Millennials Have Been Given More Freedom Than Ever, But No Map.

We were raised to play by the rules of a generation that hasn’t learned how to change or adapt — and because of that, many Millennials feel stuck.

We were promised that if we just kept our heads down, got good grades and “did our job,” that it would all work out. That there was a predictable path to success. We thought we’d be safe.

But for many of us, it doesn’t feel safe at all.

Here’s the bad news...

If you work at a job that can be learned by anyone with "proper training," that job is going to become increasingly less valuable until it goes away entirely.

But here’s the good news...

The victors in the millennial generation will be those who are willing to take risks, find creative solutions to real problems and most importantly — take initiative without being asked.

Luckily, there is a growing group of young leaders who understand what is happening around us, and are ready to take their careers — and their lives — back into their own hands.

Are you one of those leaders?

If so, there’s a new program that you may be interested in learning more about.

Freelance Domination is a transformational, collaborative workshop that uses videos, group discussion, reading assignments and more to teach you how to develop valuable skills, find paying clients and build a remarkable business in the New Economy.

Registration is limited to just 150 students per enrollment period.

This is not an online course. This is preparation for the real world

I knew I had skills...but I didn't know how to use them. Freelance Domination helped me get myself out there! If you're thinking about signing up, I absolutely recommend that you do it!

- Al Clunnie

This program will give you the support, and the motivation, psychological help. The actual, concrete course material is so, so good... I consider this my own bridge between where I was and where I wanted to be.

Use your skills to make money. And make a difference.

The program lasts a full six weeks and will teach you everything you need to know about developing valuable skills, doing meaningful work and starting a thriving freelance business that attracts loyal customers who are eager to work with you.

Included in the program:

  • More than 40 video tutorials + Q&A
  • Access to private weekly group discussion
  • Sample proposals, project agreements, contracts & other documents to jumpstart your work
  • Access on mobile and web

But most of the learning won’t happen watching the videos or reviewing the material.

It will happen in the conversations you have with your peers. It will be through the continuous challenge of applying what you’re learning in real time, then getting feedback from a group of people who care.

Learn how to:

  • Identify your uniquely valuable skills and develop them into a freelance business
  • Spot opportunities in the market and create products and services that stand out
  • Create the type of business you want by choosing the right clients
  • Market your services honestly and develop deep trust with your clients
  • Negotiate effectively and charge what you’re worth

Will Freelance Domination teach you how to make money? Absolutely.

More importantly, though, you'll learn how to take smart risks, execute your ideas and get feedback when it counts. You're not just building a business. You're building a life.

Before Freelance Domination, my business was very sporadic. I really didn't have a blueprint, or any type of guidance. It just took so much energy out of me. I wanted to give up. Using strategies from the course, I've made over $19,000 in 3 months.

- Keyanna Mayfield

I didn't think I would've pieced everything together without Freelance Domination, to be honest. I'm glad that I joined when I did. I don't think there's any way I could have learned everything about finding and approaching clients without the course.

Not easy. But so worth it.

Freelancing is harder than having a regular job.

It’s harder because in order for clients to pay you, they’ll have to trust you first. And sometimes trust can take a while to earn. Most people would rather find an easier way to make a living. Life is challenging enough, isn’t it?

Sure, it’s easier to work at a place where somebody can tell you exactly when to show up, what to do and how to feel about it. But maybe easier shouldn’t be our goal.

Was it easy for the 20,000 people at a Ford Motor plant in Detroit who all lost their jobs on the same day?

Was it easy for the newly-minted young attorney who studied hard for years and graduated at the top of her class, but can’t find a single job that excites her?

It turns out that taking the path of least resistance is actually the express lane to a mediocre life of limited options and diminished earning potential. Freelancers tackle this truth head on and aren’t afraid to get dirty along the road to success.

Freelancers learn how to make themselves the asset, not wait for a company to choose them.

Who is the program for?

Freelance Domination is for anybody who is ready to learn what it takes to develop their ideas and market their freelance services with integrity. Over 2,000 students from 50+ countries have participated in past classes.

Our alumni are interesting and diverse, from a variety of fields. Here's a partial list of the types of students who have enrolled:

  • Writers and authors
  • Personal trainers
  • Artists and musicians
  • Athletes
  • Tutors
  • Marketers
  • Writers
  • Accountants
  • Personal chefs
  • Coaches
  • Yoga teachers
  • Pet sitters
  • Consultants
  • Interior decorators
  • Web designers and developers

Despite coming from all different fields. the core similarity between our students is that they care. They care about their work and they care about the impact they are having on the world through their business — and they are committed to helping each other get to the next level.

Does that sound like you?

How is the program designed?

The program is designed with you in mind. Using cutting-edge tools like Slack, Discourse, Zoom and Basecamp, we’ve designed a surprisingly intimate experience that lowers the barrier between information and action.

Our hope is that it will change what you think is possible for your life.

For 6 weeks, you’ll be slowly dripped the fundamentals of what it takes to start and grow a profitable freelance business doing meaningful work. The lessons will come in the form of videos, audio recordings and articles.

You will also be given an recommended reading list and list of supplemental materials.

You will have daily access to your peers to get instantaneous feedback on your ideas and weekly meetings in small groups to coordinate, brainstorm and problem solve.

It’s a program designed to work as hard as you do.

Here's a partial list of what we'll cover in the lessons:

  • Brainstorming and idea validation: how to identify which ideas to pursue.
  • Skill development: how to build your business while still learning your craft.
  • Positioning: how to stand out in a crowded market, and when to change markets.
  • Finding clients: not just any clients. The right ones for you.
  • Pitching: how to show a potential client your value without lowering your standards.
  • Negotiation: the art of getting what paid what you deserve.
  • Trust and integrity: how to build loyal, long term relationships with clients who refer you for life.

But that's just the beginning. There will be a ton of user-generated content from from the weekly lessons, including in-depth discussions based on specific actions you'll be asked to take each week. This workshop is designed to stretch you.

The best way to get the most from this program is to contribute more than you take, answer more than you ask and be present. It's time to dive in.

Why are only 150 students allowed per semester?

Because we care. And because we can. The purpose of this program isn't to make as much money a possible, or even to have the most students. It's about making the biggest impact for each and every person who joins.

With 150 students, it's still possible to form smaller groups, while still having enough collective brainpower to solve problems and keep the conversation moving.

Not too many. Not to few. Just right.

What if I fall behind?

You cannot “fall behind” in this program. Content is dripped out weekly for 6 weeks and you can access it forever. The discussions and live workshops with actual human beings are the real value of the program — and those continue after the initial 6 weeks.

Come when you can, but only enroll if you plan on coming.

When does it start?

The summer semester officially begins on July 31st and runs for 6 weeks until September 10th, 2017. After the semester is over, you’ll have access to all the digital content forever.

Freelance Domination really helped me to decide where my focus should be. It's so easy to find out what money-making skills you have with this course.

- Steve Eakin
