I’m Megan, a full-time freelancer…Welcome to BlackFreelance!
This site is set up to support you in your independent work journey. It doesn’t matter if you’re looking at full-time work, a side-gig, staying afloat between jobs, or just to build up some extra savings, this site can help you build a flourishing, sustainable, employer-independent career.
You’ll find that things are set up in stages…From the resources here on the site, to the free newsletter, to the Academy, BlackFreelance is designed to walk you through a process of identifying where you are, establishing your fundamentals, and then developing sustainable habits to keep your career growing in the best direction.
- The Free Resources here on the site that help you find your starting point
- The Newsletter to help you hammer out your basics (also free)
- The BlackFreelance Academy, that, once you’re ready, helps you kick off and maintain the habits that keep your career growing and profitable (for less than you pay for Netflix each month)
There’s a lot going on here on the site and you’re welcome to explore, but the first thing you should do is download your free, freelance workbook here. It will help you grow with intention, and get the most of everything on this site. After that, the easiest option is to go to the bottom of this page and choose the description that fits you best. If you want to learn a little more about BlackFreelance though, keep reading!
Freelancing is a big world and people do it for different reasons, so I want to let you know that this site is geared toward finding the balance between two things…
- Finding peace in your work life
- Getting the best income possible for your effort
I personally started freelancing to reduce stress, so I don’t believe in working non-stop, tolerating low-payment forever, or not using your freelance skills to improve your life as much as possible.
Here at BlackFreelance, you’ll find all the standards including a blog, tips (on finding freelance work, improving your skills, specializing as a freelancer,) and an explanation of why this site exists in the first place. There’s even an Academy to join once you feel comfortable with your basics.
