Freelancing is tough business. There are many ups and downs, finding new clients is challenging, the administrative activities overwhelming, and it can be a really lonely journey.
I have personally spoken to hundreds of freelancers, and found that many of them still struggle with their financial goals. They find it hard to build a network of collaborative peers and they also crave a structured space and resources to learn and grow their skills.
As part of my freelancing startup (Ravenry - www.theravenry.com), I'm planning to invest in building up a community that allows experienced freelancers to network, share deals, learn from each other and have access to high quality learning resources. We are currently looking to run several experiments for this community, and we are keen to find freelancers who want to be a part of this journey with us.
Some of the things we will be testing for this community:
Our short term goal for this community is to help everyone increase income by at least USD 1,000 reliably within 3 months.
We will start with a limited space so that we can really focus on helping the right people, while iterating on our content, community, and freelancer solutions.
Currently, we are looking for experienced (3+ years in the field) freelance content writers, consultants, coaches, trainers, designers who spend >20 hours per week freelancing.
Feel free to drop me an email if you are keen to join us in this exploration. :)
