Suck-it-up and do it, WARRIOR


Do you consider yourself a freelancer? I never have. I’ve considered myself a small business owner, an entrepreneur, but never a freelancer. In fact, I’ll admit to thinking freelancer had a bit of a negative connotation for me. That it meant I would do anything for anyone;  that’s so not true if you want success. Today we have an expert about freelancing who will help us get clear on what it means to be a freelancer and how to prosper.

Matt Inglot’s expertise comes from running a web agency for the last ten years which he transformed from a traditional brick and mortar office and an 80 hour work week to significantly less work and far greater profitability. From that experience, Matt realized that most freelancers and consultants make life far harder for themselves than it needs to be.

In an effort to help others Matt created FreelanceTransformation where he helps fellow consultants and creative services providers earn more and build their consulting business around their lifestyle.
