Successful companies often work well because they are a group of people that have come together to achieve a common goal. It’s a group who can bounce ideas off one another and support the team and goal with their specific skill set.
As a freelancer, we don’t have that kind of backbone; we are on our own. We are our own account director, our own project manager, copy writer and all the other things that need to get done to run a business. When you have a side project, alongside your other job, you are in more or less the same situation; you’re working on things all by yourself.
A couple of weeks ago, I invited a group of freelance content strategists to work together with me out of my apartment in Vienna, as a way to tackle the "own-ness" of freelance life. I bought breakfast, I made lunch and made the gals some coffee whilst we chatted and discussed freelance matters as a group of people who are all in the same boat. It was wonderful.
We founded a Facebook group to enable us to ask questions and help each other out. I recommend that you too find a group of people who work in the same field as you, so that you can get a second opinion on whatever questions you have. And of course I encourage you to invite them over for a co-working day at your place. If you are looking for a group of community & content strategists, comment below, so I can include you in ours.
