to the digital economy
In the new age of the digital economy, being able to monetise your existing skills has never been easier.
But where do you start?
Sure there is a lot of information readily available on the internet - but we all know that trying to seek answers from the internet is like trying to drink from a fire hydrant
Too much information too soon leaves many aspiring freelancers stuck with analysis paralysis
It doesn’t have to be that way.
With freelancing, you CAN create a stream of income that gives you flexibility and freedom without having to go back to uni or invest thousands of dollars in set up expenses
And more importantly
It is not too late to freelance profitably in any niche that lights you up and brings you joy
The Australian Digital Job Accelerator was created as a safe space to equip you with the skills, support and accountability necessary to spread your wings and start forging your path as a successful freelancer
Whether you’re new to the digital work world or have years of experience being a freelancer, ADJA will help you attract loyal clients, build your digital portfolio and build lasting connections in one of the warmest and most welcoming communities on the internet
Wouldn't it be great to invest in your own abilities?
To create extra income in a way that gives you more satisfaction, flexibility and joy?
Create an extra income stream with your existing skills and knowledge
Society often tells us that the only way to financial independence is to get a ‘safe job.’ Others are too worried about the financial risk in case it all goes pear-shaped, leaving them in a cycle with no real way out.
We will never force you into a position where you are uncomfortable with your financial security.
With ADJA, we’ll give you all the tips you need to create a side-hustle without having to give up the security of your job.
As your client list grows and become more confident in selling your services it will ultimately become YOUR CHOICE if you want to take the leap full-time into your freelancing business.
More and more research is showing how the rat race has employees feeling unsatisfied, burnt-out and in some cases anxious to even go to work.
Taking your career into your own hands can seem like a daunting task, especially when you are 100% responsible for the outcome. That is why ADJA has been flexibly designed so you can start your freelancing career as a side-hustle while maintaining the security of your job.
And if you are reading this you have probably watched through dozens of YouTube videos, stared at different blogs and even scrolled through Instagram looking for advice or a ‘magic pill’ that will bring you all the success you could ever want.
While we can’t offer you that ‘magic pill,’ we do know that with the right guidance you can create a side-hustle that allows for more security and brings you joy.
Do you feel worried about your job security?
Is competing in the rat-race dragging you down?
Do you want the ability to choose who you work with?
Do you crave a more flexible lifestyle?
Do you want to earn an income doing something you love?
If you answered "YES" to any of the above it is time to take advantage of the booming digital economy
Be part of a supportive community
Usually, the most challenging part of taking the leap is that little voice that pipes up every so often, questioning our abilities.
With ADJA, you'll be amongst a supportive network of mentors, coaches and other aspiring freelancers ready to help you.
Because the little voice of doubt? Is totally normal - we all go through it at some stage.
You have two choices:
- You can sit and listen to it
- You can take action, lean on others for support and charge forward
With the Australian Digital Job Accelerator you'll be in a community of supportive likeminded people who will help and encourage you on your way
