Does this sound familiar?
You work a full-time job...
40+ hours per week...
You have a ton of financial responsibility...
I would love to work for myself, and run my own business, but in what universe do I have time to build a freelancing business? I have no experience, no idea where to start, and no clients...
What if I quit my job and risk not getting enough paying work to support myself or my family?
For these reasons, starting a freelance business seems daunting, especially if you feel like you’re doing it alone...
Well, you're not alone. I’m not only going to show you what the next right step is...
Maybe you’ve tried freelancing before, but became frustrated with the feast or famine income, the high maintenance, low paying clients who don't appreciate your value, and the seemingly non-existent high-paying work.
Have you tried building your freelance business on websites like UpWork, PeoplePerHour, Freelancer, and Fiverr...
But you realized there's always somebody willing to work for less than you, undercutting the value you offer...
And ultimately thinking that maybe you're just not cut out for freelancing.
You’ve read the blogs, watched the tutorials, heard all of the advice...
[the scene: an exotic location, probably Thailand, palm trees swaying, rolling emerald-coloured ocean waves…
enter: a 22 year old dude, sunglasses, riding a motor scooter, laptop bag hanging from his side, holding a margarita...]
"Quit your job!"
“Live the laptop lifestyle!"
“Monetize your passion!"
All that sounds great, but you're probably sitting there thinking...
You may have a family, a job, a mortgage, and barely any time to even think...
Let alone quitting your job and start scooting off into the sunset.
Let’s be realistic here.
But you're overwhelmed by all of the information out there, the training programs, the hundreds of how-to articles and tutorials...
Where do I even start?
What do I focus on?
How much do I charge?
Paralyzed by the myriad of choices, you just want to give up, forget about the whole thing, and clock back into your day job...
Hey, guess what? I hear you!!
You’re in the right place.
I'm basically just explaining the experience I had starting my own freelance business.
I've worried, hesitated and stressed my fair share.
I was afraid to pull the trigger and put myself out there to talk to potential clients. I was scared to take a leap into the unknown.
I was overwhelmed with how much information was available. I had no idea where to start.
Or who to trust.
And I felt like there were a million steps between me and quitting my job, getting enough clients to earn a sustainable income and support my growing family.
I have two young children, an amazing wife, and legit responsibilities...
I have mouths to feed and bills to pay, catch my drift?
I didn’t just quit my job and start a freelance business.
I didn’t move to Thailand, and scoot off into the sunset.
But guess what?
I’m living my dream life. It’s very real. And the freedom I experience is more amazing than I could have ever anticipated.
I run a successful freelancing business, and I'm still refreshingly surprised by the fact that I earn more money than I ever would have at my "safe" full-time job.
But that’s not even the best part...
Do you want to know what’s way more fulfilling than money?
I get to watch my two young children grow up. I spend every single day with my wife.
I am completely in charge of what I do with my time, where I work, and when I work.
I have the ability to stop working at the drop of the hat to go on a road trip with my family (or to take my child to the emergency room because…kids)
I’m not bound by a schedule, the demands of a boss, and I never have to spend another minute in rush hour traffic.
I no longer have to beg my boss 8-months in advance if I am allowed to go on a vacation…just for a few days…because I’m burning out…(no?…how about one extra day after the weekend?…SERIOUSLY COME ON!)
[One time my wife surprised me on Father’s Day with tickets to Las Vegas…and we were scheduled to leave only a few hours later! Definitely wouldn’t have been able to do that when I had a normal job.]
There was so much that happened before I even thought about quitting my job.
You see, I worked really hard to build my freelancing business to the point where I could confidently quit my job and start freelancing full-time.
I got started with freelancing at the bottom of the barrel, working for free, doing tradesies and working a ridiculous amount of hours for extremely low pay.
I tell you this, because I’m going to teach you everything to do...but also not to do, saving you the time, stress, doubts and the frustrations I had to go through.
I'm working on projects, bidding for clients, sending proposals, and making a real living from this business.
Yet, despite all this...I’m able to support my amazing family of 4 based on this single income stream — and I’ll show you how you can too, whether you have a family like me, or want to use your abundance of freedom to … bear with me here … explore and travel the world running your freelance business from your laptop (no motor scooters and sunglasses required…)
The type of business I run and lifestyle I live are accessible to my audience, yet it’s enough to challenge, inspire and ignite action from a student who’s starting out to say…
Hey, he’s just a normal dude like me. He’s in the trenches and gets me -- if he can do it, what’s stopping me from doing it too?
I'm your personal mentor through it all.
I created this course because it’s the exact blueprint I wish I could have had when when I was starting out.
What makes me better, or more qualified than all of the other instructors, freelancers, entrepreneurs, and gurus out there?
Well, you know that I have the experience to back me. And I know the material in this program is going to change your life. But besides that...
Plain and simple.
Overly confident in myself?
No. Just telling you the truth.
I’m not afraid to be upfront with you about what I know.
In only 3 years, I’ve amassed a following of over 162,751 students on Udemy...

Brad’s goofy, but lovable delivery and natural ability to teach complex subjects (in an easily understandable way), is what really makes this course[…] The advanced techniques and Brad’s generous heaping of tricks & tips, are the likes of which you can only get from being taught by a master of their craft.

Another step forward... Business Cards designed and ordered! Delving into the world of Freelancing! @bradhussey— Nocturnal Insight (@nocturnalNsight) July 23, 2016
I’m your guy. I’ve got your back.
The freedom I experienced in my first year of freelancing was amazing...breathtaking even!
I literally thought I'd cheated the system, like I'd pulled the wool over someone's eyes and found some secret to life that nobody else knew about.
I’ve been able to continue that momentum, and grow my business to the point where I know I’ll never go back to the way it was before.
It’s the Ultimate Freedom, and I want you to have the same.
...that’s okay -- in fact, it may even be a great thing since we won’t have to undo any bad habits!
I’ve taken everything I’ve learned and experienced over the years as a freelancer, and packaged it up in an implementation program that you can use to build a freelancing business from scratch.
I will guide you — step-by-step — from no experience, no clients and no cashflow...
And transform you from not knowing where to start, to securing your first 3 paying clients.
You’ll be given the tools, the strategies and the exact roadmap to turn your fledgling freelance career into a sustainable (and profitable) business you can be proud of...
So that you can confidently say goodbye to your day job...
And say hello to an abundance of freedom, like you’ve never experienced before.
If this sounds like something you’ve been looking for, then keep reading...
Less than 1 month after enrolling in the course, I won my first proposal with a small local energy efficiency company for $2,000. I received a 50% deposit upfront, and 50% upon completion — just like Brad instructs!
— Rhyan Vargas, earned $2,875 since enrolling
This course was designed to take you through every step of the process so you don’t waste precious time making the same mistakes I did and allow you to stand out in a crowded marketplace that suits any learning style, including:
Let’s review the modules designed to help you break free and start living a life on your terms, not anyone else’s…
You’re going to get access to The Freelancing Freedom Group — a private mastermind of freelancers that you can share your ideas with, ask questions, and can hold you accountable.
[Here are some screenshots of students letting us know they booked their first paid clients using strategies from the course]
I’ll be hosting live Q&A sessions every month with the members of the community to dive deep into the freelancing questions that are on your mind right now.
Also, you’re going to get The New Freelancer Toolkit, a welcome package that’s loaded with a ton of valuable worksheets, templates, and resources. It’s everything you need to get your hands dirty, before you even start the course.
And so it begins! You’ll receive your New Freelancer Toolkit so you can get started upon registration, be introduced to like minded people and start setting outlandish goals...with a proven process to accomplish them!
Included in the New Freelancer Toolkit, you’ll receive:
...and more -- you’ll know this course was worth it even with just this module!
The riches are in the niches! Aiming to serve everyone means you’ll get lost in the crowd, instead we’ll deep into your strengths & weaknesses and find your specific freelancing niche.
In this module, we're going to learn how to "niche down" as a freelancer, and which disciplines & skills we should be focusing on in order to best serve our clients. We'll also dive deep into why you don't need to learn everything before actually jumping in to something -- i.e. you don't need to master Front-End Development before getting paid as a Front-End Developer, etc.
Should you sacrifice finding work to craft that perfect portfolio website? Or should you abandon the pretty, mosaic-style portfolio theme you just bought for $49 on ThemeForest and book a paid client first?
Think about that for a second...
In this module, we're going to find out when you should focus on building that perfect portfolio website, and when you should forget about it. We'll also focus on the different approaches to setting up a portfolio website, using WordPress vs. coding from scratch, and very importantly, what you should and should not include.
How much money should you charge? Should you charge low and book as much cheap work as possible? Or should you charge super high, but risk losing some of your clients?
We're going to discover the 3 different types of pricing models you can take advantage of as a freelancer, we'll learn how to realistically predict time & cost when estimating projects for clients, and we'll find if it's possible to increase our rates (up to 2X) without making our clients angry.
What if you could generate leads on demand, connect with others and sell yourself so well that people are lining up to work with you?
Before we dive headfirst into getting clients, marketing ourselves, and building our empire, we need to start simple. We need to lay the groundwork for getting clients. Who is your target client? How do you find out who they are? Why does your target client hire freelancers in the first place? How do you speak to potential clients? How do you sound professional, sell yourself, and not feel like a sleazeball?
We'll cover all of this and more in this module.
An extension to the prior module, we’ll dive deep into next level strategies for crushing client meetings and being positioned as the only choice for your prospects.
You've discovered your why, found your niche, established your price, crafted your offering, and prepared ourselves for getting clients — it's in this module where we'll dive into the deep end and focus on getting clients!
In this module we'll learn the difference between many clients & premium clients, acquire some advanced strategies for securing quality clients, and building rapport instantly.
Imagine having an automated system for on-boarding new leads, scheduling client calls, sending proposals & contracts and getting paid on time — saving you all the hassle and allowing you to focus on what you do best.
In this module we'll dive deep into how to plan & manage a project from start to finish, taking over existing client websites, keeping the communications lines clear with your client, getting good feedback, receiving final payment and how to properly follow up when you finish a project to increase referrals.
Freelancing is a business and in this module we’ll tackle the grown up stuff such as keeping track of clients, finances, and if you should incorporate or hire an accountant so you’ll never be surprised come tax-time.
The #1 issue with freelancing is inconsistent income and you can kiss that goodbye by creating recurring, predictable revenue streams. Imagine unlocking your phone in the morning and seeing that you made money in your sleep!
In this module we'll learn all about the most valuable tools, software, apps, books, podcasts and resources available to you in your freelancing business
Don’t waste your time re-creating the wheel, instead use our done-for-you swipe files, scripts and templates you can use to email clients, send invoices, proposals and contracts.
At the end of the day, there’s a deeper rooted why behind your business and in this module we'll focus on how to get the most out of the freelancing lifestyle outside of the office.
In this course we'll meet for monthly Live Studio Sessions where students can ask the instructor questions and get answers in real time. In this module you'll get to watch previously recorded Q&A sessions.
I couldn’t be more impressed with Brad Hussey and more importantly the concepts and practical steps laid out by Brad in The Freelancing Freedom Course. I’m nearing the close of a successful 35 year corporate career and I want to transition into freelancing as a Web Developer. The only problem is: Where do I start? What do I learn? Where do I find clients? It’s overwhelming.
The course has helped me identify the skills I need to master, and the skills I need to hire others to complete. Brad gives practical steps to take so you never feel alone when you venture out of your comfort zone.
I will say this, the course takes a lot of effort! But I think this is the mark of a real course and I don’t see how I can possibly reach my goal of becoming a freelancer without high effort. Because of The Freelancing Freedom Course, my effort is in a focused direction and I look for that to pay-off in the long run as Brad guides me around some of the early pitfalls common to freelancers.

If you can say yes to any of the following questions, you and The Freelancing Freedom Course are a match made in heaven.
Did you say “yes” to any (or all) of these questions? Well, I’ve got good news for you… The Freelancing Freedom Course is a perfect fit for you.
And why is that?
Working for yourself, and building a profitable freelancing business is one of the best ways for you to take back your time, build an honest living, and enjoy an abundance of freedom. The Freelancing Freedom Course is the step-by-step roadmap that will help you finally experience that sort of freedom.
If you’ve tried freelancing before — or maybe you’ve tried your hand at websites like UpWork and Fiverr — but gave up, you just haven’t been looking in the right places. There’s an abundance of high-paying clients out there, but you need to know where to find them, and how to convince them to hire you. This course shows you exactly how to do that.
Freelancing income can be volatile — I like to refer to it as “Mountains and Valleys” — and if you don’t know how to “bridge” the valleys, and stabilize your income, you risk giving up on your business prematurely. I’ll show you how to “bridge” your valleys and create a more stable income in this course.
Everyone has commitments, and if you waited for “the perfect time” to start your freelancing business, you’d never start. Most people are told, “quit your job” in order to live your dream and build an online business. But that’s one of the biggest mistakes you could possibly make. There is a way to build your freelancing business on the side, all while maintaining the security of your full-time job. This course will show you how to uncover up to 40 hours of time in the week you didn’t know you had… plus, you’ll learn that one of your first clients is likely sitting right under your nose!
Oh, did I mention...
You can rest assured your investment in this program is protected with our 180-Day “First Paying Client” Guarantee
Here are the details:
First of all, if for any reason you change your mind about the course, and no longer want to be enrolled, simply let us know within the first 30 days of your purchase, and we’ll return 100% of your investment. No questions asked.
And as if that wasn’t enough...I’ll guarantee that you will get your first paying client within 180 days of enrolling, or you’ll get your entire investment back -- yes, you read that right!
If you don’t have your first paying client within the first 180 days of enrolling in The Freelancing Freedom Course -- it’s on me with our “First Paying Client” 100% Money-Back Guarantee. Plus, you can keep the course!
Simply show us that you’ve followed the course material step-by-step, completed the worksheets, and made an honest attempt at using our strategies to get your first paying client. If after all of that, you don’t have your first paying client within the first 180 days, you can have your money back AND keep the course.
How can I offer such a good guarantee?
I’m confident that this course — the video lessons, the strategies, the swipe scripts, the resources, the group coaching sessions, and the community — will absolutely give you the ability to book at least one paying client. I’m more than willing to guarantee that to you, because if this course can’t get you results, I didn’t earn your money. Getting an email from a student of mine, saying I’ve helped them get their first paying client is like my drug.
Why do you have to “show your work”?
If you’re serious about building your freelance business, and achieving freedom, you’re going to be putting in the hard work anyway — so it will be easy for you to show us that you’ve made a solid effort. I only want people who are serious about their business, and seeing results — asking you to “show your work” protects me from wasting my time with students are just looking for a free ride.
This leaves us with one last question...

I've just had a successful meeting with my dance school client re-finishing her site and further work. She's delighted with my work and has offered me further work but insists on paying me double my rate! Not only that she has thousands of followers on Facebook. She knows lots of people in business who need websites. So it's looking like I'll be busy till Christmas.
Using the strategies I learned in The Freelancing Freedom Course, I was able to book my first paid client — and I’m on track to book 3 more paid clients! You can’t help but turn what you learn in this course into paid clients.
Brad I’m just loving this.
