This is that turning point I keep bringing up:

2018-10-22_1443

You get a little taste of success.

But, really don’t know how.

Then, all of sudden, it stops.

And, all the fears… all the doubts and insecurities, all the “why me” and “can’t ONE thing just f!@#ing work!?”… the nightmares about being stuck in a 9 to 5 forever, all the people saying, “I told you so”.

You bounce from depressed to pissed to confused…

This is the moment you decide to get serious…

Or, walk away.

THIS is what I mean by building a real business around your freelancing services. KNOWING how you got those clients. KNOWING how to get more. KNOWING you don’t have to worry about that ever again.

So, the solution?

How do you do it?

You saw my answer, right?

THAT is a start.

I’ll keep quoting him until people stop asking me:

“If you’re not producing content online, you basically don’t exist.”

— Gary Vaynerchuk

But, most freelancers will find an excuse not to.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

What do you do?

Of course, that’s just a start. Freelancers are service providers. And, that industry is well-established. What works is well-established. You don’t have to guess. You don’t have to wonder. You just have to learn it then DO it.

Repeat clients.

Referrals.

Service quality.

On and on down the list… it’s all known.

Anyway, THAT is what I teach you in my new Beginner’s Guide to Freelance course. All the things we KNOW work that most freelancers just simply refuse to do. And, if you do them… long-term, you can’t lose.

So, if you’ve reached that point…

Where it’s time to quit f!@#ing around…

And, time to get serious.

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING

Bradley Smith

John and I have worked together on numerous projects. John is very quick and efficient and was a pleasure to work with.

Xan Barksdale

Xan Barksdale

Very professional worker who is extremely knowledgable in WordPress and Wishlist Member. I would definitely hire again.

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!

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.

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.
