Make a six figure income as a fully remote creative freelancer, without using social media.

you need a system

coz color, perspective & keyframes don't mean a thang...

…if you can’t turn them into paid work.

If you’re posting on social media hoping to get work, you’re wasting your time.

If you’re spending hundreds (or thousands) taking courses to become a “better artist”, stop.

If you’re trying to find your artistic “style”, you won’t ever find it.

Going in multiple directions makes you mediocre. And mediocre freelancers do not survive.

To survive and thrive as a freelancer in the creative industry, you need a system.

But first…

Who the hell am I?

I’m Beini. I jumped ship from a fulltime studio job to fulltime freelance in 2015. I make six figures working five months out of the year, doing work ranging from concept design to title sequences to broadcast animations for clients in film, podcasting, tech, and music.

The rest of the year, I paint and write.

I started with zero clients and social media followers, yet made more money my first year of remote freelancing than at my studio job. I now have about two hundred followers on Insta, most of whom are bots 🤖

As I figured out my own way of freelancing, I watched all these freelance tips and groups and podcasts throw up any number of strategies to becoming a successful freelancer: making showreels, building a following, networking…

I didn’t do any of those things. And I was still landing projects. 

Why? Because I had figured out a system:

First, get consistent client work.

Second, develop your personal creative vision.

Third, get clients to pay you for your vision.

The result? Clients seek you out for your work, and you get to spend the lion’s share of every year doing personal work that’s meaningful to you.

The system is dead simple.

Read on.

I have been working as a designer for a few years, but as a beginning freelancer, I had a lot of doubts and questions about my potential success in this career path. The written course is a great wealth of knowledge, and the one on one calls with her allowed us to unpack the material in a way that was tailored to my needs. She was extremely patient, candid, and made sure that all of my questions and concerns were thoroughly addressed. She’s also just as spunky and smart in person as she sounds in her posts, and I truly feel like I have her in my corner! 10/10 it was worth every penny, and I would do it again 🙂

feedback from MENTEES

"Beini is not only an extremely accomplished and multi-talented person and someone to aspire to creatively and career-wise, but also an exceptional communicator and teacher. I intend to revisit this course as long as it's available to me. Our weekly calls were something that I looked forward to, and kept me accountable and present in my work week. I learned a lot about myself: especially where my time had been going and how I could incorporate my self-initiated projects and creative endeavors into each day, seamlessly. I've gained better perspective of my current client base and how I work with them and I have a fresh perspective on how I approach my creative endeavors. Im enjoying the journey much more. I highly recommend investing in yourself to be part of the mentorship program." --Jen Gaily, illustrator and graphic designer (has done the mentorship twice!)

"Beini is an amazing and patient mentor, a perfect guide for me to learn from as a beginner. I learned so much from her unique approach and philosophy throughout the course which has given tremendous benefits to my freelancing career in the long run." --Alex Tang, 3D animator and photographer

"Beini has created an incredibly valuable course. Not only will it always provide you with not only a better understanding on how to run your business, but how to refine yourself in the process as well. Her feedback and ideas are immensely insightful and help direct you to the next steps to expand yourself and your freelance business. Beini helped me refine my shine and this is highly recommendable and an investment you'll value!" --Keshvar Merchant, graphic designer and project manager

“After many years of trying to scoop up any job I could, I felt my identity as a freelance illustrator stagnating. Working with Beini got me clear on my niche, got my story on point, and set me on an actionable plan. I started getting results in the middle of the course – working with better clients in more specific areas while furthering my own artistic growth. Thank you, Beini.”--Josh Bauman, illustrator

“I’ve found the course and calls with Beini very helpful in moving forwards into a Motion Design career. She helped me focus how to communicate clearly to the types of clients I want to work for and also create an engaging portfolio site. Definitely the best business coach I’ve worked with who truly understands what it means to be a creative freelancer.”--Luke Stanley, motion designer

“Beini’s course proved to be very useful in a time where I was going through a lot of self-doubt. She lays out a clear structure that guided me through the different steps needed to restructure my approach to freelancing while fine-tuning my craft. She encouraged me to experiment and look for unexpected ways to be more creative and find my unique voice. I found her feedback to be very thoughtful and thorough in every lesson. By the end, I had a solid understanding of the steps I needed to take, with a more defined direction of where I wanted to take my freelancing business.”--Nayeli Lavanderos, illustrator and motion designer
