“Just wanted to tell you that I think your course is fantastic. You could charge plenty of money for information this valuable, so thank you for offering it to your readers for free.” — Kevin K., freelance writer
When I started freelancing, I didn't know what to charge. And I didn’t want to press my luck and risk losing work, so I billed conservatively — $50 an hour, or what my effective hourly rate was as an employee.
As my business grew, I started exploring why clients hired me (and why they didn't) and how they perceived the value I brought to the table. During this process, I learned a lot about what my clients really needed from me — and more than 10x'ed my rate.
With these 9 lessons I've prepared for you, you'll learn the exact tactics I use to win five figure a week contracts and that propelled me from being a solo freelancer to running a multi-million dollar agency.
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 33,000 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.
