The New & Improved Online Course on Freelancing

That Has Sold 5300 Copies!

If you think earning 100k per month in freelancing is impossible, ask the students of Create & Rise Academy how they managed to keep on doing that month after month after month


Because if I am being honest, 100k per month is starting to become the norm in our industry. You can blame inflation and all but, I see it every single day. These people are the catalysts.


Imagine being one of them, too.



Since 2019, we have sold 5300 copies of this online course and it became best-selling yet the stories we hear are all but the same:


“I want to have a life of ultimate freedom but I do not know how to do it.”


Create & Rise Academy has turned people’s lives around by this one roadmap we call,

The Create & Rise Masterplan.

It teaches the step-by-step process on how to go from zero-to-hero in the freelancing industry. It doesn’t only teach you how to start, how to get 100k months but also how to maintain those 100k months and never look back.

There are 7 steps in the masterplan molded into 7 modules in CRA to follow this rigorous yet lucrative process in freelancing. You’ll learn:

๐Ÿš€ How to give top-notch customer service to your clients by understanding yourself first

๐Ÿš€ How to investigate and conclude what skills work best for you so you can set off and earn $$$ from it

๐Ÿš€ How to fully understand clients’ needs so you can deliver them well and gain your clients’ trust

๐Ÿš€ How to fight back against the ‘do you have an experience’ question by clients without actually having an experience (this is the pro-tip for newbies)

๐Ÿš€ How to get clients without spending a dollar on running ads

๐Ÿš€ What things to say during a negotiation call and close the client deals every single time

๐Ÿš€ How to have a system when taking in clients so that you don’t overwhelm yourself during client onboarding & maintenance

I know this is nice, awesome and all but… I have to tell you,

 CRA’s success has been very selective.

Yes, we can guarantee that the method works.
BUT, only to the people who are willing to put in the work.

Create & Rise Academy is NOT for you if:

โŒ You think you can get your first 100k months within 6 months of not doing anything, not asking questions, not opening the modules, not going out there and building genuine client relationships and not applying the lessons learned
โŒ You tend to blame other people or other things for your failures (i.e., your coach, the course, your accountability buddy, your poverty, or the world) instead of accepting that you also have your own fault in the process of failing (i.e., you haven’t done enough, you are impatient with your results, you think everything is easy)
โŒ You complain a lot and just have a plain bad attitude (we have kicked people out of the community just because of this)
โŒ You easily give up when things don’t work in 6 months when you haven’t tried looking into yourself first, “What are the things I haven’t done yet?”

This is why, if in the past, some of these manifestations have appeared in your life and are continuing to do so, I do not suggest that you enroll in CRA.


Money doesn’t come to the people who are not ready for it.

Year after year people have shown us that the “I know how to help you make 100k months” is a shiny newspaper headline, and their true colors come out because they’re only interested in the money, not in the things they need to prepare themselves for in order to receive it.

And you know you’re ready to accept blessings if:
๐Ÿ’›  You fully understand that one has to be patient in getting his/her results
๐Ÿ’› You have learned that comparison to others is never going to help you in the process of becoming successful
๐Ÿ’› You see the resources you currently have as valuable instead of always looking for something new, and hence thinking what you currently have is not enough
๐Ÿ’› You always look inwards and ask, “What are the things that I haven’t tried yet in order to make things work?”

And this is true because… here are the testimonials of the students who made it work:

It worked for them. So why wouldn’t it work for you?

And of course as someone true to her word, here are my results as well.

And here are Demi's results following the same EXACT blueprint...

From Undercharging and Overwhelmed ๐Ÿ˜ฅ to
Well Paid ๐Ÿ’ธ and Finally Free ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿฝ‍๐Ÿ’ป

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... 

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...

We are a community bonded by the same advocacy, and that's what makes us strong…


 Inside Create and Rise Academy, you are not only getting the module lessons, but you're getting lifelong friends through our strongly bonded community. Because of our similar advocacy of fair pay for Filipino freelancers, we continuously lift each other up. We celebrate each other's wins, get inspired by them and that fuels us to keep on moving forward, despite how difficult it could get.

Your Mentor....

Hi, my name is Demi!


I have taught an audience of 150,000 people across my social media channels how to use digital marketing to create financial freedom and create a life that you love.

I was once like you, trying to figure things out because all I ever wanted was to quit my Kindergarten teaching job and write books. Fast forward to today, I haven’t been writing books still (because I figured it’s not I really wanted to do) but I have been living the life that I love because I went from teaching in the four corners of my classroom to freelancing and serving clients from UK, Australia, US & Canada to now coaching people how to freelance, create online courses & basically just taking advantage of digital marketing to make our lives better.

It’s freaking amazing to now live the life that you want but it wasn’t always rainbows & butterflies. I had to cry, fall down, reach rock bottom multiple times just to try & figure things out.

Now, you don’t have to. I have created this program to guide you every step of the way.
