Build a Business Clients Will Value

If you are going to be successful you need a roadmap. Something or someone to guide you along your journey and help you avoid common pitfalls that cripple freelancers.

Your Value Doesn’t Decrease Based on Someone’s Inability to See Your Worth

I remember working at a company and it was time for my yearly review. After all my hard work I was rewarded with no raise and more work.

At this point I realized the only way my skills could truly be valued was to build my own business, but I didn’t know what to do or where to start? I had the technical and creative side down, but the business side of things was confusing.

I learned freelancing the hard way. I spent hours searching the internet looking for tools and business advice that could help me become a better freelancer. This was not the most efficient way to learn. Not all the information was in one place, and it was time-consuming to find.

I eventually enrolled in MBA program because I didn’t know what I didn’t know. During this time I was able to translate what I learned in my MBA to my freelance business and I began to see great results.

Unlock Your Unique Business Value

The Intersection of Business and Creativity

Though I learned useful information, business school didn’t teach me the practical business skills I needed to survive: How do I talk to clients? Pricing? Contracts? Can I make a living? These were questions only answered through the experience of working with real clients.

I don’t want you to learn the hard way through trial and error like I did. I want to empower you with everything I learned about building a business. I want you to get the start that I wish I had.

  • For any freelancer considering how to get their business to the next level — attracting better clients, improving their business — Nathan's Freelance Jumpstart is an excellent resource. I wish I had access to it when I was getting started growing my freelance business.

Jumpstart Your Business

Your journey to launching a business begins here. Every business starts with one simple thing: creating value around an idea and making that idea happen.

Charge What You're Worth

Don’t make the mistake of trying to decide what to charge. Pricing is not a decision; it is a strategy. Discover what strategy works best and get paid based on the value you provide.

Attract High Value Clients

How do you find clients? The better question is, how can you attract the right type of clients? Structure your business to bring clients to you.

Validate Your Business Idea

What if I told you there was a way to know if your business was going to work before you invest time and money? Use your creative skills to test potential success.

Get Paid. Faster

At first, I could not get clients to pay on time and sometimes the clients would not pay at all. Currently, clients now client me how soon they can pay me.

Increase Your Ability to Win Projects

Why do some freelancers get work while others get passed over? Communication. Communicate your value using a process to present project proposals that win.

  • Freelance Jumpstart allowed me to offer more value to my clients and become more efficient in my business. I now have a newfound confidence that I am on the right path as a freelancer.

After learning some marketable skills with the Adobe suite, I jumped into the world of freelancing and I spent countless nights searching the web to trying to learn the business of freelancing the hard way.

When I am not teaching freelancers to level up their business you can find me on twitter, writing on my blog and working with brands expand their reach on the web.
