Freelancing can be a very lonely business.

But who ever said that the “I never leave my house” model is the best approach?

It isn’t.

Regardless of where you live, there are many options for connecting and collaborating with fellow solo professionals.

Even if you’re an introvert.

Not just to combat isolation. But also to share ideas, get useful feedback and potentially get (and give) great referrals.

In this episode, you’ll hear from Emily Leach, a long-time freelance designer and SEO professional who understands firsthand the value of having a community of peers.

Emily is the founder of the Texas Freelance Association, a non-profit for freelancers, as well as The Freelance Conference, which will take place this September in Austin, Texas.

She explains the different types of communities… the biggest benefits of each… where you can find them… what you can do if you live in a small town… and much more.
