Escape the anxiety and build a consistent £5k/month freelance business

Are you a dev who’s amazing at the technical stuff but not so good at the business stuff?

Does the thought of sales and marketing make you shudder? Does schmoozing new clients sound like your idea of hell?

That’s OK.

We were never taught the right way to do it. All we ever see, all we ever remember, are people doing it badly.

That’s why I’m here to help.

You can approach your business just like any other problem

That means doing your research, trying stuff out and analysing the results.

Marketing isn’t hand-wavy magic. It’s just test and measure.

Sales isn’t sleazy persuasion. It’s just asking the right questions.

And making a profit isn’t greed. It’s just one vehicle for you to live a decent, fulfilling life.

It took me years to learn these simple lessons.

But learning those things transformed my life and meant that my software business stopped eating away at my time and causing me stress and misery. And instead started becoming the place where I could do what I loved, writing fantastic code, for people who appreciated the work I was doing.

Even better, I found out that I love it when I can help other people learn their way through the same business minefield.

Building a business that supports you and your life is an essential. It’s not enough to just muddle through, it’s not enough to be constantly anxious and worry about your future, and it’s definitely not enough when your business is leading you to burn out and beyond.

Getting your business functioning properly gives you the time, space and energy to focus on the things that matter to you. Instead of wasting your attention on distractions and busy work, instead of sacrificing your talents on things that just don’t count, you can concentrate on having a massive impact – on yourself and the people around you. All whilst doing what you love.

The Freelance Action Plan

A ten week guided programme to design and implement the five pillars of a successful business. Unlike online training courses, where you sign up, watch the first few videos and then forget about it, this programme is interactive. I give you a simple task each day and check in with you when you’re struggling. Everything’s delivered through a message board; you don’t need to waste time every day watching long-winded PowerPoint videos. But if you do need to speak to me, you can message me directly or book a daily “office hours” call.

This fully engaged programme costs £649/month (plus U.K. VAT). You will be given tasks that guide your business forwards plus, importantly, you will be held accountable to ensure you make good progress.

The Five Pillars

If you’re just looking for help with one of the five pillars of running a business, you can choose an individual programme. These are run as interactive daily tasks, delivered over the course of two weeks.

Each programme costs £249/month (plus VAT) and include ongoing access to the course materials and accountability checks to ensure you keep moving forwards.

Instant Assessment

A one hour financial health check on your business. We look at where the cash is flowing today, where it need to be flowing and you get to ask me anything you need to know about moving your business forwards.

Just £99 (inc VAT)
