“I connected a lot with the lesson that talks about expanding your team. Before, I never felt prepared to outsource or delegate any tasks. But once I went over the lesson, the idea of finding help while I focused on my clients made so much sense!”

We created the Freelance Level Up Kit to give you the complete step-by-step system to generate profits and clients in your graphic design business!

Hey there!

Hi! My name is Kady, and I’ll be your teacher in this course.

We created the Freelance Level Up Kit to give you the complete step-by-step system to finally start making $10k months and get dream clients in your graphic design business!

Hi! My name is Kady, and I’ll be your teacher in this course.

I haven’t always had a profitable design business. When I started my freelance graphic design career, I still had a 9-5 job and didn’t know anything about online business.

I was working all the time, and I tried everything you can possibly imagine. I was constantly improving my design skills, posting on Instagram, trying Facebook ads, going to networking events… but nothing was working.

Today, my once-struggling freelance business is a successful design studio. Based on the knowledge I gained along the way, I developed a system to show you how to be successful as well. Everything I learned in those years is now a proven strategy that I’m sharing with you in just a few hours!

We want you to succeed!

We want you to
succeed!

Time is the most precious resource you have, and once you waste it, you can’t get it back. We will show you which strategies actually work and how to do them right the first time.

The Freelance Level Up Kit is a step-by-step program that will teach you the exact methods to go from chasing clients to having $12k and up clients come directly to you!

Once my freelance business got off the ground, I wanted more.

I wanted my business to grow. I wanted to have amazing clients, consistent income, and the flexibility of being my own boss. I wanted to hit six figures. I wanted to sleep soundly at night without panicking about money or client issues.

Does this sound like you too?

I ALMOST had a $10k month! The client paid two days later, so it wasn’t technically in one month, but it was still an amazing feeling to make that much money at once. Previously, I made around $3-4k per month, and through the course I increased my monthly income by an additional $2-3k monthly.”
