How To Build a Thriving Freelance, Coaching, or Consulting Business Around YOUR Personality

Introducing The Free Freelancer 2.0

This coaching program will help you create the foundation of knowledge, skills, and marketing assets to build a highly paid, location independent freelance or coaching business.

Why This Is Different

The Most Community, Accountability, and One-on-One Support Out There

I designed this program to help you see some immediate results (good for your motivation) AND be ready for long term growth.

 

Because almost everything happens live and within a group of peers you'll take action and make more progress than ever. 


You are going to be growing in 3 ways:

Knowledge

Skills

Marketing Assets

You need all 3.


If you only build your knowledge you'll be like so many people that waste money on video courses and never get results.


Knowledge DOES NOT equal results.


You must also build some critical skills. After teaching business and marketing for over a decade (I'm older than I look!), I've concluded that marketing is the #1 skill we should focus on.


If you're reading this, you are likely an NF personality type which tells me you're likely to spend plenty of time on delivering your service and caring about your clients...it's the marketing you'll naturally put off or avoid.


So in terms of skills, we will be focusing a lot on copywriting, creating a sales process, and essential aspects of digital marketing. These are valuable skills and they are also quite expensive to hire for.


As I copywriter, in just my second year, I was charging $125+ an hour. When starting out you need a lot of copy, so it's critical you develop a basic ability or at the least, understand copy enough to be able to judge if the copywriter you hire knows what they're doing.


Third, you're going to build your key marketing assets. This includes things like your website, an initial email sequence for potential clients, and an irresistible package.


Without these finished assets, all the knowledge and skills in the world aren't going to get you a single client.


Yet, just having these assets, like if I gave you some cookie cutter template 1000 other people were using, wouldn't equip you for long term success.


You'd fool a few people with your "I'm a certified life coach who will help you live your best life" website...but you're not going to go far. For your marketing assets to truly be assets, YOU must have the knowledge and skills required to create them.


We'll be doing all this together inside The Free Freelancer 2.0.

Confidence Coach

Having the support of the group and Dan has given me the confidence and courage to just carry on. Dan understood me and it was great to have somebody who is also an ENFP who understands why we can’t just always get things done. I’m now at the position where I’m really excited about the future and I think for the first time I have a clear goal, I know where I’m going, and I finally feel like I’m on the right path!

It’s not just about what Dan coaches, it’s also about how he coaches. You’ll find he’s empathic, particularly in the times when you’re struggling.


He can be very direct when he needs to be, without being overpowering. 


Also he creates this environment in the group that actually makes it fun.

Why Being With Fellow NFs is So Different

"I always thought I could do so much if I didn't procrastinate. Now understanding why I'm procrastinating and how to use it as a strength is a game changer for me. I always thought I was behind and I think you gave me permission to not only be OK with working in sprints and how to use it to my advantage.

It's something I've struggled with most of my life...but now it's become a superpower"

"It's one thing hearing you're special as an ENFP...but you're showing us how we're special and how we can use it to better the world."

"Being in a group with Rachel and Kimberly has honestly brought the most value out of this program out of everything.

They're so inspiring to keep going, because I, I mean, I guess like most ENFPs, there is a part in the middle where I just, I just wanted to give up on everything and I got so overwhelmed. And let me tell you, these two ladies, like it was such a safe space for me to express and it became like, not a therapy session, but it was like, it's okay, we all do this. We all go through this. Here are some solutions. Let's talk it out. And it was like every week it was I know that even though I'm not feeling it that week, I always leave the session inspired. So that's something that I absolutely love. So thank you."

  • About The Program Leader, Dan Johnston

    I started as a freelance writer in 2011 when it seemed like I had hit rock bottom. I grew this business to support my move from Canada to Costa Rica, New York, and Hamburg, Germany in 2012.


    In 2013 I began writing for myself and published my first two books. This is also the year I launched my coaching business from scratch.


    I know this sounds like horse#@it but ever since I have been a kid I had this deep caring for business owners and people going after their dreams. I’ve always encouraged people to go for it in their own lives and love supporting them with the business know-how and strategy to succeed at it.

    Perhaps most importantly, according to my clients I'm a hilarious guy and, despite the fancy bio, as authentic, down to earth, and personal as one can be.

    Yasmine (ENFP) Coach (Morocco)

    "For me, the program was insanely useful. The trainings are packed with so much valuable information, some of them I watched multiple times, and I still go back to them very often...I feel like you could go and try to do it by yourself for three years, or you could get the program and learn from somebody who shares everything with you. Plus the information is adapted to your personality type, which is super useful. Especially, it's a huge contrast with the free information you can find online.

    Plus Dan is really approachable, really kind, really empathetic. He really cares that everyone stays on track. Basically I'm super happy and I recommend it to anyone who wants to start an online business start working for themselves."

    Andrew  (ENFP) Copywriter (USA)

    "Working with Dan & the community is always fantastic! It's helped me figure out the right direction and stay on track, overcoming fear and growing both personally and professionally. Since starting our work together, less than a year ago, I completely changed career paths and became a successful freelance writer, and now I'm starting to move abroad as the world opens back up. Dan has helped me create an awesome life that I'm thrilled to live, and I'm more confident, productive and happy than ever. I can't recommend him enough - if you're thinking about working with them, do it!!"

    Taken From Anja's End of Course Feedback Form:

    "For me, this course helped me most with defining who I am and how I work best. What circumstances do I need to thrive, and where do I struggle? What can I offer to people? It should be something that sparks joy in me as well? And with finishing the course, I have a clear path to walk on. I know the next steps I have to take.

    In the role of teacher, trainer, or coach, what did you appreciate? What could I improve?
    "I truly felt that you want us to succeed with our goals. Your openness, honesty and your perspective are very valuable. I wondered if that isn't too much for yourself at times, being available to us on that level for 12 weeks!!!


    What are 3 things you have progressed on, or accomplished, since we began?
    "-I know what I want and need to work best, and I learned to accept myself like that.
    -I have a new, fantastic website with a great offer for writers.
    -I understand that a live program with a group setting is very motivational and helps me take the steps I might have been too afraid of otherwise. It also helped me stay focused and on track!

    Overall, what are you most proud of? What can you pat yourself on the back for?
    "The website! I am very happy that I have this beautiful website now.

    So far, what have been your biggest insights (personal or business), lessons, or takeaways since January?
    "You don't have to do this alone! Whenever you struggle with reaching a specific goal, seek help from other people who have walked your path before. Investing money in yourself and your future is worth it, and you should prefer live workshops over video courses as you will feel more accountable.


    What has your experience in the program and community been like? What stands out for you?
    "I loved the teaching lessons as I enjoy learning and gaining new insights. The group was so motivating, and the people all so welcoming and open, full of ideas and inspiration. I got excited about the possibilities I had to move forward with my business.

    How have you changed since January?
    I am more confident and self-aware of who I am and what makes me thrive. I have an optimistic outlook on my financial future because I see the steps I need to gain clients for my coaching business.

    If someone wasn't sure about joining, or had negative experiences with business training programs in the past, what would you want them to know?
    This program is not about copying someone else's business strategies. You will find and define your unique strengths and build a business from there that suits you and your lifestyle choices. Dan supports you wholeheartedly, as will the other participants in this program.


    Using the group's energy and throwing yourself entirely into this experience will let you take significant steps towards your financial independence. In the end, you will have taken the essential steps to build a future-proof, fluent business that grows together with you.

    Anja Renner, Germany

    INFJ and Writing Coach

    "Do you know that feeling of being lost, aware of your drivers and dreams but totally confused regarding your path and how to get in there? Well, that's how I was feeling last December, when Dan's email about the Free Freelancer course changed all my plans and enlightened my way.
     
    I can't find enough words to express my gratitude to him and the wonderful group of people and dreamers who engaged in this journey.


    A journey with ups and downs, with enthusiasm and fears, with great ideas and deep doubts.
     
    A journey where Dan showed us all that we already are - even still not fully aware of it - and what we can become, through his greatly insightful tools, advice and information on how to create our own project/business and jump into the freelancing market confident about our values and the uniqueness of our products.
     
    Now, it's up to us to take actions and put in practice all that we learnt and benefit from the fruitful connections we built along the course.
     
    So, if you see your future self working on your own to support people, in any way possible, and if you dream high, Dan will help you dream even higher, building with you the stairs and the bridges that you need to reach your goal."

    Stories From Past Members

    Tara Nelson - Copywriter and Web Developer INFP (USA)

    Craig Deuchar - Voice and Presence Coach (UK)

    I was a bit nervous about signing up for the Free Freelancer - I've never done an online course like this before, and handing money over to this guy I saw on YouTube felt a bit weird!

    After all, you can find all this stuff free online, right?

    But from the second the course started, I knew I'd made the right decision. The course material is really excellent, but what makes the program so effective are the group calls. I always come away with more clarity and motivation.

    You get a lot of one-to-one coaching and support, and Dan's advice is incredibly practical, specific and helpful. As an entrepreneur, it can be easy to get stuck. When I go into a group call, I know I'll get the answers I need - and more importantly, I'll get thoughts, suggestions, and concrete advice I wouldn't have found anywhere else.

    I honestly believe the Free Freelancer program is the main reason that I still have a business - and certainly the main reason I'm making a healthy profit!

    Dan has helped me with everything from choosing a target market to defining a marketing strategy. The sales training is invaluable and has helped me feel confident selling my services without ever feeling icky or too pushy.

    The templates for everything from cold emailing to proposals are worth their weight in gold. Even more valuable, Dan has helped me get my mind right, stop underselling myself, stick to my business plan and keep going strong.

    The course has already paid for itself, and I have no doubt will pay dividends long after it's over. If you want to work for yourself, or set up a remote business, this is the course you need. Don't hesitate!

    Rosanna Campbell, Copywriter

    Dan pulled together a great group of people, he did a fantastic job facilitating discussions, and the content got me thinking in a new way about how to get my business going.

    It’s been a year since I completed the Free Freelancer program. I’m actually doing what I want to be doing now and making a living at it.

    With Dan’s help, I’ve completely turned the corner on what seemed like an eternal (6+ years) career change process. It’s been a transformational year, and there are several opportunities in front of me now that I could only have dreamed of a year ago.
