Freelancing is the future. Imagine having complete career independence where you set your own pay and work on your own terms. In the modern gig economy everybody either already is or soon could be a freelancer. The only question is, will you create a true freelancing business that supports your financial, professional and personal goals? Or will you slip into a reactive, low-paying, hand-to-mouth freelancing ghetto that many succumb to?

There are as many types of freelancing businesses as there are types of cars. Are you going to settle for the 20 year old jalopy or the brand new Maserati?  

This course will teach you how to establish a strong foundation for your freelancing career so that you can continually grow, increase fees, attract better customers and clients, and command respect from all you deal with.  

Whether you are an accidental freelancer or one entering the field on purpose, this course will provide you with shortcuts to success. Nothing good happens overnight, but you don't have to go through a multi-year, trial-and-error process before coming up with a system that works for you and your lifestyle.  

Freelancing done poorly can make you end up feeling like an over-tired, stressed, impoverished indentured servant. Freelancing done the right way can give you a lifestyle of creative and professional control coupled with financial freedom.
