

None of the work and activities worked out for me. Nor did it give me any happiness or meaning. But the moment I started to learn the skill of effective writing, good things started to happen.

Since I started writing online in 2015 about the lessons I've learned, more than 125,000 people have bought my books. Readers of my blog include people from all walks of life. From Fortune 500 CEOs to health care providers to NYT best-selling authors.

In that time, I also published seven books and eight online courses, which generate six figures a year in income.

In 2022, Portfolio / Penguin acquired the rights to my upcoming book on successful investing through managing your emotions. If I never trained in writing, none of these things would have happened.

What I love most about writing is that it doesn't only have the power to improve your career, it's also the most meaningful activity I can think of. 

What I Earn As a Writer

(for inspirational purposes only)

Royalties from books

I published my first book in 2015 and published 6 more books since then. Many writers show you how many views their articles get. But views don't equal results. And you certainly can't pay your rent with views. It requires effective writing skills to create books that readers find so valuable they want to buy them.

Earnings from courses

Everything I do in my career starts with writing. These online courses are a great example of that. Without writing skills, I would not be able to create useful courses. 

While I can't guarantee you will make the same amount of money (or more), I can guarantee that writing skills will improve your career. 

When you acquire a skill that helps you provide more value, no one can ever take that away. Especially with a valuable skill like writing.
