Freelance Manifesto Book
Students from all over the world have already applied the lessons in the book to their freelance careers. Here’s what they have to say.
Within the first 3 months of following Joey’s tips on getting booked I had a client ask what they needed to do to make sure I was available. That’s a lot of power for a freelancer!
I’ve been using Joey’s lessons for over a year. In my first year of freelance, my goal was $100k in revenue. I was shy of that goal by about one project. This year using everything Joey teaches, if everything continues its course, I should reach that $100k in about 9 months. I’d probably be doing business out of a cardboard box if I hadn’t learned everything I did from Joey.
When I started applying the tips Joey talked about, I found myself in conference rooms pitching my reel to new businesses. It was very surreal. It’s almost scary how the things Joey predicts will happen ACTUALLY happen. If you drink the Kool-Aid, you won’t regret it.
I was going through a patch of weeks with no Bookings. I followed Joey’s freelance advice to following up with past clients and it got me booked the very next day. Sometimes you need someone to help you with the obvious ways of the business.
Joey’s Email and Google-fu insights have changed my entire approach to prospecting. Most recently these tips got me a job at CapitalOne which has only been a dream till now.
I don’t feel intimidated by the whole process anymore; in fact, I feel totally empowered. I’ve also doubled my day rate since 18 months ago and have been busier than ever. I have to pinch myself sometimes.
The strategies got me booked by 3 new clients, added to the roster for another 10, and make £7,500 all in 1 month. Not only that, it helped me get my foot in the door at a dream job.
Joey’s knowledge and info helped light a fire under my a** to make the jump from full time to freelance. Best decision I’ve made for my career.
Joey give’s you the map, the tools, the words, and the confidence to start or (like me) build upon my 5 year old freelance career. I owe this man the highest of fives and of course a beer!
I made $70K two years ago, but that increased to $124K last year after learning these tips only mid-year. I don’t work any harder, but I work and bid a lot smarter in the second half of last year. I’m really excited to see where Joey’s advice will take me this year and beyond. It’s timeless advice that I’d needed for a long time.

Since I started applying Joey’s client contact and tracking system, my freelance income has quadrupled. His techniques for getting and prioritizing work have had a very positive impact on my business.
You know that old saying, “give a man a fish and you feed him for a day, teach a man how to fish and you feed him for a lifetime”. Well, these email tips have taught me how to fish! I’m now an ace at warm emails and re-activating older clients. I’m booked to the gills.
Using Joey’s tips on how to make contact with potential clients was a game changer. I had been making it way harder than it needed to be, which was equivalent to writing cover letters and sending them to Santa Claus. The response rate I get now is at least 90% with much less effort.
