About the Course
This course offers everything a first-time freelancer needs to succeed with their budding business. Artist? Designer? Coder? Regardless of craft or career, this course can help you kickstart your freelancing career.
If you're anything like me, what's holding you back isn't a lack of work ethic or talent; it's a fear of all the unknown things that can go wrong. It's all the questions you don't know the answers to, and all the obstacles you can see on the horizon.
When I first began freelancing, I made a lot of blunders. I had more concerns than clients and I had no idea how I was supposed to do anything. Unlike a traditional job, freelancing doesn't come with a typical career path.
It was only through my mistakes that I found my way. These missteps provided me with great lessons, but I cringe at the time and energy I spent learning them. Luckily, you don't have to repeat my mistakes to learn from them.
Look, I'll be honest – you're going to have to put in time and effort to make money and grow your business. I'm not selling a get rich quick scheme. What I am offering is actionable advice, proven strategies, and years of hard-earned lessons, all condensed into an easy-to-understand series of lessons.

"Striking out on my own as a freelancer is something I want to do, but I didn’t know where to begin. The Start Freelancing course kept me from feeling overwhelmed by breaking down exactly what I need to do to initiate my career."

Freelance Writer & Editor
"I just want to thank you for the Start Freelancing course. My biggest issue has been not knowing my target client which also means I didn't know what my design focus would be, making building a portfolio very difficult. I just finished Part 4 and I finally figured out my niche and what my passion is. It feels really good! I finally know what I'm doing with my life!"

Still not sure if freelancing is for you?
That's a reasonable concern to have. It isn't for everyone.
By the end of this course, you will know if self-employment is right for you.
However, the time and effort you put into this course will feel wasted if you decide otherwise. That's why I built a FREE email course to help you find out if freelancing is for you. All that's required from you is a little bit of time and a smidgen of self-reflection.
