What led you to join Freelancing Gems?
I was new to the freelancing world after being made redundant in 2020 while pregnant with my second son. I didn’t have much of a network and was looking for job leads.
What has being part of Freelancing Gems brought to your life?
Freelancing Gems has brought so much to my life. For starters, job opportunities. This has come from direct job postings on the platform, people finding me on the platform, the network I’ve built through FG, and connections of connections I have met at FG.
I have gained so much confidence in networking and meeting new people in business. I have made connections and friendships through the events. Gained knowledge and skills from the webinars and events. Gained the ability to charge what I’m worth.
How have those things impacted your life, family, business?
I have been able to continue freelancing which is amazing for my family life meaning I can work around my two young sons. It has impacted my business as I have gained a lot of tools and knowledge and great connections to lean on for projects that require them.
What sort of roles are you interested in? Ie freelance, consulting, projects, part time, remote.
Freelance, Projects, Part time and remote. I’m open to any exciting new opportunity.
What are you seeking at this stage in your career?
Flexibility to work around my family life and opportunities that lead to business and personal growth.
Has being part of Freelancing Gems made you think about how you charge? And have you given yourself a pay rise?
Yes definitely. I increased my hourly rate when I first signed up and got the rate card and am about to make the next increase. I also reconsidered different ways to charge including packages and day rates which have been game changers.
