How to start a freelance web design business, get your first paying clients and live life on your own terms.
Before you start any project, get a deposit. It could be 25%, 50%, or a flat fee — depending on the project. That’s a rule. Make that your policy. Clients who won’t pay you a deposit are going to be a pain in the ass later. That’s step 1 to ensuring you get paid. Once […]
If you’d have told me 5 years ago that I would be supporting my family of four as a freelance web developer running an online business, I would have thought you were crazy. Yet here I am, making an honest living from my online business, supporting my family on a single income, and experiencing a rich life of freedom I never knew was possible.
I’m not a popular blogger or a YouTube celebrity, I don’t have the online impact of Tim Ferris nor do I have leagues of followers like Pat Flynn. I am Brad Hussey, a regular 27 year old father & husband from Canada. I’m a freelance web developer and I teach designers & coders — who are sick of the 9-to-5 and building someone else’s legacy — to start their own successful freelancing businesses, carve their place in the world, and live a rich life of freedom and passion.
Are you tired of building somebody else’s business?
Do you dream of getting paid to do something you love?
Do you desire to experience life and work on your own terms?
Do you love the idea of working from anywhere, at anytime?
Do you want to provide for your family without ever having to leave them for work?
Are you the hero of your own story?
Join me on the journey and let’s carve out the path you were meant to walk.

For me this was outstanding course! I just like the way how Bradd explain things, he is so neat and detailed. If I should describe this course with one word, it would be EXCELLENT! If someone expects to be a master of PHP after this course, than he is wrong. Like the title says, “Master the Basics” which means u are going to learn basics. But we all need to start from somewhere, right? Now I am able to create my first portfolio website by myself, finally. So, the conclusion is, EXCELLENT course for the starters in this area. Thank you Bradd!!!Dusan, Student of Practical PHP
By far the best course I’ve taken on Udemy. Stellar instructor. Great content. Valuable skills learned. Thanks so much, Brad! The hard work you put in designing and making the course is evident. I love how smoothly it flowed from one topic to the next without any hiccups. Very clear instructions and heaps of awesome tips. You rock!Penny, Student of Bootstrap to WordPress
Really great course and so easy to follow. Brad does an amazing job instructing and makes the code very understandable. When I made it a few lectures into the MySQL section I was nearly cheering because it all kind of came together for me, being a former DBA. I was totally geeking out XD But I was more excited that I now have a foundation for a very valuable skillset. And with practice I’m only going to become better and more efficient. I highly recommend this course to anyone looking to become a web dev 😀Gabe, Student of Ultimate Web Developer Course
Thank God for this course! While spending time doing self guided learning is also important, having had strong mentorship to assist me with learning the basics and best practices will save me from hours, days, and years of struggle down the road in my development career. The course is challenging, efficient, and entertaining enough. It’s already proving to be an invaluable part of my launch into a new career.Chris, Student of Ultimate Web Developer Course
Brad, your holistic life and productivity advice has helped me cope with terminal cancer, and yet cultivate a better personal family life. Oh yeah, helped me with confidence, useful systems and essential tools to progress towards developing once again. I’m helping to grow a business and now feel useful again.Richard, Student of Brad's Freelance Course
Before I started learning from your courses I had very little confidence I would be successful in web development any time soon. Your courses helped me advance quickly and learn the important things that really got the ball rolling for my career. Now just a couple months, or more, after starting your courses I am working for an amazing web development company and having so much fun! Thanks to you and your courses I am now [a Junior Web Developer at Mostly Serious]. Thank you so much for helping achieve goals in my career I never really thought I could.Mat S., Junior Developer @ mostlyserious.io
Love learning from this guy.. so professional, so easy to follow and understand and he teaches with a practical approach, makes no assumptions of the abilities and skills of the learner.Matt, Student of PSD to HTML5 & CSS3
I am big fan of Brad Hussey courses. The flow of his lectures are helpful for beginners as well as for expert level people. I like information and resources he deliver at every lecture/course. Great Job!!Priya, Student of Practical PHP
Brad Hussey is the best online web development instructor I have found. He is easy to understand, teaches in a way where people learn the content as opposed to just copying it and is easy to listen to.Jacob, Student of Practical PHP
Brad is one of my favorite underrated entrepreneurs because he works so hard and creates amazing content.Trevor Fenner, Founder of Fenner Supply Co.
Second course I’ve taken by Brad. His teaching style and course information are both excellent. Wish all instructors taught like Brad.Ed, Student of Bootstrap Basics
This is the best course I have ever done. Well explained and I have learned soooo much! Brad I love your way of teaching and the great care you have taken in explaining everything. I never felt ‘lost’ and have followed the whole course with ease. I will definitely follow up with another one of your courses. Thank you so much. Wilma 🙂Wilma, Student of Build Websites from Scratch with HTML & CSS
I started taking these classes at midnight and I couldn’t stop. The teacher is very engaging and teaches you a lot in each lecture even if it is a 1-2 min lecture. The “Get Your Hands Dirty” part gets you to understand your progress from the beginning. I strongly recommend you take these classes simply because it teaches you a lot even if you are a complete beginner and it is not boring (very interesting.)Jacob, Student of Build Websites from Scratch with HTML & CSS
Brad gets right to it and methodically brings the newbie up to speed with the basics of HTML5 and CSS with a touch of dry wit and oodles of experience. For someone who’s just starting out and doesn’t know where to begin, Brad is a godsend. Love the course, keep doing what you do!Caleb, Student of Build Websites from Scratch with HTML & CSS
One of the best teacher on Udemy. I really needed a refresher and this course completely did the job. I even learned a couple of things! Thanks Brad and keep the good work going!Maxime, Student of Build Websites from Scratch with HTML & CSS
Engaging course with a lot to learn. Brilliant resources, entertaining and skill-full teacher. I have finished the course with a great foundation in html and some advances techniques which will allow me to produce my own websites in the near future. Thanks Brad.Andy, Student of Build Websites from Scratch with HTML & CSS
This is my second course with Brad and I’m currently taking a third. His courses are very well designed and structured. You will learn a lot from Brad and have fun at the same time!Christine, Student of Build Websites from Scratch with HTML & CSS
Your course exceeded my expectations! Thanks for your e-mail help in the beginning! Your teaching style, explanations, and hands on process completely immersed me into action. It kept me from getting frustrated and helped my understanding immensely! You made it fun to follow and easy to find mistakes and correct them as we went!!! Excellent in every way Brad!Susan, Student of Build Websites from Scratch with HTML & CSS
Always please with Brad’s courses. I have taken all but one course that he has to offer (but that one is surely next!!) and all I can say is THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU Brad!!! All of your courses are amazing and I hope that everyone looking to advance in Web design and development will some how stumble on your courses like I did. I HIGHLY recommend any courses from Brad. He will teach you what you need to know without putting you to sleep!!!Breana, Student of Bootstrap to WordPress
…The ‘Ultimate Web Designer and Developer Course’ is exactly what I needed. I am trying to re-train and do something different with my life. This course has helped me learn so much and set out on my journey. Every time I’ve asked Brad a question, he’s come back to me with a good solid response every time as soon as he can (he’s a busy man I think). All in all, if you want to learn to code a site or you want to get into web development as a career. I’d recommend starting here.Robert, Student of Ultimate Web Developer Course
Brad produced very professional material for our campaign – both for our website and our electronic marketing pieces. The feedback we have received has been excellent.Carla Tadla, Student of
I have just returned from a recording session spent with Brad Hussey, and highly recommend him for any position in the music industry.
During my recording session, Brad produced, directed and recorded a single track for me, as a surprise gift for my family member.
When I inquired regarding my “surprise song”, Brad assured me he could learn any song on guitar and play the track to accompany my vocals. As an amateur vocalist, my nerves where soon tempered as Brad encouraged me through the song and made suggestions on how I could improve my performance, in a kind and respectful manner.
Brad has the unique ability to put people at ease and create a high level of comfort and calm without being judgmental, highly critical or condescending. Brad uses his talent for music and strong editing skills to the best advantage of all involved in any music project.Michelle Binkley, Student of
Brad came on as a summer intern in 2010 and did a fantastic job above our expectations with a new company logo, audio/video productions as well as great web designs. Brad is hard working, well organized and reliable, and easy to work with to boot! We still have him work for us even through he has returned to school full-time.Len Layton, Student of
Brad has provided our clinic with an excellent web presence. He listened to our requests and was able to incorporate them into creating the site we had envisioned. I found Brad to be highly organized, hard working and very willing to answer our questions.Paul Fleming, Student of
