The Truth Behind
What Makes a Freelancer Successful
And why it’s very possible to still launch (or substantially grow) your freelance business in 2012

“I’ll never be as good as <fill in your favorite copywriter here>.”

“I’m not good enough to charge THAT much money.”

“I’m going to tell potential clients that I’m just starting out, so they know what to expect.”

These are just some of the things I’ve heard from copywriters and freelancers over the last few months. And today I want to share with you some insights into what makes successful freelancers successful (the answer may surprise you), and what you can do this year to achieve your own success by the time the ball drops on December 31st.

  1. Thanks, Rebecca! I'm mobilizing for a great BootCamp this year (my first!). Intending to hit the ground running now that this is a full-time business for me. Great information in this video. I highly recommend it!

    Best regards-

  3. Very informative and encouraging but such a bad echo on the recording!It's really difficult to comprehend as the sound is so garbled.Thank you anyway, Rebecca.

  4. Great info, Rebecca. Thanks for sharing!

    This will be my FIRST Bootcamp! I'm really looking forward to making things happen. I'm focused on sharpening my copywriting skills before offering my services to Jobfair clients. Long term, I can't afford to prosper by living from project to project. So marketing myself will help to create a steady pipeline of work for me.

    Looking forward to our chat on Oct 15th. I signed up for Bootcamp before Aug 31st. Talk to you then! Michael Hicks "RNin2013"
