Get Messy in 2019

We are half-way through the first half of the first month of 2019 and it seems the whole world is abuzz with goal-setting challenges, detoxes and resolutions for the year ahead. A whole new 12 months ahead to lose that bit of weight, learn that new skill or get your finances in check.

The start of a new year signals so much opportunity and scope for making positive changes in our lives and the lives of others. 2019 feels a bit different though - as the way we work has been changing and evolving over the past few years, it truly feels that 2019 holds vast opportunities for those who are ready to commit to changing course and working in a different way.

“2019 is THE year for the makers, creatives and multi-passionates. If you have been thinking of taking the route to self-employment, there has never been a better time to make the leap”

For corporate workers who want to use their skills and transition to the autonomy and independence of freelancing, 2019 is a wonderful time to start plotting your escape. For those women who have Etsy shops, or are side-hustling with design projects alongside a 9-5, there has never been a better time to take your side hustle full-time.

If you want to work part-time so that you can follow your passion for dance, art or music - there are more opportunities than ever for self-employed virtual assistants, project managers and those who have digital content and design skills.

With strong communities galvanised around supporting creatives, entrepreneurs and the self-employed in all forms, 2019 is truly the year for makers, creatives and multi-passionates who want the chance to design their lives. Why?

The world of work is fundamentally changing

More people than ever are starting their own businesses and they are looking for flexible, and affordable part-time support in marketing, digital content, social media, events, operations, admin, accounting and personal assistance. If you have these types of skills, you are in demand! These entrepreneurs are specifically looking for self-employed individuals or teams for support and don’t want to waste money on recruitment agencies or big corporate firms - they are looking for individual talent that is agile.

The future is freelance!

Have you noticed all of the co-working spaces popping up in London, New York, San Francisco, or Tallinn? There are co-working spaces for techies, creatives, well-being, lifestyle and some just for women! It has never been easier to find a network that supports and embraces individuals who work for themselves and are location independent. The networking, investment and collaborative opportunities abound in these places, and it’s only just the beginning.

The rise of the laptop lifestyle

If you have a laptop you can run a business. It’s never been easier to create a website, open an online shop and run projects. You are not limited by location - you can truly have clients and customers all around the world.

All it takes is a goal and a plan to make it happen, with some support along the way. Your life could look drastically different in 12 months if you take action now. We know the ups and downs of this road, and we’d truly like to be alongside you for the ride. If you are ready to design your life, then be sure to join our community for all the support and resources you need to make 2019 your year!

We asked her a few questions about her workstyle, her life and what it’s truly been like to build a transatlantic fashion line from the ground up.
