The problem is most schools don’t teach the business of freelancing for creatives.
  • How do you price your work?
  • What’s project management?
  • How do you get more leads?
  • How do you get bigger clients?
  • What goes in a contract? Do I need one?

Our course will help you gain the confidence you need to charge more, specialize, find better clients, and win more projects. And we're far less expensive than any of your college classes ever were.
