Freelancing Freedom Essentials Edition An online course for Web Developers who desire to start freelancing and book their first client in 5-weeks (or less)


Are you ready to win back your Freedom with Freelancing? The Exact Steps to Make It As a Freelance Web Developer and Launch a Business on the Side in 5-weeks (or less).

You already know that a freelancing business can give you the life you want. The freedom you need. Whether that means leaving your 9-5 job, providing a better life for your family, or giving you the opportunity to go on adventures whenever you want.

But, you’re probably stuck at the very beginning. Where do you start? What do you do? You might be spinning your wheels in frustration, feeling like you’re getting nowhere.

Here’s the thing. While every freelancer does things a little bit different, there are certain steps each one has taken to find success. Certain things that they do that help launch a successful freelance business, one that lets them quit their job, feed their family, and live a better life.

But first…


Your Instructor


Brad Hussey
Brad Hussey

My Name’s Brad. In 2012, I abandoned a $40,000 per year dream job to do something absolutely stupid.

Maybe you might think $40k isn’t all that much…

It is when it’s your only source of income, your wife is pregnant, and you move to a small city to start a brand new freelance business (against the strong advice of close family members).

I was trapped in a job that should have been my ‘dream job’. Except, I couldn’t stand it. I spent most of my time either at work, commuting to work, or stressing about work. Almost all of my time was spent away from the love of my life, my wife Laura, and I couldn’t stand it. In fact, my boss once joked to my wife, “I spend more waking hours with your husband than you do!”

(I did the math. He was right.)

What was the point of having a ‘dream job’ if I couldn’t spend my life with the person who was most important to me?

So, a few months before I planned to quit, I doubled down on freelancing on the side. I spent every spare moment that I wasn’t at work or with my wife on building my side-business. And the moment I could, I quit. No, I officially retired from traditional employment.

And everything I’ve learned, from all the successes I had and all the mistakes I made, I’m going to teach to you. Because it took me years to get my freelancing business off the ground and stabilized, but it shouldn’t have. Not if I had the roadmap I’m giving you. If I were to start all over again from scratch… This is how I would do it.

What is Freelancing Freedom: Essentials Edition? The Stuff That Matters (and the stuff that doesn't)

A lot of courses you’ll come across will promise to tell you every last thing the teacher knows. I’m not going to do that.

Instead, you’re going to get the bare essentials you need to develop a freelancing business in as little time as possible. That way you can start earning money without going into information overload.

Freelancing Freedom: Essentials Edition gives you:

  • The step by step guide to building a freelance business, from deciding what skills you need to earning your first client.
  • Video, text, and audio versions of each module so you can learn in whatever way is best for YOU.
  • Absolutely no fluff. Everything in the course is actionable content that you can put to immediate use.

The course occurs over a five week period, with one module per week. At the end of each lesson, you’ll receive action items for you to perform over next few days. By the time you start your next lesson, you’ll have made visible progress towards launching your freelancing lifestyle.

Student Testimonial Jamie earned $10,000 with 5 clients

"I am a professional online student. I have taken dozens of courses and I can confidently say that Brad Hussey is the best instructor I've ever learned from — online or in person, whether it be coding courses or freelancing skill development — I actually learn and absorb the information when he is teaching.

This course has enabled me to kickstart my freelance career. [Brad’s] clarity, vision, wit, humor, attention to detail and high-level vision all contribute to what makes this course so successful.

I would suggest it to anyone trying to go out on their own. Better to travel with a roadmap then to wander around in circles, right?"

- Jamie O., Freelance Web Developer, Los Angeles

Who is this course for? A specific course for a specific person

I built Freelancing Freedom: Essentials Edition for those individuals who either have not started their freelancing journey or who are struggling to earn any significant income.

This course is great for:

  • Individuals who want to start up a low-risk side business as a freelancer, but have no idea where to start on their journey.
  • Freelancers who just can’t seem to break that $1,000 a month barrier, no matter how much time they put in.
  • People who have been overwhelmed by all of the contradicting information online, and just want the essentials that can get them started so they can book that coveted first paying client.

This course is for you if you are ready to start freelancing, but you just don’t know what steps to take, in what order. You would love to earn some extra income on the side to make life a little bit easier for you and your family. Maybe you desire to replace your full-time income so you could make a safe exit from your day job. Perhaps you even want to replace your spouse’s income, so they could leave their job, and help you with your business, pursue their own passions, or even with the kids at home. You want to free yourself from monotony, a drudge-filled 9-5 with long commutes.

You want freedom.

Student Testimonial Terry is a new dad who needed a "kick up the arse" to start his business...

"The course is goal orientated - it's full of actionable tasks and it's the combination of having your hand held while also getting a bit of a kick up the butt that really helped. Because the course ran in waves you also go through with a bunch of like minded people with whom you can bounce ideas. They're one of the friendliest bunches of people you could meet."

- Terry Gooding, Freelance Web Developer, Norwich, UK

Who it is NOT for This course is not for everyone...

In fact, it’s not for most people. Because while freelancing is enormously rewarding, it can also be extremely difficult. So, before you go any further, I advise you to ensure if you fit the following criteria.

This course is not for you if you are:

  • Already earning a full-time income freelancing (Congratulations! Reach out and tell me your story. I’d love to hear from you).
  • Expecting to go from broke to a six-figure income in less than a month (that’s just not realistic — no matter how fancy the car, or how big the library of books in the background of the video).
  • Not ready to commit time or energy learning these essentials (Freelancing takes work, there are easier ways to make money).

But, if you’re committed to taking action and are willing to learn, then this course may be exactly what you need.

Module Breakdown Here's what you will learn over the next 5-weeks

WEEK #1 Master Your Mindset

Before you start, you have to change the way you approach the world. This module will flip the way you see the world upside down (or perhaps, right-side up), teach you how to think differently than most people and to prime yourself for success, both in freelancing and in life.

WEEK #2 Workshop Your Niche

While generalist freelancers exist, it’s better to niche down 99% of the time. It means easier work and more money. In this module you’ll learn how to find a realistic, and profitable niche that’s tailor made for your strengths and personality.

WEEK #3 Skills You Need To Succeed

Confused about what skills you need to start? Think you have to be an expert in every field? Think again. This module will illustrate the exact skills you need for your business and which ones you must avoid.

WEEK #4 Craft An Irresistible Offer

A good offer is the key to success. It’s what separates freelancers with all the work they need from those barely making ends meet. Here you’ll learn what steps to take to craft an irresistible offer that books you high-paying clients time and time again.

WEEK #5 Launching Your Freelance Business & Marketing Your Offer

Launching your freelance business is the moment of truth, and it can be a stressful and bumpy road. But does it really have to be so scary? Within this module, you’ll learn how to make your launch a painless, stress-free — and dare I say, exciting — experience.

Student Testimonial Gina earned $1,100 on the side

"I had absolutely no idea how to start, how to get clients, or how to handle them once I had them. Freelancing was much more of a dream than a reality.

My biggest success was definitely my first paid client. It gave me the confidence that I was making the right decision and a nice boost in income for the month.

- Gina R., Freelance Web Developer, Erie, Pennsylvania, USA

I’m already a student of the original “Freelancing Freedom Course”, what about me?
First of all, thank you for being one of the original students of The Freelancing Freedom Course! The original Freelancing Freedom Course is in the process of being rebranded as “Freelancing Freedom Masterclass” and the content is being reviewed for improvement based on your feedback. But don’t worry — you get these improvements for free, and you will automatically become a student of Freelancing Freedom Masterclass. This new course, Freelancing Freedom: Essentials Edition, was created because many of my students are not yet ready to take the big leap (and big investment) into the flagship course, but they still wanted to learn the very basics of getting started as a freelancer. Think of this new course as the baby step into the larger, more in-depth Masterclass (of which you are already a student of). That being said, you are more than welcome to join Freelancing Freedom: Essentials Edition! You might learn a few things by revisiting the essentials of getting started!
Whoa, My Question Wasn’t On Here!
