On a mission to help one million transpreneurs.

Running a translation business is challenging. Especially when you run it alone. Online distractions, shorter deadlines, high pressure levels, multitasking, uncertainty, feast and famine, you name it. My goal is to help one million translators transition from “just freelancers” to ambitious transpreneurs – and grow their one-person businesses to new heights.

about carlos djomo

A life of resilience.

I got started in translation with no diploma, owning no computer (not even a desktop) and no reliable Internet connection. In my early years, I applied to thousand translation companies, filled in countless forms and reached out to vendor managers just to collaborate with the worst clients ever. These include bottom-feeders, late-payers and non-payers (aka scammers).

Trapped in a feast-and-famine cycle, I had to regain control over my freelance activity and step it up. Upon going the small business way, I discovered more about human psychology, small-scale economics, branding essentials and marketing approaches. That’s how I 10x my revenues in just a few years. I want to share such life lessons with you, along with the frameworks I built over the years.

Experienced-based tips.

A few (good) words.
