Q & A

Whats the best thing to happen to you in your career to date?

I was made redundant. This gave me the time and perspective to work out what I really wanted. I packed my life up in Sydney and moved to Melbourne for 2 years. Best thing I ever did!

What does a typical work week look like for you?:

Monday - Wednesday I am busy - Meetings, planning, client work. Thursday - Friday I am quieter - Spend time with my children, enjoy time in the sun when I can!

Describe your working environment in a few sentences..

My working environment can be anywhere - The beach, the park, my desk at home or in the car waiting while I pick up my children.

What sets you apart from other freelancers in your industry?

My solution based, business problem solving skills.

What are the tools of your trade?

I can be very powerful with a pen and notebook (I am old school at heart), iphone and a wifi connection.

Do you collaborate with others? If yes, how does that works?

I do collaborate with others on larger projects. Whatever I can't do, I usually know someone who can. It is important to know you can't do EVERYTHING!

Whats been the biggest freelancing lesson to date?

You are your biggest asset - so invest in yourself!
