Growth Strategy Session for Creative Freelancers

With Thomas Talavera

I'll personally review your work and recommend quick changes to help you attract better clients, increase your value and maximise your productivity.

If you answer yes to any of the following questions, I can help.

  • Do you feel that your clients undervalue your performance and see you as just a tool?
  • Do you spend too much time on administrative tasks?
  • Do you constantly fight with other freelancers for projects and have to lower your prices?
  • Do you feel like you’re always building someone else’s business instead of your own?
  • Do you feel like your finances are unpredictable?
  • Do you’ve problems getting your money?
  • Do you feel like you’re not building anything and will eventually burn out?

I only work with creatives

The truth is that freelancing is hard and presents several challenges

Problem #1: Fail to find a niche

Do you feel that it’s difficult to find a niche or a field of expertise because you simply cannot afford to say no to a client? This is a big problem because it means you’ve to start from scratch on every project and you cannot automate certain areas of your service or raise your prices.

Problem #2: Undervalued service

Billing properly is really hard. There are millions of freelancers and competition is extremely tough. How is it possible to survive when there are many people who want to do the work and they’re just a click away from anyone with an internet connection? This leads to compete for price (race to the bottom) as opposed to value. 

Problem #3: Panic over lack of work

We’ve all been here: there’s a dry spell and panic sets in. We worry: Where will my next paycheck come from? How will I get through the month? This panic leads to bad decisions that reinforce the vicious circle of bad clients and projects to get by.

Problem #4: Despise clients

Customers are the lifeline of a business, but they can also make your life hell. Do you ever feel that all your clients are against you? You know the kind: ungrateful, low-paying time-wasters who make your life miserable. It’s really hard to get out of this cycle when competition is high and there’s little time to align your business. 

Problem #5: Struggle to finish jobs

It’s hard enough to work without much accountability or a boss telling you what to do. Add bad clients and bad work to the mix and it gets that much harder. It takes an insane amount of self-discipline to finish a project when you don’t feel inspired.

Problem #6: Make uninspiring work

With all these problems, it’s hard to produce inspiring work that attracts better clients. Have you ever felt your clients destroy everything you’re working on? You then end up with results that aren’t really worth showing to potential clients.

Problem #7: Hassle to optimize

When you’re overworked and have little time for your own business, it’s almost impossible to optimise everything you do. Bad clients can rob you of every last drop of energy, leaving you with little strength to change your own business.

It’s easy to fall into a vicious cycle that makes your life a complete nightmare. I’ve met many freelancers that become very frustrated since none of the cogs of their machine work properly.

Thomas Call

I worked with hundreds of companies as a creative freelancer and experienced all of these problems.

That’s why I became obsessed with developing a system that takes care of every problem I was facing. All of this knowledge has helped me work on incredible projects that have made a massive financial impact in my life. These are real world lessons from real projects.

All this knowledge has helped me develop programs, courses and tools specifically designed for creative freelancers made by creative freelancers. This way you can create a fluid cycle where everything generates positive feedback and helps you overcome most of the challenges of this lifestyle. 



I'll guide you in the best direction to build a business that gets better clients consistently

Customers are the lifeline of your business. If you get the right clients, you're on the safe side. If you keep getting good clients and don't have to worry about revenue, you can do your best work.

You'll never look at freelancing through the same eyes again!

Freelancing has changed my life and offers me so many benefits, such as being able to set my own hours, work remotely, pursue my passions and choose clients that suit me.

But it took me years to get to this point. Freelance work can be a scary endeavour. It can feel like a treacherous journey, with late nights, unpaid bills and ungrateful clients.

This FREE training will help you look at your strategy in a whole new light so you can grow exponentially as a freelancer.
