Bradley Jacobs, CEO of Mylance

How we got here

Hi, I'm Bradley Jacobs, Founder and CEO of Mylance. In 2014, I joined Uber in Operations, eventually working there for 4.5 years across the Rides, EATS, and Freight business lines. After Uber, I knew I wanted to work for myself, but I wasn't sure what that would look like. So, I took a chance.

Given my tech experience, I asked a few start-ups if I could help them part-time with their marketplaces. It worked. I didn't know how much to charge, and asked for $287/hr. They agreed to $250/hr. I was shocked. I had no idea this life existed. I was working 25 hours per week, making $20,000 per month.

It had to end soon, right? But it didn't. I found another client, and then another, all for similar rates. The money was great, but I also genuinely enjoyed working with these companies. I was adding a ton of value, working on my own terms, and had the flexibility that earned me a lot of free time. Free time to pursue other passions, including testing start-up ideas for a company.

As I continued this freelance work, I started helping friends and colleagues with their freelance businesses. As I continued to help more people, I couldn’t keep helping everyone for free. So I built a course that friends could use to guide them in their freelance journeys. And it was working - my peers were having the same successes I saw!

It was incredibly fulfilling to help others live this life I'd experienced. It enables you to pursue a passion, start a business, or spend more time with your family.

As Mylance’s Bootcamp has evolved, we’ve helped dozens of people hone their niche, and use their tech experience to find high-paying clients, often replacing their previous income and then some, in a fraction of the number of hours! 

At Mylance, we aim to help you manage your work life with intention, and make room for the other amazing things in life. This bootcamp is just the start in enabling the freelance life for everyone.

What do we offer?

We give you the ability to work on your time, add meaningful value to companies, and make the money you deserve, all while having the work-life balance of your dreams. Our bootcamp gives you all the tools you need to start on that journey; once you have established your freelance business we also offer bookkeeping services to keep you on top of your accounts.

Bootcamp FAQs

Why did you start Mylance?

After 4.5 years in Operations at Uber, I started helping start-ups on a part-time, contract basis, making more than my Uber salary in half the number of hours. 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.

At Mylance, we aim to help you manage your work life with intention, and make room for the other amazing things in life. This bootcamp is just the start in enabling the freelance life for everyone.

How much will I make freelancing?

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.

What other costs might I incur as a freelancer?

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.

What else should I know about freelancing?

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!

Should I freelance before I join a company?

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.

Does this bootcamp work?
