Ever wonder how superstar freelancers “make it” in their space?

Sure, you’re a freelancer too.

And talentwise…you’re a superstar too.

But for you, freelancing is a painful grind.

You wake up each morning with no idea if you’ll land a new client soon.

It’s a race to the bottom on platforms like Upwork, where you compete with people who ask for peanuts in pay but have high star ratings.

The clients you do find are few and far apart, and you’re working your heart out but not getting the pay you believe you deserve.

Deep inside you, you’re wondering, “Am I not cut out for this? Will I never have what it takes to become a “superstar freelancer,” like others in my space who seem to have gotten lucky?”

If this is you, you need my one-hour workshop, Freelancer Business Setup Training. In this workshop, I’ve invited freelance leader Elna Cain to share how she went from clueless blogger to superstar freelancer in only six months. (Elna earns $250+ to write a single blog.)

Should You Even Be Freelancing? (Hint: Exciting Stats Below)


I get it.

You’re exhausted.

You once thought the life of a freelancer was what you desired.

You know, getting up anytime you want. Working from anywhere in the world. Never changing out of your PJs.

Except, it’s not like that for you.

You get up super early just to check if your cold pitches have resulted in even one new gig.

You spend hours of your time on a project that pays $5. 

Your work late into the night, desperately wondering if you should have stayed at your nine to five. (At least work ended in those days.)

All this makes you think, “Should I just quit? Should I even be a freelancer? Do I not have what it takes to be like the successful freelancers in my space?”

If this is you, I’m here to tell you that you’re in the right place.

As freelancers, it’s only natural to go through this stage.

You know, the stage where you’re getting a few hard-earned but low-paying clients, and you have no idea where to go next.

The stage where you do have a tiny trickle of projects, but it’s a come and go thing – nothing steady.

If you’re here, congratulations!

You’ve made it this far, and all you need now is to learn what the next step forward is.

So, should you continue being a freelancer? Is there any promise for you in this kind of business?

Of course!

Check out these stats to inspire you:

  • Content marketing is now worth $400 billion, and experts predict it will be worth $600 billion in the next three years (which means if you offer content as a service, there are clients out there dying to meet and hire you).
  • The industry is packed with success stories of freelancers who followed the right steps and earned amazing success, such as Elna Cain, our guest teacher for this session, who earns $250 per blog. (And she’s a full-time and dedicated mom!)

So if you’re doubting and second guessing, wondering if freelancing is even worth it…

…it’s time to stop right now.

You are great.

Believe it.

Freelancing is the future.

All you need to do now is learn how to get from “starting out” to “success.”

How Not to Become Successful Freelancing (Stop Doing These Right Now)


Back in the day, there was a brand of freelancing everyone (including me) was jumping on.

And although things have changed massively by now, there’s still a ton of people making the same mistakes.

Here are two things you should stop doing right now.



1. Racing for the Lowest Bid on Upwork (Or Other Freelancing Platforms)

If this is you, I give you a high five.

At the very beginning, I too started here.

Scrambling to optimize my Upwork (then ODesk) profile. Going for clients who paid $5 per article. Working like crazy just to make enough money.If you’re a brand-new freelancer and you want to get ,

But remember this: Upwork is not where you’ll find success as a Freelancer.

Once you’ve done a few projects and gained a little experience, get out of it ASAP.



2. Going Back to College

If you’re wondering why you’re not succeeding as a freelancer, your mind might spin back to your formative years.

Did I do well in school?

Did I get the right education?

Should I go back to college and learn new skills?

My answer: don’t go back to college.

From the plethora of interviews I’ve done in my 10 years as an entrepreneur, I’ve come to this conclusion: college doesn’t have what it takes to teach you the skills to become a successful freelancer.

I know, it’s a lot to take in.

If only you knew what steps to take to get from lost and confused, to building a powerful legacy for yourself as a superstar freelancer. 

Freelancer Business Setup Training with Elna Cain: A One-Hour Workshop Teaching the Essentials of Setting Up a Thriving Freelance Career


Hi! I’m Julia McCoy, founder of Express Writers and Content Hacker.

I started as a freelancer, then took a totally different path and founded my own content agency.

And I know…not everyone wants to go down the path I did.

There are those of you who don’t want the stress of hiring and building a team.

You want to work by yourself, but still create amazing success and live the life of your dreams.

Now, that’s exactly why I invited Elna Cain to speak in this special one-hour workshop.

Elna started out in the freelance space earning nothing but a meagre $1.5 per article.

Today, she’s set up as a well-known solopreneur/freelancer offering top-notch services such as copywriting, blogging, digital marketing, branding, and more.

And nope, she’s no longer paid peanuts. In fact, she can command up to $250 per post.

In my one-hour workshop, Freelancer Business Setup Training, I interview Elna and get her to share her secrets on how she exploded her growth in only six months.

Here’s a sneak peek into the stuff she shares:

  • Three essential parts of the freelance business discovery process (do these before setting up your freelance business)
  • How to build an astounding portfolio and showcase your credibility and skills
  • How to expose yourself to top-notch potential clients
  • The secret behind getting a domain name that works (and what kind of domain names you should avoid)
  • The #1 thing to avoid if you don’t want to be seen as a “hobby freelancer”
  • The #1 asset to invest in to start attracting high-paying clients
  • How to stand out from freelancers who land nothing but low-paying gigs
  • How to earn a steady stream of clients (even if you don’t have time for cold pitching)
  • Tips on growing your credibility in the online space
  • How to branch out and start new services for different clients
  • How to get your dream clients for a brand-new service you’re offering
  • How to build a long-term client attraction magnet
  • How to scale and earn more without the stress of hiring people and building a team
  • And so much more

This workshop comes with a workbook, summaries, and guides aimed to take you straight to your goal with zero fluff and wasted time.

Plus, once you join, you can get personal feedback from me, Elna, and fellow students in an exclusive group you’ll have access to.

Freelance Business Setup Training is designed for freelancers who want to take their work to the next level and start building the legacy they’ve always dreamed of.

Do You Qualify to Be in the Freelance Business Setup Training Workshop?

Ok, hold up for one second.

This workshop isn’t for everybody.

So if you’re…

Not really into learning new skills

Happy with low-paying gigs on Afreelancing sites like Upwork

Not ready to put in the work to gain the success you dream of

…then this workshop isn’t for you.

BUT if you can say YES to five of the seven points below, this workshop was made for you.

  • You’re a talented freelancer, but you’re not getting the high-paying projects you deserve.
  • You want to set yourself up as a business, so clients trust you and work with you as a collaborator instead of an employee.
  • You have your own clients, but they’re few and far apart. (You want a system that pulls in a steady stream of them for you.) 
  • You don’t want to waste time reading a ton of books and blogs with contradicting information on how to become a successful freelancer.
  • You’re openminded and eager to learn new things.
  • You feel that investing is essential to growth (nope, you’re not one of those tight-fisted people who stay in a rut for years).
  • You have an hour of time to set aside to absorb my training.

From a Teacher with Twins to a Full-Time Living as a Stay-at-Home Freelancer Mom in Six Months  


Barely a year ago, Elna Cain was sitting on her couch after putting her 18-month-old twins down for the night. Her husband asked her a question she’ll never forget: “Do you use the Internet for anything else besides YouTube?” 

That’s when Elna’s brain begin to marinate on the internet as an opportunity, instead of a place where celebrities hung out (the purpose she originally thought Twitter was for). 

She was brand new to everything—including WordPress, LinkedIn, hosting, domains. And from the ground up, she replaced her full-time salary as a teacher with freelance blogging. And she went from earning a measly $1.50 a post to commanding up to $250 a post. 

Elna believes that freelance content is particularly amazing because you don’t need a lot of technical experience, design skills, coding skills or even a degree. (Very similar to the way I think!) 

All you need is a passion to learn. 

Be inspired with this powerful video training from Elna. I interview her in a special hour-long class how she’s built a full-time living as a freelance writer in six months from scratch. We’ve developed worksheets and summaries to go along with this powerful training, so you can implement everything you learn.
