Why join our community?

What makes us special? Find out why we think our community stands out from the crowd and will be a valuable part of your journey as you take your freelancing career to the next level.

To become a successful freelancer, you need more than books, articles, videos, and podcasts. You need a community where you can connect with real people, learn from their experiences, and get tailored, practical, and actionable advice when you need it the most.

Some experts say you should use hourly rates. Others say use fixed or value-based pricing. Some experts say you should send cold emails and use job boards. Others say to attract clients using your own website.

Everyone’s freelancing career is unique, so how do you know what advice will work for you?

You need specific answers to your unique freelancing questions. That’s why our community exists — to help you find your own version of freelancing success, meet other freelancers, find the best resources, and have fun doing it.

Freelancing can be intimidating, isolating, and leave you pondering difficult questions at a time when you need answers the most.

Your freelancing journey is unique and your questions require tailored discussion — not generalized advice.

Books, articles, videos, and podcasts are great, but often leave you asking more questions like, “Will this really work?”

In our community, you can talk to other freelancers, meet people on the same path as you, ask questions, get answers, find out what worked for them, and what will work best for you!
