This week on the Freelancer’s Teabreak podcast I thoroughly enjoyed chatting with @getwildlyfree
This week on the Freelancer’s Teabreak podcast I thoroughly enjoyed chatting with @getwildlyfree. We talked about the patriarchy, burn out and what you really want from your freelance life. This felt like such a good episode when we recorded it, and when two members of my team messaged to say how much they loved it, I knew it would be one a lot of you would resonate with. As women we are so often told to be compliant and quiet and not make a fuss and it damages our health and our wealth, or as

This is particularly useful for freelancers with autism or ADHD. You can find a way that works for you and how you work. Or people with children or caring commitments where you can work around the needs of people who depend on you. Maybe you h

It’s World Social Media Day and often social media gets a bit of a bad reputation (and rightly so sometimes!) But… it has helped me achieved so many positive things too. It’s helped me to grow my business and find new clients, it’s educated me and helped me find some amazing opportunities.

Whether that is other connections to help me in my parenting journey, other freelancers and friends, or others with A

It’s that time of year again and probably the only time I wished in a big air-conditioned office. It can be hard working and motivating yourself when it’s this warm (I am NOT built for heat). Here are a few tips to help. My neck fan is such a win and I would highly recommend it! I’ve also been using these cooling pads that I keep in the fridge.

It’s day 3 of the #5DaysFreelance challenge and today I am challenging you to create a reel solving a customer problem. I want to talk about my accountability coaching. This is to help clients who are overwhelmed or stuck in analysis paralysis and just don’t know how to move forward.
