How To Stop Thinking Like An Employee & Build a Freelance Business Like a Boss
A step-by-step digital guide to creating a profitable freelance or consulting business, so you can kiss that corporate career goodbye for good (without losing your lifestyle).
Hi, I’m Kate Bagoy.
It took me 8 years, 3 attempts and more than $70,000 to learn how to build a six-figure freelance business. But the 4th time I started freelancing, I landed my first $20,000 contract within a matter of weeks – and never looked back.
So what did I do differently?
I figured out that I needed to stop acting like I was embarking on an extended job hunt and start acting like a business owner.
This book and the worksheets will give you all the pieces you need to build a profitable freelance business & brand.
But ONLY if you first starting thinking of yourself as, and acting like, a business owner.
