Whether you identify as a freelancer, consultant, coach, or solo entrepreneur, there s never been a better time in history to accomplish so much as a single-person company. Just your skills, some key technology, and a network of virtual assistants and fellow solos can accomplish big things.
You don t even have to leave the house, unless it s to work at your favorite coffee shop. And while that may sound good to some (raises hand), to others it can become isolating and downright lonely.
I m Brian Clark, and this is Unemployable — delivering practical advice for freelancers, consultants, coaches, entrepreneurs and anyone else out there making it without a traditional job. Thanks for listening.
From my perspective, even though I enjoy working on my own, I constantly push myself out into real life to interact with longtime colleagues and meet new people. Why?
It s because some of the pivotal moments of my career over the last decade resulted from relationships. And these relationships formed in real life, not just on Skype calls and iMessage.
In this episode of Unemployable, I m chatting with freelance writer Kaleigh Moore about the topic of relationships, and she has some amazing ideas on how to expand both the quantity and quality of work relationships for solos. The initiative she takes to organize these interactions is inspiring, even though she admits it takes a lot of courage for her to play that role.
