“The course breaks down literally everything you need to know, and it’s really easy to understand. I found the lesson on “The Differences Between Branding, Marketing & Advertising” the most   valuable because I often get those mixed up.”

The Money-Making Freelance Bundle includes everything you need to launch your freelance design business, sign your first clients, generate consistent income, and create the flexible lifestyle of your dreams.

Hey there!

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

I haven’t always had a successful 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 Money-Making Freelance Bundle is a step-by-step program that will teach you the exact methods to go from working for someone else to becoming the CEO of your own creative company!

At the beginning of my freelance career, my vision was simple:

I just wanted to create a profitable business and have amazing clients, consistent income, and the flexibility of being my own boss. I wanted to set my own hours and work from anywhere. I wanted to sleep soundly at night without panicking about money or client issues.

Does this sound like you too?
