“Which Rafter Should I Hang Myself From?”
In Late 2011, I realized that if I stayed at my dead end restaurant job one more day, I was probably going to hang myself from the charming, antique oak rafters of that God-forsaken steakhouse.
Not to be grim — but that’s simply how I felt.
I wasn’t in any serious danger of hurting myself (you don’t need to email me…really). But I was EXTREMELY fed up.
I was so TIRED with being limited to a meager paycheck when everything I wanted to do with my life required two things I didn’t have:
More free time
A lot more money
Now remember, this was 2011 and I’d just seen The Social Network. I was pretty juiced up, imagining that if I just had “the perfect idea”…or could somehow re-do everything and go to Harvard…I could be the next Zuckerberg and finally create something I loved that actually made money.
So I did a lot of meditating. And deep thinking. And agonizing. I was looking for that million-dollar idea. I prayed to a few different gods.
I even went to a psychic to help pull it out of me.
(Serious. Like…not a joke. I was looking for a screenshot of the receipt to show you, but my bank account won’t go back that far.)
3 months later, I was still at the restaurant begrudgingly scooping butter balls into plastic ramekins for pre-diabetics who shouldn’t have been eating that food anyway…when it hit me….
“I don’t need to come up with a new idea. I can just do something I’m ALREADY good at.”
It sounds like a shallow, obvious realization…but at the time, it was like it was like Harry Potter walked into my brain and turned the mother f***ing switch on.
If you don’t get the reference, you’re lamer than I am for making it
Fast forward to one year later and I’d started not one…but TWO profitable freelance businesses — a college admissions prep firm (offline) and a web design company (online).
Each generated THOUSANDS of dollars every month, while allowing me the freedom to schedule my life how I wanted. The restaurant was a distant memory.
I fell victim to TWO HUGE ROADBLOCKS along the way that almost took me down.
Chances are, if you’re on this journey, you will run into them as well.
Two Roadblocks Standing In The Way Of Starting (Or Growing) Your Freelance Business…And How To Overcome Them
Roadblock #1: “I don’t have any good ideas…”
I racked my brain for months on end looking for a profitable idea and came up completely empty handed. I basically assumed that if it wasn’t new, innovative or “sexy”, nothing I came up with would be worth any money.
Have you ever sat through an agonizing brainstorm session, only to reject every idea that came your way?
“No, that’ won’t work…”
“Somebody already did that…”
“Nobody would pay me for that…”
I thought like that for MONTHS. It’s really easy to feel bitter…or feel like your skills aren’t valuable.
Look at what some of the recent Freelance Domination 2.0 graduates are saying about their rocky beginnings:
Here’s something you need to understand: If you’ve EVER had a job before, you have a skill that someone else will pay you to perform. What’s in your brain is VALUABLE.
You already have PROOF that your skills are worth money…because you’ve already been paid to perform them for a company, right?
If you work as an accountant for $25/hour, the firm you’re working for most likely bills clients 3-4x that rate for you to do that work…and you’re the one putting in all the effort!
From that experience alone, you know:
There is a demand for your skills
The market will bear paying at LEAST $75-$100 an hour for good accounting services
But somehow, you’ve talked yourself into the idea that it’s “ok” to accept $25/hr.
Doesn’t that blow your mind?
Once I realized how valuable my skills really were, I decided that instead of working harder…or dedicating more hours to a job at the say pay rate…I could simply learn how to leverage what I already knew to make more money by cutting out the “middle man” and keeping much more of the money for myself.
That, my friends, is freelancing.
Almost anything you can think of can be turned into a freelance business…
The list goes on and on. But you get the picture.
All of these skills could be turned into a business that generates THOUSANDS of extra dollars every month — allowing you to stack up extra dough on the side…or quit your job if you want.
But the battle isn’t over. Once you realize that your knowledge IS powerful and valuable, you’ll inevitably stumble on the next hurdle — which is something that even experienced freelancers fall prey to…
Roadblock #2: “I’ll figure it out as I go along…”
Did you play sports, or participate in any clubs in high school or college?
Most of us did something extra-curricular because we enjoyed it.
Remember feeling of suiting up on game day, or performing in concert, or showcasing your work for others to see?
Finally being able to do something that, weeks or months before seemed impossible, is literally one of the best feelings you can ever have.
But the truth is, if you’ve ever built something from the ground up — especially a skill — you know that in order to see results, you have to go through a process that incrementally increases your proficiency until you get the result you’re looking for.
It’s NEVER as simple as “just doing it.”
It DOESN’T get easier. In fact, you could be doing it all wrong for years, costing yourself time, money and energy
Think about it like this…
Do you just pick up a violin and start playing Mozart without learning to read music?
Do you just strap on some football pads and run on the field Friday night without some serious practice first?
Do you just decide to start acting, and perform in a play without memorizing your lines?
You simply CAN’T develop any of those complex skills overnight without creating a system to practice and improve first.
So why do people try to launch freelance businesses without any roadmap in place to ensure that they’re actually making progress?
I think they’re forgetting one CRUCIAL element: Building a business is a SKILL.
You have to become SKILLED at identifying your profitable ideas, testing them, finding clients, and negotiating with them.
You have to become SKILLED at dealing with objections and using psychology to make clients choose you instead of other, cheaper alternatives.
You have to become SKILLED at creating scalable systems that allow you to get paid what you deserve for your work — and move your rates up with confidence.
Only a SYSTEM can help you build a skill.
This was a huge “a ha” for me and it forced me to take a hard look at what I was doing, and spend YEARS perfecting a step-by-step method for improving your my freelancing abilities until I was finally making the money I wanted.
The system is so powerful that at this point, I can essentially scale it up or down depending on my requirements. If I want to work a little harder to make some money, I can do that. If I want to take a break and scale it back, I can do that too.
Finally! A Proven, Step-By-Step System For Building A Thriving Freelance Business From Zero To Six-Figures…Without All The Frustration, Guesswork And Uncertainty That Comes With Starting A New Business
