Digital Freelancer is the web’s most comprehensive resource for independent creatives who want to take their business to the next level. We provide training, tools, and community support that helps thousands of digital freelancers build and sustain thriving independent businesses.
Connor Black made a lot of mistakes when he started out as a freelancer. Eventually, he figured out how to go from an independent creative to heading up a multi-million dollar agency, but not without some bumps and bruises along the way.
Frustrated with the fact that most established content producers were focused on promoting inspirational puff pieces and selling info products, Connor started Digital Freelancer as a way to provide freelancers with actionable advice around scaling their business. As a point of differentiation, Digital Freelancer not only teaches creatives what they should be doing, but also how to get it done.
At its core, Digital Freelancer is designed to shift the perspective that most freelancers have about their business. You’re not a transactional service provider, you’re an independent business owner.
With a small team of veteran freelancers and member success professionals at his back, Connor is laser-focused on building out a suite of training, tools, and a thriving online community that will allow thousands of freelancers to achieve their dream of freedom and fulfillment.

An online Slack community that brings together 1,000+ independent creatives who share knowledge, make connections, find new work, and learn how to run their business more effectively.
