The Creative Freelancer Who Came in From the Cold

Then Brought Her Fellow Creatives With Her to a Space Where Their Work Was Valued and Fairly Compensated

Juliet had found herself out in the cold when she had walked away from a job at a company that didn’t value or fairly compensate her work as a creative. But then something extraordinary happened. When alone in that cold place, she took time to consider her bad situation in line with her values. This led her to finding her way back to a space of warmth that served her values, wants and needs.

Juliet had always felt her purpose was to write compelling stories that capture moments, meaning and magic to make sense of the world while sharing facts and research to challenge how people process information. Her recent experiences – the cold and the warm, led her to feel her purpose was even greater than that. She now believed her purpose was to create a workspace for creatives where their work is valued and fairly compensated.

Every week I write three stories about a topic relevant to helping people live their WorkLife in the best way for them. The topics primarily focus on soft skills. I think soft skills are as important as hard skills in being our best. I believe that soft skills are the unsung heroes that drive fulfilled WorkLives.

Two of these three stories are available to everyone. They are free and always will be. I publish them every Thursday and Friday.

The third story is available to members only. The membership cost is £3.00 p.m. I publish this additional story every Wednesday – so members get four/five additional stories p.m. These stories are not better. They’re just extra.

This approach allows me to honour my Purpose: To help people pursue their WorkLives with greater clarity, purpose, passion and pride, by creating continuous WorkLife learning programmes and resources that are accessible to everyone. 

If you find my work helpful, please consider subscribing to my member’s publication.

As an independent writer and WorkLife practitioner, I love to create resources to help people manage their learning as they strive to live their best WorkLife. Your contribution allows me to do that and is really appreciated.
