Over the years, I’ve had the privilege and honor of helping tens of thousands of freelancers like you level-up the business behind your business. I’ve created articles, podcasts, courses, conferences, and more. But I kept hearing one thing again and again:
You know what you need to do, but you want help in applying it all to your business.
You don’t want to be told to choose a niche, you want a positioning expert to help you choose YOUR niche.
You don’t just want to know how to write great sales copy for your marketing, you want an expert copywriter to help you with YOUR website.
You don’t want to be told how to market your website, you want a Facebook ads guru to sit down and work with you on YOUR ads.
You’ve told me what you want, and I’ve listened. Over the last 3 years, I’ve assembled an all-star team of subject matter experts — people who keynote conferences, write wildly successful books, and coach freelancers for thousands of dollars a month — to join me in delivering the ultimate transformational course for freelancers and small agency owners like you.
If you thought we were going to dump a bunch of video modules on you and wish you good luck, think again! You'll move through our lineup of 7 subject matter experts who will individually work with you to strengthen one particular facet of your business.
Each phase of the program includes personalized live training, assignments, and 1-on-1 assistance and review.
After you join, you'll be assigned a dedicated success coach. This is somebody who's #1 concern is helping you overcome any self-doubts, struggles with imposter syndrome, and “I can’t do this” objections that might arise during the course.
We’re going to be reworking a lot of what you’re doing in your business, and we know this is sometimes uncomfortable. Despite our desire to make improvements in our businesses, change is often hard. Your success coach is focused on helping you through the entire process.
Brennan and the teaching staff will be available every Monday through Friday to answer any questions you have for us.
If you're stuck with one of your course assignments or just going through a rough patch with your business and need some advice, you'll be able to join us live, webcam-to-webcam, and ask us anything.
(Office hours are scheduled to be at least one hour a day, depending on student demand. The times will fluctuate throughout the week to accomodate all time zones.)
That's more than 20 hours a month of access to a team of expert consultants who can dish out the right advice when you need it.
At the heart of the Academy is you.
We can help help you build a six-figure a year freelancing business, but you need to be open and willing to letting us make some major changes in the way you work.
Here's what we'll need from you:
Tuition is currently $6,000 when financed over $500 a month for 12 months. Upfront and quarterly payment discounts are also available.
“Brennan and his team completely changed my mindset from a 'freelancer' to running a 'studio'. This course had a direct impact on increasing leads, getting the guts to directly reach out to prospective 'ideal clients', increasing my prices, and properly positioning my proposals to warm leads. It easily pays for itself.”

When arranging monthly cohorts of 30 new students, preference is given to those who applied first. There are currently 79 applicants ahead of you.
You'll be joining 7 "mini-courses" (phases) that are each led by a subject matter expert. We've tailored these courses to focus on one facet of your business, and each subsequent phase of the program builds on the previous phase.
Each phase is 3 weeks in length, and during that time you and your core group will meet with your teacher. He or she will begin the session by teaching you about a new concept, and then will spend the rest of the session helping you apply what you've learned or helping you with what you were assigned with during the previous session. Each session lasts about an hour, but sometimes goes long based on how the live discussion plays out.
While you're going through each phase, you'll also be getting short assignments multiple times a week over email. These assignments are meant to give you small, 5-minute assignments that can help you sharpen your skills.
At the end of each 3 week phase, you'll have a week off to absorb what you learned and prepare for the next phase.
You'll be moving through a series of subject matter experts, but we want to make sure you stay grounded and have someone there who owns your success from beginning to end. Twice a month you'll meet with your success coach and your core group for about an hour. During this time, you'll share what you've been working on, what you're struggling with, and what you plan on doing next. These Mastermind sessions help you stay accountable to your coach and your peers.
We do encourage you to block out the time you're going to meet with both your teachers and your success coach. This shouldn't be time you make available to clients for meetings. It's important that you commit to attending each session.
That being said, "life happens." When we meet with you after you apply, we'll ask you about your schedule so we can put you in a core group that meets weekly at a time that works for you. And should you miss a session or two, each is recorded and you'll be able to catch up with your teacher separately over email or chat (sometimes they're available to meet privately at a time that's convenient for you, but there's no guarantee.)
After you apply and talk with us on the phone, we're going to ask you to put down a deposit to claim your spot in the upcoming cohort. If you decide to not move forward, we'll refund your deposit.
Once the course kicks off, you're eligible for a full refund during the first 30 days if you decide this isn't right for you. After 30 days, we'll pro-rate a refund based on how much of the course you've gone through. (Meaning: If you drop out midway through, we'll refund half your tuition.)
However, because of the rotational nature of the course, if you need to take a pause during the course you can. While we don't encourage it, we'll find a way to help you start back where you left off. We know it's hard to anticipate what the next 7 months of your life will be like, so we'll go above and beyond to make sure that no matter what life throws at you — we're able to help.
The live sessions are all hosted via Google Hangouts, which is a video conferencing platform. You'll need good Internet, a webcam, and a microphone.
We also ask that you have a strong command of English. And while it's OK to ultimately have your website and marketing material be in another language, we ask that you write it — for the purposes of this class — in English. You can translate it to another language once the teaching staff has had a chance to work with you on refining and improving it.
The course is systematic — each phase builds on the previous phases, and contributes toward future phases. If you're an ace at a particular subject that we cover, that's an opportunity to contribute to the discussions and help support your peers — just like other members will help support you at times. Plus, we have a very opinionated take on every subject we cover in this course. There's a very strong chance what we think "content marketing" (for example) means isn't what you think it means!
You've been freelancing or running a small agency for a while, and have hit a plateau in your business. You're struggling to setup processes and systems in your business, but you keep falling back to the way things have always been and you're not actually growing. You have an investment mindset and are willing to commit to a course like this and make incremental and constant changes toward the long-term success of your business. And finally, you're OK with tough love when appropriate :-)
