I started my business in 2012 at the age of 57. I wanted to be self-employed, have a flexible schedule, be able to work from anywhere and do what I love. I also needed to hone my skill set. I found that with Freelance University.

Freelance University is one of the very few experiences I have found that offers a 360 degree support network to ensure your freelance success. Within the first three weeks of joining the University and applying what I learned, I had landed my first client… it just works!

Meet the Co-Founders of Freelance University

Hi there!

When we started freelancing online in 2003, there was virtually no support or training for VAs or Freelancers. We had to figure everything things out and learn the hard way. It was tough, but we got there in the end.

It’s our desire that all our students have the freedom to create their own business, define their work-life balance, and pursue a career that ignites their passions. That’s why we decided to launch Freelance University back in 2008 to provide a one-stop professional development platform for Freelancers, Virtual Assistants, and Online Professionals. Since then, we’ve had the privilege of training over 25,000 virtual professionals in more than 75+ countries.

We have enjoyed the great freedom of working from home while raising our 5 daughters who are the greatest blessings of our lives.

We look forward to meeting you and hopefully seeing you at our University soon!
To Your Success,
Craig & Kelly Cannings
