Interview with Saibu, an HR content writer for a remote company

My biggest challenge freelancing or working remotely has been power.

I lost clients because of this. But I’m glad I was able to pull through. Now things are better.

Hear how Saibu, a thriving HR content writer, navigates the complexities—and perks—of working with a remote team from Ghana.

Interview with Alexandra Cote, a remote digital marketer and freelancer

Having to live with uncertainty. Not being sure if you'll get more clients this month, not knowing if you can take a few weeks off, and not knowing if the client you work with will be super happy with your results.

Luckily, all of my clients have been pleased with my work, but I've always had my doubts in the back of the mind since I mostly work with people I've known for a short while, so you never know if there's a tiny little thing they want more attention put onto.

Alexandra juggles freelancing, a full-time remote job, YouTube, and Skillshare instructing. How does she manage it all? Find out in her interview.

Interview with Nico, marketer and advocate for remote worker mental health

Balancing those freelance hours with my full-time job can be a challenge. It's really just a matter of time management and asking myself, "which hours are my more productive hours?"

"I've felt burnout HARD in the past. When it hits, it HITS, and it can be tough to recover." In this interview, Nico shares his strategies for balancing work and life and reveals the key to avoiding burnout.
