Kate O’Mealley is a writer, content specialist and coach who knows a thing or two about snuffling out a great lead.

In this special presentation, Kate will take you through:

  • The different styles of work available
  • How to find jobs
  • How to build networks to grow your business
  • Why word of mouth is powerful
  • How to ask for work without feeling the cringe


Kate O’Mealley is a Copywriter. Editor. Professional Typo Spotter and Small Business Mentor.

 Kate founded Oh My Word in 2004… way back when social media and #sidehustle wasn’t a thing! In the beginning, she juggled her small business with working full-time in big business – but had a sneaky feeling corporate life wasn’t for her.

 With 15 years of experience in corporate communications, Kate’s written about many things from superannuation to recycling pizza boxes. She’s also been a ghostwriter for CEOs and AFL footballers. These days, Kate puts her wordy skills and business experience to good use mentoring and working with a range of businesses (big and small), not for profits and solopreneurs. Kate is also the Dep Editor and feature writer for Coal Coast Magazine.

About the Freelance Jungle:

The Freelance Jungle is an award-winning grassroots community that helps Australian freelancers navigate working for yourself in real terms. We focus on ending the isolation inherent in freelancing, reminding you stress has a productivity cost, raising the knowledge bar and advocacy. We are the 2019 winners of the Wayahead NSW Mental Health Matters Workplace Wellbeing award. We offer a regular educational roster of free and Patreon subsidised interviews, courses and presentations. Our virtual networking offers regular stress downs, dress up lunches and crafternoons. And (when we’re not doing the COVID dance) we’ve run over 100 in person events in Sydney, Wollongong, Newcastle, Melbourne, Brisbane, Cairns, Adelaide and Perth.  Find our more at our website https://freelancejungle.com.au/


The Freelance Jungle redundancy program has been made possible through the generosity of Good2Give and Facebook Australia. As part of a grant, this program aims to provide people affected by COVID, the bushfires and the economic downturn within Australia to transition from employment to freelancing. It includes the opportunity to learn from people who have already faced redundancy as well as those flourishing in their fields.

The Freelance Jungle has a Facebook community, virtual catch-ups for stress reduction and networking, and a commitment to education via podcasts, blogs, and online learning.
