The best way to master a programming language is by working on real-world projects.
In this course, you will discover how to quickly monetize your coding skills through freelancing.
When it comes to freelancing as a developer, it may seem overwhelming and frustrating.
You may have the technical skills, but you may not know where to begin.
You may not know how to market and sell your services.
Perhaps you're not sure how to get clients or what to charge them when you do.
I've put together a quick start guide that walks you through the basics of how to freelance as a developer, so that you can make money sooner rather than later.
I think this resource will be helpful to you. Let me explain…

"I cannot wait to use this opportunity to create my own schedule. More than anything I want to be able to walk my kids to school and enjoy making them breakfast every morning; rather than practically pushing them out of the car, so I can get to work on time!"
- Alisha Arnold
"I would absolutely love to code from home within a year. I will be looking at your course for tips on finding leads. Thanks for who you are and for what you do!"

"I’m a stay-at-home mom of a 4 yr. old daughter due to her life-threatening food allergies. One income was NOT in the plan! Plus, as much value as there is in “mom-ing”, I just want something of my own! My aspirations/goals are to create and have something (a business) of my OWN! To be successful at my career WHILE homeschooling my daughter and kickin butt at being a wife and mom.
Also, I want to replace my husband’s original income, so that he can have the opportunity to choose something he loves to do rather than having to do what is necessary for the family! FREEDOM!!!!!"
- Brittany Bender
"I'm a full-time mom of two boys, ages 5 and 6. I'm also a full-time wife and a full-time paralegal. I joined to learn something new. I'm excited to do something different. My aspiration would be to start a side hustle, pay off some bills, and eventually work from home. I'm excited to learn from you!"
- Amy Hottman
"I signed up for the Freelance Developer Jumpstart since I have a certificate in web design & development. I am most excited about getting work and doing it on my own time. My aspirations are to be able to freelance doing web development and still be here for my children when they need me. They are 9 and 12."
- Denise Carty
"I am 58 and my husband and I started a multi-generational home with my mother-in-law, my daughter and her 3 kids (3, 6, and 10), and our son, his wife, and their 5-month-old. I am an industrial engineer by training but have spent several years teaching programming.
Now the plan is for me to continue as caretaker for my mother-in-law and the 4 grandkids. I want and need to bring some money into our home since most of my husband's paycheck is supporting us all with his job."
- Kelley Torongeau
"As a stay at home mom, I never thought I'd have the time or ability to even know where to begin. I'm excited to learn and gain marketable skills! I'd love to start my career in this field working for a company from home, so I can then gain the knowledge and experience to eventually start my own business in the future."
- Trixie Rowe
"I joined Freelance Developer Jumpstart because I'm self-taught and there are many gaps in my education. I've been trying to fill in those gaps, over the past few months and am always looking for tools to help me get a more rounded education.
At this point, I'm hoping to do something freelance that gives me autonomy and flexibility to work when and where I want (so I can continue to travel some). The thing I'm most excited about is possibly getting some good ideas about how to find projects that I can do at my current level. Thanks again for creating this course!"
- Brenda Keller
"I had recently started learning coding during the evenings while substitute teaching during the day. I look forward to getting clients as a freelance developer!"
- Kristen Alexander
"I signed up for this course because I wanted to learn how to go from no coding experience to working as a freelancer. I'm most excited about having a flexible, work-from-home income and doing something I think I will enjoy. Working from home is really a necessity for me right now after quitting my job. I love the freedom of being at home and being around my two dogs."
- Karen Cumberledge
"Finally making my way back to coding, which I'm excited about after finding out from Hahna that it's not too late to learn coding. I know a little bit of HTML and CSS, so I hope that I become a professional coder in the future. I also hope to code at home because I like the flexible schedule."
- Karen Nguyen
"I have no prior coding experience, but I am super intrigued by it, especially since my kids are doing this at school. I enjoy learning new things and I think any skills I can take away from this program and others will only add to my tool belt. I can also do some of that work from home, which is great because I have a husband and three children.
Having a fairly flexible job has made it possible to be at home with my kids when they were young and now be at home after they get out of school. My youngest is currently in preschool for about 3 hours a day. Starting next school year, I will have a whole 6 hours to myself to work and engage in other interests. I know that having technical skills can help me with my current job."
- Natalia Wheeler
"My son's computer teacher recently said coding is in high demand. I'm looking for a work from home option, as my kids need me at this time and I have always wanted to do this. Nothing is stopping me now!"

"It’s an opportunity that I had no idea existed! I’m excited to learn more and start doing it just to see what I can come up with!"
