In this episode of Your Biz, Your Rules, I’m chatting to freelance coach extraordinaire, Miss better-than-Google herself, Emma Cossey!

Listen here:

The key takeaways:

💛 Freelancing was made for introverts – you get to work from home, you get to take your control back and you get the flexibility of working around your energy.

💛 If you download an app and don’t like it, you can request a refund… who knew?!

💛 You will never get to the point where you will entirely finish your to-do list. Accepting that will never happen is the healthiest approach you can take!

💛 As a generation, we feel very uncomfortable being bored. It used to be normal for people to feel boredom, but now we’re constantly driven to be always working, always improving. It’s like we must always be achieving something. What’s that about?
