From Undercharging and Overwhelmed 😥 to
Well Paid 💸 and Finally Free 👩🏽‍💻

I have seen it so many times…

Many people are jumping into the freelancing field not knowing what to do and undercharging their services to the point they’d need to work until they die just to pay their bills or reach six-figures to provide for their family...
Some want to quit their day jobs because they don’t like the toxic environment they’re in, the long hours, crazy commutes, the low income...
It’s not your fault. I’ve been there too...
I used to wake up every day to the landlady knocking on my door of my rented apartment asking when I'm going to pay my rent...
I was eating monggo beans for days and if I have enough, just buying 5 pieces of ensaymada in Julie’s bakeshop as my main course for the day JUST BECAUSE I had no idea how to attract good clients consistently or price my services correctly...
I quit my teaching job with no safety nets. I didn’t know where to get money after I quit. It was literally jumping off a cliff... 
In order to pay my bills, I tried to do basic graphic design for people. 
Photo plus text on it, that’s it.
I had so much self-doubt that I thought an ordinary Filipino like me cannot charge anything above the mainstream $2-$5 per hour Filipino freelancer income bracket...
I also knew my skills weren’t enough. I always thought about up-skilling, but to cover up my fear of the unknown, I would say, “I don’t have the time to learn more about my skill. I'm running out of time, I need to pay the rent!"
Then, a mentor told me to spend one hour a day with my skill, and charge MUCH higher than I was comfortable with...
Double your rates and see what happens. I bet you'll be surprised.” He said.
My desperation motivated me to try it out. I needed more money and food to eat, so I simply had to try it once to see what would happen...
I did it and.... It worked.
I raised my rate again. It worked again...
Then again. It worked, and the crazy thing is that I got MORE clients than I was getting before when I charged very low!
My clients took me more seriously.
They asked for LESS revisions, paid their invoices on time, and treated me like a respectable human being. That's something I couldn't say for my past clients who didn't pay me well...
That's when I proved MYSELF wrong and my confidence started building up, then my mindset started changing. It was me who broke my own limiting beliefs that finally allowed me to live the life of freedom and success I desired...
I now consistently make between P100k and P150k every single month with no agency, no team, just one graphic designer assistant. Ninety percent of the work is still on me, but I only work about 10-15 hours per week in order to earn that much.
That means I still have tons of time for family, friends, going the mall, going on vacations, etc. I'm not stressing myself out just to earn a good living, and you shouldn't either...
What's necessary is working "smarter" not "harder"...
I don't say this to brag. I want to INSPIRE YOU! I'm just an ordinary person, and I know that if I can do it, anyone can!
If you follow the Create & Rise Masterplan that I teach inside of Create & Rise Academy, you'll learn the exact steps and strategies I used to go from a broke and struggling freelancer to a highly paid (and very grateful) service provider.

Hey there, I will be your instructor in this program!

My name is Demi Bernice.

I used to be a graphic designer earning $2-$5 per hour or sometimes if it's a feast or famine, I accept $5 for 8 hours of work. 

I did not know that freelancing does not only take skills but also takes learning the ropes of marketing like any other business.

Eventually, by learning the best marketing strategies, I was able to charge $50 per hour and $1500-$3000 for per-project clients.

I now teach 4500 students inside Create & Rise Academy to do the same, with our finish line hitting 100k a month.

I'd confidently say 85% of my students are getting clients even if they are beginner, intermediate, or experts in the freelancing industry, following AND applying the things I teach inside the program.

In my continuing advocacy for fair pay for Filipino freelancers, I am teaching people to work less and charge more and use the advances of digital marketing to create the life they truly love.

I learned this all the hard way, and you don't have to. I created a program that can guide you every step of the way.
