Is the Bootcamp for me?
Successful Bootcamp participants typically have 5+ years of experience at a start-up or established tech company, and are interested in using their experience to consult for start-ups either part-time or full-time. This is an investment in yourself, so you can work for yourself, in a flexible and fulfilling way.
Our customers have experience in a major business function: Operations, Strategy, Product, Marketing, Business Development, Engineering, Sales, PR, Communications, HR, etc. As long as you have a specific value to add to a company, you can use your experience to consult for companies, and we can help you launch your consulting business so you start using that experience to work with clients.
What is the learning format?
The Bootcamp combines live lectures, reading, small group sessions, feedback, and live simulations. We provide the knowledge, resources, and know-how to give you the confidence to freelance for yourself. Further, you’ll go through the Bootcamp with a small cohort of talented professionals, all with similar challenges and goals for their consulting businesses.
We record all of the live sessions, so if you do miss one, you’ll be able to catch-up, and you’ll have access to the content forever.
What can I expect as an outcome?
Customers leave the Bootcamp with all of the tools and confidence to close clients, and the majority of our customers close clients within a month of the Bootcamp.
Bootcamp participants leave with clarity regarding the value they bring, how to position themselves, and what they want from their independent businesses. Some actually choose to use the skills they learned about their niche and in negotiation to find a full-time job. That’s no problem! We’re supportive of whatever you decide is best for you. Further, our customers can use their freelance skill-sets whenever they choose, whether that’s immediately or months after the Bootcamp.
What are your past customers saying?
We have a lot of great quotes from them on our Success Stories
page! Some highlights include:
“Mylance has helped me build up my side income to $21,000 monthly, and more than doubled my income from my full time job. The best part - I work 20% of the hours.
” - Daniel C., Operations
"Two weeks after the Bootcamp I booked my second client! This one is for $5k/month at 10/hours per week. It’s been 2 months since I was let go and I'm making more than I was and working half the time. Thanks Mylance!
" - Jeremy S., SEO Specialist
Does Mylance guarantee success?
We offer a 100% satisfaction based, money-back guarantee. We know if you put in the work, you’ll be happy with the Bootcamp. If for any reason you’re not happy and we’re not able to make it right for you, we’ll refund you the cost of the Bootcamp.
What time investment is required during the two week Bootcamp?
Each weekday there will be a live session (lecture, group session, or simulation) that usually runs 60 minutes. Further, there are readings and assignments. The average commitment per day is 2-3 hours, and is meant to be done with flexibility around your schedule.
Do I need to be fully committed to freelancing to benefit from the Bootcamp?
Nope. Our customers split into two groups:
1. Those up-leveling their existing freelance business.
2. Those getting started and exploring freelancing
Either way, our goal is to help you get consistent, high-paying gigs, whether that’s immediately or when the time is right for you. You’ll always have the tools and the community at your disposal.
What happens after the Bootcamp?
You’re part of the Mylance community forever. We have community events, expert sessions, and a resource library of templates. We’re here to support you, and we’re not going anywhere. Further, Mylance community members bring back projects on a regular basis to the community, so it can be a lead generation source for you too.
How much will I make freelancing?
Those that have taken our Bootcamp 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 desired salary, 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.
Should I freelance before I join a company?
It completely 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.
