After the cost of running my agency (paying my team and keeping the lights on) crossed six-figures a month, I knew I couldn't rely on dumb luck any longer to keep me in business.
Like many new agency owners, I carried over a lot of the business habits that I had from years from freelancing full-time. The biggest problem was that I was still relying on random referrals or chance to get get new clients.
This worked... for a while.
But eventually, I realized that I couldn't just rely on luck to keep me in business. If I wanted to run a business, I had to act like a business.
In this short, week-long free email course I cover the mistakes I made and lessons I learned in going from running a fly-by-night freelancing shop to building a business that brought in high-value clients consistently.
You'll learn about what clients are really looking for, and how this truth requires a total rethinking of how you get clients.
I'm Brennan Dunn, and for the last decade I've been working with clients. I started out as a freelancer, and after 3 years my business grew to an agency of 11 employees and a $2 million in annual revenue.
I love freelance consulting, but I'm hell-bent on helping other freelancers learn how to master the BUSINESS of freelancing. A lot of us (myself included) started freelancing because we're technically solid... but end up learning the hard way being successful is much more than just being good at what we do.
In addition to this course, I also write and podcast weekly for my audience of over 45,000 freelancers. I'm also the founder of Planscope, a project management tool. I live in Virginia with my wife, two daughters, three cats, one dog, two guinea pigs, and pet rat.
I've designed this course to give you a start-to-finish playbook for reliably raising your rates. Each lesson is compact and succint, and takes about 5 minutes to read. I've also included an interactive worksheet with each lesson that will help you apply it to your unique business.
