You will not listen to one-way lectures, rather be in a digital classroom with some of the best experts and class fellows. Class size won’t be massive and you’ll have the floor to yourself to ask questions, debate, share your thoughts and contribute to everyone’s mastery.
Coursework like pop quizzes, short assignments, case studies can really help refresh and reinforce concepts. When everyone’s participating and sharing their ideas, you’ll feel challenged to come up with bigger and better ideas, thus having work to show by the end of the cohort.
Teamwork makes the dream work. Connect with your classmates, a group of like-minded people working towards the same goals and course outcomes as you. Support, challenge yourself and others, and possibly build lifelong relationships.
Live, cohort-based courses are all about the transformation over a short period of time. This is what you and your cohort work together to achieve. You will come out of this course transformed in many, many ways.

I've learned a lot from this course although it took time for me to finish it because there is so much information presented in this course. Asra has a talent for teaching. She gives a very detailed explanation of all the topics and will show you the step by step procedure to make sure you understand everything. Thanks and more power to you!
As a starter without having much knowledge, it was very difficult for me to completely grasp the idea of how these freelancing platforms work and what is the right way for starting a freelancing career. This course has given me a lot of knowledge and confidence that i have started freelancing on fiverr a month ago and it is actually going pretty good, and yeah i also earned $15 too. 😃
Great course. Easy to understand, perfect pace and fun to learn! I loved how the instructor gives examples at times showing the mistakes beginners usually do, cause I think I would've made them myself.
This is a great course with a lot of practical information for anyone who wants to work as a freelancer. Asra explained everything in detail without making you feel tired or overwhelmed. Recommended!
Asra has prepared an in depth course based off her real life experiences. This gives her students valuable practice and information about how to adapt in a competitive market.
What a great course!!!, The best part of this course is the live session and question answer. She has good communication and the tipping points are superb it helps me a lot to build my freelance career and I actually got a good contract in my domain.
