Hi all!

I was fortunate enough to run into TMFL around 2 years ago. It inspired me to get out there are try to build a business.

My first go at it was building a content website part-time - the dream of passive income was hard to resist. In the end, it didn't work out for a number of reasons but I learned a shit load from doing it. Then about 10 months ago, I came across a guy on reddit, who's also a part of this forum, who was building websites for a living and making great money.

So I thought, hang-on, I know how to build a website & I really enjoy doing it... I should do that. So I gave it a go and started cold-calling businesses relentlessly according to this guy's method. And it worked!

Now I'm building websites full-time, working for myself and it's F*cking awesome. No more working for the man and no more pulling pints. The freedom is intoxicating.

I'm here because I want to build this business into a digital agency. Helping other businesses make money feels great and I figure that what I learn, I'll eventually be able to apply to a future product business that's more in line with the Fastlane mentality.

Based on what I've got out of MJ and the people in this forum already, I pumped to be a part of this community too.

Thanks for having me!

Hey Tom, welcome to the forum.

I'm a fullstack developer myself, but I don't know how to start finding clients. Upwork seems like a bad place to start honestly. What did you do exactly? Feel free to make another topic to explain it if you want to.

Sounds like it. Welcome Tom - let us know if you need any help. This forum is an amazing resource for learning and sharing. Maybe start a progress / execution thread.

I’m pretty sure it’s my post you found so happy to help a little.

Hey Hylle,

I'm one of those 'annoying' cold-callers haha. I've gotten all my work (a part from a couple of referrals now) through cold calling. When I move to the UK, I plan on attending networking events as well.

I agree that upwork is a bad place to start. This thread will explain why and also help get you started: GOLD! - How to Learn Code, Start a Web Company, $15k+ per month within 9 months.

Also, make sure you join this Facebook group: Make Money with Web Design. The guy who wrote the above thread manages it and it's an amazing resource of talented web designers & digital marketers of all different levels.

Good luck and hopefully I'll see you around that facebook group.
