It started at 9:30 am every morning.
That’s when I’d come slumping in the back door. Black pants, company shirt… and “DON’T FORGET YOUR HAT OR ELSE!” Clock in and begin the riveting work of cooking chicken… at a pizza restaurant.
A career full of meaning and purpose!
“Hey, chicken boy, I want more legs.”
“Hey, chicken boy, the potatoes are cold.”
“Hey, chicken boy, your chicken is garbage.”
Day after day, month after month — sucking the life out of me. A former college athlete, an Army veteran who’d successfully led a squad of soldiers in Iraq — reduced to yes sir/no sir-ing grumpy old people in a pizza restaurant.
It was humiliating.
I felt like such a failure.
But, what really ate at me was I KNEW I was better than this. I was smart. I was a hard worker. I knew I was meant for more. But, I just couldn’t get it together. And, not for lack of trying.
I’d spent many a late night working on my freelance business.
Trying to figure out how to get clients and start making muney.
What I’ve learned since is that “being smart” is actually part of the problem. We (I assume you consider yourself smart if you’re here reading this) tend to overthink and overanalyze things. And, make things harder than they have to be.
We complicate things that are actually quite simple.
Take getting freelancing clients, for example.
It’s actually not that complicated. There are sites like Upwork, Fiverr and Freelancer that have thousands of people going there everyday to hire freelancers. People, with muney in hand, ready to hand it over to the right person.
Yet, I constantly get asked: “Where do I find clients?”
Or, what services to offer.
There are people, right now, making hundreds of thousands in freelance fees creating PowerPoint slides or creating Tik Tok videos. Dead simple stuff that you probably already know how to do — and, to be frank having hired some of these people — that you could do BETTER than those people.
So, it’s not complicated.
It’s not about some genius new insight or idea.
It’s about ACTION.
THAT is what matters.
In any case, take that for what it’s worth.
Hopefully, a kick in the pants to get you moving.
That said, the thing I know is Upwork. It’s where I started and the first “nut” I cracked that jumpstarted my freelance career. It’s also the platform I’ve helped thousands of other Upworkers to “crack” and get going with, as well.
Because of the unique method I teach for building your profile there.
One based on the science behind Upwork’s Search and Suggestion algorithm.
And the “flaw” that exists in it for new freelancers.
It also happens to be the largest freelancing platform on the planet with, on average, over 8,000 new jobs and 2.7 milly in new work posted to it every single day.
Just imagine getting even just small slice of that pie.
Anyway, that’s what I teach.
