Freelancer and Other Words That Start with F

Ever thought about becoming a freelancer? Or maybe you ARE a freelancer and like me, you're fascinated by the way we choose to work. 

I'm Elizabeth Dunne, a freelance graphic designer and visual storyteller. I left corporate life about seven years ago with nothing but an eye for visual interpretation and a keen entrepreneurial spirit. Since then, I've started two successful companies—and have been freelancing for two years. 

As a general nerd about dorktown, I've always been curious about how things work and, importantly, how people work. I'm known for being stuck in my #digitalhermit ways and my rather deep love of new technologies and apps. I'm that person, the one who gets excited about a KANBAN board and who thinks OKRs are just about the best thing since sliced bread. 

Freelancer and Other Words that Start with F is my version of networking and I'm really happy that you get to listen in! If you're a freelancer and would like to be a guest - get in touch

sherry's advice:

"You not only have to be talented at what you do. You have to be an all-around business person. You're "it" when you're freelancing so learning the ins and outs of doing professional business and getting help when you need it are absolutely key. "

debbie's advice:

"Get a good accountant or bookkeeper! Numbers ain't my thing. Fill the gaps with other freelancers rather than trying to do it all yourself - focus on what you are good and outsource the rest."

rachel's advice:

"You may have to work full time until you sort your stuff out. That's a valid journey."

erin's advice:

"Don't say yes to bad clients that you'll eventually hate because you're too scared that you'll go broke."

adam's advice:

"You're never done.  In fact, you haven't even started.  You have to love whatever your gig is like, because it stays that way no matter how good you get."
