Let’s work together to help your freelance business grow.
What are the benefits of using a mentor?
There are many ways in which a mentor can help your freelance business. Here are just 3 examples:
- Access to a second opinion when you need it
- Ever wished you had a second opinion to help you make those crucial decisions? Very often, freelancers that I meet have no one to act as a sounding board. However, freelancers with mentors have someone who can take a fresh look at their ideas.
- Have more confidence to make the right decisions
- A mentor for freelancers will provide encouragement and encourage accountability. This also allows you to grow in confidence, when the areas you’ve excelled in are pointed out to you.
- Benefit from second-hand experience
- It’s great to learn from your mistakes, but it’s even better to avoid making the mistakes in the first place. This is often another way a mentor can help your business, simply by tipping you off to methods and processes that really don’t work well, and sharing with you those that will.
Turning an idea, skill, passion or hobby into a business can be both an exciting and daunting venture. Together, you and I will bring your business to life and work towards you making a profit, while enjoying your journey too.
The people I work with are freelancers and other business owners who work in a team of one, rather than a team of founders. You can be anywhere in the world and still have my absolute support. Get in touch and let’s chat about how we could work together. To give you an idea, here is a list that will give you an idea of what I will do:

What I don’t do…
