Man, I never get to see my family which sucks
Busines is going fine, but when was the last time you got to see your family? Last date with your wife?
I’ve been writing way too long proposals, winning just 30% of them. Even if a proposal led to a contract, I was still charging way less than I needed. Freelancing was barely sustainable for me. Curtis and I had one call where he explained how to talk to prospects to find their value. He showed me how to build out a winning proposal with less effort. After applying his advice my next client went for my highest priced option that was double their budget. The coaching time already more than paid for itself within 2 weeks.
One 15 minute call with Curtis helped me realize my worth to a client and gave me the confidence to ask for it. With that confidence I was able to negotiate a 30% higher rate per month on a long term contract. If I hadn’t talked to Curtis I would have left thousands of dollars on the table.

So you’re looking at freelancing and want to know what the most in demand freelance skill is. I get it. You want to do something that people will find valuable and continue to find valuable. Something that will last for years so you can become a specialist and charge well. PHP is quite popular and […]
A few weeks ago I gave you a primer on what Bullet Journalling was so that you were familiar with the ground rules of the Bullet Journal system. Now, some parts of it I loved and some parts of it, just didn’t seem to work for me. Today I’m going to walk you through the […]
We’ve spent the last few weeks talking about getting your deep, focused work done in the midst of all the distractions that are thrown our way. A friend of mine inspired the series as we looked at his work in the midst of needing to deal with support. Today, we’ll go over the essential elements […]
This week for our blog series you guys get to listen to a new voice. I’ve been the “behind the scenes” person in Curtis’ business from the beginning and when we were talking about starting to run a series of posts on his blog every now and then he asked me if I would be […]
When my oldest daughter started to read on her own it took so much concentration. Every single word involved 120% of her attention. She’d start to sound out a word, get close and guess and then ask me because it wasn’t quite right. I’d tell her what word she was searching for and she’d go […]
There is an interesting study that says we’d rather make $30k a year knowing that everyone else makes $28k than make $36k knowing everyone else makes $38k. This seems crazy to me because in the second scenario we are making $6k a year more. But the research doesn’t lie. It’s been done over and over […]
