Be a lean, green, money making machine

If that sounds pretty farfetched to you, then you’d benefit from going through all the Freakishly Profitable training. We’d like to show you what’s possible and help you find that sweet spot.
Stop the bleeding

Planning & Sales
It’s safe to say that most web designers or developers do NOT want to be salespeople. But that doesn’t mean we can’t learn about sales, begin practicing the best stuff, and toss out all the icky, infomercial-style garbage. Let’s dive into how to you can grow your business and get new clients without greasing back your hair and wearing a polyester suit.
Don’t get “scared” off by the word hiring. We’re talking about delegating small, low-leverage tasks so that you can focus on what you do best. Perhaps it’s time for you to open your mind, let go of some control, and enjoy the benefits of having extra help.
Diversify Your Income
Imagine a one-legged monster. He’d be pretty easy to push over, right? The same is true of your business. We’ll give you lots of ideas for turning your business into an octopus. (Yeah, yeah, we’re mixing metaphors. Deal with it.)

Austin started Bright Newt back in 2009 as a creative services shop that offered copywriting, marketing strategy, branding, and SEO. But since the launch of Mustache Bash in April 2012, he has focused more on making apps for iOS and Android and app-related products. Bright Newt apps have several things in common: quirky themes, smooth functionality, and heaps of sarcasm. Austin’s hair really isn’t all that cool, but his personality makes up for it.
