Freelance design is never steady.
I LOVE freelance and I HATE not knowing when I'll get paid next. It has always been like that for me and I've been self-employed now for over 15 years. In the beginning, I killed myself looking into new ways to make money without straight-up harassing people to give me design work. This class goes over what I've learned as a (broke) freelance designer creating passive income, making my own opportunities, and the psychology of keeping it together while doing it.
You can panic, dwell, space out, start applying for a "real job" OR you can use the slow times to propel your portfolio, set up passive streams of income, shake up your marketing, and STRENGTHEN your design business!
In the freelance design business, there is no rest for the wicked! Keep your head in the game and prepare for future success while you have the free moments!
This class does not waste your time! I talk fast, work hard, sum up only the good stuff and kick you back out into the freelance fray faster than you can say PNG!
