Helping the world’s battle-weary freelancers to earn more.

This online video-based training course is for all new or experienced freelancers who want (or need) to earn more from their expertise, whether full or part-time.

Freelancing is often a viable, or the only option for those who have been made redundant later in life, can’t find another job or need to top up their income when they discover the rules have changed and they won’t be able to access their pensions for years later than they were expecting.

Maybe you want more flexibility to look after your young family. Or you’re an experienced battle-weary freelancer who’s looking for new ideas and some inspiration. After a long career as an employee, maybe you don’t know where to start as a freelancer. This course is for you all.

So many freelancers are brilliant at what they DO, but hate the idea of having to ‘sell’ themselves. This online training course will not only show you WHAT you need to do, you’ll also learn in detail, HOW to create a solid freelance foundation that attracts more in-bound enquiries for higher-quality work, from appreciative clients, so you can earn more. It is practical and based on the REAL world of freelancing in this increasingly competitive and cash-strapped economic environment.

Delivered by a British freelancer with 40 years experience, the live seminar was originally featured in The Sunday Times.

What freelancers thought of the ‘live’ seminar

“… a must for anyone who is a freelance or is thinking of becoming one. You will realise that all your doubts and concerns are shared by everyone else, and come away with so many good ideas … Too many courses are built on theory, but you know where you are with Roy as he has been there himself. No hype, no bullshit, but sometimes a little close for comfort! Word of mouth recommendation is meant to be the most effective form of advertising. I am encouraging every freelance I know to book on Roy’s next seminar as a matter of urgency!
