Freelancing can often feel like a solo pursuit

But with the right support it doesn’t have to be. We’ll start by understanding your weaknesses then map these to people in your life who can help you turn them around. Whether you walk away with one solid accountability partner or five people on your side, the idea is you build up a support network to propel you forward on your journey as a freelance creative.

This allows you to stop being so reactive and start becoming more proactive. Let’s do it!

Once you've landed on the key attributes that are holding you back, think about the people in your life who have complimentary strengths that could support your soft spots.

  • Select support team
  • List their admirable attributes
STEP 3

SUPPORT PROFILE

Now that you've identified people in your life that are valuable to your wellbeing, I want you to build a narrative that will help you in reaching out and enabling them to actively support you.

  • What do you admire?
  • How can they help?
  • How can you help?
STEP 4

START THE CONVERSATION

You've built a support profile. You now have a script for a conversation that you can have with each support team member. Now take a deep breath and start empowering people to help you grow.

“FRAMEWORK IS MORE LIKE A FAMILY THAN AN ONLINE COMMUNITY…

Minus the creepy uncles and tiger mums. 0% bullshit, 100% vibe, 10% maths equations."

“FRAMEWORK HAS BEEN THE FOUNDATION OF MY SOCIAL & PROFESSIONAL NETWORK

The online Framework community has been a source of strength, support and social interaction. It’s more than the sum of its parts - it’s a home to all who come."
