For more and more people, running a freelance or solo business is living the dream. It's the freedom to create what you wish, how you wish, on your own terms and schedule.
But it’s not all unicorns and rainbows.
It can be tough to find the right advice and support you need to keep going in the right direction. And despite the many perks, a solo business can get lonely — even downright isolating at times.
Fortunately, it’s possible to connect with like-minded people who are on a path similar to yours. Plus, you can gain insight into the essential strategies, tactics, and technology that helps your business survive and thrive.
Never Have a J.O.B. Again
When freelancers and entrepreneurs talk about being “unemployable, it doesn’t mean they can’t get a job. It means they would never trade the freedom and creative satisfaction of running their own business to even consider traditional employment.
Of course, the key is to never be in a position where taking a job becomes a necessity. Your hard work is a big part of that, but it’s not enough.
Fortunately, you don’t have to go it alone to run a successful company of one. That’s where the Unemployable Initiative comes in.
We’re a collection of solo/small business owners who educate, support, and hold each other accountable to ensure that working for someone else never has to be an option.
The Three C’s of Solo Business Success
Success as a solo is not about being alone. It's about a single person or small team assembling various resources in pursuit of a creative vision, and then making it happen.
At one point, we all thought social media would provide us with those resources. Now, the distraction of platforms controlled by tech giants looking to make you the product has made social media a place to avoid rather than embrace.
The Unemployable Initiative is the antidote to vast and toxic social media sites. Our freelance and solopreneur members embrace a smaller and more intimate digital space that provides a meaningful experience that enhances their business and lives.
It's a place where you can interact with like-minded peers and truly be yourself, all while gaining the coaching, connection, and community you need to succeed.
Discover the strategies, tactics, and technology that help your business survive and thrive.
Connect with like-minded peers, build your expert network, find partners and new customers.
Belong to a true community that supports you, holds you accountable, and gets you.

I am relatively new to the field, but having learned so much from Brian Clark and the team at Copyblogger and Unemployable, I was excited to become a part of any group he created!
In addition to being masters in the field, Brian and Jerod are always so supportive. Their knowledge has helped me grow and learn enough to be able to finally get started with my business! I really feel privileged to be a part of this community and excited to see what the future holds!”
The commitment and knowledge here is second to none. Brian and Jerod deliver incredible information that is backed by a sincere effort to see us all succeed. Any and every solopreneur should belong to this community!”
The Unemployable Initiative has been a tremendous addition to my business life. The community is first rate, and events like the regular Q&As with Brian and Jerod are extremely valuable — whether you've asked a question, or not. Everyone in this community, from Brian and Jerod down to the newest members are so giving of their time, knowledge and experience. I can't recommend it more highly.
It's hard to find information and inspiration at the next level, especially for small businesses who aspire to big profits. I've been running an online business for over a decade and I'm finding the info provided in the Unemployable Initiative really useful and targeted. Thanks Brian and Jerod!”

Membership in the Unemployable Initiative is $495 per year. If you’re wondering just how great a value this is, let me give you some numbers.
When you join, you’ll have instant access to Email Marketing Essentials, a workshop with over 5 hours of step-by-step information on email marketing strategy and technology. It sells separately for $120.
Starting December 1, 2020, we’ll begin another 4-week workshop on running online communities as a revenue model. Once it’s done, it will also sell for $120 separately.
In the first half of 2021, we’ll do at least two more of these intensive workshops, one on affiliate marketing and another on creating effective sales funnels. That’s another $240.
So, that's $480 in valuable bonus content. And that’s before you factor in everything else the community has to offer — which represents the primary benefits of membership.
