I’ve been a freelancer for a loooong time (15+ years). And, in that time, have gotten to know several CEOs well enough to have had serious personal conversations with them.
Truth is… many are a train wreck.
I know two, in particular, who whenever there’s any dip in sales or any adversity, they completely check out. Will literally disappear for a week — right when they’re needed the most.
I never understood it.
I wanna scream at them…
“What the f!@# are you doing!?”
That’s the time to check IN, not check out.
I really do believe it’s how I grew up — in a mice-infested trailer home, every day on the brink of survival — with zero hope. You spend enough time there and you figure out how to just keep going even when things look bleek.
When things get tough…
I light UP. That’s when I come on. It’s when I’m MOST motivated. My challenge is keeping that motivation going when things are going good.
Anyway, point is…
I know if you grew up like I did, it can be scary to think about working with “big-name”, “big-money”, high-end, premium clients. “I don’t belong.” “They’ll find out I’m a fraud.” All the little self-doubts and insecurities.
I’m tellin’ ya…
They NEED you. Not just your talent and your work ethic. They need your resilience. They need someone who turns ON when adversity strikes. Someone who will kick them in the butt when they need it.
And, get them moving again.
Someone who’s comfortable “in the mud”.
And, the fact that you faced that kind of life when you were a kid and are STILL here… still grinding, still trying… that means you have it in you — whether you’ve figured that out yet or not.
And, like I said, those “fancy” clients who might seem “out of your league”..
They NEED you.
Their employees need you.
Their employees’ kids need you.
The 5-year-old kid who is on the brink of falling into poverty — when his parents lose their job because the CEO “checked out” right when he or she was needed most — and that kid has no idea… she NEEDS you.
…is to make sure YOU get paid what you deserve for it. That’s the whole reason I put together my 5-Figure Formula course. I see way too many freelancers charging a fraction of what they should be.
Spending late nights trying to figure out how to get over the hump.
Living paycheck to paycheck.
Trying to figure out which bills NOT to pay this month.
While they literally are making their clients hundreds of thousands, if not millions of dollars with the work they perform.
That’s the situation I was in.
I’d helped several clients launch million-dollar businesses…
While I didn’t know if I was gonna be able to feed my kids that month.
I was tired!
And, that’s WHY… when I saw two guys who were charging 12X what I was for the exact same service… I didn’t give a… I all but harassed them to get answers. And, the answers I found are what are in the 5-Figure Formula course.
It takes work.
It takes some thinking and researching.
But, it WORKS.
Anyway, I don’t know your situation… maybe, this doesn’t describe you. If not, feel free to ignore it.
But, if you’re TIRED like I was…
Give it serious consideration.
I really believe it’s the thing that can get you over that hump like it did me.
