Description

There are so many courses about fast online success for freelancers.
Sorry, but this is not that course. 
You will not learn here how to get rich fast.
--- --- ---
But you will learn everything about being a freelancer.
All the ups and downs, all I know about working with clients, all about motivation and time management.
All the knowledge you need to start a happy and balanced freelance life.
I will share all my experience and insights I gathered in the last decade.
--- --- ---
I consider myself successful,
And I believe in sharing my success.
So I will not sugarcoat it: living the freelance life is great and a great challenge.
It can be hard and it can be liberating.
If you want to know, if this course was made for you, I suggest
check out  the lesson Pros and Cons of Freelancing.
If after that you want to live the freelance life,
if you think you have all it takes to become a freelancer,
if you just need a little help,
than yes, take the course!

Design teacher

I'm a graphic designer, illustrator and design teacher for more than 10 years. I create clever logos and cute illustrations, I like to inspire, share my knowledge and make people think and laugh!
I use Inkscape, an open source graphic design program in most of my design, and I was teaching this to my students too in a college in Budapest.
I am constantly sharing knowledge about design and life as a freelancer. I teach on Udemy since 2014 and work together with some of my friends now, to create better courses together by sharing my online teaching experience
Exploring new ways to create and sharing my knowledge is what I like the most - so don't be afraid to ask, I'm here to teach!.
