I'm guessing you set off on your own because you were bored of the corporate world and you wanted more freedom and flexibility? Maybe you wanted a better work life balance or saw an opportunity to earn more money and make a difference. These are just some of the reasons why more than two million people in the UK have taken the leap and become freelance.
Freelancers contribute £119B to the UK economy
41%of freelancers are female and 59% are male
1 in 7 of all freelancers are working mums
1.77 MILLION work freelance in main jobs
A further 234,000 work freelance in second jobs
There are now more than two million freelancers in the UK alone and that number is growing around 30% each year. With more freelancers and small business than ever before, the competition is at an all-time high. Skills can be learnt at a fraction of the cost and there are always people willing to work longer hours for less money.
So how do we stand out from the competition? The answer is actually rite in front of you.
My sessions with Matt really helped me to clearly define my goals and achieve things I previously thought were beyond my reach, including having my music played on BBC radio and winning new freelance clients.
Before I started working with Matt, I knew what I wanted to do, but I didn’t really know how to get there. I wasn’t measuring my performance at all and I rarely wrote down my goals or aims, they mainly stayed in my head. I look forward to our meetings, as I know at the end, a problem will be resolved, as conflict dissolved or a plan of action made.
Matt has a rigorous, clear-thinking and friendly approach and really got his head into the mechanics of our business - which was just what we needed.
Matt is fantastic at what he does. He got to know me and my business personally and tailored his services to my own needs.
