How in the heck do you find your first clients? This is the question that runs the mind of every prospective freelancer. Freelancing has a lot of scary parts – legalization, taxes, accounting, etc. but on the top of the list is always how do I find (and maintain) clients to support my business. Well, […]
I have this philosophy on what you should invest in when you get started with your freelance business. The three big investments that I think you should spend your money (and/or time) on are branding, your website, and strategy.

I work alone from home so sometimes I just need to see and hear people live and in living color. I need video to make up for […]
Last Thursday I threw up a sales page. And I spent Saturday-Monday iterating it. And it felt better than things I spent weeks building (not that those things weren’t good) but this thing was great. It’s great because it’s 100% on target for me. Every week, I share resources with you all. I help you […]
