The Freelance Business Lounge

An essential hub of practical resources, courses, trainings and templates for freelancers + weekly group coaching + exclusive discounts on freelance tools

Are you looking for confidence, strategy and accountability as a freelancer?

  • Are you nervous that your 'luck' will run out, and you won't be able to land another client?
  • Do you wish you had a more strategic approach to freelancing, feeling more in control of where your next project is?
  • Are you looking for email templates to take the stress out of messaging clients?
  • Do you want to know the latest tips and tools from freelancers who have actually implemented them successfully?
  • Or, are you brand new to freelancing, and want some guidance on how to set up?
  • PLUS, do you want support in a private Facebook group, with weekly group coaching sessions?

You're in the right place my freelancing friend, pull up a chair and grab a cuppa.

10 reasons you need The Freelance Business Lounge in your life NOW (because I love a listicle)

1) You fell into freelancing, but you don't currently have any strategy or plan. Frankly, you feel like sometimes you're treading water, rather than swimming to success!

2) You want an adulter adult to do the scary stuff like contracts and accounts, because right now it all seems a bit overwhelming.

3) You want to start taking your freelance business more seriously, but you lack faith in yourself and your business. Secretly, you're scared you can't keep doing this long-term.(Spoiler: You can!)

4) You want to have a pipeline of eager clients, rather than panicking when a contract ends and face-planting a pint of ice cream while hitting the refresh button on your email.

5) You want to start boosting your business, but you still want to have balance and fun in your life. Less 24/7 hustling your ass off, more keeping the weekends free for fun.

6) Networking terrifies you. You want to show up and wow....but the idea of walking into a room of people makes you want to stay on the sofa and hide under a blanket.

7) Accounts? They're a January panic rather than something you're organised about. You want to change that. Hell, you'd like to get to January and have money left over after your tax bill.

8) You know you should have a marketing plan. And probably a mailing list. But....you're not quite sure what to do, what to share or where to start. Don't panic, I've got tutorials for that.

9) You dream of winning at uncomfortable client conversations instead of just drowning in ick. Well, that's what my email templates are for. Whether it's business correspondence... (etc etc), I've got you covered.

10) You are, or you're planning to, juggle freelancing with parenting. At the moment, it feels like you're stretched to your limit, and only just covering childcare costs. Self care? HA HA HA. (I've got lots of ways for you to make more time to fit in self-care, and less time dealing with the boring stuff).

What actually is the magical, mystery Freelance Business Lounge? I'll tell you.

The Freelance Business Lounge is a monthly membership packed full of resources, courses, tools and tips to help you grow your business, get organised and have more fun as a freelancer. I wanted to create a library of resources for you to dip in and out of, in your own time, to really work on your self-development in your business and personal life. From email templates, to expert trainings. From video tutorials to exclusive discounts for freelance tools like insurance and accounting.

PLUS there's a Facebook group and weekly group coaching session to keep you on track.

Topics include:

  • Starting your Freelance Business
  • Pitching for clients
  • Goal-setting
  • Freelance Confidence
  • Retainers
  • Freelance Parenting
  • Networking
  • Finances
  • Time Management
  • Business Templates (including NDAs and service agreements)
  • Top Tools
  • Coaching tools


But...I don't have time?

This content is going to be seriously practical and useful - no fluff, all bitesize tasks to get you where you want to be. It will save you time, because you'll spend less time Googling, and more time taking action.

Plus, you'll have a Facebook group to give you accountability to use these tools. I don't want you to just sign up then forget to login. I want you to get the most out of it!

Oh, and as it's based on Teachable, you can access it all from the app! Just imagine, learning more about LinkedIn for freelancers, or grabbing an email template, with a couple of taps while you're queuing at the supermarket.

Resources + templates + accountability = freelance success!

Hello! I'm Emma Cossey, and I run The Freelance Lifestyle. I’ve been freelance for over ten years now, working with both big and small companies on an assortment of social media, copywriting, blogging, training and consulting projects. I started The Freelance Lifestyle when I spotted a gap in the market for creating content that makes going, and being, freelance as accessible and straightforward as possible. Practical tips, not dull business lingo. I wanted to create a hub of resources for freelancers to delve into. What started as a blog and podcast, grew into a Facebook community, a coaching service and now The Freelance Business Lounge.



Testimonials

"Being in the Business Lounge feels like having a freelance family - there's always someone there to offer a helpful perspective, a piece of advice, or a virtual hug! The weekly calls keep me accountable - plus seeing and talking to other people about what's going on in our businesses is incredibly reassuring. The coaching exercises Emma runs are where I can really feel myself being supported and stretched. I can honestly say I set and achieve goals that I wouldn't without The Business Lounge".

- Rebecca Broad, Freelance Communicator

"When I joined the business lounge I had work coming in but was in need of a new challenge. Working through Emma's group exercises and having the support of the group really helped me focus on what I was needing. I now have a handful of new and exciting projects and opportunities lined up for 2020 and feel I am moving my career forward"

- Lyndsey Clark, Freelance museum and exhibitions consultant

"The Freelance Business Lounge is packed full of resources and has everything you need whether you’re at the start of your freelance journey or have been going for a while. Emma is an experienced freelancer and coach. She shares her years of experience so you can hit the ground running and not fumble your way through freelance life. She also brings her calmness to the group and is great to chat to if you’re having a wobble."

- Lisa Pierce, E-commerce manager
