Six months of freelance, days of fear and how I found work

Liz Elcoate:

Let me give you a little background detail as to why I became a freelancer in the first place. The long and the short of it is I didn’t like doing what I did for the company I worked for, I felt like a factory worker and I wanted to branch out and take on new challenges. I also needed to have flexibility with my hours but most of all I wanted a new beginning where I was in charge. Feelings, I would imagine, many employed people can relate too.

So I decided to leave.

That’s the easy bit. 

Things got trickier.

I now needed to find work…

Freelance or not this piece is a good read.
