“I spend more waking hours with your husband than you.”


— what my boss said to my wife

Brad Hussey with a moustache

That’s when it clicked for me.

During a cocktail party in 2011, when my boss was trying to convince my wife that I should grow a big, dirty moustache for "Movember."

In fact, my boss did spend more waking hours with me than my wife did (I did the math).

When did I consent to give my boss more of my life than the one person I loved most?

Was it when he offered to pay me a fair salary?

Even if I were to be paid double (which never would have happened, btw), would it still have been worth it to give most of my life to my boss and his business?

In the hopes that, one day, I’d have more time to spend with my family?

I knew something had to change.

In the meantime I'd been freelancing on the side, and I danced with the idea of quitting my job to work full-time as a freelancer.

“But what if it doesn’t work?”

I knew that quitting my job to start my own business was risky.

But it was a risk worth taking, even if it resulted in failure and having to find another day job.

I would feel good knowing that I tried.

“But what if it does work?”, I thought to myself.

The possibility of success, and everything it stood for, ignited a fire underneath my rear.

One year later, I quit my job.

I did so on good terms, and with enough client work to sustain my wife and I for a few months, until I figured out how to create a consistent income as a freelance web designer.

Working in Hawaii, having a beer

The freedom I experienced in my 1st year as a full-time freelancer was incredible.

It was the simple stuff, like:

  • No longer waking to an alarm clock
  • Working from my home office
  • Setting my own work schedule
  • Taking extended lunch breaks with my wife

And it was the big stuff, like:

  • Taking my family to Hawaii, and working from the lanai overlooking the emerald ocean
  • Not having to risk my life in rush hour traffic every morning
  • Helping raise my baby with my wife
  • Hitting my first 5-figure income month through my own efforts & hard work

I was overjoyed, earning an income doing work I loved, and experiencing freedom unlike I’d ever dreamed of before.

Chart displaying $708

The $708 wake up call

Then, after months of enjoying steady client work and word-of-mouth referrals, I hit a dry spell. Just months after my wife gave birth to our first child, my total monthly income plummeted to $708.

Barely enough to cover rent, let alone provide for a growing family.

It didn’t take long for me to realize that part of the “deal” of being in business for yourself as a freelancer is the inconsistent income.

Also known as “Feast or Famine”.

#rookiemistake

It seemed I was left with two options:

  1. Surrender my family’s financial stability in order to selfishly pursue a business that’s proven to be unstable.
  2. Or, surrender my freedom and flexibility for the drudgery I thought I’d put behind me forever.

Instead, I created a third option:

Double down on my business, and find the formula for income stability (preferably 6-figure income stability.)

So, I got to work on hunting down that formula.

Stressed freelancer, trying to find work

Does this sound like you?

In the hunt for new clients and the formula for 6-figure freelancing, I tried all of the tricks in the book.

👎 Comb through job boards & bid for cheap gigs on freelancer marketplaces

  • The job boards are always looking for over qualified people with years of experience
  • The marketplace gigs are highly competitive, and never pay well
  • A great way to waste hours of time

👎 Post on social media in the hopes that your friends will hire you

  • Soon you realize that there are only so many times your friends will put up with that before ignoring you completely

👎 Lower your rate to attract more clients

  • This only attracts bad clients who are difficult to work with
  • And now you need to work with twice as many clients in order to hit your income goals

👎 Start blogging & wait for traffic

  • Did you get into this to be another starving blogger, or to make a good living as a business owner?

👎 Buy some ads

  • Where should I buy ads?
  • Who do I market to?
  • What should it say?
  • I can find better ways to burn $100 per day.
  • Seems like a good way to fail horribly, really fast.

👎 Start cold calling

  • Honestly, there has to be a better use of my time that doesn’t involve seeking rejection on purpose.

👎 Hope & pray for referrals

  • Listen, I'm a praying man, but God isn't your virtual assistant.

👎 Hand out business cards

  • I've spent hundreds of dollars on all different types of business cards, and thousands of dollars on conference tickets in order to exchange cards after having a dead-end conversations
  • And I've seen exactly zero return on that investment.

After exhausting all of my efforts for drumming up consistent business, I thought, "there has to be an alternative to hunting for work."

And that's when I found it, the alternative way, the "formula".

Brad & family biking together

Compare that to today.

In the past, I would hope for clients, chase down leads, and undercharge my services because I was afraid to lose a potential client.

Not anymore! My business has been providing for my family for nearly 10 years now, and I can tell you it’s definitely NOT because of the old approach I used to use above.

Now, I no longer chase clients down because I need their money.

Instead, clients seek me out because they need what I have to offer.

Which means I get to choose who to work with.

Then the demand increases.

As does the income (the 6-figure income, I will add).

It’s a much less stressful way to build my freelancing business.

But you know what’s way more exciting to me?

Life looks more like this now:

  • I take Friday afternoons off (to spend time with my wife & kids)
  • I don’t fret over surprise expenses (like vehicle maintenance, a costly bill, or ordering Skip the Dishes a couple of times a week)
  • I see money as a renewable and plentiful resource (rather than a scarce commodity that is hard to come by)
  • I stop worrying about where my next client is coming from when I close my home office door for the evening

Best of all, I've built a business that supports my desired lifestyle (which for me, is 100% family-oriented).

You can build a sustainable, growing —even 6-figure—business as a freelancer, too!

And you can do it without having to:

  • Chase down leads (what if they came to you instead?)
  • Bid for cheap marketplace gigs (what if you only worked with clients with a specific budget?)
  • Work with every client who comes your way (what if you could turn most away?)
  • Undercharge your services (what if your rates were triple what they are now?)

How would that change your outlook on your business, your life, your freedom?

Family on a hike

How do you achieve a life of freedom and build a “completely booked”, business as a freelancer or service professional?

Imagine you invited your family on a hike in the Rocky Mountains. The landscape is beautiful and inspiring, but you're also aware that there is risk involved.

With its rugged terrain and dangerous wildlife lurking in the shadows, it's your job to make calculated decisions that will end with a beautiful family portrait of your big achievement.

Do you:

  1. Lead your family into dangerous backcountry, without a map, proper gear and against the advice of an experienced trail guide?
  2. Or, follow an established trail which leads you exactly where you plan to go, aware of potential risks, and with the proper gear?

I think you know the answer!

I’ve been building my business for nearly 10 years and have sold more than a million dollars of products & services to customers in nearly every country of the world.

That’s a decade of hard work, experience, and experimentation. I've already charted a path through the backcountry, so to speak.

You’re more than welcome to try this approach, but it’s hard, and certainly not the path I’d take if I started again from scratch.

The absolute, best way for new freelancers to succeed?

Learn from somebody who has done it successfully.

And that’s exactly what I’m offering to you in my signature course & coaching program for freelancers & service professionals.

Media appearances by Brad Hussey

This isn’t your typical online course.

Most online courses:

  • Regurgitate info from the real experts.
  • Throw in a Facebook group because Lord knows we all need more Facebook in our lives.
  • The course creator doesn't show up and doesn't care about your success in the program.
  • Slap on a $1997 price tag to make you think you're spending less than you really are.

And Bob’s your uncle.

My course? You won’t get this anywhere else.

Why? It is my personal decade-long experience:

  • As a professional freelancer & 6-figure business owner
  • Earning an income that I would never get from a job
  • Selling more than a million dollars in services, products & programs to customers in nearly every country of the world
  • Collecting huge wins and messy failures
  • Working from home, as a busy father & husband with a tiny virtual team
  • Spending no more than 30 hours per week on my business, and taking Friday afternoons off

Distilled into a playbook that you — yes, YOU — can follow, right from where you are sitting at this very moment.

So you can learn from my best, most successful business strategies (and avoid the biggest pitfalls every freelancer makes), apply it to your business, accelerate your progress, and start experiencing big results (in a shorter period of time).

This course includes 12 modules, an exclusive, invite-only mastermind community full of passionate entrepreneurs, and weekly coaching sessions and workshops with me and our students.

You don’t have to settle for being easily categorized, sorted and ignored.

And you don’t have to settle for being the lowest bidder.

In fact, every successful freelancer has figured out how to make a living (and a difference) by following a simple but difficult principle: get better clients."

Student Testimonial

Aleia landed 14+ clients and reached her six-figure income goal

"Within 2-weeks of joining, I landed 14 clients and I'm excited to say I've since hit my goal of making an annual income of six-figures!

The Freelancing Freedom program is literally the blueprint if you want to start, maintain, and elevate your business. Brad is an amazing teacher who brings humanity back to entrepreneurship.

His dedication to his students success is something I unfortunately have not encountered in many other programs, however he definitely puts effort to not only lead with his program but to lead by example as well.

If you have been contemplating starting your entrepreneurial journey I encourage you to trust the process and join the Freelancing Freedom program. There’s no better choice to go from employee to empire!"

— Aleia Larkins, founder of Gridaverse Creative Group

Student Testimonial

"Since joining, I am getting consistent work, have direction and I'm on track to make this my full-time gig in less than a year."

"I've really loved working with both Brad, his team, and everyone in the community because anytime I have a question I know there's someone there with more experience than me and they have an answer to my question.

I am getting more consistent work, I have direction, and I am on track to quit my side hustle, and make this my full-time gig with within less than a year.

So, I'm really excited!

If you're someone who wants some direction and want to work with an honest guy, I definitely recommend Brad, this program and hope to see you in the community!"

— Darren Alderman, No-Code Consultant at AmbleMind

 
Student Testimonial

"Brad honestly takes such an interest in the success of his students."

"I’m not the only one for whom this past year’s been uncertain, but I’m afraid to say I let it get to me. When we went into lockdown… I lost my mojo. 

I lost hope. I stopped putting the work in, and I quit making progress in my business. Overall, I was in this slump for nearly three months. Though it didn’t take even a month for Brad to notice my dropped participation in the mastermind. When he noticed, he reached out to me personally to ask what was up and help me get back on track.

I’m telling you this because even with that three month slump, I’ve still done better (in terms of finances, and lifestyle) than my previous year with my full-time job at a marketing agency. Now, I’m back on track and doing better than ever. I can’t wait to see what next year brings.

You have to put the work in, but if you show up with curiosity and drive, Brad will help set you up for success."

— Matthew Pierce, Dev for Designers

Frequently Asked Questions

Or book a quick call

Will this course work for me if I don’t have any business experience, and lack confidence & time?

I engineered the Launch Course with the beginner in mind. Our approach is to build you and your business from the ground up, leaving no stone unturned. If you have the desire & drive to start a business, but you don’t know where to start, your confidence level is low, and you’re short on time — you’re in the right place!

Modules 1 - 3 are designed to hold your hand through the process of “starting from scratch,” and you’ll begin to notice an increase in confidence as you start to see results in your efforts.

As for lack of time? That’s the #1 objection we hear from everyone. We teach you how to employ a technique we call the “Performance Audit” in which you’ll re-order your schedule to prioritize your success, and we’ll show you how to create “Success Systems” that create a “no-fail” environment to grow your business — even if you only have a couple of hours per week to spare.

Outside of that, if you still you believe you don’t have time to commit to changing your life — your priorities are not aligned with ours, and you may not be a good fit for the course (or entrepreneurship, for that matter).


Who is this course for?

This course is for anyone who wants to start a business from scratch, based on their passions and talents. It teaches you how to build a service-based freelance business around your specific craft — whether you’re a creator, a coach, a coder, or a human resources consultant. Our students run service-based businesses as copywriters, bloggers, web developers, designers, filmmakers, marketers, HR consultants, coaches and more!


How long do I have access to the course?

How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.


Is this a coding course for web developers?

No, there will be zero coding in this course. This is not a web development course.


What if I have no clients or experience?

Whether you have experience as a freelancer, or you have absolutely no experience at all — the way I designed this course will ensure you see results in YOUR specific freelance business.


How much time do I need to dedicate to this course to see results?

I recommend you dedicate at least 3 - 5 hours per week. This includes watching the course content, filling out workbooks, and most importantly, applying what you've learned in your actual freelance business — that means, getting yourself out there, sending the emails, calling your leads, and doing the work.

However, if you're so busy that you can only dedicate a minimal amount of time to the course, that's okay. You'll have lifetime access to the course, and even if you can't spend time each week on a module, you'll be able to come back to it when you have time. It's up to you, really.


Do I get access to all of the videos and lessons at once?

The course is designed to keep up with your preferred learning pace, and every time you complete a lesson a new one is unlocked. Whether you binge a few lessons at once, or you wish to take your time, you get to decide.


How long do I get access to the private community?

Upon joining, you will be granted a free access to our Private Community for 1-year on MightyNetworks. Afterwards, the membership fee is just $99 per year to stay within the community. This helps us protect the integrity of the community and those who are committed to growth in their business.


Will I get access to updated content and material?

Absolutely! You will get access to anything and everything that is added to the course over time. Your feedback throughout the course, your questions, your attendance in the live Q&A sessions will help shape future material, and you'll always get access to the new material within the course.


Will this course be offered anywhere else?

No. This course is only offered at FreelancingFreedom.com. I'm doing this to protect my students, the integrity of the course, and to ensure that the only students who take this course are serious about success as a freelancer.


I can't afford the course, but I'm confident it will help me improve my situation. Do you offer scholarships?

First of all, if you are in a financial situation that prohibits you from investing in this program, I strongly encourage you to enjoy my free webinars, live coaching on YouTube, and Blog content to help you get yourself back on your feet. However, if you can afford a Netflix subscription, a data package on your smartphone, and the pleasure of eating out once in awhile — you can afford the Launch course.

That said, if you see this course and trying to improve your future as an “expense,” I encourage you to challenge that belief!

This course is meant to serve as an investment in your life, your business and your future. I’m giving you the system that I use to provide for my family, generate a healthy income and work from home doing work I love.

We also offer an affordable payment plan spread over 12-months so you can fit the investment into your monthly budget. We receive countless requests from people wishing to join our courses for free. Unfortunately, most of these requests are from people who will never put the content to use — tire kickers, pirates, or those looking for a free lunch. That said, we are a caring and compassionate team and we understand that you may be in a unique situation where you are confident the course will help you but the enrolment fee is just not realistic for you at this time. We offer compassion pricing on a case by case basis, and one free scholarship per month by application. Click here to apply.


What if I'm unhappy, can I get a refund?

We are confident that this course will be worth every penny of your investment. If you purchase this course and you change your mind within the first 30 days, you can return it for a complete refund. Easy peazy, lemon squeezy.

Even if you didn’t touch the first lesson. Or if you don’t like the sound of my voice. Or if your wife feels like you’re hanging out with me more than you do with her (seriously, I’ve got that one before, too).

Just email us at [email protected] us know and we’ll return your money.

Beyond the 30 days, if you feel the course wasn’t worth the price you paid, let us know. We’ll ask you a few questions, and you’ll show us you’ve made a real, honest effort to put the material into action. If we can’t help you, and you’re still not satisfied, we’ll return your money.


Do you offer a payment plan?

Yes, 12 payments of $100. Click here to enroll with this option.


What if I already have a business and I’m looking to grow? Is this only for beginners?

The Launch Course is a scalable system that works for beginners and experienced consultants alike. The Launch course is the exact system I use in my business to generate annual revenues of 6-figures and beyond. If you already have an established side-hustle and you’re looking to take your operation full-time, Launch will possibly be the best investment you’ll make in that transition.

If you’re already full-time and looking to scale your consulting business, we offer a private coaching program to help you scale your business using our methods. Click here to book a call.

Yes, you do have other options.

You could spend countless hours, weeks, months — even years — reading endless blog posts, watching boring videos, and skimming book after book trying to figure out how and when to start your dream business...

Or you can join me — and 450+ other dedicated freelancers and service professionals in the course — and we'll show you exactly what to do, how to do it and when to do it.

When you join us, you get:

  • The course (12 modules of practical business training for freelancers)
  • The workbooks (Apply everything you learn)
  • The mastermind (Access to a valuable network, collaborators, accountability partners)
  • The group coaching (Live calls with Brad and the community, to help you make weekly progress)
  • The workshops (Learn the latest marketing & sales strategies for your business)

All for an easy flat fee which you’ll earn back with your first paid client (and we’re in the business of getting you many clients… not just one).

So, are you ready to finally build your business with me and my community by your side, so you can experience the freedom you truly deserve?
