Five days to boost your freelance confidence
Have you ever felt like you're holding yourself back in your freelance business, until you have more confidence? Have you had a situation recently which has really put a dent in your confidence, and you're not sure how to get it back?
Seven years ago when I started my freelance business, my confidence was at rock bottom. I'd come out of a job that had eroded my self-esteem, and was a confused introvert in an extrovert world (before Susan Cain came along and cleared up so many introvert myths with her book Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking). Over the last seven years, my confidence has rocketed thanks to freelancing - taking control of your career and life is a pretty great way to feel good about yourself.
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.
