Confidently Become a
Freelance Graphic Designer

Even as a new grad, without the feeling of, "Oh sh*t, where do I start? Can I pay my bills?"

Congrats, new grad!

You just spent an arm and a leg learning how to make kick-ass logos, branding guides and illustrating vector images in under 20 hours.

Now what?

You get hired for some ad agency for a mere $28k where you might be undervalued, underpaid, and overworked?

Nonsense!

It’s time to take control of your career. It’s time to learn all of the things that they didn’t teach you in college, yet are so important, for you to have a successful career as a Graphic Design Freelancer.

Hi, I’m Nicole, and I started my freelancing business my sophomore year of college. Now, I teach others how to do the same, so that they can escape the conventional 9 to 5, be their own boss, work when they want, from where they want, and with who they want. Oh yeah, and did I mention, you can make six figs while doing it?

Make it happen

Imagine what it'd be like to:

  • Take vacations when you want, for as long as you want
  • Experience professional growth and networking through multiple mentors and connections
  • Spend holidays with family
  • Get paid for every hour you’re on the clock (no more salary BS)
  • Travel the world and work from anywhere
  • Meet new friends who inspire you personally and professionally
  • Live debt-free and have enough money to max-out retirement savings

It’s possible. And Freelancers like me are living it.

Hey There, Creative Soul. Nicole Here.

You’re an ambitious and adventurous designer, who fears burn-out in your career, so… Let’s get creative.

Hands- up if you feel like life should consist of a little more than:

  • the monotony of a typical 9-5 job
  • working overtime with little incentive or reward
  • a lifetime sentence of paying off six-fig student loans

If you are really honest with yourself, maybe you are even second guessing this career choice altogether. You love designing, but with your current salary, you are not sure if the return on investment (ROI) is worth your student loan bill. 

Not to mention, your measly accrued vacation time keeps you from really exploring all the exotic places you dream of – and the time that you DO have to yourself consists of catching up on meaningless life clutter. 

You feel like there has got to be a better way, and it’s just a matter of time before your burnt-out career becomes extinguished.

And you felt that way BEFORE COVID…

Then Corona hit, and the market tanked. Your hours were significantly reduced or maybe you were furloughed, with no real clarity on when your job (or paycheck) might resume. I feel you.

With this change, opportunity arose for designers like us. The world went digital. It went online. It sought talent virtually. This is the time to STEP UP.

I saw what having an online business did for me during this crisis. It provided a steady stream of income for myself and the people I work with. I wanted to be able to help others do the same. 

So I created this mastermind group and community. It’s full of entrepreneurial-spirited designers that want to start and grow their own online businesses and virtual freelance reputation. 

If you want freedom to work where you want and when you want, to be your own boss, and to take control of your career, you are in the right place.

Don’t worry, I made the “new business startup” mistakes over the last 13 years already. So we’ll focus on what builds your success without the trial-and-error while saving you a sh*t ton of time and investment.

Would you like to take a step in a new direction and change your life?

I needed a website for my brand new business but couldn’t afford to sell a kidney to pay for it- I was only starting out. I reached out to Nicole and not only did she complete it under budget, our business generated 3 times more traffic with the website!
