"Being self-employed isn't an easy path but, with the right tools and working methods, it doesn't have to feel like an impossible job."
Why join the community?
Marketing is all about getting and keeping customers but many self-employed people get it wrong and certainly don't do enough of it.
In the community you'll learn some down-to-earth techniques that will make a huge difference to your marketing success.
When you're self-employed you have to be more organised than you will ever have been working for someone else.
The community has loads of ways to organise your work to enable you to get more done than you thought possible.
Networking is a great way to find customers and meet potential collaborators.
Our members-only facebook group gives you access to expertise and support from people who've been there and done it.
Planning gets a bit of a bad rep as boring and irrelevant. However, having a plan can be make or break in many cases.
In the community you'll find ideas for planning your work and then working your plan.
Pricing is often a grossly misunderstood part of being self-employed and in the community you'll discover ideas for setting prices properly and also using price tools for increased profitability.

You'll find several strategies for breaking through tough times and making sure that your work (and often your confidence) remains in good shape.
