Any Industry. Any Niche. The Freelancers' Conference Is For You.

We surveyed hundreds of freelancers like you to find out where you're struggling in your business. Then we recruited rockstar entrepreneurs who have successfully navigated the same challenges to share with us! With talks ranging from leaving your 9-5 to hiring your first team, we've got you covered.

And unlike some conferences where you sit in a chair and are talked at all weekend, every session is followed by a Q&A, and a hands on workshop for you to begin to implement what you've learned!

  • Learn to price your services based on the promise and value you deliver
  • Find out what you need to do before you can quit your 9-5
  • Understand how to transition from working by yourself to hiring a team
  • Create the systems you need to manage your clients' expectations (and save time doing it)
  • ...and so much more!

In addition to all this, for those who are ready to learn and DO, you have the opportunity to join a 12 week mastermind in the weeks following the conference! This is where you'll get encouragement and accountability to actually execute what you've learned.

If you're ready to make more money freelancing, with more purpose and freedom,
then register today for the Freelancers' Conference.

Defining Your Brand

When you hear the phrase, “Just Do It” or see the Nike swoosh, you’re hearing a tagline and seeing a logo. Those are elements of a brand, but they’re not the brand itself. A brand is the promise of how a product or service makes you feel and the way in which it delivers that promise. […]

Planning Your Exit

If you’re a freelancer working a full time job who wants to stick to the man and leave your job, you’ve probably heard three types of advice on how to actually do it: Find capital (a loan) to finance your business at all costs OR Save up six months personal salary and two months business […]

Outsourcing Yourself: Hiring and Managing a Team

It’s a common problem for freelancers: they’re doing all the work of delivering the actual product or service they offer themselves, plus selling and marketing and project managing and bookkeeping and… the list goes on and on. When you’re doing all of these things plus the work itself, it’s very difficult to grow your business […]
