Get a real person to help you plan, prioritize, and stay focused every week.

Be the best freelancer you can be with the help of a manager.

As a freelancer, you get to live the dream: Set your own schedule, do work you love, be your own boss (we'll see about that), and flexibility to live and work in the way that best fits you.

But, let's be honest, it's not that simple. As a freelancer you have to wear many hats, deal with stress and isolation, and sometimes it can be hard to stay focused on the right things. That's where we come in.

We provide all the good things a manager does, but without all the drawbacks. We help you plan, prioritize, and stay focused on a regular basis. We act as your sounding board, bringing a tough but honest outside perspective. We'll help keep you accountable. And best of all, we'll support, encourage, and cheerlead for you like no one else.

Get focused and stay on track.

I'm ready to add a manager to my team.
