53 million Americans currently do some form of freelance work and that number is rising. As the freelance community grows, so does the need for freelancers and solopreneurs to understand how to stand out.
Through using a tried-and-tested framework created specifically for freelancers and solopreneurs, Get the Gig! gives you the practical tools to help you to win more business through:
I'm a life long Freelancer, Founder of Brits In The Box, former VP of Production for MTV; with post-graduate qualification in business from the prestigious University of London.
Over the years thousands of résumés have landed in my inbox, and I've interviewed, coached and mentored hundreds of people. I really know what Freelancers and Solopreneurs do well ... and not so well.
I understand the plight of freelancers and solopreneurs as I'm immersed in both worlds. I spend my time managing people and productions as a freelance producer, consulting with businesses (from start-ups to big corporates) as a solopreneur and providing one-to-one coaching, online training and talent management through Brits In The Box.
I created Brits In The Box in 2012 to connect the ex-pat TV community living overseas. As our membership grew, so did my awareness of the issues affecting the creative, freelance and solopreneur communities. And so I created 'Get The Gig!'
Get The Gig! originally debuted as a seminar in New York in June 2015; where it was presented as part of Freelancers Union's speaker series.
