This course aims to help you succeed on the platform by distilling years of experience into less than two hours of high-quality video.
In addition, success on the platform has opened up many doors for me - from outsourcing opportunities to starting my own business. The final segment of the course is dedicated to possible career paths, long-term strategy, and passive income opportunities.
The first-level goal is to get more work. The second-level goal is for that work to be better paid. The third-level goal is to diversify your earnings in the long term, open doors for yourself, and enjoy the freedom of freelancing to pursue your interests.
The course is focused on the Upwork platform, even though most of the principles apply to all freelance work. One of the first lessons will explain why Upwork is still the best choice for up-and-coming freelancers.
After that, we will go through the whole process: creating an impressive profile, selecting the right projects, writing great applications, communicating with clients, and managing your career in the long-term.
The lessons include relevant real-life examples, as well as the client perspective: how clients see your job applications, how they decide who to hire, and you can stand out from the crowd.

I started freelancing in 2011. Since then, I have worked on all types of projects: small and large, solo and in teams, as a coder and as a leader. I have hired other freelancers. I have learned the ins and outs of the freelance world along the way.
I have also built several side projects of my own. One of these turned into a business that I ran for a few years and, ultimately, sold.
A year ago, I started writing about my experience on Medium. I have also written a book titled The Unstoppable Freelancer - a comprehensive guide taking you from the moment you consider freelancing all the way to achieving professional and financial independence.
