100% organic growth to $3k per month

Kevin Meng grew his freelance business 100% organically not using any freelancer websites when he was starting out, at least none that actually gave him any return.

Getting into content writing took about a year as a side hustle after Meng started teaching English in Prague.

The traction started when Meng reached out to a blogger with a personal email, then followed the advice given to him.

He hustled hard at the start, sent cold emails, and ignored the voices in his head to grow to $3k a month from nothing.

Find out the process Meng used to get started and face inevitable obstacles.

    Great interview which shows me my problem: Not enough patience getting clients. Thank you for waking me up
  • Caitlin Pyle
    Thanks! Yep, marketing is definitely a long game. :)
  • Loraine
    It's encouraging to hear that Kevin is thriving in his career without a college degree. I think society conditions us to believe that we can not be successful without completing higher education. Also, I enjoyed hearing that he does not wake up early because he doesn't have to! That's awesome.
  • Caitlin Pyle
    Hey, Loraine! I agree! Glad you enjoyed the podcast! :)
  • Edna Day
