This Freelancing bootcamp gives you the step-by-step guide to go from ZERO EXPERIENCE to becoming a Freelancer and having a profitable freelance home business or online business, and landing clients you never thought possible.
You don't have to be some established professional to start earning money as a Freelancer. But many people just don't know where to start and how to stand out.
The biggest challenge used to be "how do I find clients?" but with the growth in platforms like Upwork, Fiverr, Freelancer and others, there are 1,000s of jobs available at any time.
Companies pay Freelancers $2.52 billion (and growing!) via Upwork alone each year.
Imagine being able to work from anywhere in the world, making a consistent monthly income and having the freedom to live your dream life. Take this course and we'll help you make it happen.
This course is NOT like other Freelancing courses and tutorials you will find online that only cover the basics. Or worse, are taught by someone that isn't even a successful Freelancer themselves.
This course is focused on efficiency and taking action:
Paul is a Top 3% Freelancer on Upwork and gives you the exact steps and templates that he's tested and used to get high-paying clients. And shows you how you can too.
Our focus is to get you earning money as quickly as possible and to set you up for long-term success.
You could complete the majority of this course in a weekend and get your first client in the next week or two if you're serious about making it happen.
Freelancing is a competitive space so we will be going beyond the basics and showing you how you can stand out and build a sustainable and profitable business.

Andrei is the instructor of some of the highest rated programming and technical courses online. He is now the founder of ZTM Academy which is one of the fastest growing education platforms in the world. ZTM Academy is known for having some of the best instructors and success rates for students. His graduates have moved on to work for some of the biggest tech companies around the world like Apple, Google, Tesla, Amazon, JP Morgan, IBM, UNIQLO etc... He has been working as a senior software developer in Silicon Valley and Toronto for many years, and is now taking all that he has learned, to teach programming skills and to help you discover the amazing career opportunities that being a developer allows in life.
Having been a self taught programmer, he understands that there is an overwhelming number of online courses, tutorials and books that are overly verbose and inadequate at teaching proper skills. Most people feel paralyzed and don't know where to start when learning a complex subject matter, or even worse, most people don't have $20,000 to spend on a coding bootcamp. Programming skills should be affordable and open to all. An education material should teach real life skills that are current and they should not waste a student's valuable time. Having learned important lessons from working for Fortune 500 companies, tech startups, to even founding his own business, he is now dedicating 100% of his time to teaching others valuable software development skills in order to take control of their life and work in an exciting industry with infinite possibilities.
Andrei promises you that there are no other courses out there as comprehensive and as well explained. He believes that in order to learn anything of value, you need to start with the foundation and develop the roots of the tree. Only from there will you be able to learn concepts and specific skills(leaves) that connect to the foundation. Learning becomes exponential when structured in this way.
Taking his experience in educational psychology and coding, Andrei's courses will take you on an understanding of complex subjects that you never thought would be possible.

Hi, I'm Paul Mendes. I love being the creator of my own destiny. I have always wanted to live life to the fullest and live on MY terms. That's why I ditched the 9-5 world for a life of being a Profitable Freelancer.
My goal as a Freelancing Coach is to enable you to do the same. To give you the confidence to try, and the personal strength needed to create freedom in every area of your life.
For me, discovering my strengths took time. But once I let go of fear, I realized that there was no limit. My first step was starting to invest in my education. That's where I learned the tools that I now live my life by.
Since becoming a freelancing coach, I have surrounded myself with people that I admire, people that inspire, people that have something to teach, and from whom I can learn. I know that learning a new way of doing things is a challenge, but with the right set of skills and abilities, anything and everything is possible.
I believe my purpose is to become the fullest expression of myself and to help others do the same by unlocking FREEDOM through FREELANCING.
