Curriculum

Section 1: Introduction
03:25

Welcome to the world of freelancing! You're about to receive a very thorough look into the phenomenon that is internet entrepreneurship, digital nomad-ing or whatever you know as the new way to "do work" in today's world. Freelancing isn't a dirty word, and I'm here to give you a glimpse into the life of a freelancer who's been in the trenches for close to a decade.

02:19

I'm an Internet entrepreneur who's spent the greater part of a decade failing, succeeding, learning and learning some more whilst having an awesome time in the process. I'm a full-time freelance graphic + web designer and creative who's used wit and grit in my pursuit to build an empire using the web.

Section 2: Money and Health
07:35

Everyone loves to talk about the money! How do I earn the money? How is money made? What can you do for some of the money? All of these questions answered and more!

06:21

Don't neglect your health! Sitting at a desk for hours at a time can be damaging to your health. I'm not a health nut, but I do know the importance of incorporating a fitness plan into your life much like you do your other freelancing endevours.

Section 3: A beacon for all freelancers
05:51

If you don't learn anything else form this course. Get acquainted with Freelancers Union!

Section 4: The technical side of freelancing
07:26

What tools to use for project and task management.

07:26

What are you doing when you're not working on client orders? It takes more than reactive work to make an impact in your business for the long haul. Passive income is changing the way freelancers earn a living, and you need to know that working smart is the new 'hard work'.

Section 5: Goodbye for now. Take this with you!
01:10

We've talked about it all! I hope I've provided you a thorough look into the world of freelancing. Make sure you frequently check the announcements, and a take a look at my other courses!

Cheers,

Dion Lynk

Let's test your knowledge. I typically find out things 'the hard way', but I've learned that you must sometimes not look to 'reinvent the wheel' and heed direction for some things. Freelancing is one of those things.

Instructor Biography

Dion Lynk, Graphic + Web Designer & Creative

Hi, I'm Dion Lynk a 10 year battle tested graphic + web designer and creative. I think I've learned more of what not to do over the last decade, and I'm here to share with you all the musings and tidbits I've learned along the way. The web is a very powerful vessel to say the least and you can literally do anything that you're passionate about and turn it into your very own small empire.

I've worked with various small businesses and internet startups throughout the years. My most notable clients include: UPS store, Beachbody, Platinum Wines, Aspen Homes, Pinacle Print Solutions and Equinox Fitness Clubs. Through extensive research, planning, hands on technical knowledge, and light years of sitting in front of my Macbook Air trying to "crack the code", I'm able to help you learn a wide array of graphic + web design and creative techniques that you will only learn in the most genuine way from someone who's conquered doubt, been in the trenches & creating his very own empire on the web!
