There’s a moment in every Freelancer’s career.

You’ve got a few clients…

Things seem to be going well.

But, you’re not really sure how it all happened. You’re not making quite enough to feel comfortable. And, you can’t help but worry, constantly, about what happens if you lose one of our clients… and can’t get another.

It’s a turning point.

Figure it out and you go onto a successful freelance career.

Don’t and you get stuck… unable to grow.

Eventually, most give up.

For me, it was “the hockey guy”.

A hockey training membership site I’d built for a guy. He was the client that  put more over the top. I’d nudged into the 6-figure range and, honestly, felt like it was all built on a house of cards.

Because, I had almost no idea how I’d done it.

I’d just kind of got the clients.

And, I had no real idea how or why.

I just kept imagining it all falling apart and there being nothing I could do about it. I obsessed over it. And, my anxiety was through the roof 24/7. I remember thinking, “This is supposed to be a GOOD thing. Why does it feel so awful?”

Anyway, it ended up being good for me.

Because, it drove me to dig deeper.

​​​​​​​And, actually figure out what was working… and WHY.

That led me to go from charging 50/hour to 100/hour. To get rid of some clients that were dragging me down. To get a lot more pro-active in my “client-getting”. And, to reach a point where I was getting 30+ project offers/month.

I got one from a well-known internet market named Ryan Lee that I turned down.

Another from Leslie Samuel from Social Media Examiner.

It put me in a lot stronger position.

With a lot more peace of mind and certainty.

Because now I actually KNEW what I was doing.

And, it all came from just taking the time to dig in and really learn how to market, how to get clients and how to build a REAL freelance business that wasn’t beholden to “luck” or change or any freelancing platform.

If that’s the kind of thing you’re after…

Then maybe THIS is the kick in the pants you need…

To turn that corner and get serious.

Anyway, what I learned during that time is what I cover in my new Beginner’s Guide to Freelance course. The big rocks. The chess moves to make to methodically build your freelance business with certainty.

You can get access to it for nothing over on SkillShare.

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING

Daniel Mohlendick

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

Thabo Motsoahae

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

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.

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.

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!
