!!!Your Success Story Starts Here!

Skip the years of trial and error and get the help you need today.
So you want to be a freelancer? Or want to make some extra income? Or maybe, you would just like a flexible, work-from-anywhere job?
Maybe you’ve heard you can work from anywhere in the world on your own schedule full-time or part-time…it’s up to you.
You might be asking yourself…
Is this really possible?

You’ve seen others do it, but maybe you have doubts about whether you can do it…

With so many questions hijacking your thoughts sometimes, it can feel impossible to muster up enough confidence to forge ahead.
And no matter how much research you do, some days, it seems you’ll never find the clarity and guidance you need to pick a path and pursue it with certainty.

What Students are Saying about Freelance University!

“I recommend Freelance University for three main reasons. One, for the support from the community and mentors in the FB group. Whenever I have a Q about anything I think about asking FreeU first. Two, the wealth of trainings available on such a varied range of subjects. Three, the Freelance Directory.”

Elizabeth Smith

What Students are Saying about Freelance University!

"Freelance University has taken my business to another level."

Last week a client told me: I don’t know what you’ve been doing for the past couple of months, but you’re killing it”. You know the only thing that changed? I registered for FreeU! Since then, my clients have been giving me more responsibilities! Every time I have a question about how to handle a situation with a client, or a task, I am confident that I can get the answers in one of FreeU’s classes. Plus, the community is amazing!! I can genuinely say that Freelance University has expanded what I believed was possible. You need to sign up!

"FreeU has been the primary motivator in the growth and success of my business".

Having launched my business at the onset of COVID-19 proved daunting at times but the fabulous FreeU community provided continuous inspiration and practical advice for growing even in the midst of this global pandemic.The value FreeU has added to my life and business far outweighs the costs involved and FreeU is actually incredibly affordable. I’d definitely recommend you join today and experience this encouraging group for yourself.

Meet the Co-Founders of Freelance University

Hi there!

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

It’s our desire that you have the freedom to create your own business, define your work-life balance, and pursue a career path that fits your current stage of life perfectly. 

That’s why we decided to launch Freelance University back in 2008 to provide a one-stop learning community. Since then, we’ve had the privilege of training over 25,000 students in more than 75+ countries.

Over the years, we have enjoyed the great freedom and flexibility of working from anywhere through many changes and seasons of life. 

We would love to support you as you embark on your own freelance journey, so hope to see you soon!

To Your Success,
Craig & Kelly Cannings

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!

What’s It Cost to Enroll in Freelance University?

Many online courses for freelancers cost up to $1,500 and those courses only teach ONE skill. And often there is no mentorship and community. So, you’re left on your own to figure things out.

Even if you skip the expensive courses and you just bought all the training you need from a course marketplace instead, at $10-$20 per course it adds up. It would still cost at least $800-$1000. That’s at a minimum

And you may not have access to expert mentorship, a supportive community, and ongoing education like with Freelance University.

That’s why we’re not asking for $1,500 or even $1000 to enroll in Freelance University.

What Students are Saying about Freelance University!

"I LOVE the priceless information and training along with the Facebook community."

To me FreeU is almost a “necessary business expense” (which is tax deductible 😊) and worth every penny. Especially for a new freelance startup, there’s a lot of other “schools” out there, but none compare with this one. Additionally, Kelly and Craig bring so much of themselves to it and are awesome to deal with! This is a MUST!

Cindy Frisendahl

"I started my VA 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 FreeU. FreeU has the best model for on-line training that I have ever seen for Freelancers. l love that for a yearly fee, I can take all of the courses offered in the comfort of my office at home or wherever I happen to be in the world!
