Howdy, I'm Carrie Dils
I used to sit in traffic an hour and a half every day just for the privilege of going to a job I hated. I was making good money, but I was miserable and restless. My creativity was lost somewhere in that cube farm. I needed a change of pace and room to breathe. So I made an escape plan.
My way out was to dust off my web development skills and leverage that for side income. But the problem was that I knew nothing about running a business: how to handle taxes, find good clients, or even market myself. Hundreds of web projects later (and plenty of lessons learned the hard way), I know how to transition a side gig into a legitimate, profitable business.
Is it all rainbows and unicorns now? Not exactly, but I know a heck of a lot more about running a web business than I did 15 years ago when I finally left that cube. If you’re feeling stuck, you do have the power to break out and I can help. I don’t have any get rich quick schemes, but I can teach you how to run a sustainable, profitable freelance business doing the work you love.
The Fearless Freelancer® was created for those who want to earn a good living doing the work they love, independently.
You've got a skill, something you're really good at. Maybe it's designing websites. Maybe it's developing web apps. Maybe it's content creation or social media management. Whatever your skill is, you've discovered people are willing to pay you money in exchange for it.
That's powerful. And it empowers you to start your own business as a freelancer. It's an opportunity to work for yourself, on your own terms, with the freedom and flexibility to choose work you love.
But here's the catch: Running a business is hard. There are a lot of hats you'll have to wear that have absolutely nothing to do with your core skill. If you don't figure out how to effectively manage your business, you won't make it.
I've walked this path for 20 years, I know what it takes, and I want to share it with you. That's why I created The Fearless Freelancer®. It's a series of self-paced courses based on my experiences running a successful freelance business.
I can't help you get rich overnight or teach you how to automate your entire business from a beach in Tahiti. But what I can teach you are the business essentials you need to know to earn a good living doing the work you love.
