#40 The Inside Scoop on Freelancer Life with Rebekah Lambert
Show Notes

Rebekah Lambert is the founder of Unashamedly Creative, a business helping social entrepreneurs thrive. 

There are many arms to Bek’s business - content creator, social media guru, coach, and strategy and planning services. 

But Rebekah is so much more than just her business. Bek runs a wildly successful Facebook group called The Freelance Jungle which is an amazing space where freelancers feel FREE to discuss the trials and tribulations of being a sole trader.

In this podcast, we talk about:

  • The need for the real-world space to feel as safe for minorities as the online space can feel.
  • Bek’s innovative methods for getting work - you NEED to hear her hilarious and super creative ways of getting eyes on her business.
  • Her involvement in community groups and the good work she does at bringing people together.
  • That if you can do something different - and even a little bit strange - you will stand out from the crowd.
  • How by proactively looking for ways to help people and giving, rather than focusing on what’s in it for you, you’re bound to get further with your business.
  • That if you take constructive criticism personally in business, you’ll struggle to thrive.
  • How freelancers need to understand their boundaries to ensure they get the most out of their work/life balance.
  • How we can reduce ableism in the workplace - which means excluding people because they have a disability, are neurodiverse, or are in some other way ‘different’.
  • How so many people become freelancers because they feel the traditional working environment is unsafe for them and makes them feel anxious.
  • How to manage clients as a freelancer.
  • How community groups can give you the chance to see how other people solve problems and make you feel as though you’re not alone - because you’re not.
  • The steps to running a successful Facebook group.
