How to avoid the 5 mistakes that most designers are guilty of, and that are costing them BIG. Every month.
What are the 2 switches you need to do in the way you approach business with your clients, so you can stop what I call the Freelancer’s Income Roller Coaster.
The mindset that’s stopping you from growing and getting your ideal clients (and what to do instead).
My #1 strategy to make my ideal clients hire me over everybody else (and without even interviewing other designers).
“I don’t think you understand how much I look forward to your emails and tips. Thank you!”
“Ok, yours are the only emails I read. You ALWAYS make me read them. And again, I don't read newsletters. Never. Ever. Where do you get the inspiration to write like that?”
“I needed to hear this today! Thanks for the encouragement and reminder! :)”
“I have way too much information coming to my email everyday (that's so easy to do) but I always open and read your entire emails. Thanks so much!”
“I really love 🤩 your emails and literary wait for them. You just don't share valuable information but also share real example, actionable insights/steps, emotions (that is so cool 😄) and that is really rare✨. I'm really lucky to have found you.”
“Mai, I have been meaning to send this email for a while. I just want to tell you that you guys are amazing and have given me, US, so much amazing info and tools. Please keep doing what you are doing. I am definitely one of your biggest fans. Thank you all so very much again.”
“Hey Mai! Here is Mattia from Italy 🇮🇹. I’ve some doubts: your emails seem so authentic that I can't really understand if it's a simple marketing move or if it's more of an autobiography of your working life (...). I always read your emails with pleasure and it's amazing to compare your stories with my working life and my projects. Many thanks for always bringing such interesting content!”
“Hello Mai, thank you for your valuable content. I've been getting your emails for a long time now and I really enjoy them. Not only enjoy, but I also take your valuable advice and implement to my day to day life. And for that I'm really grateful to you.”
“Thank you for all your emails. I file them away for inspiration when nothing seems to be working and I can always count on you to give me some kind of inspiration that gets me moving. Thanks!”
“Hi Mai, You are so right! We want more! - Re-designed website about 5 times and just did not get it right until I stumbled across your guides!!! Now I have a better framework to work along and am very confident that it will be a professional site ONCE done! Thank you so much for sharing this most valuable knowledge!”

“Hi Mai, just wanted to let you know that I really appreciate your emails. It’s always great stuff to read and very inspirational! Keep it on.”
Is a must-catch if….
You do design for a living: websites, sales funnels, landing pages, logos, social media graphics, and whatnot, even if you didn't study design.
You feel that sometimes your clients micromanage your design choices as if they themselves were the designers.
You still can’t seem to be able to charge what you think your work is worth.
More than once you find yourself doing extra work without charging for it.
You’ve been doing design work for some time now, and still don’t feel that your business is growing significantly.
You wish potential clients don’t question your rates.
You are looking to book more of your ideal clients.
You want to lead your clients to success and get them to trust your leadership at every step.
I’m Mai. And I’ve been working as a designer for the past 10 years.
Truth is, I’m a self-taught designer, probably just like you. I found design almost by accident, and I made all these same mistakes when I was just starting out.
The good news? Most of the designers you look up to did too.
I gathered the top 5 mistakes that I think are stopping most designers from growing, and I created this free course so you can start fixing them one by one. Starting today.
What if this was the first step in fueling this year’s growth?
