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'.

There are many many more people that I can name, but these are just a few of my favorite freelancers to watch.

Freelancers you need to know!

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.

So, how do you freelance?

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!
