Behind the Scenes of My 3 Day Workweek

I have a secret that, when revealed on my Instagram Story a while ago, blew peoples mind.

Ready for it?!

I only work 3 days a week.

Yep! But here’s where it gets interesting…

I make more money working 3 days a week than when I worked 5 days a week.

If you’re curious how I made that happen, listen to this episode using the player above or read this episode below!

We’ll cover exactly how I made sure my profits went up even though my work hours went down, how you can do the same thing, the planners I use to help me be super productive on the days I do work, and so much more.

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.

The thought of creating an income plan fills most freelancers with dread.

Why?

It’s usually because:

  • They tried creating a plan in the past but they couldn’t stick to it.

  • The thought of planning anything just seems booooring.

If you’ve struggled to stick to your income goals and plan in the past, I’m going to explain where you went wrong in today’s post.

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.
