In this episode, Pilar talks to Olivia Jones, a freelance copywriter based in London about being freelance and dealing remotely with clients.

 Check out Olivia’s blog:

The transition to freelance and deciding what area to focus on. Working with freelancers in other countries when she was a project manager. How being a project manager has helped her to go freelance.

How can you figure out if a client is going to be a good person to work with and what the barriers might be to fruitful collaboration.

 What is copywriting?

How Olivia initiates the conversation with a client. Would anything they say put her off?

Olivia’s creative process; how she creates the right work environment for herself.

Olivia’s health and fitness blog and the opportunities it creates.

Working remotely with clients. (She might sound like one, but Olivia’s not a “millennial”.)

Freelancers are always learning!
