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:

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.

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!

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).
