About Jay

Hey, my name is Jay Clouse. I'm the founder of Unreal Collective and freelancing instructor for Linkedin Learning / Lynda.com.

I've been both a founder and a freelancer. Previously, I was the Chief Operating Officer of Tixers, which was acquired in 2015. Then I spent time as a product manager at a venture-backed startup, and left that to freelance.

I've seen what works for freelancers. And after seeing strategies work over and over again, I've put them into these courses.
