Weary freelancers set to enlist at new 'bootcamp'
The first leg of a “bootcamp” established to help drum up the skills to overcome the challenges of self-employment is calling for freelancers to enlist.
Run in association with The Guardian, the camp’s first class costing £99 on Tuesday November 21st is aimed at unsure, fatigued and even disillusioned freelancers.
“Avoiding the slump” will help such freelancers “rediscover” their initial enthusiasm for freelancing, while addressing the big questions which can arise after year one, organisers say.
They are; “What am I doing this for? How do I cope with the current economic, social and political climate? Can I build a business in the future? Am I looking after my wellbeing?”
Lasting three hours, the session is scheduled in London from 18.30, with Natalie Campbell, an award-winning businesswoman, and Samantha Clarke, a consultant.
A business coach and mentor, Mark Leruste, will also be on-hand to offer guidance alongside promised "special guests," before a Q&A session for freelancers to pose their own queries.
