Weekly Virtual Sessions

  • Once a week (for 8 weeks) we will host virtual group sessions with fellow creative freelancers from around the world.

  • Every session is 1 hour long and structured with specific topics or guest speakers (see below for topic schedule). 
  • We keep these group sizes small so your voice can be heard.

  • Every guest speaker has a direct interest, passion and value-add expertise for independent freelancers. 

Community & Collaboration

Week 2

Identifying your services. What do you have to offer? We'll explore some additional personalized monetization strategies.

Jess, Graphic Designer


WORRIED YOU MIGHT CHANGE YOUR MIND?

We've worked closely with and chatted to a lot of freelancers in the industry. Sometimes, they might say "working online isn't right for me." Fair enough, I get it. I love face-to-face interactions as well and someday we hope to expand the program enough to offer in person meet ups. Until then, we want to offer something that can reach our global network of freelance workers in the creative services industry. 

"But, what can you really help me with?!"  I get it! I turn to YOU for help in executing my clients' creative work. However, it was a huge misconception for me to assume that because these experts I was working so closely with knew how to design, they fully understood the strategy behind branding. Or business operations. Or pricing. We have a unique operational and business background that will take transform your services into a micro-business.

If all else fails, we still got you covered. If you cancel by January 5, 2017 we will give you a full refund. 


IS THIS MEMBERSHIP PROGRAM REALLY RIGHT FOR ME?

  • Are you currently doing freelance work? (even if it's not full time)
  • Are you motivated? 
  • Are you in the creative services or marketing industry? 

Then, this program is RIGHT for you. This program is ideal for motivated independent freelancers in the marketing/ creative services industry who are ready to make contract work their full-time gig. You don't need to be a designer either, you can be a project manager, strategist or any other specialist who has a service to offer the marketing industry. 


At the completion of our 8-week program, you will walk away with:

 

    • A better understanding of how to automate business processes so that you can focus on what you do best - CREATE! 
    • A stronger BRAND and portfolio of work showcasing exactly what clients are looking for
    • How to better approach pricing your services so you earn even more and avoid bidding wars 
    • A network of motivated creative peers from around the world that you can continue to collaborate with (FOR LIFE!)

    ARE YOU LEGIT? 

    Good question. Yes, well at least I hope I am! I've helped a lot of clients build their brands and improve their operational processes. Leveraging those same principles, I've applied the key learnings to help YOU improve your own micro-business personal brand.

    In addition to helping lots of small business clients with Dalziel & Company, I also have over 10 years of experience in various roles at advertising and marketing agencies serving global brands. I also recently earned my MBA from Trinity College in Dublin. Feel free to check out my LinkedIn profile too.

    All in all, a study predicts that by 2020 an estimated 40% of the US workforce will be comprised of the 'gig' economy. This means competition is about to get REAL and I'm here to help you rise above bidding wars, maintain integrity and quality of your work and create an operational process that streamlines all of the stuff that takes you away from doing what you do best!
