Zero to Freelancing

A 30-day fast-track to finding the best clients, winning high-paying gigs, and building the service business of your dreams.


$160,000…for one logo.

The number made me sit back in my seat for a few minutes—unable to really think clearly.

I was having a conversation with a freelance designer friend of mine. He told me about a fellow designer who recently landed a client deal to design their logo.

And the price tag?

$160,000.

That was insane.

Insane to think that while I struggled to make a few thousand bucks some months, there were designers out there who were making that kind of money on one project.

I mean, with that kind of money, I could completely pause my marketing efforts for the entire year, work feverishly for 9 months on this one singular client project, and then take a 3-month vacation with my wife and kids.

Clearly I was doing something wrong.

It became obvious that there was more to this “working for yourself” thing than just printing up some business cards, going to networking events, polishing up my portfolio and waiting for positive word of mouth marketing.

Not to say I haven’t been lucky enough to make decent money working for myself.

But the truth is: I’ve never come anywhere close to a number like that. And I’d be thrilled to make that much working for myself in an entire year.

And many freelancers—or wannabe freelancers—that I meet seem to be in the same boat.

So what is it that these kinds of wildly successful freelancers know that others don’t?

Well, there’s a lot.

And we know it because we’ve spent the last 8+ years talking to freelancers and indie entrepreneurs who are crushing it at business. We’ve recruited lots of them to share their secrets & tips with us on the Millo blog and podcasts.

Which means we’ve got a pretty good idea of what sets a successful freelancer apart from…well…a flop.

We have a pretty good handle on the habits, mindset, and daily rituals of freelancers who take their businesses to the next level.

And we think it’s time to compile years of learning into a quick-to-digest, 30-day, fast-track map to freelancing success.

We’re calling it “Zero to Freelancing” because we have one simple goal:

Level up your freelance game in 30 days or less.

If you’re already a freelancer, this course will fill in the gaps you’ve wondered about—like “where are all the really good clients hiding?” and “what should I actually be charging?” We’ll confirm some hunches you’ve always had about what it takes to thrive as a freelancer. And you’ll learn from freelancers ahead of you what it takes to keep improving and building your freelance business.

If you don’t really consider yourself a freelancer yet, this is your chance!

Never before has this size and caliber of incredible advice, tips, and secrets from such a diverse group of successful freelancers been compiled all in one place.

100% of the experts featured here have cracked the code on freelancing—discovering what it really takes to not just survive, but thrive in a service-based business.

Many of them featured in this 30-day roadmap have gone from a struggling freelancer to building an agency where they bring in enough client work to support a whole team of creatives.

And all of them have discovered the reality of freelancing: it’s extremely hard, but completely worth it.

They’re free from punching a clock.

They’re free to pursue projects that light them up.

They have the autonomy to build their business at their pace and in their way.

They don’t wait around for budgets to be approved by upper management. They don’t hunch in their chair, scrolling through facebook, waiting for the last 20 minutes on the clock to pass by just so their boss doesn’t see them leaving before 5:00 pm. Don’t worry, we’ve all been there.

They work—and live—on their own terms.

And Zero to Freelancing is going to show you how they do it.

Will it be easy? Of course not. Starting, building, and sustaining a business of any kind takes an insane amount of work, dedication, and grit.

But you can do this.

And with our 30-day fast-track guide, we’ll help you all along the way.
