Navigating the freelance world can be tricky...
But it gets a whole lot easier
with a mentor at your side.
You started freelancing because you wanted to be your own boss, get paid to do what you love, and work from the comfort of your bed. I mean, workspace. *Cough cough*
There’s just one problem.
Freelancing is suuuuper stressful.
You want to freelance, but you don't even know where to start.
Finding clients is a game everyone seems to understand but you.
You're not making enough money, but you're afraid no one will hire you if you raise your rates.
When you finally book a client, they're late providing you with EVERYTHING - from the files you need so you can start their project, to the feedback you need throughout the project.
And getting them to pay you on time is like tearing yourself away from a 5-hour binge session of Stranger Things: not going to happen. *That show is awesome.*
You could leave all the payment-chasing and following-up to someone else and just collect your payslip at the end of each month. Seems simpler, right?
Wondering how I read your thoughts just then?
Well, I’m no Jedi mindreader. But I understand exactly how you feel because I’ve been there.
I became a full-time freelance graphic designer in 2012 with no design degree and zero business experience. Just a pretty blog and a handful of lovely readers who liked my blog design and were willing to pay me to design theirs.
Quitting my day job to freelance was one of the greatest days of my life. What wasn't so great was working 50+ hour weeks and only earning £1500 per month from it.
And that's when I had clients! When I didn't, I was trying All The Things to find work: Upwork, blogging, video, guest posting, interviews, Instagram marketing... You name it, I have dabbled in ALL of it.
You don't need to hustle like a madwoman to build a profitable business. You need to work smarter, not harder. You need to plan, prioritize and simplify.
I went from being a tired, stressed-out wreck working 50+ hours a week and only earning £1500 per month for my efforts, to working no more than three days per week and having £9k months.
I did it and I want to help you do it too, except you'll miss out the hustling bit. Sound good?
