Free Online Freelancing Course / Freelancing Videos

I’m a very successful freelancer. Last year I earned £183,580 ($253,633.60 US at the time of writing). Not only do I earn a lot of money but I have a lifestyle that makes most of my friends jealous. I’ve been to Australia for the Ashes, I’ve been to Abu Dhabi for the Grand Prix. I’ve watched England play football around the world, I’ve watched West Ham play in Europe (and around the country most weekends), I’ve been to a Rugby World Cup Final, I’ve been to the World Championships in Darts and so on. I travel regularly, own my own home in London at the age of 29 and drive a brand new Land Rover. If someone knows how to make a success as a freelancer it’s me.

Back in 2015 I created an online course for freelancers. I’ve now decided to provide this information for free. Whilst some of the information is now outdated due to Elance and oDesk joining up to become Upwork, the vast majority of information is still very relevant. The tips inside this course are how I became a successful freelancer. They are all from my own experience and I’m sure even seasoned freelancers could learn a lot from it. I apologise in advance for the recording quality – it was my first attempt at recording anything online. Each video only lasts a few minutes so it’s easy to watch a few videos at a time. Here are the links:
