Episode Notes

Ever thought about becoming a freelancer? Would you work by yourself, at home or find a co-working space? Would you lean on a network or be the solo captain of your own ship?

​Debbie Ford is a UK-based freelance Social Media Coach who believes in the amazing power of network. She couldn't find an online or 'real life' group that suited her needs as a freelancer - so she created her own!

Started in 2016, Debbie's group, The Chichester Social, runs the Last Friday Club - a free monthly business networking meet-up for freelancers and independent business owners or solopreneurs.

​In our chat, Debbie and I, who are long-time internet friends, have a great laugh about working with clients, despite our different jobs. We talk about treating your own freelancing business as a client and giving it the marketing time and support it deserves.

​We also gab about finding business networking communities, a tribe and being generous with your time and expertise.

​Debbie is a gorgeous ball of energy with an infectious laugh. Couple that with my sarcastic lack of wit and you've got yourself one heck of an episode.

Thanks for listening!
