How to start a business – Dorothy Krajewski
I created this short online course for people who want to start their own business but feel overwhelmed by the process, like I did when I first started thinking about being self-employed. It took me a good 5 years to finally have my own business because I didn’t know what I was doing. This course has all the information in one place with an activity in each lesson that will take the learner one step closer to their own business.

This is for anyone keen to dust off their non-fiction manuscript and self-publish it! Author and writer Anna Featherstone is presenting and it’s going to be a rather comprehensive hour of getting that book of yours to market.
Self-publishing community – Sheree Chambers
I’ve made a Facebook group for authors, writers, and specifically those wanting to learn more about the world of self-publishing. The aim is for it to become both a support community and an educational resource. If any freelancers want to join or spread the word, I’d appreciate it a lot. Self-Publishing made easy
Blog Swap- Melissa Gerke
A lovely friend and I exchanged guest posts and promoted them this week. I’m a copywriter and Bianca is a Mailchimp pro, so business wise it was an ideal collaboration. We both thought it was a success and recommend doing it. https://bthriven.com/what-is-seo-and-why-is-it-important/
Here is the one Bianca wrote for me https://melissagerke.com/2020/10/08/how-can-my-business-benefit-from-email-marketing/

Conquer Your Fear of Conflict – Rebecca Bec Carroll-Bell
Today I am wearing my Everyday Mediator hat to revisit and refresh an online course first released a few years ago.
Conquer Your Fear of Conflict is a 2-part program that will show you how to overcome your fear and replace it with confidence and proven strategy.
In Part 1 of the course, you will learn practical strategies for responding to conflict and managing confrontation without losing your cool.
Part 2 focuses on what goes on in your body when facing conflict. We will look at the physiological and neurological responses to conflict, what they mean and how you can tame – and even harness – that energy to focus on creating the right outcome for you.

Money blocks – Lisa-Maree Botticelli
I’ve been researching, learning and improving my knowledge on making money, especially, understanding money blocks and beliefs around making it, and charging the right amount. I’ve seen so many artists and creative struggling with charging what they are worth, so, with all my research and lived experience I put together this course, The Alchemy of Money, which I will be launching soon. It includes weekly mindset masterminds and contains over 30 meditations to clear money blocks, 10 workbooks to rewrite your money story and looks at your family’s beliefs, so that you can step into abundant living with ease and grace. Would love to hear what freelancers think. Is this appealing? Something you’d find value in doing? https://www.landingi.purecreativitycoaching.com/moneyalchemy
