Are you hungry for even more freelancing tips, helpful advice, and insider know-how? Well, you're in luck—because that's exactly what my email list is all about.
Sign up below to add your name and email address to the list, and you'll get all sorts of goodies (including roundups of awesome freelance gigs!) directly to your inbox on a weekly basis.
And, since I know it's tough to think about adding yet another email to your already-stuffed inbox, you'll receive my top ten tips for getting started as a freelancer right away. Yep, just for signing up. Consider it my way of saying "thank you" (since, you know, computer hugs aren't exactly a thing yet).
The best thing you can do is to get started before you ever leave your current job. When freelancing comes with so much uncertainty, it’s nice to get the ball rolling when you still have the comfort and security of a steady paycheck. Use that time to build up a side hustle and also take care of those nuts and bolts things you need to get started—like setting up a website and an accounting system, for example.
Heads up: The newsletter is on a holiday hiatus until 2024! It'll come back swingin' in January.
"I joined Kat’s community of freelancers over a year ago, and I have never regretted that decision. One of the highlights of this community is Kat’s weekly newsletter. In it, she imparts relatable and useful advice and shares practical and helpful resources. She tackles the important and nagging issues that are on the mind of all freelancers while simultaneously bringing a positivity that makes you believe “you got this.” Kat doesn’t just talk the talk; she seems genuinely invested in helping freelancers better their business and reducing the struggles and insecurities that come along with being your own boss. Kat and her newsletters have helped me immensely."
"I’ve subscribed to many newsletters for freelancers, but Kat’s is one of the fewest that actually understands my problems and gives solutions that work, and does so in a friendly tone, as though I were receiving a personal letter."
"Kat's newsletter does two essential things for my business. First, it reminds me that I'm not alone on the hard days, confusing days, and "but really, is it worth it?" days. Second, her newsletter gives me a lovely example to follow. Kat's honest and entertaining advice around pricing, business, maternity, and client communication has a permanent bookmark in my email. Kat is a treasure—it's no surprise her newsletter is, too."
"Freelancing can be very hard to navigate on your own without proper guidance. Kat’s newsletter is the guidance I wished I had starting out. She offers so much value—you’ll get super-helpful weekly updates about freelancing, highly-curated learning resources, and to crown it all, a list of quality and high-paying freelancing gigs."
"Kat's newsletter is an absolute must-read filled with fantastic tips, from finding gigs to client emails and taking a vacation. It's witty, honest, and relatable, answering so many questions I (and many others) have about the ever-changing world of freelancing. Kat's passion for sharing her knowledge shines through in this newsletter, and I'm always excited to start my weekend with it!"
"Being in the marketing space, there are tons of newsletters by awesome folks and companies out there. Kat's newsletter stands out! It's very helpful to me, because I'm in the content marketing space and I get to learn about writing tips, new freelance gigs (always uplifting the community), career advice, and personal branding. Not just that, she is very kind to reply whenever I have a question or two about what's in the newsletter."
The last thing we all need is yet another email in our already over-crowded inboxes, right? Believe me, I get that—which is why I aim to pack absolutely every single email I send with as much value as possible.
Sign up for my list and expect all sorts of helpful resources, insider insights, and exclusive content you won’t find anywhere else. I even send a weekly email that pulls together some freelance gigs that are worth a peek.
What shouldn't you expect when you sign up? All sorts of junk, spam, and constant overly-promotional, cringe-worthy sales messages (because I know just how groan-inducing those are).
Does that all sound good to you? Well, I certainly hope so. Go ahead and subscribe using the form above and I'll pop by to say "hey!" in your inbox soon.
All of the virtual high-fives for you, my freelance friend!
