Well, freelancing seems like a great idea but...?

Would I be lonely? That’s not the case. You’re connecting with clients all over the world through Skype, email, instant messaging and more. Yes, you get the best of both worlds.

You can have the friendly contact of the clients when you choose and the individual quiet time to work alone when you need it. Plus, you can hook up with a wonderful global online community for advice or a friendly chat any time. And you get to spend more quality time with your family.

Is it hard to break into freelancing? Freelancing has never been easier. No longer are you restricted to a limited number of local clients; the global economy and the internet has created an ever-expanding client base and an almost infinite job market.

Four jobs are posted on job sites every minute of the day. That's a staggering 2,103,796 jobs a year. Over two million jobs - and rising by the hour.

Each job has a client desperate to solve their problem.

And you should be winning a slice of this work.

The jobs are out there, but you need to get the keys to success.

How do I know if I'll succeed? Some would-be freelancers have failed because they didn't know
- how to promote themselves
- where to find work
- how to price their work
- how to craft a winning proposal.

Don’t be among those who tried and failed. Instead, get the knowledge and personalised feedback you need from the experts at the Blackford Centre.

Our minds often miss the wonderful opportunities in front of us because we've become conditioned to a set way of thinking. You can take this opportunity to break out and enjoy a lifestyle you have dreamed of. The worse thing is not knowing whether you could have made it. You owe it to yourself to try

Now is the ideal time to join the online freelance revolution. With the knowledge gained through the Freelance Breakthrough programme, you will have access to the tools that the most successful freelancers have long jealously guarded.

What are the benefits of freelancing?

Freelancing gives you so much. Just look at this list:

  • Financial freedom
  • Independent and enviable lifestyle
  • Freedom to work to your timetable and to take time off when you need
  • Complete choice over what work you do
  • Freedom to showcase your creative talents to a global audience
  • Ability to connect and work with people all over the world.
