Have you wanted to make the leap into freelancing, but you don’t know where to start?
Don’t worry, I got you. By the end of this guide, you’ll be able to launch your freelance business and nab your first customer!
Six years ago, I left a job that was slowly killing me. Sure, I had a fancy title, airline miles, and a sweet apartment in New York, but I was miserable. I gained 30 pounds, I was physically ill, and I wasn’t my best self. I spent my waking hours chained to a desk and my sleep was plagued with nightmares about being chained to said desk. So I made the leap. I went out on my own, and I haven’t looked back. In the past six years, I’ve made some big mistakes but also some remarkable accomplishments. I published my second book, I made more $ working fewer hours, and I’ve done some of the best work of my career.
You deserve to live your best life and I want to show you how.
