Learning how to free yourself workshop @The Allbright collective

If you’ve been following my escape the 9-5 blogs and articles you’ll know that I’m on a  mission to share my insights and experience with other people seeking to find their happiness and freedom.

I’ve been delivering talks on this and I’m excited that I’ll be speaking at the Allbright (a networking and events collective for women)on Wednesday 18 July on how to free yourself.

My talk will be based around my new book ‘How To Become A Consultant: A Guide To Free Yourself From the 9-5’ which is a no-nonsense guide that gives practical advice on how to set yourself up as consultant and establish a work routine that fits in with your ideals and lifestyle.

I’m truly passionate about sharing with those who feel trapped in their job, just like I did and sharing ways to help solve this problem. With that said, I have now set up my YouTube channel ‘9 to 5 work rebels’, with the aim of motivating and exploring ways to free yourself from the 9-5 grind and bring balance back into your life.

This event is for members of the Allbright collective only, but if you’re interested in booking me for your event – do get in touch and please do subscribe and like my new channel. 🙂

Your CAREER, how to do what you want when you want

Are you looking for a change in your work life? Do you feel like work is depriving you of your happiness? Are you fed up of the 9-5 grind? Do you feel like you are ready to make the next move in your career but not sure what to do? Or maybe you feel like your career is stagnating and you’re at an intersection of indecision.

Working in a 9-5 (usually longer) can start off nicely, but soon morph into a living nightmare. It can be restrictive, time consuming and if you don’t like your job, an extremely unsatisfactory and depressing daily experience. At one point in my career, I felt trapped and depressed, plodding along in my 9-5 job until I decided to step-up and make a change. I wanted to have control over my life and how I spent
my time, so I decided to set up my own consultancy. If you like the sound of being your own boss, deciding when and where you work, you should seriously consider becoming a consultant. It’s a great way to free yourself from the 9-5 drudgery, by using the skills you already have.

Working as a consultant in the field you already specialise in, means, you can choose to work independently or with others. You can remain an independent, or decide to scale up, hire staff and delegate. You can choose to work from anywhere in world. The decision is entirely yours to make and boils down to how much responsibility you want to take on and how it will impact your work-life balance. I know lots of consultants that split their time between living in the UK and abroad
because being a consultant allows them the freedom to do so.

Time to escape the rat race

A study last month of 5,000 workers concluded that self-employed people are more successful in their careers and felt happier in their job. * So why don’t more people do it? Is it fear, financial pressures or the lack of know-how?

As a successful consultant myself I can say that its a combination of the above, but with planning and passion, you can free yourself and it doesn’t have to be high risk or a fancy idea. Becoming a consultant can be a simple way to create the life you want by selling what you already do well, on terms that suit you.

I used my expert skills and knowledge having worked in communications, PR and marketing for well over a decade to become a consultant. You too, can enjoy a rewarding career, financial success and that important work life balance by taking this route and using the skills you have.

I  felt  trapped and depressed in the past in my  9-5 job which is why I decided to set up my own consultancy with just £100.  Five years on, I have no regrets, I enjoy the empowerment and challenge of working for myself, and  I’m much more happy.

 

I am keen to share my insights and experience with other people seeking to escape the rat race. My new book ‘How To Become A Consultant: A Guide To Free Yourself From the 9-5’ is a no-nonsense guide which gives practical advice on how to set yourself up as consultant and establish a work routine that fits in with your ideals and lifestyle.

The book covers all aspects of becoming a consultant from identifying your niche and registering yourself as self-employed to planning, establishing your fees and promoting your business.

I share practical information to guide you through the process and as well as insight into my own journey so you can avoid the pitfalls and succeed in your venture!

How to Become a Consultant is the essential guide for anyone who wants to become a consultant.
