“My husband and I have been laid off a total of 4 times over the years. I began thinking about the concept of feeling 'secure' in a full time job, and wondered: what does security actually look like to me?
By working for myself, I have the ability to make money for our family, no matter what, and that’s a much better form of security to me than any full time job.”
—Teresa, Mother to 2 young children, and former corporate employee now running a successful freelance business supporting nonprofit marketing efforts.

Prepare Your Business for an Emergency or Unexpected Leave of Absence
Google Doc + Audio Explanation
2020 taught us all that the unthinkable can happen in the blink of an eye. When it comes to your business, you have a responsibility to your clients, your family, and your employees or contractors to be prepared for an emergency - whether it’s a death in the family, an illness, an evacuation, or anything else that suddenly takes you away from your work. Listen to an informative podcast episode where you hear Tiffany's first-hand experience of an emergency situation, and get your free checklist to put plans in place. Future you will be grateful that you did!
