ANTI-FAKE GURU POLICY

Hi, this is Margaret. Owner of Article and Design.

I've been a freelancer since 2011. I've worked with many clients from every corner of the globe. And I've built a community of leaders who are helping us in this mission and are actual freelancers, not fake gurus.

We are people that don't make their money just from selling courses. We don't sell you the idea of freelancing. We are practitioners in our fields.

From 99.9% of the people on the internet teaching you a course on how to be a freelancer, we're freelancers by profession and not coaches. The content you will find in A&D PRO isn’t theoretical knowledge. We are practitioners, not gurus.

It's nice to meet you! 👋🏼

Earnings Disclaimer

As it stands, we do not claim to be able to make you rich or make you a 6-figure digital freelancer in 3 months without any experience or portfolio.

We won't be the ones to skyrocket your success on the world stage, but we will share the wins and losses of what we’ve learnt in freelancing and online business, and what you do with that info is up to you.

You have to do your end of the bargain. Sorry, but there's no such thing as a "get-rich-quick" way. Our step-by-step courses are intended to help you improve your hard and soft skills and encourage you to take action so you can build the freelancing life you want.

Our lessons take much work and discipline, just like anything else. Please don't enroll in our courses if you believe in the “get rich quick in freelancing money” ideology.

The numbers and earnings we used here and in all our lessons are for illustrative purposes only, and we cannot guarantee the same results.

Article and Design is transparent, practical and aspirational.

We hold ourselves (and you) to a high standard of integrity.
