Episode 54: Another angle to making money online through web design.

Chris is a self-taught UX/web designer that works for a tech startup in Arizona. BUT, he didn’t start there.

For 13 years he was basically a full-time musician. While he loved his full-time job it became clear that he would need to make more money to support his 3 daughters as a single dad.

That’s when he turned to web design. He started learning everything he could about 5 years ago and then began freelancing in his free time shortly after. That led him to where he is today.

Now, instead of freelancing in his spare time he teaches other people how to take the same path he did at and with his podcast with the same name.

He loves helping people finding break through in their lives through the gig economy and has devoted himself to helping others find the life change he has through web design.

Episode Description:
You gotta meet Chris Misterek who, after an abrupt divorce, had to find a way to supplement his income. He tought himself web development and design, and quadrupled his W-2 earnings within two years. Now, Chris believes ANYONE can do this work with the right guidance, mindset, and training. Have a laptop? Build a business you can run from anywhere in the world!

Episode Highlights:
5:07   My encouragement to everybody who's thinking about getting into web development is just go easy on yourself in those first few months and realize that once you get over that hump, it becomes a lot easier.

16:47   Eventually it's going to be that every single company is going to have an app that is associated with their business. It's important to kind of get in on these trends now. People often ask me, am I too late? Am I too late to become a web designer? And, and the answer very simply is absolutely not!

19:47   The the way to make a significant amount of money per project is to become the consultant. To help people with the whole idea of how their website is going to help their business grow and move forward.
