Action steps

Just like what we are doing here, this week try something new that you’ve wanted to. Either start a blog (or bring to back to life), email a high end lead you’ve been afraid of, get out of your comfort zone, try raising your rates, etc.

“I still can't believe you don't charge for this course.”
Struggling to find and close projects? Need some help in figuring out how to charge what you're worth? Join more than 25,000 freelancers who have transformed the way they sell and pitch clients.
I can't thank you enough for everything you're doing to share your knowledge and experience with us. I've been reading and listening to a lot of "gurus" out there and often times feel like their approaches are a bit too gimmicky or lack what I appreciate about your content the most: genuinely caring about the client's needs. I read every word of every lesson many times over and I could truly feel my mindset shifting.
