Are you terrible at freelance interviews? Does the thought of getting on a call make you curl up in a little ball? Do you hate high-pressure sales tactics? 

If so, then this course is for you!

When it comes to interviews, most freelancers are scared sick. So many questions and worries run through your mind.

  • What if they see right through me? 

  • What if they ask questions I'm not ready for? 

  • What if they discover I'm a total fraud?!

These exact questions lead freelancers to avoid phone calls. Instead, they stick with text chat. The problem is, you won't EVER win $1,000, $5,000 or even $10,000 gigs through text chat.


Because no client in their right mind hands a freelancer loads of cash without a live call.

When clients come to Upwork or any other freelance platform, they're skeptical. They've heard all the stories about how those sites are filled with foreigners who don't speak English. Since we fear what we don't understand, it's only natural that clients have their own anxieties.

Does that mean clients never hire freelancers without a call?


Clients regularly hire freelancers for low paying work without getting on phone calls. But not for high pay. It's because low pay work carries lower risk. Even if things don't work out, the client doesn't lose much money. So it's not a big deal. But when it comes to thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars, they have to be sure you're the right person for the job.

Okay, I need to do calls, but I'm terrified and I hate sales!

Every freelancer I've ever met hates sales. They hate calls.

They can't stand how:

• It feels like you're being interrogated even though you're just there to help

• You nervously answer questions, and pray clients don't see right through you

• You struggle to get paid your worth, and you don't even know how to sell

The good news is, I can help you, and that's what this course is for.

Inside you will discover how to:

Talk way less on calls and stop trying to prove you're an expert

• Ask the exact right questions and say exactly what they need to hear

Prove your value and show your worth without giving discounts

In this course I'll show you exactly how I do it.

It's a simple method with NO HIGH-PRESSURE SALES.

Instead, you get to be yourself. Be authentic. Relax. You don't even have to sell. Not only will I show you how I close $3,000 to $8,000 contracts, I'll show you how to do it even if you don't have much proof to back you up!

This is the exact system used by coaches selling $30,000 programs. The exact process web designers selling $50,000 websites use. I use it to sell myself as a freelance copywriter and marketer.

Bottom line, if you're willing to AT LEAST get on a call, you can learn this method.


It's scary.

You almost certainly WILL feel fear. Your fight or flight instincts will kick in at the thought of talking to clients. It happens to me  every single call. You have to dig deep and find the courage to pick up the phone or start the video chat. But once you're on the call, everything changes.

So my goal is to show you the exact steps to own the call.

To give you a clear process. To prepare you to win. To make the interview as easy and smooth as possible so you can charge higher rates than ever before, and actually get clients to pay.

Just think about that for a moment.

Wouldn't life be better if you could do almost no talking, and make an $8,000 sale? 

How many calls would you have to do before you were done for the year? How many calls would you have to take before you reached your goals? How fast would you pay off your debts, and how much would you stash away for later? 

Let other freelancers nervously try to prove their value on the call.

When you take this course, you will beat every one of them without proving anything at all.

If that makes sense for you, scroll up and enroll right now!
