To explain exactly what it is that I’ve been up to these past few months, lemme share with you some of our results from the experiment
Mike Shreeve – Remote Freedom
If you want the freedom of Freelancing as quickly and simply as possible, here’s how…
How To Get Clients Who Pay You Monthly Recurring Income… Without Needing To Sell Yourself Online Or Do ANY Marketing
NEW METHOD: After 2 months of experimentation with a small group of willing test students, I’ve discovered a new way to get “clients” without prospecting, marketing, or doing any sales calls
If you’ve ever dreamed of living the “freelancer freedom lifestyle” but squirm at the thought of client-getting or are tired of the constant juggling of responsibilities to keep your business afloat (taxes, marketing, fulfillment, etc.)…
… or you’re struggling to find peaceful profits in your business through consistent and regular client work…
… or you’d just like to find clients who are willing to pay you the same, predictable amount of money month after month (and even offer benefits like paid time off or free healthcare)…
… I’d like to share with you a recent experiment I’ve been running (in secret) with a small group of students during which we discovered a new way to:
Create consistent (predictable) income that pays out on a regular basis… (no more feast and famine)
Requires ZERO marketing or “typical” client getting activities
Requires ZERO in upfront investment (no marketing = no need for marketing budget or other typical business costs)
Can be performed on a part-time or full-time basis (your choice)
Is perfect for people who need income FAST… (some of our experiment participants were able to secure $4k, $5k, and even $8k/month income streams in as little as 72 hours)
Is the ONLY solution that I’ve personally found for people who need additional benefits beyond JUST income (one of our participants used this method to secure top shelf health care benefits for his child while also adding multiple zeros to his monthly income)
Requires 1 – 2 weeks (on average) of Google searching for 15 minutes per day to land enough client work to book yourself solid for the next 6 – 8 months
And a bunch of other cool stuff…
To explain exactly what it is that I’ve been up to these past few months, lemme share with you some of our results from the experiment:
Why We Were Forced To Redesign
A Brand New Way To Freelance
About two months ago I put together a small group of people to beta test a new method of freelancing.
Our goal was this:
Find the easiest, most simple path for landing consistent clients WITHOUT having to do ANY marketing. Bonus points if the clients paid monthly recurring fees with long-term contracts.
The ultimate goal was to help these students do a little bit of work upfront, but then have the rest of their entire year booked in full with monthly retainer clients who signed long term contracts.
Because I’ve been doing No Pants now for 2.5 years and the #1 struggle I see with 90% of the people we work with is:
They struggle to consistently market themselves.
They’ll send a few cold emails for a few days in a row… then quit.
They’ll build an email list and email it for a few weeks… then quit.
They’ll try FB ads for a few days… then quit.
Etc. etc. etc.
They’ll get into the “Success Circle Of Pain” which goes like this:
Step 1. Work your booty off to get clients
Step 2. Land a bunch o’ clients
Step 3. Stop prospecting for more clients because you are too busy serving the clients you have
Step 4. Client projects dry up and oh-crap-I-need-rent-money
Step 5. Work your booty off even more to get clients while trying to juggle the work you have with the remaining clients from the initial burst of client getting
Again and again the cycle continues until you’re burned out and hate what you’ve built as a business.
From my vantage point as chief troublemaker here in No Pants land, I see good people failing to live the Freelance lifestyle dream all the time because of marketing.
And I get it!
Marketing is NOT natural. It’s hard. It doesn’t always work the first time. You have to go out of your way to put yourself out there to strangers.
There’s issues with confidence, self-talk, habits, procrastination, fear et. etc. etc. etc. It’s a lot to deal with all at once while also trying to perform and deliver for the clients you do get.
On a to-do list, for most people, “marketing myself to people I don’t know” is at the very bottom.
It’s like speed dating, only worse because… if you don’t impress anyone you can’t pay your rent!
So, if you’re one of the many Freelancers struggling to stay consistent and balanced with your marketing… keep reading. This whole experiment was for people just like you!
What Happened When
We Stopped Trying To Get Clients
So, our experiment was all about finding a way to get client work WITHOUT having to do all that marketing stuff.
We tried EVERYTHING we could and I’m VERY grateful for the students who were willing to go through the beta testing process (it was intense) because at the end of our little experiment here’s what happened…
Father Lands $8,500/Month Contract
And Saves His Son’s Life At The Same Time
I’ll never forget the first text that Fritz sent me, it simply said:
“I’m doing this for my son.”
What he meant was that he’d been trying to go Freelance full-time for the past 3 years but could never make the leap for one simple reason… healthcare costs were too high.
You see, Fritz’s son had a life threatening health issue which would have cost more than $3,500/month out of pocket if Fritz decided to quit his day job and lose the insurance he was receiving from his employer.
In short: Fritz wanted the flexibility and freedom to be with his son, but the cost of insurance and health bills were keeping him stuck.
So, with that in mind we made a goal to find a client (as quick as humanly possible) that would:
Pay a consistent, predictable monthly income with a guarantee of long-term work available
Provide for/pay for/supply the BEST health insurance possible so that Fritz and his family could have peace of mind regarding his son
Be flexible enough that Fritz could spend the majority of his time doing the things he’d always wanted to with his child
It was a tall order, but we managed to pull it off by tapping into a little known source of clients that I’ll tell you more about in a second.
The end result is what I’m most proud of though because:
Within just 6 days Fritz had found and talked to 4 potential clients who matched everything he’d been looking for (consistent income, insurance, flexibility)
He chose the 3rd of those 4 clients to work with and now earns $8,000+/month with this single client on a guaranteed 12 month contract
His client pays 100% of the cost for what Fritz called “the dream healthcare benefits package”
The best part of this all: Fritz is able to live a flexible life, there for his son whenever he needs him.
But Fritz wasn’t the only one….
Foster Mom Inspires Her Kids, Helps Her Husband Reduce His Working Hours, And Lands Her First Retainer Contract All In Less Than 72 Hours
Samantha first came into this experiment SUPER shy, very little confidence in herself, and almost no idea HOW she was going to make Freelancing work for her.
She was also desperate to make it work (PRO TIP: Hunger for results matters and makes a difference).
Her husband worked 60+ hours a week because they needed his overtime pay to meet their monthly bills. Why?
Because Samantha and her husband were foster parents to a growing family.
Samantha’s #1 goal was flexibility and being able to help her husband spend more time at home.
Like Fritz, she wanted consistency in income. She was already so mentally and emotionally consumed with being a successful foster parent that she just couldn’t imagine trying to balance the constant churn of new client getting. It just wasn’t an option for her.
Within 72 hours of following my advice she landed a client who has locked her in for a 6 month contract with a guaranteed weekly payout.
The best part?
It’s with a company that serves the foster parenting community. This didn’t happen by accident, we purposefully designed it into the experiment.
Her husband has since moved his weekly work week back to a more reasonable 35 hours a week and they’ve all continued to work on growing their family together.
7 Year Freelancing Veteran Gets Off The Feast & Famine Income Roller Coaster For The First Time And Raises Her Rates By 30% With Consistent Client Work
While both Samantha and Fritz were in the beginning of their Freelancing careers, I had to know whether or not these methods would work for someone more experienced.
Luckily, Sarah decided to join us in “the experiment” and bring her 7 years of full-time Freelancing experience to the table.
Here’s what happened with her:
Started the experiment making $3,000 – $4,500/month depending on how much she could hustle each month in her business (was on the road to burnout for sure)
I encouraged her to re-think what “Freelancing” actually meant and she re-tooled her entire skillset by finding “hidden gems” in her personality and background that allowed her to charge more
Within a few weeks (she was SUPER busy) she landed just ONE client who is happily paying her $6,500/month AND has offered her multiple benefits like paid time off, education stipend, and even paid travel for her and her significant other
She went from a hectic average of $4,000/month juggling multiple client projects, spending hours each week marketing herself, to a more calm $6,500/month with just one client who provides consistent work AND amazing benefits.
Curious about what it was that we “discovered” which made such a huge difference?
The Secret To “No Marketing” Client Getting Is Knowing Where To Find Clients Who Are Searching For YOU!
3 months ago, I read an article which mentioned this little morsel of insight:
The tech company Zapier pays its employees more than $10,000 to “de-locate” from their central office in San Francisco and become full-time remote workers.
Then I read in another article that:
66% of companies ALREADY have full-time remote workers on staff where they’re paying salary, benefits, taxes, and retirement to allow people to work from home
That more than 18% of companies in America right now are… 100% fully remote teams… meaning: the entire team works from home (like our team does here at The No Pants Project)
Multiple 6-figure remote working opportunities kept popping up daily.
I saw jobs for writers, designers, tech folks, managers, financial smarties, operations specialists etc. etc. etc. and on and on and on.
Basically, if it could be done through the computer, internet, or a phone… there was a high paying remote job out there from a company in desperate need for GOOD PEOPLE to fill it.
SIDENOTE: Most of the job listings I put on this page cost the company money to post. In other words: These were potential clients PAYING to tell the world that they needed help. That, as they say, is what opportunity looks like.
The conclusion I made was an obvious one:
There’s enough demand for potential work from companies trying to “go remote” that you don’t have to market yourself if you don’t want to!
In fact, you could USE remote work as a single source in more than one way as a Freelancer!
The demand for workers was there… it was just a matter of figuring out HOW to land those opportunities and make them fit within the Freelancer model.
3 Ways To Use This “Loophole” To Grow Your Freelancing Business
When most people see “Remote Work” all they hear is: “Go get a job working for someone else, but do it at home.”
Get immediately download Mike Shreeve – Remote Freedom
And that’s where most people stop, but me being me (always looking for a way to draw outside the lines), I realized that when you drill it down to it’s very essence…
… “remote jobs” and “Freelancing” were the EXACT. SAME. THING.
Companies just hadn’t figured it out yet, Freelancers didn’t think to look, and I hadn’t made the connection myself yet so I could tell YOU about it.
What that means is:
“Remote jobs” are just clients looking for help.
And with the right strategies in place, YOU could latch on to their cry for help and… wait for it… HELP THEM in the same way you might do so as a Freelancer.
It means you can still be your own boss…
You can still command high fees…
You can still do things on YOUR terms…
… as long as you have a strategy for turning that “remote job” posting into a client that works within your desires and needs.
Lemme give you some examples.
Here’s 3 ways to use “remote jobs” to grow your Freelancing business:
1. Side Income
A student who just wants some income on the side while you finish your studies
A stay-at-home parent wanting to supplement the family income but doesn’t want to work full-time hours to do it
Retired but looking for something to keep you busy and put a little bit o’ play money in the bank each month
Experiencing a health issue which keeps you from full-time hours but you’re more than willing to work flexible hours on the side to earn money
Either way, when you realize that companies hiring for “remote work” don’t care how or when you get the job done… you get to control how much or how little you work!
PLEASE NOTE: It requires a little bit of negotiation to turn most remote jobs into a side income opportunity. If you think you can just join a website that pumps out remote job listings to thousands of email subscribers… you’ll be sadly disappointed when the company rejects your application. More on this later in the letter.
2. Stable Income
I’ve said this 1,000,000 times already but it’s worth repeating:
When your income is inconsistent, you can’t help but be stressed out all the time.
Even if all you did was turn one remote job into a small, monthly recurring retainer client, that little bit of income consistency could change EVERYTHING for you. No more having to start from “zero” every month, you could cover most of your recurring bills, and you’d even be able to start putting some of that money away for a rainy day (because you know more is coming).
The most shocking thing to me about the experiment that we ran was how easy it was to turn these “remote jobs” into monthly retainers. Frankly, many of our students reported that the company was happily surprised by the methods we used to negotiate the retainer contracts.
HINT: It’s all about understanding what the company hiring for a remote position really want and then giving it to them as easy-for-them as possible.
3. Full-Time Income
This is what most people think of when they think “remote job”.
It’s working for a single company, giving yourself exclusively to serving and helping them grow their business, and getting paid a full-time salary + benefits.
To be honest, in the past I would say to AVOID this, but…
… ever since I ran the experiment and saw how much some people FLOURISHED when they didn’t have to worry about client getting, juggling multiple projects, etc…
… my opinion has changed.
For some people, this ^^^ is the best possible way for them to create peaceful profits, live a flexible lifestyle, and still get paid well.
But what’s even more important…
… I believe that this could be used a powerful stepping stone for those struggling right now financially.
Step 1. Get a full-time remote job that offers flexibility and consistent pay
Step 2. Work on growing your business on the side during the “off” hours
Step 3. When the time is right, transition from full-time “job” with that company and turn them into one of your clients in your newly established business
Either way, there’s a LOT of things you can do with the remote work revolution that you maybe hadn’t considered before. It truly is an opportunity ripe for the harvest.
As A Business Owner Of More Than 10 Years (Running 3 Separate Businesses) I Know What Gets A Business Excited to Pay Someone Well
I’ve been on both sides of the table.

I’ve also been the business owner looking to hire someone who was genuinely capable of creating results, and not just looking good on paper.
So I know what turns a hiring manager off, and what gets them excited to open up the company pocket book because I’ve hired using my own personal money more times than I can count.
I also know what makes them so desperate to hire you, the perfect person for their problem, that they’ll gladly pay you whatever you need.

This Might Be The Client Getting Solution
You’ve Been Looking For
You could be like another of the students from September’s secret experiment:
When Alma M. joined our secret experiment, she was on the verge of giving up on her freelancing dreams.
She desperately wanted to quit her job and find a positive way to support missions she cared about instead of lining a greedy corporations pockets and navigate toxic office culture.
Her biggest problem: getting herself out into the market and selling herself online.
Alma struggled with client-getting activities that forced her into put herself out there, and face the sometimes harsh rejections, criticism, and conflict that come with being visible in a space full of anonymity and zero consequences.
It paralyzed her, and she had almost resigned herself to staying stuck in the high-pressure, aggressive, and negative job she hated.
Instead, I took her current skills and repackaged them into a presentation that remote hiring companies wouldn’t be able to resist, focusing on what she wanted and needed from her work.
A few days later she landed a part-time remote job with benefits AND a mission that aligned with her passions and values.
From there she had the space and security she needed to use the skills she’d learned from the Remote Freedom process to land herself a few no-stress Freelancing gigs on the side which are now funding the downpayment savings she needs to buy a home.
She used the Remote Work Revolution to fund her business… mentally, emotionally, and financially. Peaceful profits works.
Now, she can take all the time she needs to continue building the Freelance business to whatever heights she wants – never having to work with a bad fit, take on work she hates, or market herself if she doesn’t want to.
You can quit your toxic job too, choose how much and when to work, and create space for your passions and interests by giving yourself peace of mind with consistent income and flexibility with the Remote Freedom process too.
Remote Freedom Is Completely Risk Free 30 Day Money-Back Guarantee
It took Fritz 6 days to get four dream remote work offers with amazing healthcare benefits using his current freelance skills.
It took Samantha, who believed she had no real or marketable skills at all, 72 hours.
I’m not saying you’ll achieve those same results that quickly because I don’t know what kind of work you’re willing to put into this process.
I’m giving you 30 Days to put the Remote Freedom method into action, with fool-proof daily action checklists to track and guide your progress PLUS every template, example, and worksheet you could need.
If you follow the process as I outline it, put the work in, document it in your daily checklist, and DON’T land an offer for the high-paying, flexible remote job of your choice in the next 30 days, I’ll refund every penny of your Remote Freedom purchase.
That’s a guarantee you can trust will help you reach your goal.
