Ep 5: Fighting the Isolation Factor -- Freelance Foundations
Topic: Loneliness and isolation don't have to get us down.
As freelancers, isolation and the loneliness that can result pose a real threat to not only our mental health but also the longevity and success of our practices – as independents (and people), we need to connect, collaborate and educate. Interacting with other freelancers helps us keep a positive mindset and gives us an opportunity to help others in their practices. In this episode, we review some ways to do that (including sharing a bit about Niagara’s coworking community and how independents here collaborate, advocate for and support one another).
