“Back to Mother-Effing Square One.” Rebuilding a Freelance Business from Scratch (FS137)
“No point in beating around the bush – I’m hoping for advice (and reassurance) here. I’ve recently experienced a pretty huge disaster in my freelancing career, and I’m absolutely kicking myself.”
That’s how a Fizzler started a recent conversation in the Fizzle Forums, and on this episode we help her blueprint a freelance business from scratch.
Here’s some of her story:
- She started a successful-ish service-based business
- She “fell out of love” with that business and accepted a job opportunity
- 2 weeks later the company she took a job with fired everyone in her department
- So now she’s back at “mother-effing square one” and wondering what to do.
This episode is so raw and honest it might make you bristle a little. We talk about money, emotions and some back of the napkin math you need to do.
I’ve taken a lot of courses and been involved in several paid communities since I started my business, but I’ve never ever felt like anyone CARED as much about seeing my reach my goals as the Fizzle Team. They show up for me as much as I show up for myself. Thank you SO much, you guys!
