Have you struggled to find freelance jobs regularly on LinkedIn, Upwork, or Fiverr?

On average, my students earn an additional $1500-2500/week with regular coaching sessions on platforms like LinkedIn, Upwork, and Fiverr.
As one of the top 1% of full-time freelancers, I have built a career spanning decades where full-time employment is no longer a worry. Many freelancers give up early, thinking that running a freelance business and finding the next project is too difficult. As your freelance mentor I will help you figure out your goals, break down specific steps, and help you achieve them with detailed assignments just for you.
Our focus during your freelancing business coaching is to design a program focused on your growth and set you free to choose the life that works for you. All around the world I'm coaching freelancers from South to North America, through Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.
As our coaching sessions are online via video on Zoom, Google Meet, or another platform that suits you best, I will help you take advantage of the digital economy for the greatest growth. I provide the resources and expertise to help you on your journey to success as I know I had always wanted a mentor for advice. But never had access to one online.

During our sessions I review your personal and professional branding, acting as a both a business coach and a marketing strategy coach help you bring in new freelance work through inbound and outbound marketing strategy.

Hire a freelance coach to help build your freelance business.
There has never been a better time to begin a successful freelance business.
Coaching that makes you stand out in the crowd.
I am here to ensure that clients see your talent and aptitude for growing your business so that you can help them grow theirs. My design, build, and writer strategy aims to get you the contract work that is highly profitable and helps both the business you are working with and you as an independent contractor.
Writing is an incredibly important skill when building your freelance business and my coaching program both walks you through my step-by-step process but also includes a tailor-made freelance journey to help you build your freelance business to the level that you want.
When we work together to build your freelance journey, we aim to help you build the life you want through the financial freedom that running a freelance business can provide when done correctly. I make sure that your investment in learning gives you the best chance at success by giving you the skills to produce the growth I have experienced.
The economy is completely different in this digital industry, and your freelance business thinking must change to set yourself free. I give you all of the resources I have learned as a professional freelance business owner for over two decades.
My freelance coaching program revolves around these major lessons:
PERSONAS is designed to teach you how to identify your clients so you can stop “hoping” for a response and start talking with potential clients who will want to hear from you.
PROFILES is designed to teach you how to write an effective profile on Upwork, LinkedIn, or any other freelance platform or social network.

PROCESS is designed to help you instill confidence in your client that you know the end-to-end system for a successful project with the aim of keeping all projects within scope.
PRICING is designed to help you build your pricing structure so that your clients aren’t excluded based on price alone. I will also teach you how to price your services, and increase your pricing over time so that you are in the upper market rate.

Who is this coaching for?
Are you a...
- Virtual Assistant?
- Financial Expert?
- Business Owner?
Although I am a coach focused on graphic design, copywriting, website development, and marketing, my private, one on one lessons will help anyone develop a profitable career with practical lessons to help you achieve your life and business goals.
Each session as your coach is a one-hour call that focuses on your goal and helps leave you with an idea, or ten, to continually evolve your career. During our one-hour call, I review your plan and help you devise the strategy for your future business achievement.
I help you achieve business goals and fill your sales pipeline with actionable steps you can do on the same day and long-term business goals to reach for in the future. During our coaching call, I welcome you to ask any questions you feel are relevant to achieving your business goals. Each session can be a combination of self-directed specific goals and actionable steps I give you that you can work towards.
Your life. Built on a foundation of freelancing.
My goal is to give you the freedom to earn the income you want without relying on looking for an employer to give you a full-time career. Freelance is a career, and the sky is the limit on how much money you want to be paid.
As your business coach, I help you on your freelance journey to build the freelance career of your dreams. With decades of experience, I know the ins and outs of success, whether you are a virtual assistant or a software engineer. My business coaching students come from around the world and work in numerous freelance industries. Your freelance journey is unique to you, and you need a coach who can answer your specific questions when you have specific problems. Your business coaching sessions are completely tailored to your freelance journey and hit goals and milestones along the way.
I coach students globally.
I have coached freelancers from around the world, and I can help anyone, but I am especially talented at helping freelancers from developing countries such as India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, and the Philippines build outstanding freelance careers.
Many people starting a business believe they must be in a specific location to succeed. This was especially true of start-ups wanting to go to San Francisco to "make it big." One thing that the COVID pandemic forced us to realize is that freelancing talent is independent of location.
No matter where you are, a successful freelancing business is at your fingertips. Click away at that mouse and keyboard, and you have instantly connected to other business professionals just a call away.
I coach any industry.
Whether you are in the creative, technical, sales, or marketing fields, I can help you get hired and build a stable financial future. I have helped professional freelancers in writing, marketing, strategy, and even investment with growth.
When we work together to build your business and the life balance you want, I focus on your specific goals as your coach.
Everyone I coach wants the same thing, to stand out in the crowd to the person who will hire them. As your coach, I listen to your goals on what you want for your business and life and help you develop and evolve a plan that will work with you as you grow.
Coaching to optimize both physical and mental health.
If you are focused on balance and health, whether that is mental health or physical health, or both, I have worked with professional coaches in psychology and physiology to build myself into a professional freelancing coach.
As your business coach, I will push you with encouragement and confidence to succeed, but our private calls will never push you to break. I suggest weekly sessions to help you with your journey to achieve your goals.
With my background in competitive sports at a professional level, I have had a coach for pretty much everything, whether endurance, strength or mental resiliency. This background prepared me well for business and to build the confidence I needed to take on any company as a client.
I remember the encouragement I received that helped me achieve my goals and my optimal life.
Leaders need coaching too.
My business flourished when I sought the help of a coach, and I believe all of the most capable leaders depend on a business coach, or even multiple coaches to optimize each aspect of their life.
Think of your business coaching as an investment in achieving goals that make you profitable, so that you can easily skip the issues that freelancing professionals often stumble upon as they learn independently.
It took me twenty years to call myself free and successful, my goal as your business coach is to shorten that path for you regardless of what industry you decide in which to build your freelancing business.
Freelancing is fun, and the sky is the limit.
As a self-employed person, you can jump from being one of the many part-time freelancers who earn only a small amount to deciding exactly how much money you want to earn to support your lifestyle.
I help you build your business as an independent contractor going from your first projects to managing an agency and lifting you up to become the best freelancer you can be. With business coaching that is highly effective and grounded in experience, you will get practical steps to grow your freelance biz!
Freelancers often ask how they can get their first job on Upwork, Fiverr, LinkedIn, or any of the many platforms. I explain how you can stand out and get your next job quickly while managing a consistent workload of freelancing projects.
I help you create the services employers are looking for to leap your freelancing and earn the pay you want. I teach the exact system I use on a daily basis to build my future so you can use it to build yours.
We focus on building a coaching program together to help you with your investment in your freelancing business and to ensure your best possible chance.
Want to work 10 hours per week or 100? Both are fine!
Freelance work is an amazing source of income as there is no limit, it's up to you and your skills to determine the job you want. The beauty of being self-employed is that, like me, you can work half of the day and enjoy the rest while earning $250-500/hour on high-ticket projects and building stability where you consistently bring in new freelancing customers.
If you want to start freelancing full-time and get your ideal clients instead of just one-off projects, my online courses are packed with step by steps tips to get started, get more clients, refine your cold pitching, and earn a great income! If you feel overwhelmed with one-on-one freelance coaching, this course is perfect for your own pace.
Freelancing as a designer, developer, writer, or marketer is equally lucrative, and millions of new businesses are looking to hire your talent. Design and develop websites? That's great! There is tons of work. You just need to define the companies to aim at and communicate the benefits you offer those companies.
Build a life that is free with me as your business coach.
Talent is rare, and you know you have it, you just don't know how to help the customer hire you. I coach gig workers to negotiate for themselves with their employer so they can see that you are the person with the talent they need.
I teach by using specific examples during business coaching sessions which you can explore and implement to make your idea of becoming one of the best freelancers a reality with the pay you want.
Independent workers in a freelancing business have huge advantages over those seeking to simply get one job. With over 186 current clients, if one client fires me, it's no problem. I want this same stability for all freelancers and I'm here to teach all freelancers exactly what I do as your business coach.
I aim to help you stop seeking employment and have the company and its employees come to you. As your business coach, I give you assignments that will help you earn far more than you do in a full-time job, and truly make the sky the limit on your income.
Your first freelance job.
During our coaching lessons, I will help walk you through the system I use one on one to get your first freelance job.
I show you how to find the business you want to work with as a freelancer, communicate with them, secure the project and earn the pay you want.
I explain all the personal branding and marketing communications you require to continually add tasks you can complete earning the income you want as a freelancer.
Your first $100,000.
There is a milestone that every freelancer wants to achieve, and remains a mystery to 95% of all freelancers. That's making $100,000/year. I currently earn around $350,000-400,000/year as a freelancer. That is far higher than employees at major companies such as Apple, Google, or Netflix.
Reaching this level requires a lot of work, and as your accountability partner, I require your complete commitment to the business and company you want to work with. High-quality work is a base requirement. I help build you up to be in the top 1% in your field. As your accountability partner, I expect complete focus and commitment.
This can be done completely online. I work in Toronto and Brazil as my family is mixed with my wife, a Brazilian, and me, a Canadian. We easily support our growing family on my single income, and I want to give the option to have the same for every freelancer should they choose a similar path.
As your coach, I build your business coaching plan for your life and goals.
It's an amazing life. Time to get started!
Our weekly calls give you the practical skills and encouragement to design a coaching program and plan of action that is the most helpful to your success. Each next step is carefully guided so that you believe in what you are creating through one on one video calls I share both my background and ever-evolving expertise and advice to pass on the knowledge you need for success.
The journey of a million miles or your first million dollars starts with the first step to the discovery and understanding of what you are capable of on your search for a successful business. My background and advice help you create personal financial knowledge on what it takes to create a career as a business owner.
Our coaching calls and strategy will challenge your beliefs about what is possible in business. As your personal coach I want to help you for life, work together on strategy, writing, and marketing your business to give you a life where you feel free and balanced.
My coaching program is built to support you.
Many in the freelance coaching industry think that you must hustle hard and work constantly to become a financial success. My approach is to build a coaching program around your unique needs and a strategy that you feel comfortable completing at your speed.
So what are you waiting for in selecting a business coach to help you build the life you deserve.
