How Mel Quit Her Day Job To Freelance In Bali

Today I have a case study for you that I think you’re going to totally love. My special guest is Mel Judson, who recently quit her day job, went full-time freelance, packed one suitcase and moved to Bali.

Mel is a student in my course, Organise & Automate and she’s used that course to help her set up a premium client experience, so that she could charge premium prices and take her business full-time.

Yes, she has made her dream a total reality! I’m honoured that I’ve been able to help her with my course and I’m now even more honoured to share this chat I had with her, where she shares her tips on how you can quit your job, start your design business, and start living the life that you crave.

How To Create Your 2019 Freelance Income Plan

Over the last few weeks, we’ve talked about why you should create a freelance income plan for 2018.

(Basically, so you can confidently walk into next year knowing EXACTLY how you’re going to make your money and have your most profitable year yet!)

But it’s time to talk about HOW you can create a freelance income plan that outlines how you’re going to hit your income goal, step-by-step and month-by-month.

Before we talk about that, I want to tell you about how my own plan helped me triple my freelancing income.

Have you ever asked yourself, “how much money should I be making?”

Or, have you ever compared your income to another designer?

After you did, you may have...

  • Gasped with shock because the designer you compared yourself to was making x3 what you make.
  • Poured yourself a glass of wine because your business suddenly didn’t seem as successful as you thought it was.

We shouldn’t compare our income to others but we do because it can make us feel good about ourselves - IF the other person seems to be ‘less successful’ than we are.

Do you wish you could make more money from freelancing?

I used to wish for that, too. Two years into my freelance design business, I came close to looking for a day job. I LOVED being my own boss but it wasn’t bringing in the kind of income I had hoped for when I started my business.

In the beginning, freelancing gave me freedom of time and location but not financial freedom.

I wanted to be able to jump on a plane and go and work from somewhere exotic for however long I wanted.

I wanted to be able to invest in software that would help me save time and stress less.

I wanted to take courses that would help me take my business to the next level but MAN, I just didn’t have the money.

Then, things changed.

I went from having zero clients to being booked solid for six months and I tripled my income in
less than a year.
