The ULTIMATE Guide To Profitable Freelancing In 2018

The ULTIMATE Guide To Profitable Freelancing In 2018

How about I start this post with defining what Freelancing actually means, so we can get on the same page. A Freelancer is a self-employed individual with a valuable skill who doesn’t have to commit to a single or long-term employer. They work independently for several different companies or clients from the comfort their home or any place of their choosing and mostly from their computer! Notice the part where I said with a “Valuable Skill” ? it is very important to have a skill first before thinking of freelancing, if you don’t have a skill that is valuable and you know people are making money with, you cannot be a freelancer! (what would you offer people as your service?)

A little background about me and my freelance journey. I started very young – at the age of 19 – immediately I was done with Uni, I chose Web and Graphics design as my preferred field, I have worked with a bunch load of clients (both good and bad), I have been able to build my freelance business that was started on my Grand-Mother’s dining table into a Sought-after Creative design agency in London (I’ll give you the link to my agency’s website at the end of the post), I currently mentor, coach and guide other freelancers (and newbies) on how to become more effective, get the right skills and charge what they deserve.

[Video] Nobody’s Opinion Matters

Hey!! In this chilled and laid back video, I talk about topics ranging from me deciding to quit music to start a career in Tech, how I said “Fuck you” to everyone’s opinion about how my life should turn out to be and how one of the best things we can do as humans is to pursue what makes us happy instead of living according to what people expect from us. You owe yourself happiness.

Enjoy!

This One Habit Transformed My Life as a Young Hustler- Steven Ndukwu

steven ndukwu

There are two ways of attaining financial freedom; it’s either choosing to work 9-5 or becoming an entrepreneur. Whichever you chose, it is up to you, they both got upsides and downside but as a young person, you have the time and resources to try both methods out

As the title says, “the one habit that transformed my life”, Well, One habit changed which lead to serval things changing, which I am going to elaborate shortly.

The 5 Must Have Traits To Become Successful In Any Field

5 Must Have Traits To Become Successful In Any Field

Even though success means different things to different people, almost everybody can agree on the fact that we all want to achieve success. We want to taste it and have it so that we can provide for ourselves and people we care about and love. This is why we burst our asses everyday doing different things, learning new skills, going to jobs we don’t necessarily feel passionate about and doing anything humanly possible to achieve “success”. How about we pause for a minute, what does success actually mean to you? Have you ever taken a moment from the hustle and bustle of life to define what success means to you as a person? A well defined meaning of Success would be “achieving the goals and dreams you have for yourself” so therefore being successful means the achievement of desired visions and planned goals.

Before I go further into the 5 Must Have Traits for Success, be sure to define what Success will mean to you as a person.

Radio Diamond Interviews Daniel Damilola Nejo

Got invited to Radio Diamond in Manchester for a interview by Miss Motivator. I had a lot fun during my 2 days stay in Manchester, it was amazing going to the “country side” of the UK.

In this interview, we talked about a lot of things; from me moving to the UK to business online success to me being a stammerer and how that came about and some other interesting topics. Enjoy 🙂

How To Pick The Right Hustle & Become A Full Time Entrepreneur!

how to start a hustle and business daniel damilola nejo2

Being self-employed and “your own boss” is becoming more sexier and appealing now than ever. Almost everyone wants to be their own boss, even my younger brother who is still in Uni has been telling me “Big bro, I don’t want to work for anyone when am done with school, I want to be my own boss just like you”. Little does he know that its not as easy as it looks or sound, actually, a lot of people don’t know as well so its a universal thing. I won’t lie though, the idea of being able to work for yourself, not have a boss, work at your own times, pick your days off (even if entrepreneurs don’t have days off) and do what you like is so intriguing and some times feels so far fetched but its not. In this post, I will not give you “Woo Woo” information like a lot of people do just to hype you up, I will give you practical knowledge and guide just like I always do on The Presidential Hustle, I will keep it 100 with you and at the end of the post you should have something solid to work with.

How I Started & The 3 Steps To Becoming A Well Paid Website Designer

daniel damilola nejo become a well paid website designer

If I give you £1000 rightnow, how will you feel? Don’t run to the comment section yet to write how you will feel – I already know because I will also have the same feeling. What if I show you how to make £1000 or even more than that over and over again  – how will you feel? Much better, happier and more excited? You see, its better to teach a man how to fish than to give him fish because when you give him fish – he will be excited for a moment in time and the fish will disappear just like any other good thing in life but if you teach him how to fish – he can go to the stream on  his own over and over again to catch not just one fish but more and he might get lucky one day to catch a fish with gold coin in its belly. Wait! the tittle of this post isn’t about fish – you clicked on this post to read and learn about how to become a well paid website designer not a fisherman, lol. Chill bruh, I got you.

My Experience In a 9-5 Job & 3 Ways To Quit and Do What You Love.

My Experience In a 9-5 Job & 3 Ways To Quit and Do What You Love.

Don’t believe the hype, don’t quit your job just yet. Be strategic about it, it’s very easy for someone who’s already a successful entrepreneur or someone who doesn’t have context about your life to tell you to quit your job and become an entrepreneur. If there’s one thing I try to do with my videos, blogposts and content generally is to always ensure that am saying it as it is and am keeping it 100, never over hyping and never over simplifying anything. Keeping it white and black.

[The Breakdown] How Much Should You Charge For A Website Design In 2017?

how much to charge for website design in 2017

Being a Website designer myself, I cannot count how many times have googled “How much does a website cost”. Even though have been in the game since 2013 and have had the opportunity of designing numerous websites for various clients around the globe, I still always search that term to see what others are charging and how what I charge compares to theirs. We humans always want to be sure that we are not been cheated and that we are getting what we deserve or what the service we render is worth.

I remember in 2015 when I was in my home office in Nigeria and a thought just crossed my mind.

So, I called my mentor – a London based Entrepreneur who happened to be a client of mine at that time and who is still till today and told him about my intentions and his exact words were ” Yes!

[Video] How To Get Paid More By Doing Less (leveraging already created works)

One of my favorite quotes of all time is by Pablo Picasso (one of the greatest artists) – he said “Good Artists Copy, Great Artists Steal”. The reason I love the quote so much is because even though he said it over 50 years ago, it still remains valid that most things in life has been created, and smart people always find a way to leverage on already existing works, content, ideas or designs. Using this strategy allows you work smart and less rather than unnecessarily hard and it allows you earn more because time is money, if you can save time – you can earn more with the saved time.

In the video above, I decided to shed more light on the topic and share some knowledge from my personal experience. I hope you enjoy the video and find it interesting.

Make Money On The Low In Uni With Emmanuel’s Revolutionary App – “UnItrade”

Am a trouble maker, as far as trouble making goes. It was a chilled evening at Middlesex University, even though I was done with my Masters at that time, I was in Uni on that day because I was working on a web project for an ex lecturer of mine. So immediately I was done with the meeting, I decided to chill at the MDX Quad (this is a place where students chill, relax and meet other students). If I am being honest – I chill at the Quad to approach beautiful girls ( hahahaha ) yes, I just let the cat out of the bag. But If I am being modest, I would say I chill at the Quad to relax and enjoy the view and start conversations with beautiful people.
