Upwork is in a bad state. They don't care about freelancers. They don't care about clients. They care about one thing only...money. To that end, they steal your income off the top by taking 20% of your earnings. That's cash straight out of your pocket. Food out of your family's mouth. And it gets worse...
When greedy Upwork went public they suddenly had shareholders to please. So they had to find new ways to suck more cash out of freelancers. By now you've probably noticed that Upwork charges you $0.15 per Connect, which wouldn't be that big of a deal, except most gigs cost 4-6 Connects. And the real problem is that the gigs haven't changed.
So even though you might have to pay nearly $1.00 just to apply, you're applying to the same old gigs. The same old clients (Clients who don't respond. Clients who aren't serious about hiring. Clients who waste your time.). I don't know about you, but I'm not spending all of my money just trying to get an interview through Upwork. Especially when there are better, faster, easier ways to find high-paying clients outside of Upwork.
And that's what this course is about.
When you enroll in this course I will show you:
How I find freelance clients beyond Upwork that pay way more than Upwork clients and are easier to work with
Freelance platforms that don't charge you an arm and a leg for a chance to have your time wasted
Which social platforms I use to find clients outside of Upwork and how I get those clients to come to me
Cold emailing methods that actually get high-paying freelance clients to respond fast and easy
Unconventional approaches to earn clients that probably no one else is doing anywhere
Secrets to help you escape Upwork for good so you can actually make money and never look back!
If you're sick and tired of greedy Upwork's dirty business practices, suspending your account for no reason, charging you out the wazoo because they have a poor money model, and generally treating you like dirt (when they wouldn't exist without you)... Then stick it to them when you enroll in this course and take back control!
Because once you have other ways to find clients, and once you've found the one that works for you...you will NEVER need Upwork again.

Your Escape Instructor,
P.S. I know greedy Upwork is the holy grail of freelance websites, and I know finding clients outside of Upwork seems scary, but as long as you give up control by using their platform, you will never have true freedom even if you work from home. Just like they've done to me numerous times, they can and will suspend or ban your freelance account at a moment's notice if they think you've broken a rule (even when you haven't).
If you are trying to build a career as a freelancer, then you need to take this seriously. Control is EVERYTHING and without it you put your entire freelance business and your income at stake (and that's on top of all the money you pay them). Think about that, and then make the choice that is best for you.
- You should understand that this is a BEGINNER LEVEL course.
- You should NOT expect to pay $10 and get elite information sent from the gods.
- You should be someone who can watch a talking head video, take the information, and apply it to get results.
- If you have a poor mindset then this course will be useless for you and you should not enroll.
- Only enroll in this course if you are ready to put in the effort to get results.
