Freelancer Debug

A strategic and focused 1:1 workshop to get you unstuck in your freelance pursuits.

Learn from my past 11+ years as a freelancer and get past your next hurdle.

It took me 4 years to make my first $100,000 as a freelance creative.

I almost gave up.

But the freedom was addictive.

I NEEDED to find a way to make this work.

So I figured it out to a tune of over seven figures (in profit) during my 10-year creative business career. Despite my struggles over the first four years, I created a profitable freelance career.

These numbers are not about the $$$ signs. Those dollar signs represent the freedom having a successful freelance business has given my family and me.

Freelancing has empowered me to:

  • Travel the country full-time as a digital nomad
  • Eat lunch most weekdays with my kids.
  • Provide care when my son had open heart surgery and needed to be home.
  • Make life decisions based on energy and what I currently want from life (not what a company needs from me).

This is possible, and I want it for you too! Your version of this list might differ significantly from mine, but the idea is the same. The freedom to control your own destiny.

You already have the code skills. You need a roadmap and some additional superpowers to get there.

Everyone’s journey is different, and I do not have all the answers. But I have the lessons I have learned along the way as a freelancer turned Saas CEO / product owner, and I want to share those with you.

Let’s Debug Your Freelance Business!

During our 1:1 workshop, we will dig in on the current state of your business and where you want to go. A strategic and actionable plan will be created for you to follow and launch yourself over that next speed bump.

Problems we can dig into:

  1. Dealing with clients
  2. Getting started
  3. Cashflow
  4. Scaling
  5. Selling yourself
  6. Time management
  7. Shifting to digital products
  8. Personal branding
  9. Productizing your service
  10. More – Email beforehand, and I will confirm if I can help.

What you get:

🌤️ Clarity

⚡ Energy

💪 Power

1:1 Workshop

During our 45-minute session we will discuss your biggest challenge right now, work through some possible solutions and define desired outcomes.

Game Plan

After our session I will craft a game plan specifically for you. It will include your steps for the next 5, 10, and 30 days so you can reach your goals. Short and actionable.

Email Access

Get stuck along the way? No sweat. Shoot me an email and I will do my best to unblock you. Sometimes you just need that friendly ear (or rubber duck if you know what I mean). Let me be your rubber duck.

How does it work?

Sometimes you need an outside perspective to overcome your current challenge. Let me into your business world and I can help you see the thing you might be missing.

What if it does not work?

If you put in the work and it does not result in you getting past your current challenge then I will offer a full refund. In eight years no one has asked for this.

What if I have a question not answered here?

Then send me an email using this contact form and ask away! I would be happy to answer any questions that you might have.

What does a “Game Plan” look like?

I try to keep it to one page as either a Notion or Google document. Long complex plans never get implemented, so we keep it simple and focused on your current goals.

What is “email access”?

Exactly like it sounds! During the execution phase of your game plan if you hit a blocker related to the outlined plan you can send me an email. I respond within one business day.

How far out will my 1:1 workshop be scheduled?

That is up to you! When you purchase you will receive a link to my calendar. I try to make different time slots available each week. A minimum of one week is needed between purchase and your scheduled workshop.
