Bradley worked in Operations at Uber from 2014-2018 across Rides, Eats, and Freight.
October 2018, Bradley left Uber. He was tired of building businesses for someone else, and he felt like he had reached his ceiling.
He found his first part-time consulting client and was blown away: "They paid me $250 / hr for 25 hours per week! I was all of a sudden making $25k per month working part-time"
"I started to get good at this consulting thing. I had too many clients and started to help friends launch their consulting businesses."
"I realized how big this market was, and the potential for the individual. Further, the lack of infrastructure for the business of one was too much to pass up"
Bradley founded Mylance to help individuals support a flexible work-life, built on intention and fulfillment.
We've already helped thousands of freelance consultants work less and earn more by working for themselves.
"I went from working in tech for Uber to freelance consulting full time, which wasn't an easy journey for me. It took me over 9 months to hone my niche, understand how to differentiate myself, put together contracts and proposals, and - most importantly - find quality leads.
After the trial and error, I was able to bring in over $25,000 / month, and eventually started Mylance to share these learnings, and enable entrepreneurial, passionate individuals like you to work for yourself, and live a flexible, fulfilling work-life."
When I left Uber, I wondered if I could work part-time, helping start-ups with their marketplaces. So, I gave it a shot. I asked a few start-ups if I could help them part-time with their marketplaces. Most said no. One said yes. I didn't know how much to charge, and asked for $287/hr based on a random calculation I did. They agreed to $250/hr. I was shocked. I ended up working 25 hours per week, making over $25,000 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 consulting 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 success, if not more so! It was incredibly fulfilling to help others live this life I'd experienced. I saw friends close the gender pay gap, spend more time with their families, start side-businesses, or just enjoy some more free time.
As Mylance evolved, we learned we could help individuals in more ways. We could take their books off their hands, help them with company formation set-up, and calculate their estimated taxes. Further, we could help them find leads both through our community, but also by helping them position themselves professionally online. We’ve now helped thousands of talented professionals launch and grow successful consulting businesses, often replacing their previous income and then some, in a fraction of the number of hours! This is what Mylance is all about: helping you manage your work life with intention, and making room for the other amazing things in life.
