After being laid off for like the 4th time in the last 10 years, I’m ready to go full time freelance and work for myself. Are there any resources out there for non-creatives on this journey? My background is strategy, analytics & general brand. I can also do media planning/buying for smaller clients.

The most important resource for you getting work will be your prior connections/co-workers/people you hired and/or helped along the way. Reach out to everyone, let them know you’re freelancing/consulting whatever best lingo is for you. Ask for help. People are amazing. Also, it probably won’t be management but more in the trenches - be sure you are ready for that and in how you communicate. It’s ok to have “director of …” in your profile but for freelance work - give them a title or range of titles they need. I have found stepping back and opening up to all levels of work, has led to a lot of growth for me in unexpected areas. And I am old, fyi and still kicking!

I went to the doctor yesterday & officially found out that I’m struggling with anxiety & depression. I was promoted to Sales Manager about 6 months ago. On one hand, I love my work & do enjoy it. But I’m kind of an overachiever, so I think the stress takes a toll on my mental health. I guess I’m just wondering if anyone else has experienced this & what you found to be helpful. TIA!

Hey team! So I was laid off from my SDR position about a week ago. A couple months back, I had an offer for a BDR position that I ended up turning down but I really liked and connected with the manager. Is it worth it to reach out? I applied to other positions in the same company. What about reaching out to previous co workers at a different company? Not sure how to navigate this… please help. Also I’m sorry if this is the wrong bowl to post in.
