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!

Hi love how Faye is straight to the point and direct. She understands we have busy lives but would LOVE to watch her videos so she doesn't waste your time with fluff or stuffing but just solid points that will truly help organize a work life balance. Thank you!
A great class that you can fit into an afternoon with practical suggestions and tips on how to schedule and relieve the stress of developing a freelancing career.
Faye, you have such an adorable way of talking about freelancing! I really enjoyed this class. Most of all because it made me aware of how much more other people have to deal with throughout their days. I have a puppy and even though she needs a lot of attention it's nowhere close to having kids wanting to play! :) keep doing amazing work! <3

These days I work on a variety of project...
