Unlimited freedom at your fingertips

The easiest way to get started as a freelancer is using existing online marketplaces to market your skills. These marketplaces already have potential buyers, an infrastructure and a system to market your services.

You don’t need to build anything from scratch. You just need to create a compelling reason for buyers on these platforms to use your services.

What's great about being a freelancer is that you can live from anywhere in the world. All you need is a laptop and an internet connection. Your instructors actually wrote this description on a amazing beach in Thailand, after having spent their morning scuba diving.

But their lives weren't always like this, both Ian and Jasper used to work in an office working a corporate job. Ian graduated from an Ivy League university, became a strategy consultant for Bain & Company and earned his MBA before leading the Mergers & Acquisitions team at eBay. Jasper started a career in finance after earning a Masters degree in Econometrics. He worked for Optiver, one of the largest proprietary trading firms in Europe and traded the major European and US stock markets.

Course Overview

Suitable for anyone who has the drive to start a freelancing career, this course contains 92 lectures and over four hours of video.

We start by teaching you on which platforms you can apply and monetize the skills that you've learned from your work experience, your education or from other Udemy courses.

We'll provide you with a step-by-step system that takes you through the process of starting your first gig on Fiverr. We then teach you exactly how to beat the competition by making your gig more attractive than the best selling gig in your category.

We'll teach you a little known strategy on Upwork to stand out from the competition and attract the clients that you want to work with. We show you how to build long term relationships with these clients instead of focusing on getting as many jobs as possible by competing on price.

Students completing the course will be able to start their freelancing career within weeks, if not within days. Complete with practical exercises, cheat sheets and to-do lists, the course will also give you the tools and knowledge to manage your life as a freelancer and make the switch from 9-to-5 to freelancing.

Who is the target audience?
  • someone who is unfulfilled in their current job and looking for more freedom
  • people who have experience in or taken courses on Udemy on professional skills such as Photoshop, Web Development, Copywriting, Design, Coding and many more
  • people who are NOT looking to make a supplemental or full-time income on online market places

Former Head of Mergers & Acqusitions, eBay; Bain consultant

Ian Bednowitz established and led the Mergers & Acquisitions team for eBay's largest business unit for five years. During that time, he and his team invested over $1B in capital in dozens of startups across the world after evaluating and meeting with hundreds of entrepreneurs. He has a deep understanding of entrepreneurs and the challenges they face, as he not only invested money in their companies, but he would also coach them on challenges ranging from growing their business, raising funds and staying healthy while living an incredibly busy lifestyle.

Prior to his role at eBay, Ian worked for over seven years at Bain & Company, a leading strategy consulting firm, where he helped work on strategy, marketing and operational issues in a broad range of Fortune 500 technology, financial services and consumer products companies. Bain sponsored Ian to attend the Kellogg School of Management, where he earned his MBA, focusing on strategy and entrepreneurship. Ian graduated with B.A. in Economics from Cornell University.

Ian realized his greatest passion at eBay was working with and coaching the entrepreneurs. As a result, in 2015 he stepped away from his role at eBay to focus exclusively on coaching entrepreneurs both one-on-one and through his Udemy courses which reach thousands of students worldwide.
