I'm René

Hi there!

I’m René, and I’m the CEO & Coach at Freelance Academy!

If you’re serious about creating more freedom and abundance in your life, and you want to do this by starting your freelance career, then you’ve come to the right place!

My story and the story of Freelance Academy

My IT journey started in 2005 when I shifted from being an electrical engineer to my first job in IT.

As the years progressed, I worked for amazing companies and was even invited to work for VMware as a Senior Consultant, delivering projects throughout Europe.

Freedom has always been such an important topic in my life. When I was 18, I was already dreaming of becoming a freelancer even tho I didn’t know what it actually meant.

Nearly 10 years later, I finally took the leap from employee to freelancer.

Back then, there was no blueprint or roadmap. So I had to figure it all out by myself.

I’ve made decisions and mistakes that cost me unnecessary money and time, but I was able to crack the code and build a very successful career as an IT freelancer, making over € 200.000 a year.

And with all the freedom as a freelancer, I decided to move to Bali, where I now live in an amazing villa, living my dream life and doing all of my work remotely.

More and more people started asking me how I did this, and that’s where I came up with the idea to bring Freelance Academy to life.

To help IT professionals who want to quit their job and start their freelance careers accelerated, easy, and fun way!

I will help you with the steps before you leap, during, and after, including helping you with your first high-paid project.
