Because as a designer, you were told to get a stable job so you could move towards security.

Only to find yourself at an in-house job that overworks you, expects unlimited revisions, and makes you feel like a pencil pusher instead of the creative thinker you want to be.

Unless you’re one of the lucky ones to have landed a job where your boss sees something in you and nurtures it.

But that's rare!

Sure, most people would be patting themselves on the back and consider themselves fortunate to find a job in such a competitive market.

And because of societal expectations, you keep trying to make it work and the problems you face at your job include things such as:

→ Eating at your desk while finishing up a project
→ Limited earning potential 
→ Less flexibility
→ Working long hours

Not to mention you’re moonlighting as a freelancer so you can make up for the salary you wish you were getting.

You had enough risk-taking in your blood and went off on your own to run the show your way.

But you still don’t know how to manage the business side of freelancing and have been left burned (and poorer) by the experience of trying to put the pieces together.

Is it your portfolio?

You’ve created things you’re proud of here and there. 

Is it your pricing?

You can’t get enough clients to sustain yourself financially.

Freelancing is a long term game and the best days are still ahead of you!

While the freelancing lifestyle can give you anxiety with all that you have to manage, it does bring a better work/life balance, more control over your schedule, and results in less stress and better overall health.

And the path to get there is going to take more than just checking your email or social media accounts every hour hoping someone messaged you with details about your next project until you…

This course is practical. It teaches the business side of freelancing in an easy-to-understand format. Pre-lance also thoroughly covers the administrative and internal side of freelancing while teaching you how to position yourself as a professional. The material covered in this course is not taught in design schools.

100% yes! Since you’ll have lifetime access, anytime we add or modify content inside the course, you’ll see the updates in real time!

You can! But one of the biggest advantages in purchasing this course is that all the information is structured so you can work towards real income in a step-by-step format. If you’ve been freelancing for less than two years, then chances are you’re not sure where to even start in creating a sustainable freelancing business. How would you know what to search for if you don’t know what you need yet? Pre-lance has taken the research process out for you so all you have to do is hit play, take notes, and start taking action!

The course starts as soon as you enroll. It’s a self-paced online course so you get to decide when you start and when you finish. There are over 4.5+ hours of material as part of the course and you can space it over several weeks or binge it in one weekend!

After enrolling, you’ll have unlimited access to the course across any and all devices you own.

We only want you to maintain access to this course if it will provide value for you. If you’re unsatisfied with the material in this course and you feel this course didn’t help you unravel the mysteries that come with freelancing, then contact us in the first 7 days after enrolling and you’ll receive a full refund. Just email support@pre-lance.com.
