About This Class


In the second part of The Freelancing Guide I will talk you through some top tips to helping you stay on top of your work without losing your mind. I went freelance 7 years ago after a career working in a studio surrounded by people. I've learned a lot of tips along the way, along with juggling work and family life. I hope this class will help you start to feel control of all aspects of your life. 

We will cover:

Scheduling your time

Doing favours for friends (we've all been there!)

The importance of networking and socialising

Using your downtime effectively 

Working around a family and other commitments

The secret to a perfect work / life balance!
