Don’t Read If You’re a Developer

Fundamentals, my fellow ruffian, fundamentals.

Not “super slick” and “epic” gimmicks…

Or, shiny new “hacks”.

Boring, but proven, fundamentals.

The more I spin around this little blue planet, the more I’m reminded that… when you focus on fundamentals over all the bright, shiny “hacks” and “techniques” the Medium-heads love to preach about… everything gets a helluva lot easier.

Take this comment I just got from a non-coder:

“John im not into coding at all but Ive found your course [Upwork 101] to be insanely helpful even though Im only a few parts in. The research section alone blew my mind just now as i have multiple skills (Video editing, writing, social media ect). Upon following your advice I just started researching and its shocking the difference between social media/marketing (what i will be studying soon) vs a skill i have (video editing). Saw examples of guys doing marketing who made over 500k on upwork [insert mind blown emoji]…The research step alone is an eye opener. Cant wait to get on with the rest of the course!”

I get asked this all the time:

“Does your Upwork course work for non-developers.”

The short answer is: Yes!

That’s because I’m not teaching you a bunch of gimmicks or “techniques” that only work in one industry, at one time, for one person. Instead, I’m teaching you the fundamentals of marketing applied to freelancing.

And, that’s something that’ll work in any industry.

At any time.

For anybody.

And, that’s the kind of stuff you should look for… not all this gimmicky, bubble gum bull crap… that worked for that one guy with that one thing that one time. That’s a rocky road to hell.

Anyway, if you’re up for learning the “boooring” fundamentals…

That are a helluva lot more likely to put the benjis in your pantalones…

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING

Thabo Motsoahae

John is one of the best instructors I have come across, I learned a lot from his online tutorials.

Sukh Plaha

John is a fantastic and patient tutor, who is not just able to share knowledge and communicate it very effectively – but able to support one in applying it. However, I believe that John has a very rare ability to go further than just imparting knowledge and showing one how to apply it. He is able to innately provoke one’s curiosity when explaining and demonstrating concepts, to the extent that one can explore and unravel their own learning journey. Thanks very much John!

Bob Patterson

Not only is John a very talented programmer and developer, he is also an excellent communicator. He has a talent for taking complex subjects and communicating them in terms that anyone can understand. This is a rare combination. This ability has enabled me to take my skills and knowledge to the next level. Thank you John for for all that you do.

Lewis Howes

John is amazing at building membership sites. He converted one of my sites over from it’s existing (hardly working) platform over to the clean and simple to use WishList membership platform. I highly recommend using John and WishList for any of your membership site needs.

Ray Edwards

I recommend John every chance I get. If every person I worked with were as committed to excellence, punctuality, value, and unquestionable integrity… the world would be a better place. Highest recommendation.

On the Freelancing on Upwork course: “This is by far the best course i have watched on Skillshare!! Thank you so much.”
