WARNING: This course is not for people with poor mindsets. If you have a history of action-faking, time-wasting, procrastinating, and generally not following through in life, then this probably isn't for you. This course is only for those who are ready to take action, apply the material and get results. Winners only!

Are you done with corporate slavery? Sick of nasty bosses? Tired of burning 8 hours a day 5 days a week to pay for gas for next week? Do you wish things could change? Do you crave freedom? Do you want more control over when you work, what you do, and how much you earn? It is possible. You CAN break the chains around your wrists, ankles, and neck! 

What is Freelancing? Imagine you could take your favorite skill: drawing, piano, writing, design...and just do that ONE thing and that was your job. Now imagine you could set your own hours, pick your own pay, and work with really awesome people. That's freelance. It's like a job with no bosses, pay caps, or time cards, and you make all the rules. As a freelance, you are not an employee. You are a contractor, kinda like a hitman but you don't kill people!

How Much Can You Earn? Since freelancers aren't employees, you aren't bound to a single employer. Nobody slaps your wrist if you work for more than one person at a time. And since one client can pay full-time rates, and you can work with multiple clients, you can start to see how it adds up. What this means is you can potentially earn full-time pay with part-time work while enjoying more time, freedom, and control in your life.

What Will You Learn? When you join this course you will learn how to Start a Freelance Business. Inside I've done my best to share the exact process I used to go from $0 to full-time pay MULTIPLE TIMES, even though I had NO Degree, NO experience, and NO portfolio. I went from nothing to the highest income I'd ever earned...and that's what I teach in this course.

Inside you will discover:

  • How to become a full-time freelancer even if you don't have many skills right now

  • How to earn your first paying clients even if you have no degree and no portfolio

  • How to go from nothing to full-time rates and beyond in the shortest time possible

  • How to forge a powerful freelance mindset even if you're unsure of yourself right now

  • How to create a successful freelance business using proven systems and processes

What Other People Say

"Probably the best course I've ever taken on Udemy. Incredible value for the price: great material, tips, and insights. Also, Lex (the instructor) is awesome. This is the one course in freelancing you need." - Ruben Avalos

"I have taken several Udemy courses on freelancing, and this is the best, hands down. I learned so many new things, especially about writing the profile and proposals, that just wowed me. Lex has a clear speaking voice, and is easy to understand, and i feel like the course was very comprehensive." - Susan Slaughter

"My experience with this course in a word... Wow! So much value packed into a course with such a low price tag. The topics in it are dead-on and overcome the issues and the concerns all new freelancers experience. In it you'll find practical, no BS advice that takes the budding freelancer by the hand, and into the challenging world of freelance. It equips him with the tools he needs to shift the odds in his favor and earn a tidy income. Now to avoid sounding like a paid review, I'll just say that this course was way different from others I've taken, and was worth every cent. Thank you Lex!" -  Ivan Davidovski

Q - Can I do this even if I'm not a native English speaker?
A - Yes, anyone with internet access can become a freelancer.

Q - Can I really replace my full-time income?
A - Yes, most people can replace their full-time income once they get the hang of it.

Q - How long will it take me to generate $1,000 per week?
A - That depends entirely on you. Some do it in a month,  some in six months, and some never get started, so they don't do it at all.

Q - What if I don't have any skills that clients need?
A -  I cover this in the course, but in short, if you don't have skills, you will have to learn one just like I did.

Q - Can I freelance without quitting my full-time job?
A - Yes, and I recommend you keep your job for now unless you have a nest-egg. Keep your job until you earn enough with freelancing to make the switch.

If you have any other questions, you're welcome to ask them inside. I try to respond fast, and thoroughly. If that's what you need, then go ahead and put yourself in this course now!
