THIS WEEK'S GUEST

About Laura Briggs

Laura Briggs is a writer, entrepreneur, and author focusing on the impact of the freelance economy.

In her own words

I’m a freelance writer and entrepreneur who threw out my entire business model at the end of 2015. I was sick of working on unfulfilling contracts and outsourcing my work to subcontractors – a process that seemed to add far more work and frustration.

Instead of continuing down Burnout Boulevard, I fired half my clients and kicked off the new year with some commitments, one of which was to only work with clients and subcontractors who allowed me to grow my business the way I wanted to.

What we talked about

The pros and cons of becoming a free lancer.  How to balance this with your day job, when or if to tell your employer and so much more.

Laura’s Book book START YOUR OWN FREELANCE WRITING BUSINESS is available on Amazon.
