The Guided Program
Designing Your Freelance Life + Business
Our first month is dedicated to getting full clarity, setting intentions, and developing the mindset to be a successful freelancer. We'll be laying the groundwork that will set you apart from the rest and help you to create a thriving and sustainable business and lifestyle.
Finding + Landing the Perfect Clients
Confidence is the biggest profit prohibitor for freelancers. This month, we'll be overcoming fear and self-doubt to find and land clients who we love (and who love us) with proven strategies and an action plan to close like a boss.

Learn how Afton went from making $8 per hour to over $150,000 per year by growing her skills, team, and agency. PLUS, her secrets for asking and getting the money you deserve (without them batting an eyelash), by having the right body language, discussion and email scripts, and creating badass proposals.
Keeping Clients Crazy Happy (and Wanting More)
A happy client makes a happy (and profitable) freelancer. This month, we'll be focusing on creating amazing client relationships that last, how to build a team that can support you, how to handle difficult clients, and even how to fire a client yourself (and feel great about it).
Taking it to the Next Level
Efficiently running a freelance business is the difference between being free and stuck. This month, we'll be digging into creating productive operating procedures for your business, investing in your business, creating extra sources of revenue, knowing how + when to build your team, and how to finally go from 9-to-5 to free.
In our final month, we'll be diving into specific issues that you're dealing with, with intensive coaching sessions and a battle plan to get you to where you want to be. It's all about accountability. No one is left behind.
Who is the mentorship for?
Freedom-seekers. Hustlers. Adventurers. Those who want to break free from the confines of the 9-to-5 and cultivate their freedom. Those who want to create a life and business by their own design.

Gain Clarity + Direction
Often times, we don't know what direction to go, so we stay stuck, never realizing our dreams. But what if you could gain valuable mentorship from a like-minded community? That's just what happened to Deanna, giving her clarity on her business, services, and how she's grow for years to come. And the best part? She stayed unstuck.
