The pandemic has got a lot more of us thinking about working for ourselves. Particularly for creatives, freelancing can mean more freedom, control, and artistic satisfaction. But where to begin?

Sarah has worked as a freelancer in several creative fields for over 20 years. She'll walk you through the steps of launching your own self-employed career, as well as what to do next. Some of the topics we'll touch on include:

  • Finding work
  • Finding community and coaching
  • Setting prices & getting paid

  • Insurance

There will be plenty of time for questions and conversation to find out if this is the right career choice for you.
