You want more than the 9-to-5.

Hey, there’s nothing wrong with working 9-to-5. What a way to make a living! You support yourself and your family, and you’re doing okay. But doing okay isn’t cutting it for you. Maybe other people are cool with okay, but you want more. You always wanted more, but now you’re not sure how to get it.

You’ve heard of people who have freelance careers and it sounds so… free. How do they do that? Maybe you could do that if you didn’t have a mortgage. Or kids. Or a large, hungry dog who will only eat the expensive kibble. If only.

Hey, I like my job, I just need something extra.

Even if you’re happy in your job and you love where you work, you just want to do something on the side that creates a little extra income. You can pay off those student loans a whole lot faster. You could finally go visit that ball of twine in Minnesota. Maybe even Indonesia, where they don’t have twine monuments but really nice beaches and noodles.

Okay, I’m already freelancing. How do I get more work?

Maybe you’re already freelancing and you’re thinking, “GAH! How come everyone else seems to be doing so well and I suck?” Sometimes it seems like it all comes down to luck and knowing the right people. You’re amazingly talented and you should be doing better, you just can’t figure out how.

How do you even know all this stuff? Who are you?

I know about these thoughts. I had them myself, long ago. I’ve enjoyed a fabulous 12-year freelance career, I run my own business and I even make some passive income. It didn’t happen overnight and it wasn’t any snap of the fingers. It wasn’t easy and I went through tons of emotional trials, yet here I am. It’s an adventure. Do you like adventure? 

And hey, you’re probably a lot smarter than me. If I can do this, then you can, too. You probably have an idea of what you want to do. You might even be crazy super motivated. The only thing holding you back is the fear of going broke and eating out of dumpsters. Or trying to do some side hustle that actually causes you to lose a dumpster-ton of money instead of making it.

What if I… went for it?

If you did go for it, what would your partner say? What would your dog say? What would your bosses say when they find out?

Here’s what I’m going to do. I’m going to show you how to do more without going broke or getting fired. I’m going to light a path for you through the dark and stormy forest of – oh wait, that’s Lord of the Rings. It’s more like helping you step onto one of those moving walkways at the airport.

I’m sure I have a lot better metaphors, but the point is I’m going to help you build that freelance career. I’m going to show you exactly how to create that side hustle. My name is D.J. and I’m here to rescue you.

How do I do this? What’s next?

I’d like to extend a warm and hearty invitation to get on my email list. I know, I know, another email subscription? I get it. My promise to you is that you’re not going to start getting a bunch more ads and junk. And it won’t smell like an old copy of Vogue. More like a warm and hearty bowl of soup. I’m hungry. Are you hungry? Come with me, I know where they hide the snacks around here.

I’ll send you semi-regular emails about how to get started with your own version of more. I respond to every reply personally, there are no bots here. It’s free and you can unsub with a click anytime. Sign up below and I’ll see you on the other side.
