What it Means to Run Your Own Digital Freelance Business


What would it mean if you could...

Work from anywhere, be it home, a coffee shop, or a tiny island far, far away?

Take time when your soul needs it the most?

Make your own hours to accommodate the things you really love?

Earn an abundant living and not worry about making enough money?

And make a greater impact on your world and the world of others?


If you're tired of...

Schlepping into work and not having time for the things or people you love...

Not making the money you need or deserve to live abundantly...

Being ignored at work when you know your ideas are hugely valuable...

Giving everything to your job with little or no satisfaction...

Not giving more time, resources, and energy to your family and friends...

Not loving what you do and getting satisfaction from doing it...


...then this is where you need to be.


Work From Home, a Coffee Shop, or an Island Far, Far Away


The Guided Program

Month One

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. 

Month Two

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.

Month Three

Moneh, Moneh, Moneh

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.

Month Four

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). 

Month Five

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

Month Six

Intensive Coaching

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. 

The World is Changing,
and So Should Your Career

Say Goodbye to the 9-to-5 and Hello to Your Freedom
