    So you'd like to go freelance? Nice. Starting your freelance business is a great way to build something that carries your mark, allows you to do the work you love doing and make you truly independent. However, the process for getting started can feel daunting—what setup do you need to go solo? How do you stand out in the crowd? How do you build a solid portfolio that helps you land dream assignments? And even after your business goes live, how do you manage assignments, price your work, get paid and create a sustainable freelance workflow that doesn’t burn you out?




    Leap Now is going to help you make it happen—to not only learn how to properly plan and launch your freelance business, but make sure it thrives, too.


    I’m Martina Flor, I run a studio in lettering and custom type in Berlin and I’m my own boss.


    I’ve been freelancing since 2010 and have created art for hundreds of clients around the world. I’ve also launched a line of products, earned prizes, published books and started an online academy (this one). I currently generate a full-time income exclusively by doing things I enjoy. 


    While running my freelance business (with successes and failures), and helping others launch their freelance career, I’ve learned a lot about what works and what doesn’t. Having been my own boss for the past ten years, I’ve come to realise that thriving in your art is just as important as succeeding in your business, and that both are possible.


    Starting your own freelance business can transform not only the work you do but also, the way you shape your life.


    LAUNCH YOUR FREELANCE BUSINESS


    Across the course of 8 weeks, you’ll setup the basis for your freelance business, launch it and learn how to maintain a successful practice. This is what the course is about in a nutshell:


    WEEK 1–4

    Setting up all the necessary things to get your business up and running.

    WEEK 5

    Launching your practice and announcing to the world you’re there. Exciting!

    WEEK 6–8

    Learning how to lead your business in a professional and sustainable manner.
