Description

Let me teach you how I earned $1,120 in my first month freelancing only part-time!

This course is designed to show you the most lucrative freelance jobs you can do with little to no experience or skills.  Oftentimes courses promising to make you thousands of dollars a month will require advanced web design, development or skills that require extra courses to master.  My goal is to give you the resources to actually get started making decent money quickly by targeting the right freelance opportunities without competing with hundreds of others trying to bid the lowest cost just to get work.

What to expect from the course:

  • We’ll talk about the types of freelance/flexible work that I focus on to make the most money without signing up for dozens of freelance sites, bidding on work, and all those other time wasters that don’t make any money.
  • Each type of freelance job that I feature will have a resource PDF that gives you links to the companies that hire for those jobs as well as some great training links (if necessary) and other tips for that particular type of work.
  • Ongoing Support, I’m here to help with all your questions about freelancing and also will frequently update the course with new opportunities and tips as I find them.

What do I need to get started?

-To get started in most cases you just need a laptop, reliable internet connection and the willingness to learn.

-There is no need to market yourself, build a website following or a portfolio, there is great freelance work out there that doesn’t require all that up front work.

-This course is mainly geared to U.S. residents as many of the companies I feature in the course hire primarily in the United States.

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is for anyone who would like to earn extra income doing freelance work.
  • The course in primarily aimed at students based in the U.S. as most of the companies I feature in the course hire US citizens. However the types of work I talk about are likely available in other countries as well.

Over 10 Years of experience in Financial Planning & Analysis Roles

I have worked as an analyst for some of the largest corporations in the United States (Fortune 500 companies Blackrock and Moody’s Corporation); one of the UK’s largest banking firms (Barclays) and am currently working as a senior financial analyst for a Fortune 1000 company in the Energy Industry.

Work Highlights:

- Working on the trading floor at Blackrock reconciling hundreds of trades a day to make sure they matched on price and settlement dates..it was tedious work but taught me everything I needed to know about dealing with huge amounts of data and it forced me to learn excel in ways I never thought possible.

-A part-time job while I was in graduate school with Foster’s Australia..yep..That’s Australian for Beer! I got to analyze promotional pricing and its effect on sales, which was really interesting, but the best part was of course the product allowance (free beer)!

-I spent 3 years working for a company that ran call centers all over the world; I loved working with our other financial analysts in Costa Rica, the Philippines, Romania, and Argentina, it made me realize that numbers are universal.

Passion for Education

I got the opportunity at my last job to work on internal training initiatives for our overseas staff and had a blast getting together the materials and passing along my knowledge, I look forward to doing the same for the students on Udemy!
