Going it Alone: My New Blog Series | Work

francescasophia.co.uk desk set up with freelance blog post and tips
If you've been following me on Twitter or Instagram, or you happen to have seen that YouTube video of mine, you probably know I've not been having the best of luck on the job market, lately.
I lost a job I loved in January, and one I loathed not too long ago; I've been made redundant just to have my ex-boss ask me for advice a few months later, I've had my work ethic questioned weeks after working non-stop through a miscarriage.
I've done proofreading jobs, data entry work, at-home and in-office, and temporary, and full time, and part time, and I've struggled to get interviews due to a 'lack of experience', despite a glowing track record.
You feel exhausted reading that, I know, but I have a point, I promise.

I'm taking a big, scary, giant, terrifying, step...and going it alone. I'm becoming a freelancer.
I have a website in progress, the first couple of projects under my belt, a near-constant migraine from dealing with HMRC, and an anxious pain in my chest whenever I think too hard about the future.

But more than that, I have a fire that the last couple of roles I've worked so hard at, the last few recruiters who've dismissed me out of turn, and the blank space where my savings used to be, have stoked.

You should probably hit the 'follow' button on my Bloglovin'Twitter , or subscribe to my YouTube, because from here on out, I'll be sharing (amongst other things), my tips, tricks, failures, and flaws on my journey to creating my own company, and I'd love it if you'd come along for the ride.

  2. So sorry that you're dealing with all of these issues lately. Good luck on your freelancing adventure. I can definitely see how it would be scary leaving the conventional style job behind.
