Fridays Off: The BEST Way To Become A Full-Time Developer

He asked me this exact thing just two days ago.

In fact, 1000s of developers from all over the world, from every walk of life and in every kind of financial situation have asked me this exact same thing.

I love these guys.

They’re just like you and me.

Dads fighting to put food on the table without selling their soul to some boring 9-5.

Single moms scratching and clawing to give their kids a life as close to “normal” as they can hope for.

College kids… so optimistic and excited for their future.

I’ve experienced all of these things at one point or another in my life.

So, I know when they ask the question… it’s not just a question.

It’s THE question.

It’s the answer to the life they’re battling with right now.

Maybe the life YOU are battling with right now.

“I wish somebody would please just tell me what I need to learn to do this full-time! I’ll do whatever. I’m a hard-worker. I just need to know WHAT to do.”

I always sense a tinge of agony when somebody asks me this question. I remember it well.

It’s the question I battled with for several years when I first started learning web development.

And back then… there were no good answers.

That question kept me chained to my dead-end job at the local pizza joint.

Wasted 4 years of my life trying to learn the skills to do this full-time.

And made me give up several times.

Today, though, the answer is easy to find.

In fact, let me just give it to you.

Here’s exactly what you need to know to work full-time as a web developer:

  1. HTML 5: The bedrock of all web pages.
  2. CSS 3: The latest and greatest tricks for making stunning looking websites
  3. Javascript & jQuery: Essential for today’s interactive web
  4. PHP: The language every “big” website runs on. Crucial.
  5. MySQL: Robin to PHP’s Batman for creating interactive websites.
  6. Bootstrap: THE front-end web development framework.
  7. WordPress: Powers 26% of all websites. Must know.
  8. Mobile Apps: The mobile revolution is already here.

There it is. That’s the list.

“But wait… what about Node or Angular? And SASS and LESS? What about all the new stuff coming out?”

Look, that stuff is great… but it’s not necessary.

The list above is required. You HAVE to know how to do those things. The rest (right now) is just gravy. Learn it later.

Now, what if I told you that you could learn absolutely everything on that list for less than I spend on toilet paper each month (we do have 5 people in the house)?

Smart developers say, “where do I sign up?”.

Right here.

Check the list. Check the ratings. Check the number of students.

This is THE place to kick your boring 9-5 to the curb and start doing what you love for a living.

Unless you like your day job. Then ignore this post.

But, if you’re looking for a way out… or a way to never go there in the first place… here’s your ticket.

And, once you take control of your time and your money… if you wanna take Fridays off, you sure as hell can.

See you over there.

I started this 3 days ago, following John’s suggestions, and I gained the Upwork Rising Talent badge in less than 2 days. I have a call with my first potential client tomorrow. Thanks, John!

John is the man! I followed his steps and I am flooded with interviews in a week. I got into two Talent clouds. The very next day, I got an invitation from the talent specialists from Upwork and a lot more. I wanna shout out, he is the best in this. Thanks John for helping me out!

After viewing John’s course, I made an Upwork account and it got approved the same day. Amazingly, I got my first job the very same day, I couldn’t believe it, I thought maybe I got it by coincidence. Anyways I completed the job and received my first earnings. Then, after two days, I got another job and within a week I got 3 jobs and completed them successfully. All the things he says seem to be minute but have a very great impact on your freelancing career.

I’ve been in an existential crisis for the last week about what the heck I’m doing as a business owner. Even though I’ve been a business for about a year, I’m constantly trying to think of how to prune and refine services. This was very personable and enjoyable to watch. Usually, business courses like this are dry and hard to get through…. repeating the same things over and over again. This was a breath of fresh air. THANK YOU.

I’ve definitely learnt so much in 2.5 hours than I’d learn watching different videos online on Youtube and reading tons of articles on the web. John has a natural way of teaching, where he is passionately diving in the topics and he makes it very easy to grasp — someone who wants you to really start running your business well by learning about the right tools and implement them in your online business. I will definitely share with many of the people I know who have been struggling for so long, I did find my answers and I’m sure will do too.

I have been following John Morris for several years now. His instruction ranges from beginner to advanced, to CEO-level guidance. I have referred friends and clients to John, and have encouraged my own daughter to pay attention to what he says. All of his teachings create wealth for me (and happiness for my clients!) I can’t speak highly enough about John, his name is well known in my home.

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!

John has been the most important person in my freelance career ever since I started. Without him, I would have taken 10 or 20 years more to reach the position I am at now (Level 2 seller on Fiverr and Top Rated on Upwork).
