Fresh Britches – Upgrade Renegade Says Hello World!

As you all know, when WordPress installs you get a free blog post! While it’s a kind gesture, “Welcome to WordPress. This is your first post. Edit or delete it, then start blogging!” just doesn’t make for eye-popping content, now does it?

Fresh Britches!

Now, that’s a great first post title and Uprgrade Renegade is all about fresh britches, clean socks, and a nice  high’n tight haircut.

Here at we’re all about revealing the behind the scenes of success in business with real (read, practical and actionable) advice, guidance, systems and processes.

Upgrade Renegade Provides:
Boots on the ground business intel you can use to win clients and grow your business.

We are the only battle tested solopreneur training team on the web.  Which means, we’ve got real folks, running real businesses, serving real clients that are in the web consulting business.

This is not a blog about blogging.

This is an insider’s blog to other web consulting professionals.  This is the place where pro’s get more in-depth information and where new-to-the-business solopreneurs get the fast-track on the stuff that works and builds business.

So, even though we are still getting our troops assembled, expect great things.

Signup to UNIT 51 and be the first to receive private access to business building tools and information.

Yes, that’s a fluff statement, but we don’t want to over-hype this.

You absolutely can expect to see information on proposal writing (did you know there is a wrong way and a right way to do proposals?) and how to sort out your own business development process and of course a lot information about how you can do a better job (as in tools, info, guides) to represent real value to your clients and prospective clients.  As in, you’ll look more attractive to the customers you want.

The truth about all the crap out there:

So much of it is stuck in an echo chamber and too many people have drank the kool-aid on how to get rich quick online.

Things in the echo chamber continue to regurgitate across other blogs.

While some of this is ok, maybe even great, the truth is many of these folks have mastered the art of headlines and leadgen bait but haven’t actually conducted a client needs assessment, presented a $100,000 proposal for web services or connected a team of disparate freelancers to provide one complete service to a client they represent.

Upgrade Renegade intends to dig into what it takes to run a professional web business. Not just repeat what it takes to run a great blog or generate oodles of traffic.

UNIT 51 is about business building tools, equipping yourself for success and actually building your business. So, signup to that list. It won’t matter if you’re just getting started in the business or if you are a seasoned professional, you’ll both beneft.

Is it ok if we care about you?

That’s the question.  So long as we can care about you, you’ll be able to grow with the information we have to give.  You’ll also be able to tell us what’s got you stuck and we’ll try to address that too.

Join the UNIT 51 list right now.
