"This helped me navigate my freelance engagements. They guided me through my rates, scoping out projects, and how to communicate with my clients. I cannot recommend this highly enough!"
"These insights on how to transition from a full-time role to freelance work were invaluable. This course helped frame my thinking around how I can best contribute value to businesses as a freelancer, and most importantly, they instilled the confidence I needed to take the leap."
After 4.5 years in Operations at Uber, I started helping start-ups on a part-time, contract basis, averaging $20,000 per month in half the number of hours than my full-time job. This allowed me to manage my own time, more than support myself, and work on high value projects that I genuinely enjoyed.
I became passionate making this possibility a reality for everyone. It enables you to pursue a passion, start a business, or spend more time with your family.

When done right, full-time freelancers make more money than when they were employed, including the additional costs of being a freelancer (healthcare, bookkeeping, etc.), in fewer hours. If you can picture a role you’d want to have based on your skillset and what that salary would be, you can expect to make the same or more as a freelancer (if done correctly). Yes, you can also get equity as a freelancer if you’re targeting start-ups.
As much as we love being on our own, freelancing does have some additional costs. The biggest one is your own health insurance, and you likely will have others such as forming an LLC, keeping track of your books, and having an additional tax return. You’ll likely make more than enough to cover all of this, and still make more than a salary you’d get at an employer. Further, Mylance walks you through all of this to ensure you set things up correctly.
Freelancing means there’s very little oversight or structure in your life. You’re in charge, meaning you need to be self-motivated. Further, you need to be able to ask for projects and negotiate well. We have a great way to “sell” without mastering traditional sales techniques, but you’ll still need to know your worth, stand up to clients, and be your own advocate. We believe anyone can learn this, but it takes some work and confidence!
It depends on the company, but we generally think it’s a good idea, especially if you’re looking at a start-up. You never know what a start-up is like until you’re there, and this way you get to know the leadership, your manager, and the team before you make a bigger commitment. Joining a company is a huge decision, and this allows both sides a trial beforehand. Further, if it is a good match, you’ll likely get a way better offer once they see what you’re capable of.
Yes. If you follow the steps, and listen to our guidance this course works. It has for countless folks before you, and it can work for you as well.
