Course FAQs

Why might I want to try freelancing?

Freelancing gives you incredible freedom in your work life. Further, you realize your true value. Instead of helping one company, you get to work across companies, charging what the market will bear for your skills. This life isn’t for everyone, but if you’re willing to learn, it can be an incredible experience.

Does this course include everything I need?

Yes. We cover everything from ideation and discovering your niche, to closing your first client, and expanding your business. Further, our expert coaches, and larger freelancer community are here to answer any questions you have along the way.

What other costs might I incur as a freelancer?

As much as we love being on our own, freelancing does have some additional costs. The biggest one is your own health insurance, and you likely will have others such as forming an LLC, keeping track of your books, and having an additional tax return. You’ll likely make more than enough to cover all of this, and still make more than a salary you’d get at an employer. Further, Mylance walks you through all of this to ensure you set things up correctly. 

How much will I make freelancing?

Those that have followed the steps in this course have made more money than when they were employed, including the additional costs of being a freelancer (healthcare, bookkeeping, etc.), in fewer hours. If you can picture a role you’d want to have based on your skillset and what that salary would be, you can expect to make the same or more as a freelancer (if done correctly). Yes, you can also get equity as a freelancer if you’re targeting start-ups.

What else should I know about freelancing?

Freelancing means there’s very little oversight or structure in your life. You’re in charge, meaning you need to be self-motivated. Further, you need to be able to ask for projects and negotiate well. We have a great way to “sell” without mastering traditional sales techniques, but you’ll still need to know your worth, stand up to clients, and be your own advocate. We believe anyone can learn this, but it takes some work and confidence!

Should I freelance before I join a company?

It completely depends on the company, but we generally think it’s a good idea, especially if you’re looking at a start-up. You never know what a start-up is like until you’re there, and this way you get to know the leadership, your manager, and the team before you make a bigger commitment. Joining a company is a huge decision, and this allows both sides a trial beforehand. Further, if it is a good match, you’ll likely get a way better offer once they see what you’re capable of. 

Does this course work?

Yes, it does. If you follow the steps, and listen to our guidance this course works. It has for countless folks before you, and it can work for you as well. For whatever reason if you’re not satisfied with the content or your experience, please reach out to us at [email protected], and we’ll make it right.
