As a freelancer and founder, the community you build around yourself makes all the difference to your success. Build a network that will support, champion and elevate you. 


Freelancing Gems offers the ultimate digital membership to support your business success.


You’re leaving money on the table.

As women, we experience unique challenges in business. On top of the staggering national gender pay gap of 13.3%, women typically undercharge for their services, undersell their experience and hold themselves back from applying for work until they met 100% of the criteria.
In fact, recent reports show that women charge up to 50% less than their male counterparts in freelancing and consulting. The good news is, that founders like Fleur Madden and Kirsty Jackson are breaking down these barriers and improving workforce participation rates and pay parity for women just like you.


Available exclusively for a limited time, save 13.3% off your Freelancing Gems annual membership with the code NOPAYGAP. 
The Freelancing Gems membership is your ultimate business growth tool with access to work, talent and hands-on, tailored support. You won’t find any gender pay gaps at FG.
