Discuss how others have successfully resolved the challenges that can dampen the spirits of enterprise when your market is not outside your door, the income is less, and support is largely not around. Discover how this environment, conversely, can also be a fantastic enabler of work / life balance. This free webinar features a diverse panel of rural freelancers, all in the continuous process of establishing themselves. Share their stories of successes, strategies, marketing processes and how they cope with the challenges. Each has their own approach which, as you will discover, isn't necessarily 'by the book'.
This interactive session will be hosted by the founder of Cohoots Coworking in Castlemaine, Tim Ford. Tim is a qualified business coach experienced in supporting rural micro enterprises. On the panel are: - Australian Aid Person of the Year 2016, aid, collaboration and impact consultant Rhonda Chapman. Rhonda's evolving and diverse working experiences including maintaining broad networks and adapting to complexities that are in constant change. - Award-winning writer and mother of pre-school children Lindy Alexander. Lindy blogs about being a freelance writer and her work has been published in numerous digital and print publications. Lindy uses a virtual assistant for some social media support. - Self-confessed organisation and solution junkie Cass Ewing. Cass helps businesses and individuals with the tasks and projects they don't have the time, skills, or inclination to undertake themselves. Cass also uses an online crowdsourcing platform to broaden her services.
