(Without Dry Spells, Cold Calling, or Begging for Work!)
SIGN UP TO GET THE FREE FREELANCING COURSE!
Freelancing is the BEST way to control your own schedule, work, income, and lifestyle.
But if you're not experiencing that...it's not your fault. There is a TON of bad information out there.
Simply put: The only way to build a successful, predictable, six-figure freelance business (WITHOUT working crazy hours or working for peanuts) is to follow a proven, scalable, step-by-step system for finding and landing high-paying clients.
We’ve taught 10,000+ students to do it, and we can teach you, too.
How to Become THE In-Demand Freelancer in Your Industry
Have you heard that “the riches are in the niches”? Here’s why that advice is dead wrong—and what you really need to know to have prospective clients clamoring to work with you.
How to Start Landing Work ASAP and Ramp Up Fast
No, Upwork and Fiverr are NOT the keys to landing quick work—OR to scaling to 6 figures and beyond. In this segment of the training, you’ll learn what IS.
How to Ensure You Have Predictable and Steadily Increasing Freelance Income
Is freelancing risky? Not when you do it right! Learn how to avoid dry spells and ensure you’ve always got plenty of high-paying work coming in.
Most of the tactics people teach freelancers put the control in someone ELSE'S hands. "Find work on Upwork"—AKA, wait for a stranger on the internet to post a project, and then compete with dozens of people for one job. "Build your referrals"—as in, rely on someone else to pass along your information when they remember to. "Attend networking events"—I mean, really?
We got into freelancing to have MORE control over our time, work, and income, right? The simple fact is that if you don't have a proven, repeatable *system* for finding and landing clients—for controlling your opportunities—you're leaving your business up to chance.
The good news? Mastering the system is just a matter of following a few simple, repeatable, scaleable steps. Lather, rinse, repeat...succeed.
My name is Nicki Krawczyk, and I’m a freelancer and founder of FiredUpFreelance.com. Throughout the past 20+ years I’ve freelanced for multi-billion-dollar companies like Hasbro, adidas, and Keurig; for solopreneurs; and for just about every size business in between.
And, for the past 10 years, my team and I have taught thousands of people to build thriving freelance careers of their own.
If you’ve struggled or wondered why you can't seem to break through, here’s the great news: There’s no magic to success; it’s just about following a framework that works.
It's true (and obvious)—a graphic designer is going to provide different services than a bookkeeper, who's going to provide different services than a Pinterest manager, and so on and so on.
But while the services are different, the systems you use to figure out your personal pricing, create your website and marketing, and to research, find and land your clients are the same.
You can build any kind of house on a strong foundation—but you need to have that strong foundation.
If a company will pay an on-staff employee to do a job, then there’s a very good chance they’d pay a freelancer to do that same job.
That means there are a lot of options for freelance jobs! If you’re having a little trouble getting your mind going, here’s a short list of a few possibilities.
But remember that:
Recession. Inflation. Economic downturn. Market correction. No matter how you slice it, the news sure makes it sound scary out there right now. Except, for freelancers, it's not nearly as scary as you might think …
See, when economic problems hit, most people cut their spending and get scared. But that's most *people*. Companies think very differently.
In challenging economic times, companies:
Get hyper-focused on making sure they survive—
meaning, they get hyper-focused on solidifying their business, shoring up their sales, and doing whatever they have to make it through.
Hire freelancers who can make an impact—companies don't want to have to deal with the commitment of hiring employees when they don't know what the economy will do.
As a freelancer, you need to convey exactly how your service benefits a business—how it helps it grow, make more sales, or save money.
That doesn’t mean that a recession isn’t cause for concern and careful spending. But it does mean that recessions can be huge opportunities for freelancers.
