Kickstart Your Freelance Business the Right Way (Live Virtual Classroom)

The job market is going through a major shakeup.

Hiring freelancers has become more attractive to businesses. There is a big possibility that jobs on temporary hold may be replaced by contractors and freelancers in the long-term.

Kickstart your Freelance Business the Right Way is designed for creatives who want to start a freelance business or looking to make a transition into freelancing but do not know where to begin.

The course is also relevant to anyone who wants to start a side business to earn extra income. The course will walk you through the important steps you need to take to start a service or product business with zero or small capital.

By the end of the course, you will be able to come up with an initial plan for your freelance business. All you need to do next is follow the roadmap you created, and you’re well on your way to starting a new venture.

There will be no business or technical jargons here! Just plain and straight to the point lectures, examples, and hands-on exercises to learn faster in a short period of time.

Put yourself in the best position to take on more freelancing projects in the future. Sign up to start your freelance business the right way. The course is limited to 12 per batch.
