Q & A

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

Working with local small businesses to teach and coach them in using digital media for their business, as part of the NBN rollout in Ballarat.

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

Publishing blog posts for my clients, creating social media posts to promote this content and sharing that content on social media. I spend time refining my products and services to make sure that I am meeting the needs of my potential new clients and making videos for my Facebook page and YouTube channel. I attend local networking events for women entrepreneurs and look after my two boys.

Describe your working environment in a few sentences..

I work in a dedicated home office whose walls are covered in bookshelves filled with fiction, business and self-help books. I am often supervised by at least one of my 3 cats and have a wonderful view out my window onto my garden.

What sets you apart from other freelancers in your industry?

My dedication to my clients' success, as well as my own. I judge my efforts by how well my clients are meeting their goals and always aim to do the best possible job for my clients. I've also found that I am super efficient with my time and can achieve a lot more in a given time span than others. I learn new tasks and technologies easily and quickly.

What are the tools of your trade?

My PC, my phone and my diary.

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

I've collaborated with others to run networking events in Ballarat. Successful collaboration relies on having clear boundaries of roles and responsibilities and timely and effective collaboration. I also feel that all my work with clients is collaborative, as we all need to do our part to achieve a successful outcome.

Whats been the biggest freelancing lesson to date?

Be super clear in your communication about expectations in regards to costs, tasks and timelines.
