Most freelancers REFUSE to learn this

This is probably the hardest thing to convince freelancers of:

2018-10-16_0819

It’s such a mindset shift.

I think most freelancers, understandably, are a bit desperate when they start out. Hell, I was. I was trying to leave a 9-to-5 I hated. I was looking for something to just “work” and help me escape.

And, I’d have begged clients if I had to.

So, I get it.

And, frankly, early on…

You probably should work with clients who don’t pay well…

And, are awful to work with.

You just need experience… any experience almost.

But, if you really wanna make the next step in your freelance career and go from getting paid to getting paid WELL… at some point, you have to become disciplined in how you deal with clients.

Your mindset has to change.

And so, if a client is underbidding a project…

And, you tell them so…

And, you sell them on value.

And, their response is “[email protected]# off” and they decline the proposal.

Good!

You just saved yourself a massive headache. In fact, most of the time I wouldn’t even bother to bid on projects that are way underbid. Those generally aren’t going to be the clients you wanna work with.

Of course, that’s all hard to do when you’re desperate for clients.

Never knowing where the next one will come from.

If they’ll pay well.

Will they be a pain in the arse.

The trick is to get so much incoming work that you literally can’t work with them all. And, you have to pick and choose who you’re going to work with. THAT’S when your mindset will change.

THAT’S when you become picky.

And, THAT’S when you’ll start making even more as a freelancer.

Anyway, that’s also what my new freelancing course will help you do. How to figure out what (high-paying) services to offer as a freelancer. How to find clients who will hire you for those services. How to get referrals. Repeat clients. And more.

And, you can get access to it for nothing over on SkillShare.

John did an outstanding job on my project. I highly recommend him and look forward to working with him on future projects.

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!

Bradley Smith

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

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.
