ANASTASIA ILYUSHINA,
21 YEARS OLD
BATCH: FEBRUARY 2020
REGULAR INCOME STARTING AT 150,000 RUB (~$2100) PER MONTH ON LAUNCHES
Ā«FREELANCE HELPED ME UNDERSTAND WHO I AM AND GAVE ME A GREAT INCOMEĀ»
POINT A:
I was a full-time student, and I did copywriting as a freelancer. My income was about 1,000 RUB (~$14) a week . I worked a lot, writing texts at a cheap rate and had no free time. I was constantly stressed and did not sleep well, because my rating on the freelance site affected my income.
POINT B:
I work with the production and launches of infoproducts, making a regular monthly income starting at 150,000 RUB (~$2100).
Once I joined the project, I outgrew the manager position and became a producer. Now I plan to buy an apartment, develop, promote myself on social media and enter the American market. I'm working on my English and building business processes, so that I have enough time for myself and promotion, too!)
MY PATH:
FOR FUTURE STUDENTS:
If you have doubts now, if you do not know what you want, then let me tell you that freelance is something that will allow you to find yourself, no matter how cheesy that sounds.
I went to law school, which was my dream, because I wanted to work as a lawyer, just like in "Suits". Then I realized that even though I was interested in it, I didn't want to burn out at work for 50,000 RUB (~$700). Doing management and production helped to make my life better.
Management literally changed my life.
The skills of promoting, creating a personal brand will be useful in absolutely any sphere! You will be grateful for this experience, even if you don't join our happy group of freelancers working under a palm tree :)
At first I tried to work as a copywriter. I created a profile on a website. If you're thinking about becoming a copywriter, get rid of this crazy idea. It's not good!
I occasionally saw Polina's posts on Instagram, showing her interesting life, and eventually I realized that management could be a good job for me, too. I saved up for the course by copywriting.
I decided to join the next batch of "Manageryata", and I spent all my money to buy the course. I'm certainly grateful I did!
One time I took an order for 150 or 200 rubles (~$2-3). It was necessary to rewrite a text about some tires, but I didn't understand anything about them. I spent two nights rewriting it, crying with despair, fatigue. I thought that my rating on the website would decrease, and I wouldn't find any more clients ... Then I started making 2,000 rubles (~$28) a week, which seemed to be pretty good.
I used to think that producing was difficult, that only super smart people with a lot of experience could do it seriously. This is not true!
I realized that I didn't want to live like that anymore. I am a full-time student, so I need remote work that I can do in my free time.
I quickly found a job. I was a copywriter during the course, and after completing it, I became a manager. I worked with several accounts, gaining experience and planning to develop further in this direction, but then one of my bloggers decided to launch an educational project, and this became my current focus, which I really like!
Now I am learning to delegate, to hire specialists. I have big plans for the future. I want to take up more interesting projects and increase my profit. I had my coolest case in September: 3.5 million from the course with coverage of 1,500 people and a target budget of about 100,000 rubles (~$1400).
Most importantly, freelance made me understand who I am and only then gave me a great income.
Polina has great methodology in her courses. As a person who has gone through hundreds of educational products, I understand that no one else really cares about their students' results like her.
I realized I want to do something interesting and creative, and in this country, I definitely do not plan on working in law anymore. Freelance allows me to go where I want.
Made on
Tilda
