Sara Frandina is a rare breed of freelance professional who always seems to have it all together.
Whether we’re talking about her own website, the freelancing community that she co-created or the Slack community that’s just budding, Sara is on top of things.
We’ve reached out to Sara to ask her the usual questions that we pose to guests of Horkey Handbook’s Freelancer Spotlight series.
And of course, she overdelivered.
What do you do and how long have you been in business?
I wear two (very different) hats: I started my solopreneur journey three years ago as a copywriter, editor and content strategist. About a year in, I also began co-running the community at One Woman Shop. I now split my time pretty evenly between the two.
How did you start freelancing?
In the spring of 2013, I was running “lunch + learns” for the small business owners in my community (I worked in marketing at a local tourism office), on all things marketing, including blogging and social media.
After one of those lunch + learns, I had a few business owners ask if they could hire me as a freelancer to take on some of the tasks I was teaching them. Well, up until then, the thought of freelancing hadn’t even crossed my mind, so color me intrigued, especially considering I was pretty unhappy with my work environment at the time.
