Feeling stuck going project to project?

Feeling stuck going project to project?

 

Most people find themselves freelancing for the same reason: control.

We want to choose the work we do, who we do it for, and how much we earn for it.

And in the beginning it seems great...but so many people quickly find themselves in the same cycle.

You want to be your own boss or have your own thing...but suddenly you find yourself with both less time and less money than you did before you started!

Clients used to come easy, but now it seems like pulling teeth to land a new project!

But don't let yourself fall into the trap of so many freelancers...

If you're already feeling to grind of finding the next project, chances are you're calling in favors and looking for a project to start tomorrow.

And in doing so, you are in huge danger of forgetting to think long term and create systems that bring in new leads so you never find yourself in this situation again!

And I get it — you need to put food on the table tomorrow. Who has time to think about the long term?

Well here’s the problem…

If you don't put systems and practices in place to prevent this short term crisis from happening again, you will never get out of it.

You'll go project to project, payment to payment and be stressed out the whole time.

That’s why I created Freelancing School. Being stressed about your next payment isn't where you want to be. And so many freelancers are there all the time.

I've been in the short term crisis, and I've worked my way out of it. In fact, I haven't been worried about cash flow for two years now.

You don’t need to keep fighting the same frustrations and problems.

Let me show you how.
