Why Are the Best Developers Broke?

Was watching this video from Clever Programmer called, “Why Are the Best Coders Broke?” It’s about these coders he knows who’ve been coding for 20-30 years and only charge 30/hr.

Then, this other guy he knows…

Who’s been at it for just a couple years…

And, charges 150/hr.

So, what gives?

It’s what I always tell you. The freelance world is 100% different than the “tech job” world. That’s why you really shouldn’t take freelance advice from developers who’ve never actually freelanced (shocker, I know).

They just don’t get it.

At the end of day, clients don’t care.

You could’ve been coding 1000 years…

Don’t matter.

Can you deliver?

That’s the bottom line.

NOW… it works the other way, too. Clients also don’t really care if you’ve been coding for 30 days. Again, can you deliver? If you can… and you can demonstrate that in your marketing… Bob’s your uncle!

You’re set.

That should get you excited.

Because, you can get rolling with this as fast as you want to.

Just gotta buckle down, learn the tech…

And then, GO FOR IT!

Anyway, that’s where your favorite ranty uncle (that’s me) can help. I’ve got the coding training you need. But, also, the Upwork course that’ll show you how to turn those coding skills into a paycheck.

And, teach you how to demonstrate your skills in your marketing.

And, you can get it all for nada on SkillShare.

Just start the 2-month, no-cost trial here: https://www.skillshare.com/r/user/johnmorris

Take all my courses (especially Upwork 101).

Cancel anytime before the 2 month is up.

And, you’re all set.

Why not give it a try?

See ya over there,

John
