I hesitated for years on signing up to the Freelancer Bootcamp course and my only regret is not doing it sooner. I was always putting it off thinking I could never do it, I do not have the skills and if you too are thinking this please stop and take the leap now. You will not regret it. The support from the minute you join the course is there and you are supported throughout the whole process. Having your 1:1 catchups with the team and your team calls meant you not only got the support but also the inspiration and encouragement from your peers. I could never have brought to life without the help of Steph, Kristina and Alanna.

There naturally is tough days filled with frustration and creative blocks but it is the determination and support that gets you through and the results were always far greater than I ever imagined.

Karyn Clohessy

I completed the Flexi Freelancer Course which was amazing to be able to work around my schedule at the time. Even though we had less calls, the content is very easy to follow & the 1:1 coaching calls were so beneficial so there was never an issue. Steph is such a great teacher & has an incredible talent for explaining complex concepts in a simple and understandable way. The main bonus for me is the ongoing support you receive even after you complete the course, especially during the early stages of freelancing when lots of questions pop up, Steph is always such a great help. I have already completed my first client site & have more in the pipeline. I am so happy to have launched Strive Digital! (link to

Investing in the Extended Freelancer Bootcamp completely changed my life! I am so glad I decided to take the leap and sign up for the course. I never thought I would learn how to design & create a website in just 12 weeks, but the passion and devotion Steph & Kristina have is just phenomenal! The main reason I chose to do this programme was that there was so much support attached. Firstly, I am someone who needs accountability & guidance. Secondly, they also provide you with the tools to set up your freelancer business and make a success of it! It has been so empowering, and since graduating, my business has continued to grow and develop. Thank you for everything!

Kate O'Callaghan-Gapsa

I had thought about doing the Freelancer Bootcamp course for ages before actually signing up, I’m so glad I did! The weekly calls and huddles/1:1’s were really good for keeping me focused and on track, especially on the days I thought I would never be able to build a website. Steph, Kristina and Alana were always really supportive and never made me feel my questions were silly – plenty of them definitely were. As well as the course and the coaches I felt like I learned from everyone else in the group who asked things I hadn’t thought of or the things I had but didn’t want to say.
It’s still crazy to believe I learned a whole new language in the 12 week course and was able to build if you are on the fence about doing the course I would say go for it, you won’t regret the investment.

Joanne Jackson

I thoroughly enjoyed the freelancer bootcamp course. It has always been a dream of mine to start my own business and never thought this was achievable until I started the freelancer bootcamp, where I launched my own website in 9 weeks –
The format of the course is very manageable and achievable with project submissions every Friday. The support from Steph, Kristina and Alanna was brilliant, any question or query I had was answered without any hesitation. I would highly recommend this course to anyone.

Laura O Shea

Steph’s Freelancer Bootcamp had been on my radar for a while, and the course completely surpassed my expectations. The course content was challenging and interesting, and the extended bootcamp was still manageable alongside other work and life commitments. The level of support we got from Steph and Kristina was phenomenal, and the mix of group calls, huddles and 1:1s were great. Steph really fosters a supportive and helpful environment for all the students – cheering each other on on launch day was one of my highlights – and it’s fantastic to be part of the grad community now too. I’m so proud of the website I made for our company Good Egg Digital Marketing ( If it’s something you’ve been thinking about – get signed up! You won’t regret it.

Holly Close

I found the whole experience of the Freelancer bootcamp to be a fantastic one. I completed the extended course alongside working a busy 9-5 job and managed to complete the course and launch my very own website – Nova Web Design! The course was a real eye opener for me by showing me the endless possibilities there are available to you when you work as a web developer. Steph and Kristina were so motivating and helpful and both so passionate about what they do. When I was worried about making the launch deadline due to life getting in the way, I was met with reassurance and encouragement and was allowed to launch with a group after me no problem. Would recommend this course to anyone.

Tara Keady

I signed up for the Extended Freelancer Bootcamp and it was a challenging but really fun experience! Steph and Kristina are super coaches and were so helpful and motivating throughout the whole process. The 1:1 calls and group huddles were very beneficial, and it was nice hear from other people who were doing the course at the same time as me. I learned so much from the course and designing and creating my own website I would recommend the course to anyone who is thinking about doing it – it is great value for money!

Niamh Bennett

I completed the extended freelancer bootcamp and I am so happy I did! In 12 weeks, I have learned a whole new set of skills, have built my own website, and I am excited to start my freelance journey. The highlight of the course for me was our weekly group huddles and 1-2-1 coaching calls. Steph and Kristina are passionate about what they do, and they really support and encourage you every step of the way. This course has opened up so many possibilities and I finally get to live the life I have been dreaming of!

Rebecca Youdell

What can I say, this Bootcamp and Steph are so fab! I completed the extended course, and honestly it was amazing. I learnt so much in such a short space of time, but I am still learning by being part of Steph’s community and all the continued support she offers after the programme. I have wanted to be self-employed for the longest time, and this course gave me the accountability I needed to get my own business launched, as well as a network of like-minded people. I would encourage anyone considering this course to just do it, you absolutely will not regret it. Steph is an excellent teacher, she has created an amazing business and it is so evident that she is extremely passionate about what she does. She cares for each of her students individually and their progress, which is remarkable given the amount of people that have now gone through her programmes. Thank you so much Steph for all the encouragement and time you gave me personally! Excited for the future! Demand Digital | Be in Demand.

Siobhán MacCourt

I completed the accelerated freelancer bootcamp after thinking about it for some time and I am so glad I did. I had zero experience in web development but from start to finish I felt supported by Steph and Kristina. There were definitely times of imposter syndrome and I still feel that today but the community of coaches and graduates are only a message away if I need any help or advice. The course is easy to follow and has tons of information, so pretty much everything you need to know is somewhere in the course. The accelerated course is fast paced but if you work well under pressure then it is totally achievable. I created my website in just 5 weeks through practical learning, which suited me perfectly. I would highly recommend the course!

Aisling Egan

Investing in the Freelancer Bootcamp is definitely the right choice! If you’re thinking about doing it, go for it! I started the course with absolutely no experience in Web Development so was understandably nervous starting out. The structure of the course is set out so that each week you focus on a different topic and this makes it manageable to work through. There are definitely some weeks which are harder than others but Steph and Kristina are always on hand to support you. Completing this course has given me the confidence that I never thought I would have to start my own business and I’m very proud of the website I built during the course:

Imogen Scutt

After being on my radar for a while, I finally bit the bullet and signed up for the Extended Freelancer course last year. Since I was in a completely different timezone, I was worried about how I would take part in the weekly calls. But Steph was really accommodating, and she was generous with her time; I learnt so much during those calls.

Steph, Kristina and the rest of the course group were very encouraging, which is great when imposter syndrome inevitably kicks in. The course covers many different topics related to building a business and working as a freelancer. And from a technical point-of-view, the progress from the first week to launch day is amazing.

I’m so proud of the website I created – – and would highly recommend the course.

Aishling Browne

I completed in the accelerated Freelancer Bootcamp and it was one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself. It was such a fun and interesting learning experience that I would recommend to anyone interested in learning web development. Steph and her team were excellent at making you feel supported and encouraged every step of the way and are so incredibly knowledgeable at what they teach that they make it easy to learn. As a person who tends to work best under pressure, I found the accelerated bootcamp the perfect mix of urgency and excitement to really help me engage best and create the best website I could!

Gillian Quirke

The Freelancer Bootcamp was such a great investment! I did the course with no knowledge of web design whatsoever and I was so nervous to start but honestly, the course material that you have access to and the access you have to Steph and the team is just invaluable. The support you receive throughout (and after) the course is fab too and it makes the whole experience of learning something completely new so enjoyable. Rather than making myself a website on the course, I did one for a client (which I got through the bootcamp) and I think it was great as it gave me that experience of working with someone. I can now use that knowledge and experience to create my own website:

Hayley Tomlinson

I absolutely loved my experience in this course. I learned so much over the few weeks and am so proud of my finished product. It’s always challenging to try and learn a new skill but both Steph and Kristina were so good at explaining things in an understandable way. They never made me feel like I was asking a silly question or like I was taking up too much of their time I also loved all the value given in the freelancing and business side of starting your own business, which is why this course is different to the rest. So happy to have launched

Aimee Duffy

Signing up for the Freelancer Bootcamp was one of the best things I’ve ever done, I genuinely enjoyed every minute of it! Yes, it was stressful at times as you learn so much in the 8/12 weeks and working a full time job at the same time wasn’t easy but Steph and Kristina give such a huge level of support and help you every step of the way. I created a client website on the course which was a success and in the last few months I have created my own website: another client website, and I have 2 new clients booked in for later this year – all while working full-time. Not only does this course teach you how to develop websites, it teaches you how to be a freelancer and how to get clients – I couldn’t recommend it enough if you think website development could be for you!

Shauna Foley

Being a part of the Freelancer Bootcamp was amazing. Steph and Kristina are amazing coaches and I’ve come away from the course feeling confident and ready to take the leap into the developer world. The course is well thought out and organised. It’s definitely tough, learning a new skill from scratch is daunting but with this course, you feel so at ease. I managed to learn a new skill and set up my own website: in just 8 weeks! Would highly recommend this course to anyone looking to get into web development.

Robyn Lucioni

The Accelerated Freelancer Bootcamp was an extremely challenging and rewarding experience. I signed up last minute for this course and really enjoyed being thrown right in the deep end. After 5 weeks I was so proud to have launched While you learn the technical aspects of web design, the real value in this bootcamp comes from learning how to run a business, manage clients and believe in yourself. I have grown so much from completing this course and from Steph and Kristina’s support throughout. I have learned skills I can apply to almost every aspect of my life. If you’re looking to push your self and are thinking about signing up, take this as your sign! You won’t look back.

Vanessa Monahan

Hands down the best thing I ever did for myself! This course has brought so many opportunities and has completely changed the trajectory of my career. I am now running Jeune Digital from Perth, Australia and I can work with clients confidently thanks to the skills I have learned from Steph.

Eimear Morris

If you have been thinking about doing the course – do it! It really is such a great investment in yourself! I have gone from having no web design knowledge to building a website for a client in just 12 weeks The course also teaches much more than just web design, I learned so much about strategy, working with clients etc. It is a lot of work but the lesson content was structured and laid out very clearly so you could manage your time as you needed. The one to one calls with Steph & Kristina were excellent and any question no matter how big or small were always answered. I am delighted with my first client website and I am now in the process of building my own site with some other projects in the pipeline.

Caroline Murphy

The bootcamp was brilliant. Learning a new skill with so much potential to change your life in less than 12 weeks is amazing. It is intense and with working 9 to 5 at the same time, there were points that I thought I wouldn’t do it. However, the support from Kristina and Steph certainly made me keep going and I’m so glad I did. I used the course as a an excuse to work on a client site and they were so pleased with the outcome, as was I. I built things I never thought I’d able to do after 12 week on : and it’s certainly going to make it easier for them to run their business.

Katie Aldridge

Learning website development with Stephmylife bootcamps for me was amazing. I had tried other online courses before but none were like Steph’s course. The detailed course work is laid out step by step and both Steph and Kristina are on hand throughout to guiding you through the sticky bits. I’m so pleased and proud to have completed the course and launched my own Web Design business: I highly recommend anyone thinking about doing the course to go for it. You won’t regret it!

Stephanie Foley

I have been interested in web design for quite some time and finally took the plunge and signed up to the Freelancer Bootcamp towards the end of lockdown. I think the pandemic reminded many of us that there is a new way of working and that the opportunities to work online are endless. I had very little experience with web design before enrolling on the course and found it very manageable. It was challenging at times but the way Steph, Kristina and the girls in our group supported each other made it feel like we could accomplish anything. During the course I created a personal portfolio website for my web development business ‘Optimising Online’ and was so proud of what I had created! Steph is one of the most knowledgable people I have ever learned from and to me she defines a new age entrepreneur that believes in working smarter not harder and that anything is possible. She helps you to realise that your wildest dreams are not as far away as you might have once thought! I learned so much during the course and am so excited about the lifestyle that I can create for myself and what the future holds for Optimising Online. The community that you become apart of by completing the Freelancer Bootcamp is special! I have connected with so many like minded women that empower each other! The help and support that you receive from Steph, Kristina and the other women is incredible! I made the course fee back within 3 months of completing the course. I couldn’t recommend the course enough to anyone who is looking for more freedom and who would like to work on their own terms!

Aoife Stanton

Steph put a lot of thought and effort in to the course and it shows. The course content was well laid out and easy to understand. It made learning easy and was structured in a way that made building a website easy. I found the calls so beneficial – from group calls to huddles and 1:1, they really made the course feel more personal rather than just a load of slides. I went from having zero web design knowledge to building my own website: and getting my first client before even finishing the course! Really happy I made the investment in myself and completed this course!

Nikita Ryan

Great! The boot camp was exactly what I needed to get started on something I had thought about doing for a long time. It made me accountable and each of the steps were easy to follow and well explained. All the help Steph and Kristina gave was great and they really made an effort to give a hand. I was able to set up a website for my local GAA club and have since got a client creating and a few other things in the pipeline so this has been so beneficial to me!

Peadar McVeigh

First of all, I couldn’t recommend this course enough. I was shocked at what I managed to achieve and learn in the space of 12 weeks while still working my full time job. But that just goes to show just what an incredible course Steph has managed to put together. It is both intensive but broken down so well that it is extremely manageable. Hard work? – Hell ya!, you are learning a new language after all, but if you want it, all the tools are there for you to achieve it. The support and encouragement from Steph and Kristina was incredible. Always came off their calls like I could take over the world. lol.
I had been following Steph for a years and had always revered her work/travel lifestyle but never imagined it could ever happen for me. As the years my personal circumstances changed and it became apparent I would need more flexibility in working location so I had to ask myself what would give me that flexibility. I had joined the waitlist a couple of times and let spots open and close – the thought of giving up a steady job and the familiar holding me back. Then I got myself together, told myself there was never gonna be a ‘right time’, if I was going to get what I needed I was going to have to take my opportunity and make it happen, so the next time a spot came up I didn’t hesitate.
Now just a few months later I am a freelance web designer, have built my own website: that I am extremely proud of, and am starting to build my first client website.

Lyndsey McEneff

The Freelancer Bootcamp was the best investment I ever made. Steph’s drive, passion and dedication to not only her business but to her students is so inspiring and motivating – it makes you want to work 10x harder. All course modules are broken down into manageable tasks making them easy to follow, and along with Steph’s guidance no task felt impossible. Plus, she is always there to give you a pep talk when needed! This course has honestly changed my outlook and perspective on what I can achieve – I’m so thankful for this opportunity!

Rhiannon Jones

To be honest I signed up for this course not knowing exactly what my goal was! It has opened up a whole new world of opportunities for me. I love to travel and have been searching for many years about how to support myself financially while I travel! I have launched my website in January and now have the skills and confidence to build and maintain websites for others. Iv expanded my services to also include SEO and social media services.

I had no previous knowledge of website design, all the guidance and support is in the course. There is a lot of technical learning and it has been a bit of a roller coaster! I have now come out the other end and my goal is clear… to go full time freelancing! This course has given me the tools and confidence I would definitely recommend it to others wanting to become freelancers. Go for it!

Sarah MacNamara

The freelancer bootcamp was an intense and incredible experience, and I’d highly recommend it to anyone who has even a slight curiosity about building a website and getting it online. I set myself a goal last year of creating a website, and with Steph’s help I not only achieved it but exceeded it. My website – – is something I’m extremely proud of. Steph is so knowledgeable and has created a wealth of content – and continues to do so.

I finished the course over six months ago and Steph is still adding new materials that I can access and use to improve my skills. The ongoing support from other graduates is great too – its like having a big group of freelance colleagues!

Nicole Casey

My experience of the Freelancer Bootcamp was mixed. At times I found it extremely overwhelming and times I found it really enjoyable. At one point I almost dropped out as I felt I was way out of my comfort zone. At this point I communicated how I was feeling with Steph and she “thankfully” gave me a good pep talk and reassured me that I wasn’t the only person feeling like this and that she had graduates in the past who felt exactly the same as me. This gave me the confidence to push through the course and I am so happy I did! I finished the course before Christmas 2021 and quit my full-time job.

Today I am sitting in my home office working for myself and it is the greatest feeling on earth. I can finally start doing the things I love because I am not stuck in the 9-5 rat race…..

Kim Heavin

The course was incredible! As someone with no tech background, the course is packed with information that you need to become a freelance web developer but is easy to understand. The pre coursework was really useful in getting to grips with the coding required. I completed the course when working full time in the nhs at the beginning of the pandemic and was also pregnant so I struggled with the workload. I am so glad there is now an extended course to help with situations like this. It took me awhile to finish after the course ended but Steph was really supportive and helpful.

I couldn’t have asked for better. Seeing all the new features she is adding to the course and the continued support,it is great value for money.

Emma Price

The freelancer bootcamp was an incredible course. Everything was planned out so well from start to finish. The course covered a range of topics from CSS to pitching to new potential clients. The support from Steph and the girls was so much more than I expected. They had no problem scheduling extra calls if you needed it. I can’t thank Steph and the girls enough for their hard work and dedication. This course is 100% worth the investment.

Aoife Connolly

Completing the Freelancer Bootcamp has changed my life. I found a love for tech that I never knew I had. Steph and Kristina are amazing and provide so much support throughout the course.

It was the best investment I have ever made for myself and my career, and I am so proud of the website and business I made.

Laura Mckeown

I am honestly so happy I decided to invest in me and my career with this course. I learnt more than I could’ve ever imagined in 8 weeks. The first 4 weeks of the course focuses on web design and building your website: which sounds daunting especially with having no previous web design experience, however Steph and Kristina were on hand throughout the course, supporting with any quetsions, issues or challenges you have. After the course, there’s continuous support from Steph and past course graduates, so you have a community there supporting you, which is a lovely bonus after finishing the course!

This course has opened up a whole new world of possibilities and I cannot thank Steph enough for that!! I have already recommended this course to friends and family – I can’t recommend it enough!

Blaithin McAdam

I really enjoyed the Steph My Life Freelancer course! It was 5+ weeks of hard work which reaped rewards throughout. The course itself was a great insight into the freelancing world and was paired from amazing guidance from Steph and Kristina. Every week I was given new tasks to complete with support and materials provided by Steph. Motivation and encouragement were never from reach with being added to a groups which served as a super system.

Overall, I 100% recommend this course. It is not just about feeding you information; it allows you to independently gain and grow your skills to give you the confidence to apply what you’ve learnt in the real world! You also end up with an amazing looking website. Check out the one I’ve created:

Chloé Lusandu

I couldn’t recommend the Freelancer Bootcamp Course enough, or imagine another web development course that gives you everything this does. The course gives you absolutely everything you need to start your freelancing career, and more. As well as great course content, you can also stay connected to Steph and other graduates long after the course finishes to receive any help you need or any question answered. Your return on investment is 10 fold.

If you’ve been looking for a change, this could be it for you!

Jenny Whelan

I was extremely lucky enough to have got the scholarship for this course, I am forever grateful to Steph for it. All the reviews you read about Steph’s courses are legit – the course is by no means easy, I would go as far to say it was quite tough and a lot of work, but its totally worth it. It can actually change your course in life in a matter of months. I have learned so much, a whole new set of skills, built my own web development business and website and have not looked back since.

If you are thinking about signing up, don’t hesitate and just do it today, you wont regret it at the end of the 8 weeks when your website is complete and you are officially a Web Developer. Steph & Kristina are amazing, the course is so well put together and the support is fantastic.

Maura O'Reilly

The freelance bootcamp is one of the best learning experiences I’ve ever had! Steph’s course teaches you everything from building a website, social media and how to become a full time freelancer. The support throughout those weeks helped me build confidence and the skills to take the next step into freelance life.

If you are thinking about doing one of Steph’s courses I encourage you to sign up immediately, it will change your life!

Meghan McGrath

The freelancer bootcamp is the best investment I have ever made in myself. It was so thorough and Steph and Kristina were so helpful throughout. It’s an absolute crash course in all things web development and as a total beginner I can’t believe the amount of detail, support and information given to us throughout the course.

I started with no prior knowledge of web development and 8 weeks later I have a site: and multiple prospective clients. It’s so hard to believe that in such a short number of weeks I have gained so much knowledge and a whole new exciting skill set. I can’t recommend the course enough!

Niamh Houlihan

The Accelerated Freelancer Bootcamp is literally the best decision I have ever made. Not only did I learn a LOT of technical knowledge, I also changed my mindset completely. I started this course as a student, and I’m finishing it – only 8 weeks later – as a CEO of my own web development & digital strategy business. I couldn’t be prouder of myself, and more excited of what is next to come.

I got my first client for a website development contract and the course had not even fully ended yet! Steph and Kristina are so helpful, patient and professional, and I want to thank them so much for changing my life and giving me the confidence to take the leap and start this new adventure as a freelancer.

If you’re not sure whether or not to invest in this course… stop hesitating. DO IT! It’s definitely challenging, hard at times, but if I’ve done it, you can do it too! I am now taking bookings for web development, redesign & maintenance, website translation & social media management. I work mainly with tourism & wellness professionals. You can check out my website built during the course below!

Tina Duarte-Monteiro

This was honestly the best decision I have ever made for my future! For some online courses you pay, get a workbook of basic information and instructions and that’s all you get. This is so different in so many ways.

The course itself is brilliant and really well put together, with in-depth explanations and links to outside sites to read further, plus guidance for everything you need for your business. It’s updated with new lessons when something arises that would affect all sites, or there’s a new update so you’re never falling behind.

I found the aspects of the course centred on freelancing, pitching to clients etc so valuable and I would’ve been absolutely lost without it!
The focus on support throughout the course is also amazing.
Steph and Kristina were on hand throughout the entire 8 week period. From group coaching calls to 1-1 check-ins – every week there was a way to stay accountable, learn something new and check in on progress. Not to forget they were there pretty much any time of day to respond to messages on Slack or email.

I truly gained so much value from this course beyond the technical web development tasks, and I’d recommend it to anyone looking to take the leap!

Naomi Brash

This was honestly the best investment I’ve made in myself. I’ve wanted to work where I didn’t have a specific location and also wanted to be my own boss. I’ve reached that goal through this course. Steph breaks the course down into steps that anybody can follow, even a newbie like me. The support was great, a reward should be given to Steph and Kristina for their patience in helping me create my first website. I’m so glad I did this and would encourage anybody to do the same if you want out of the 9-5 rat race like me!

Tracey Comerford

I completed the Freelancer Extended Bootcamp, and I genuinely loved every single minute of it! The initial nerves and self-doubt wondering if I’d actually be able to do the coursework and create my own website were immediately eased when the course started as the coursework is so clearly laid out and easy to follow. On top of that, Steph provides the most amazing technical and motivational support and encouragement throughout the course.

This bootcamp is more than just learning how to develop a website. After completing the course, I can honestly say I felt confident and prepared to pitch to and work with clients, and most importantly to sell myself as a Freelance Web Developer. I’ve already developed two client websites: & since completing the course just over 3 months ago and I’m so excited for all the opportunities to come, all thanks to Steph and this bootcamp! I’m incredibly grateful for this fantastic course!

Shannon McNamee

This bootcamp turned out to be far more than I expected. The amount that you learn in such a small space of time is unbelievable. The constant support that you receive from Steph and the team throughout is second to none. I am very glad that I chose the extended freelancer camp as it gave me an extra few weeks to develop my skills. It is a very challenging course but it is also so rewarding and one of the best decisions I have made was to invest in it.

Clare O'Gorman

Steph is an amazing teacher, she is so helpful and motivates all of her students to reach their full potential! I thoroughly enjoyed the course and I have learned so much new skills and gained a lot of confidence! I completed my website on the course with the help and guidance of Steph and Kristina! An amazing team!
The group chat on slack is amazing for ongoing support with a great community of students!

Sinead Hagan

I did the accelerated course which was a total of 8 weeks. The course was everything that I had hoped it would be. It was extremely challenging at times but this is what made it so rewarding!. Overcoming the challenges and tough topics on the course only serves to builds your skills week in, week out.
Aside from the skills I have learned, being involved in the group amongst other like-minded women was such a great experience. The weekly 1-1 call and the group call every Saturday gave a great structure which compliments the course work. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who has an interest in breaking into the Tech world – it is an excellent stepping stone!!
I’ve left the course wanting to build on my knowledge and learn even more.

Alanna Braham

Taking part in Steph’s Freelancer Bootcamp has been an incredible experience. It still absolutely amazes me how much you can learn in such a short period of time. It’s so rewarding to know I built in 5 weeks! A lot of it is to do with the level of support Steph and the team provide grads, always on hand no matter how big or small the query. It’s not just the technical side of web design you learn about, there’s also invaluable insight into what it takes to start and run your own business. The sense of freedom to be able to move from a 9 to 5 job to having complete control over what you work on is amazing! 100% recommend!

Michelle Kennedy

I absolutely loved this bootcamp! I learnt so much over the 12 weeks and Steph was so helpful and informative. I designed a website for a yoga business the website is I was able to design a responsive website with a full booking system where people could book and pay for classes, testimonials section, about section, contact, blogs and more! I couldn’t thank Steph more and I’m so excited for my journey as a freelancer!

Amy O’Neill

The freelancer bootcamp has enabled me to learn an entire new skill and has equipped me with the tools to start a whole new business – @algerdigital. To do all of that from the comfort of my own home is a testament to the quality of the course on offer!

The support from Steph was great and I still keep in touch with the other developers now. I’m so proud of the business I’ve built and I can’t wait to grow it! You can check the website I built during the course here…

Lauren Alger

I can’t put into words how amazing this course is! Not only have I launched my own website and business Elite Web Studios, but I’ve also gained an unforgettable amount of information and experience which was superbly displayed and taught to us directly from Steph’s Course work! Throughout the course we learnt everything from the ins and outs of how to create a highly functional website, I can honestly say I learnt so much more than I thought I would have. I’ve since left my full time 9-5 job to pursue my new business Elite Web Studios purely down to the absolute passion and contentment that this course has brought to me!

Rachel O'Shea

The freelancer bootcamp was one of the most challenging yet rewarding things I have done. Working in my 9-5 while doing the accelerated course was tough and required a lot of commitment but having the support and guidance from Steph really helped. Steph is a wealth of knowledge and having her support throughout the course was amazing. She was there whenever we needed her. The detail included in the course is incredible and takes you step by step from knowing nothing about web development to being able to design a website and take on clients. I started working with my first client before the course finished and I’m so excited to see where this journey with 7 West Digital takes me. I’m so glad I invested in myself and I couldn’t recommend the course enough.

Sinead Conneely

The freelancer bootcamp was honestly was one of the best investments I have every made. I signed up to this course with very little knowledge of web design with the hope of it becoming a new and exciting part of my life. Safe to say I loved every minute of being on this course. It’s amazing how quickly you can pick up the technical skills. The course materials, weekly classes and constant support from Steph is amazing.

Creating SAVANNA Web Creations is one of my proudest achievements to date, it amazing how much you can achieve from this course in such a short space of time

Charlene Frazer

I found the bootcamp very easy to follow and if I ever got stuck I had all the help I needed from various sources. I was able to practically learn how to develop websites whilst actually developing my website

Cat Stoodley

I highly recommend the freelancer bootcamp. Steph is an excellent teacher and mentor, but crucially she’s just so good at encouraging you to believe in yourself. I truly learned so much over the course, in addition to my web developer skills, thanks to her continued focus on growth. It helps to have a supportive group all learning at the same time, and the ready availability of Steph and the other mentors is key. I built my personal portfolio site during the course: and found it exhilarating as each week passed and I began to become more and more confident in my skills. I’m now working with clients on their sites, and am just so grateful to Steph for putting together such a fantastic course.

Hilary Woods

Investing in the Freelancer Bootcamp has been the best thing I’ve ever done. It has completely transformed my life, going from a dead-end 9-5 job that I hated to becoming my own boss and having complete control over all aspects of my work. Throughout the 4 weeks, Steph taught me invaluable skills to kick-start my career as a Web Dev and to this day continues to support my freelancing journey. This course has opened up a whole new career path and I can’t recommend it enough!

Michelle Kelly

The freelancer bootcamp has been amazing and I am so glad I invested in it! Steph is so knowledgeable & supporting and great to work with. Not only do you learn web design, you also learn so much more like working with clients and how to believe in yourself! I still can’t believe that I built a website in 5 weeks and now have the skills to pursue the freelancer lifestyle that I have been dreaming of – check it out at

Sarah Elattar

Completing the Steph My Life Freelancer Bootcamp is one of the best investments that I have made in myself. I am so proud of the site that I built in a very short but busy 5 weeks, which you can check out at

I couldn’t have done it without Steph! She’s a great mentor and support throughout the course and always there to reassure you.

Nadine Plummer

I honestly love the course from start to finish. Coming from a place where I did know the basics, the skills and love of coding I’ve picked up is unbelievable. What you learn is so valuable but the extra guidance and tips that are so valuable.

Jade Healy

Before the freelancer bootcamp, I had no clue about coding or anything web design related. It did take a while for it to sink in but just accelerated from there. The amount learned in such a short space of time has definitely exceeded my expectations. Everything is step by step and very well structured. Changing career in my 40s was a challenge well worth taking, and I’d advise anyone thinking about doing the same to just do it.

Starting my own business, creating a website for it and now creating websites for other businesses has given me a new lease of life, especially as I can take it anywhere with me.

Jill Hamilton

The freelancer bootcamp was so tough, but so rewarding. I can’t believe that in five weeks I went from not knowing what a plug-in was to building my very own business and designing and developing my very own website 🙂 I am so proud of myself for learning so much.

Steph has laid the course out in so much detail, it’s amazing and she is so encouraging. It’s been a great investment in my personal and professional development.

Evelina Krusinskaite

I came to Steph’s courses looking to up-skill and improve my current way of working. I was somewhat self taught when it came to web design and had a bit of knowledge of CSS, but I had some bad habits. Being on the Freelancer Bootcamp allowed me to sort out these habits and has helped me not only improve my skills in web design and CSS but also taught me how to build websites in the most efficient way. Now I’m confident I can provide great service to clients and make the process of creating their websites stress free not only for them but for myself too! I couldn’t have imagined I’d create my website (, to the quality it is in such a short space of time.

Lydia Healey

I completed the Freelancer Boot Camp in December 2020. I have to say, I loved every minute of it! Working a full time job & learning a new skill definitely got abit much at times, but Steph was always there to help me gather myself again and reset! I’m over the moon with how much I learned in such a short space of time, it’s intensive, but so worth it! Since completing the course I’ve completed another website and done maintenance on my original clients site too. Here’s the best part though, Stephs attitude towards being a Freelancer/Entrepreneur and her drive to reach for your dreams inspired me to reach for mine. I came out of the Freelancer course with a whole new skill set & the courage to start my own business. I am now a proud cafe owner and I don’t think I would have found the courage to just go for it without Stephs inspiring drive & outlook on like ( & she does all this without even meaning to) Steph is a truly amazing teacher, who gives her all to each student! Tbh I’d think she’d make a great Life Coach!

Kerri Sheridan

Joining Steph’s Freelancer bootcamp was by far the best investment I have made for myself and my future. I always hoped that I would one day ditch the 9-5 lifestyle but I was never convinced that it would actually happen. Now after completing the course Steph has instilled a confidence in us all that we can do it and it is achievable! I was a complete beginner prior to stating the course so I was nervous that I wouldn’t be able to keep up. Steph has the lessons set up in such a detailed way that you never feel overwhelmed as everything is broken down for you. The support from Steph the whole way through the course was AMAZING. She was always available to help out no matter how big or small the issue was. The support from other people on the course was also something worth mentioning and the sense of community was amazing. I found it hard to imagine that I would be able to say I created my own website and learn so many technical new skills in such a short time but I did, and you if you sign up you will also get the great sense of achievement when you see your own website. I am so glad I invested in the course and I would 100% recommend it!

Karen Keane

Best thing I ever did! Steph was so lovely and so helpful! She really inspired me to set up my own business! I set up The Creative Edge in November and would not have been able to do this without Stephs guidance and help!

Claire Enright

I am so pleased I stumbled across Steph on Instagram and subsequently found her Freelancer Bootcamp course. In the midst of lockdown 1.0 I had a good chance to reflect on life and realise my work-life balance was completely off. I was bored in my current job and had no room for progression. I needed a new challenge and I knew I wanted to take advantage of travelling again when the world opened up . Steph seemed to have this nailed, being able to earn and travel at the same time. I signed up to her free web development taster courses and thoroughly enjoyed them. The freelancer courses sell like hotcakes so I knew I had to take the plunge next time she released one, so when I got the notification in July that the October course was available I jumped at the chance! I was super excited but also nervous that I wouldn’t be able to pick things up. Our first team Zoom call put my mind to rest when I realised how much Steph puts in to the course and she couldn’t be more supportive. I don’t know where she gets all the time and energy from!! Not only that but she creates a great camaraderie amongst the rest of the group which is invaluable in making people feel like they are not alone. You will finish this course not only as an A class web developer but also with a new bunch of friends 🙂 I have gone from zero experience in this field to having now launched two websites: / and I am excited to get stuck in to work for the first time in years!!

Aimee Evripidou

I had a fantastic experience doing the freelancer boot camp! It was hard work and long hours but I never would of pushed myself this hard with out Steph and the group! So proud of my new site

Lisa Mathews

I thoroughly enjoyed the course, Steph was brilliant at providing support throughout – no matter the time of day. Not only did I learn how to build a website using WordPress during the course, by the end I felt confident in my ability to do it for others. Through this course I have created by own website: and business, from 0 to full fledged freelancer in 5 weeks!

Rebecca Moore

I can honestly say this was one of the best things that I have done in so long. I cannot recommend this course enough! Steph was just the best I’m such a sucker for documentation and videos and Steph really smashed it. It has everything I need all in one place and even now I am still able to go back in my own time. Amazing! Whenever I needed help Steph was always there to answer my questions and guide me no matter how busy I know she was. She really gives everyone 110% throughout the course. I am so proud of what I achieved in the 4 weeks with Stephs help and seeing all my hard work pay off when I launched my website was just the best feeling. Steph still continues to support us all across her social media and we have calls together too which is so nice to support each other. This is the best investment I made for myself.

Richael Fletcher

My expectations for this course were very high after seeing the quality of the work that was created by the previous groups but even still Steph surpassed these expectations.

She is absolutely amazing at teaching and is so dedicated to the course that I was often chatting to her late into the evening to fix issues.

I’m really happy that I decided to do the course and learn a new skill!

Kate O Connell

I honestly had the best experience! It was so nice to learn something new and feel part of a group whilst doing it. The coursework is so detailed and Steph was always there for support, which really sets this course apart from others and makes it well worth the money. I was a complete beginner and now have a full functioning website ( ) and all the resources to become a freelancer! I’d highly recommend it!!

Catherine Bamber

What an amazing experience! From start to finish Steph was on top of everything in the most organised, easy to follow way! The course provides a ton of material with screenshots and videos of how to complete specific tasks, Steph also teaches you how to find information, so that you are never stuck, she literally thought of everything! Always with such a positive and inspiring attitude, it’s infectious, I came off the calls super motivated each time! If you have doubts whether you will be able for it or not – don’t, I had those doubts signing up, but they vanished pretty quickly! She also shares all the information and knowledge she acquired throughout her own time of freelance which will fast-track you as you won’t have to learn all of the hardships that come with it yourself, you will be prepared for pretty much anything! She’s got incredible patience and explains things in easy, straight forward way. I got so much more from this course than I expected and met such a cool bunch of people too! Definitely one of the best decisions and if you want to learn a new skill, get more freedom in your life doing freelance – try it out, I promise you won’t regret it. Check out what Steph has helped me create within just 5 weeks

Ieva Radzeviciute

What a 5 weeks it was, the best investment i have made in a LONG time. I cannot recommend this course enough, easy to follow course material, one to one calls with Steph, a great network of people to cheer you on and the end result is nothing i ever imagined. If you have any doubts, DON’T, just do it! I am so grateful to Steph for her guidance, endless patience and the mountain of knowledge she shared with us. It has opened by eyes into a different world of web design and feel like i have found a true passion. I am so sad the course is over but so glad i did it and met some amazing people while doing it. Thank you, thank you, thank you Steph for pushing us all and opening up some great opportunities. I can’t wait to do more courses with you down the track!

Rachel Brennan

I feel like 5 stars just isn’t enough to justify how appreciative I am of Steph for all of her help. I cannot express enough how helpful, knowledgeable, kind and supportive Steph has been throughout this course. I was an absolute beginner with a dream when I started 5 weeks ago, and now I can see this being my dream career. If you have the time and are willing to put 110% into this course well I can guarantee you that Steph will put in 150% and help you reach your full potential. Thank you so much for this dream opportunity Steph, I am so excited for the future bootcampers! Here is a link to the site I created

Niamh Cahill

Where do I even start?! Brilliant from start to finish. This course was the best investment in myself I have ever made.

The course is so well structured and the course materials are fantastic. Everything was made so easy to understand and contains answers almost any question you could ever think of!
The calls with Steph are the best bit, she is so knowledgable and generous with her time (and patience!!). She genuinely wants everyone on the course to do well and it shows. I felt so supported and encouraged at every stage. Honestly cannot recommend this course enough, I just wish it would never end!!

Thank you so much Steph for the doors you have opened for us and the support network we all have now. I can’t wait to sign up for more courses down the line! Go raibh míle míle maith agat!!

Megan Fearon

I would highly recommend this course to anyone! Coming from being an absolute beginner who had no experience with web development or IT to making a website is all down to how well this course is run and all of Steph’s hard work and dedication. The documentation for the course is like a web developer‘s bible as it’s so detailed and has everything you need to know to make a successful site and career in web design. This course has exceeded all of my expectations, I am so happy I did it and can’t thank Steph enough! She has a wealth of knowledge to offer, so kind and patient, and an absolute web wizard! Thank you so so much for the opportunity and all of your hard work, I am looking forward to doing more courses with you in the future! Here is a link to my website that I have created with the help of Steph:

Radka Janacikova

Steph is a fantastic teacher, full of passion and willing to help at every hurdle. She knows so much and wants to share her knowledge and does so exceptionally well. The course is excellent value and I’ve already made my money back for jobs I have worked on since the course. So you do get work straight away afterwards. Steph is so generous in sharing any jobs that come in that she doesn’t have the capacity for.

She gives you all the tools to go out there and work online. Steph gets you ready in every aspect for being an online freelancer, from the basics to where you see yourself in five years. She teaches you how to handle tricky situations that may occur and how to be the ultimate professional in what is a completely new career for me.

She supports you every step along the way. Cannot recommend enough.

Cara Christie

Steph is one of the most motivating and hard working people I have met. She strives for everyone on this course to reach above their potential and is able to explain web development in such an easy way. I had absolutely no experience before I took this course and was a bit apprehensive that I would be completely lost. Her course caters for all ability levels. There are weekly group calls with the objectives for the week but then also weekly 1 to 1 calls where you can ask all of your specific questions and get extra help with any of the bits that you are struggling with. Steph helps you to focus specifically to your clients needs and gets you to ask the right questions and get you in to good habits for this type of business. As Steph has so much experience herself she has great tips for what to avoid and what she wished she had known when she started. Not only were the group weekly calls and 1 to 1 calls, there was also the opportunity for emergency calls if you got stuck on something and just needed a quick catch up. Steph was in constant contact with all of us on the course and we had a forum where the participants could learn from each other and support each other also. At the end of the course you completely finish a website with her support and now have one to show your potential clients – Steph genuinely cares about your professional development and your aims and long term goals. I had a few one to one calls that basically turned in to life coaching calls making me think about where I wanted to be in 1, 3 and even 5 years time. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to upskill or maybe even change careers. It offers you flexibility where you can complete it part time or full time depending on your situation. I am so happy that I decided to invest in myself and learn such a life skill which hopefully will enable me to earn a better income and maybe even travel the world while working remotely.

Fiona Murphy

After completing this course, I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in freelancing web development. Before starting the course, I knew nothing about web development.

Steph created a really informative and exciting course. All of the information Steph provided was so well explained with step by step instructions and even videos!

Steph was there to answer any questions I had. I never thought I’d be able to create a website from scratch in 5 weeks but with the help of Steph I did! This course has opened up so many new possibilities and I am excited to start my freelancing career!

Alison Keane

It may sound dramatic but this course has changed my life! I never thought I would be able to design a sleek and stylish website ever, not to mind in 4 weeks but I have done just that with Stephs help and created Steph is a wealth of knowledge and her ability to simplify and explain the various elements of creating a website was a huge help. My business has become much more than I could ever have hoped thanks to the new skills I learned on this course.

Eimear Morris

One question I’ve been asking myself for awhile is, how can I get a job that will allow me to travel whenever and wherever I want? This course has opened up the opportunity to work and travel for me in such a short space of time! The most organised and detailed course I have ever done. One of the main reasons I did this course was because I was sick of doing courses and getting certificates purely to look good on my CV. Learning the technical skills is one thing but bringing it together with the business aspect of pitching to clients and creating a career for yourself is perfection! If you don’t believe me check out to see what I created in just 4 weeks. Excited for what the future holds. Thanks Steph for your dedication, guidance and that extra little push when I needed it!

Aine Higgins

I cannot recommend this course enough. I was nervous to start as I was a complete beginner and just wanted to try something new as my goal is to travel while working online in the future. I quickly found a passion for it and loved every minute of the course. The course itself is so well structured and I wouldn’t have changed a thing. Steph, from beginning to end, has been absolutely amazing. I learnt more than I could’ve ever imagined in 5 weeks – from coding, setting up a wordpress website from scratch, being able to understand and fix any issues, managing clients, creating pitches & proposals, you name it! Not only that, but Steph constantly reassured me, gave me the confidence I needed and pushed me out of my comfort zone all the time. If it wasn’t for her support and guidance over the 5 weeks, I would’ve never have launched my first website ( with such pride! Steph has opened up a whole new world of possibilities and I cannot thank her enough. I now have a lovely network of freelancers with the girls on the course and cannot wait for us all to start our journey. Anyone who is thinking of applying for a course with Steph, absolutely do it, you won’t regret it.

Lauren Flynn

I can honestly say this course is the best professional investment I have ever made! Steph is an amazing teacher who is completely committed to providing as much information and value as possible. She has a wealth of knowledge and experience from her education and career in IT, and did such a wonderful job at sharing that with us. You honestly couldn’t hope for a more supportive and dedicated mentor. The course itself was extremely well structured and walked you through everything you needed to know in great detail, step by step. This course has armed me with a myriad of new skills, both technically, in coding and web development, but also in business, through creating proposals, working with clients and developing pitches to find work. It has opened up a world of opportunities, not only to embark on a career in a new field of work but provided me with a way to work online and enabling me to achieve my goal of being locationally independent. I’m extremely proud of the website I was able to create with Steph’s help – I cannot recommend this course enough!

Emma Liarakos

This is the opportunity of a lifetime. It is a brilliant course that will change your life if you put the work in. Steph is 1000% committed to it and has thought of every single detail that will help you in your new career. If you have any hesitation about anything, do not worry, she has thought of it all and implemented a step by step guide to master every aspect of it – from building a website from scratch, managing clients and boosting your confidence doing it.

This course has opened up so many new possibilities for me and I could not be more grateful! I genuinely cannot recommend it enough!

I was a complete beginner to everything tech beforehand and now look what I’ve created –

Aisling McCloskey

I have been looking for a change in career and lifestyle and the Freelancer course sounded exactly what I wanted. I have a background in healthcare as an Occupational Therapist so coming into IT was a big change.

The course has exceeded my expectations and was well worth the investment. It is laid out so well and all the pre course work was fun to complete. Each week there are lessons and they are easy to follow.
Steph is such a great teacher and knows when to be encouraging but also help guide you in the right direction.

She gives her all with the 1-1 and group calls. She is so quick to respond when anyone had a query or when I felt I had done something wrong. She shares all her knowledge not just on the technical skills side but also how to be freelancer and pitch etc.

I am still amazed and proud of myself to have created my website and start a business in the 4 weeks! It was a rather intense period working full time and also building my site but the lack of sleep and effort was well worth the reward at the end.

Even after the launch the support we have had has been amazing. One great benefit is all the lovely ladies I have done the course with who were, have been and continue to be so supportive and I look forward to keeping in touch as we all grow our businesses and skills.
I have a clear vision in my head of where I want to be and this course has set me on the road to working wherever I want in the world.

I’m looking forward to working with clients and creating great websites with all my new skills I have gained! I would highly recommend the course!

Claire Anderson

There really is only one word that comes to mind when describing Stephs Freelancer Bootcamp – Superb!

I have attended many training courses and I can hand on heart say the Steph is the best instructor, trainer, coach, mentor and even cheerleader I have ever come across. The time she gives to both group calls and individual 1:1 sessions is something I’ve never experienced before. She gives 1000% of herself to her learners from day 1. Her enthusiasm, drive and dedication for this course is completely infectious.

The Freelancer Bootcamp is more then just learning (and practicing) the skills needed to design and build highly functional and responsive websites. Steph literally teaches you how to work as a freelancer, sharing all the valuable knowledge that she has spent years gaining for herself. There is no competition on this course; it’s all about building a support network where everyone shares in the success and helps eachother through the challenges.

5 weeks ago I came into this course as a complete novice in web development. I have already launched my first website and I am now pitching for my first clients. I mean come on, doesn’t that show how incredible this course is!



Elaine Foott

The Freelancer Bootcamp was such a great investment! I work as a Creative Consultant in the digital space and wanted to expand my services and this course was perfect for learning a new profitable skill! I was so surprised at how hands-on Steph is throughout the course and her support was amazing throughout. She breaks everything down so well in the lessons and also works with you one on one in weekly calls. Another great unexpected benefit was the support from the group of girls on the course. We all helped each other throughout and continue to support each other now. The course truly exceeded my expectations and I’m so glad I enrolled! During the course I built and within a week of completing the course, I booked two new clients with more prospects on the horizon! I can’t thank Steph enough for all of her guidance and support throughout the few weeks and I’m so excited to see where my new skills take me!

Leah Morgan

This course has been absolutely amazing from start to finish. The detail Steph has put in to every part is phenomenal, she has thought of every single aspect of setting up as a freelance web designer – from building a website from scratch, pitching yourself to clients and how to actually work as a freelancer. She even includes useful tips on confidence and career planning. Everything is throughly explained and Steph is on hand (for what feels like 24 hours a day!) if you need help with anything. I went from a complete beginner with no experience in tech, to building my website in just five weeks. I highly recommend signing up for this course, you will not regret it!

Sadhbh McCoy

You know when you sign up for something and you pay and you’re just hoping it’s going to be all you want it to be? WELL THIS IS!! I’ve followed Steph for a while and it’s like it was fate that I was moving over into the online space with more and more interest in it…and then she launched her courses! You’re amazingly well supported throughout, she really does have you covered and goes above and beyond (and then some) to ensure you have all you need to succeed. From the tech advice to freelancing hacks and best practices. I’ve finished the course brimming with confidence and just raring to go. If you want to see what I did in just 5 weeks then go to Thank you Steph! x

Lidia Lowe

This course is definitely the best decision and professional investment I have made and a lifetime opportunity ! If you are really considering to become a freelance web designer then this course is for you! Steph is an amazing teacher and its incredible what she can teach you in such a short time. She is super dedicated and available for questions and advice. Steph also has an amazing energy that will motivate you and make you believe in yourself.

I had been looking for a way to get out of my 9-5 office job and thanks to Steph I am now truly believe I can build my own business and create new opportunities for the future. I created a website for a client and my own website This course is a life changer! Thank you Steph for your guidance, the help and the motivation when I needed it !

Margaux Frey

Best decision I’ve made was to enroll in this course. Stephanie is incredibly supportive and dedicated to providing you with ALL the knowledge she has from her years of education and professional experience in IT. Not only did I learn the technical side of building custom websites (as a complete beginner) I also learned how to work as a freelance developer and have a successful career. Stephanie is the most patient person i’ve ever known and I’m extremely grateful for the entire experience. If you are thinking of a career as a developer I cant recommend this bootcamp enough.

Kelli Ostler

Steph’s course is brilliant and includes everything you need to know to start a new career as a WordPress developer, making websites for clients. Every step is so well explained, straight from the beginning of the course. Steph has designed this course so well and has such a deep understanding of what you need to know as a beginner to get you started. Plus, Steph is always available to help and answer any questions which is great having that support! The freelancing tips on how to get and manage clients is also amazing and has given me so much confidence.
If you like structured learning, are an absolute beginner at website development and like a community feel, Steph’s course is the one to choose!
Thanks to this course, I created my first website: I’m so proud of this site, and it’s amazing knowing I can go to create another one! Thanks so much Steph!

Sophie Satchell

The Freelancer bootcamp experience has been incredible – it’s hard to put into words how amazing this course is. From the level of detail in all the course modules to the personal and dedicated input from Steph to the other wonderful course participants who inspire and encourage on every group call. This course is the whole package. If you are thinking of making a change in your life then don’t hesitate to take the leap. Absolutely everything is thought of in this course from tech skills, business skills and communication skills to time management, organisational skills, goal setting and more! It’s all there and guided by the very knowledgeable and experienced Steph.
I think the thing that sets this apart from other online courses is that you are not alone doing this – Steph is an amazing, patient teacher, there are 1:1 calls with Steph every week and weekly group calls with all the other course participants so you are part of a community that are all learning something new and challenging themselves in the same way you are.
I have learned a new skill, set up a new business and created my own business website : . I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this life changing course to anyone. I sat on the fence for a few months before I took the leap but I’m so glad I did – This is one of the best things I have ever done!

Carol Ryan

Honestly I can’t recommend this course enough, from the technical knowledge, to the practical skills and the confidence you gain to apply all of these to real life situations, it is one the best professional investments you could make for yourself. The course is extremely well structured and no question is left unanswered, Steph truly has thought of everything and if it were not for her excellent teaching I would not have created and loved the entire process of doing so.
If you ever got stuck with anything Steph was there to help and even this guidance she provided was in such a way that she helped you think about what you were actually doing, not just giving you a quick solution. Which is by far the best way for anyone to learn and really hone their skills. Steph genuinely cares about your professional development and ensuring no little detail is missed, whether that is on your current website or in tips and tricks for interacting with clients. I am so happy I made the investment in myself to learn a new skill which I can continuously build upon and I can’t thank Steph enough for the potential doors she has opened for me in the future!

Nicola Hunter

Since starting this course, my whole life has changed! I was stuck in the rat race with a 9-5 job and didn’t see an out. UNTIL …. i heard Stephs talking about her freelancer course and that anyone could complete it. I was so excited to be part of it and nervous that web design/development would be too much for me. I would be completely changing career and had no tech experience. But Steph helped me every step of the way. The lessons are amazing and really give you the knowledge base you need. I now work for myself and love my freedom. If you are interested in what I created with Steph in just 4 weeks check out
I would highly recommend this course, if like me, you are stuck in the 9-5!

Samantha Barry

I would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in creating a website/web development. I learned so much throughout the course, not just in terms of web development alone but also in design, working with clients, project and time management and lots more. The course materials are easy to use, very thorough and cover everything you need to know. Steph is an excellent leader, her knowledge, dedication and support is invaluable and the group of freelancers I got to study and work alongside were hugely supportive and encouraging as well. I completed the course not only with a new skill, but a CPD certification and my very own website too! ( stop by and take a look or say hi on insta @studiobcretives).

Susan B

I signed up to the course because I wanted to invest in myself and learn a new skill – I didn’t realise how much more I would gain from it. The supportive community of empowered women that you join through the course is also invaluable. Steph has worked hard to create content that can be easy accessed to suit your schedule and is very much self-led learning, complemented by weekly one-on-one and group calls to support the journey. I now have a fully responsive website and feel confident in my ability to help businesses create a user-friendly online presence in an increasingly digital world! This course really opens up career possibilities for anyone looking to work online and gain location independence!

Steph FitzGerald-Smith

The Freelancer bootcamp has been such an amazing investment! The course is incredibly detailed with both videos and text to follow, and Steph is always on hand to help you with her wealth of knowledge. Steph puts so much of her time into this course and is there to support you every step of the way, with weekly 1-1 calls with her, along with weekly group calls which keep you motivated and inspired. You learn the skills required to design a website, but also the business side of being a freelance web developer, along with tips on organisation, communication, and access to some great resources. Being a part of a community of freelancers who have all graduated from the course is an added benefit that I didn’t expect, and it is so great to have this support continue once the course has ended. I have gained a whole new skillset from Steph’s course, which has enabled me to start my own freelance career and given me that opportunity to work from wherever in the world I’d like, which is something that has always been a goal of mine. Check out my website I created for a client on the course at, and my personal website which I created since finishing the course at If you’re thinking of investing your time and money into Steph’s course… do it! It is 100% worth it.

I really enjoyed this course! I learned so much in a short time. I definitely think it was a great investment. Steph is an excellent teacher and made learning a new skill less intimiding. Everyone in the group was so lovely and so supportive in the groupchat. I would highly recommend this course!

Having worked as a teacher for the last 4 years, I wanted to branch into something new and to do something for myself. I decided on a whim to enrol in Steph’s course and it’s honestly the best investment I’ve ever made in myself. As an educator, I find it hard to engage in online classes/courses. Steph is hands-down one of the best teachers and mentors I have ever had. Her course is comprehensive, content-rich and created in way that allows you to become highly-skilled in a short space of time. I now have my own business and Steph is to thank for that. If you’re on the fence about whether or not to enrol, just do it! You’ll never look back.

This course was honestly the best investment I have ever made in myself. It’s amazing to have learned a whole new skill over 2 months on the extended bootcamp. The course work is so detailed with a step by step guide from beginning to end. I love the community that Steph has created with the course and I really loved the weekly group calls and huddles. Everyone motivates each other which is so inspiring. I am so proud of the website I created and am excited to see where my freelancing journey goes!

This course is an investment in your future that you will be so glad you made. The course has surpassed my expectations in so many ways. The Freelancer bootcamp is taught using such a hands-on approach. Between weekly group calls, video tutorials, a friendly and supportive group chat and a direct line of communication with Steph, I felt extremely supported throughout. The level of detail provided by Steph and how the course is broken down into small, manageable steps meant that I never felt out of my depth while learning so many new skills in such a short period of time. It was only once it came to launch week and I got to launch my website and also see all of the other websites that had been built that I realised just how much we had all learnt. Along with teaching us the skills needed to design, build and launch a website from scratch, it was the support in terms of actually becoming a businesswoman and freelancer that I thought was most valuable. Steph has worked in this industry for a long time and thankfully has given us endless advice in terms of client communication, organisation, pitching, feeling confident in your ability and also knowing and seeing your worth. I really feel that this has given me such an advantage in terms of finding my feet, and has given me the courage to take a chance on myself and see where this new business can take me. I’m so excited to see what the next few months have in store for all of us recent graduates!

After completing Stephs course I would go as far to say I feel more confident about doing a job than I did after completing a 4 year marketing degree! I can’t express enough the knowledge I’ve gained, the best decision I’ve made was to enroll in this course.
I touched on web design in college but had no knowledge of custom CSS, but without this knowledge you cannot be classified as a premium web developer.
Stephs organisational skills are outstanding, the amount of information you learn, not only about web design but pricing jobs, dealing with clients and running a business, you just will not get it in another course, and definitely not at such good value.
I created a website for a client on the course, which i’m so proud of!
I can’t thank Steph enough for already giving me such amazing opportunities, I’ve still 3 weeks left of mentoring and I’ve already 4 website enquiries!

Orla Breen

The Freelancer bootcamp was the best decision & investment i ever made! The course was exactly what i was looking for – after starting up my freelance marketing business i wanted to add web design as another offering & when i saw Stephs course i knew it was the right fit for me. The course is packed with so much useful information & Steph is always there on hand to help if your ever stuck. During the course i built my business portfolio website and on launch day i had enquires rolling in. Im so grateful to Steph for her guidance & support & of course for the great community of other ladies in business that i have connected with through the course.

Laura Quigley

Best investment I have ever made hands down! Steph is incredible and the course is really informative, the progress you make over the duration of the course is amazing. I now have my own site and business thanks to the course! The group is so supportive and by the end of the course you have a wonderful community to start your freelancing journey with!

Sarah Murphy

The Freelancer Bootcamp with Steph has been absolutely amazing! It really is the best investment I have ever made & it has given me a passion to continue learning and developing so I can freelance and live my dream of working and travelling! I never in a million years would have thought I could build my own website, never mind offer it as a service to help others! I always knew I wanted to work and travel & never really understood how I would be able to do that, but this course has given me that opportunity! I honestly cannot recommend it enough so if you are unsure, take this as a sign! If I can do it, you can too! You can check out my website here if you want to see for yourself!

Christine Murtagh

This course has been a worthwhile investment in my learning and development journey; I highly recommend the Freelancer Bootcamp to anyone wanting to challenge themselves, go freelance or gain transferrable skills! Steph is with her students each step of the way and goes above and beyond to ensure everyone is happy, informed and excited for the week ahead. She has created a supportive, high-energy community, which alone is completely unique to online learning opportunities out there. I still can’t believe I have my own site – – check it out!

Francesca Garman

Steph’s knowledge of web development and the freelancing business is second to none. She teaches you all you need to know about web design, how to deal with the business side of freelancing and how to find clients, which really sets this course apart. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who wants a career change, you’re given all the tools to have the confidence you need to make the leap. I would also highly recommend the extended freelancer bootcamp for people who work full time as the course material is very well paced for busy lives.

Stephanie McNally

The freelancer bootcamp has not only taught me SO much in relation to web development but also has helped me grow in confidence and provided me with the skills to make major life change. Steph’s motivation and enthusiasm for what she teaches is infectious and she is an incredible business mentor.
Over the course of 8 weeks I was able to build my own website while working full time. Steph makes the coursework incredibly manageable and the weekly calls keep you on track and accountable. Steph is so hands on with everything and I already can’t wait to complete my next course with her!

Shannon Walsh

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at the freelancer bootcamp. It challenged me to become an entrepreneur by taking up a new skill & developing it as a business for myself:
Not only have the web development skills benefitted my skillset but the resources & business insights & detail that Steph gives us in how to manage clients going forward is invaluable.

Laura Moloney

I created Dubh Digital off the back of Steph’s Freelancer bootcamp and it was an incredible experience. When I went into the course I knew we were going to learn about website development, but this course really has it all to help you get your business live, land your first clients and arm you with the tools, knowledge and confidence you need to get yourself there. Steph was amazing and it was a brilliant investment.

Michelle O'Brien

An amazing course that one word, just can’t describe the whole experience. From the weekly classes and group calls with Steph, to the fantastic support within the group and the extensive material covered on the course. This is just the start of my journey @created_byniamh as a website developer and can’t wait to keep learning more skills from Steph as I go on. Start your journey and sign up. Definitely one not to be missed.

Niamh O Flaherty

Joining Steph’s Freelancer bootcamp was by far the best investment I have made for myself and my future. I always hoped that I would one day ditch the 9-5 lifestyle but I was never convinced that it would actually happen. Now after completing the course Steph has instilled a confidence in us all that we can do it and it is achievable! I was a complete beginner prior to stating the course so I was nervous that I wouldn’t be able to keep up. Steph has the lessons set up in such a detailed way that you never feel overwhelmed as everything is broken down for you. The support from Steph the whole way through the course was AMAZING. She was always available to help out no matter how big or small the issue was. The support from other people on the course was also something worth mentioning and the sense of community was amazing. I found it hard to imagine that I would be able to say I created my own website and learn so many technical new skills in such a short time but I did, and you if you sign up you will also get the great sense of achievement when you see your own website. I am so glad I invested in the course and I would 100% recommend it!

Karen Keane

An immeasurable impact on my skills, confidence and sense of entrepreneurship!
Investing in myself and this course was an incredible experience, and building from scratch with Steph and the support of my group is one of the most rewarding things I have ever done.
You are fully supported as you upskill with one on one coaching, weekly check-in calls and Slack threads. It takes hard work and dedication, but you can learn a whole new set of skills that can take your career and your life in whatever direction you want to go. You are not just learning how to build a website, you are carving out a new career.
The post-launch coaching and the advice, guidance and camaraderie from the Slack group is brilliant for accelerating your new enterprise and to keep developing your confidence, business mindset and skills.
I can’t believe how far I’ve come, and I’m so excited about what’s ahead!

Rachel Hegarty

The freelancer bootcamp is honestly the best investment I have ever made. For months I was undecided (and a little nervous to do this course) and the only regret I have is that I didn’t sign up sooner! I went from a complete beginner with no tech experience to building in 8 weeks. There are no words that do justice to how fantastic and helpful Steph is. The detail that has gone into every aspect of this course is phenomenal – from building a website, overcoming fears of pitching to clients and the hands on support Steph provides. From day one Steph gives her absolute all, I can’t count the amount of times I sent her messages late at night and I received such a prompt reply. One thing I love about this course is the support from the other grads and also after launch day we continue to do weekly calls for a few weeks to set goals to smash – the sense of community that Steph creates on this course is next to none.
I have left this course with a complete sense of empowerment thanks to Steph and all of the other grads on this course. It has truly exceeded my expectations and I cannot wait to see where my new skills take me. I would highly recommend this course, it will be the best decision you make! Thanks so much Steph, you’re an absolute legend!
