Probably the easiest way to land your first client

That no Insta-yuppie even knows about

It’s one of the things I despise about the incestuous nature of the freelance “guru” space — and YouTube for that matter. Everybody just reads everybody else’s s*** and regurgitates it in a new package to their audience.

There’s rarely any new ideas.

It’s one of the things I noticed coming up the way I did.

There was no social media. YouTube didn’t even exist, yet. Haha, imagine that. Could you imagine trying to learn anything, today, without YouTube? That’s how it was, Punky. Anyway, you had to — heaven forbid — come up with your own ideas back then.

Try s*** out.

And see what happened.

You had to be creative.

And have a little ingenuity.

It was the wild wild west, maaaan… haha.

But, my point here isn’t to yell at the kids to “get off my lawn, you whipper-snappers!” It’s because of how I came up that I’m probably the only person on this little blue ball that can teach you what is probably the easiest (and one of the fastest) ways to get clients.

You don’t need a portfolio.

You don’t need client reviews.

You don’t need a website.

You don’t need a profile on a freelance site.

It’s not cold email. Or social media. Or any of the dozen other methods you’ll see re-vomited about online. Those are all perfectly fine ways to get clients. But, not nearly as easy as this method I discovered.

A method used by billion-dollar service companies.

But very rarely, if at all, by freelancers.

And you can do it in the next five minutes.

And, it doesn’t cost a penny.

Anyway, it’s Chapter 7 in Part 2 of my Freelance Feast course. I’ll show you 8 unique methods for getting clients — but numbers 6, 7 ad 8 are especially effective… and rarely, if ever, talked about by the yuppies on Instagram or bewb-Tube.

As you may have heard…

That course is coming off Skillshare early tomorrow morning. So, if you want to get access, your time is quickly running out. After tonight, I’ll take the course off Skillshare and sell it on my website for probably around $150 or so.

So, if you want it now while it’s essentially free…

The link is here:

Clicking that will give you access to an exclusive 14-day trial of Skillshare where you get 100% unfettered access to the entire library of 30,000+ courses (including the one above). Every course, every video, every PDF, every download.

It all comes with the trial.

And, if you cancel before the 14 days is up… you don’t pay a penny.

Not a bad deal.

But, up to you. If you’d rather sign over your first born to me, tomorrow, I’ll be more than happy to let you. 😉

Otherwise, the link, again, is here:



P.S. If you’re a patron on Patreon, you already have access to this course (and all my courses) over on Patreon here:
