Francesca was at a career crossroads having returned to work after maternity leave. We helped her create an exciting new family friendly business for herself.
From employment in the Arts to self employment: Francesca
Francesca, a working mother of 2 kids under 6 left her dream job in the Arts after returning from maternity leave after her and her employer agreed it was best to part ways.
With the support of 6 hours of coaching, funded by her employer, we helped her to set up a new business which was up and running within 4 weeks and with her first paying client within 6 weeks, an amazing achievement and testament to her hard work and dedication.We supported her through the transition from going to work as an employee to setting her own agenda as a business owner getting clients.
We helped her clarify how to design the business to both meet client needs and have a healthy work-life balance with quality family time. We shared useful resources about relevant networking groups, branding, target audiences, social media, marketing, giving confidence and clarity in self-promotion and the importance of making time to review, reflect and plan. In a short space of time the difficult return to work was transformed into a high of being an independent, successful and self employed business owner.
Francesca's new venture works with one person businesses like herself and offers personalised technology consultancy, freeing them up to focus on other business issues.
"I worked with Rachel when I was going through a major career change and in the process of setting up my new business. She knew exactly the kinds of issues I was dealing with and her vast experience in this area meant we could quickly focus on those areas, which needed most attention for me. Its great working with someone who can offer you the perspective you need and thanks to her I was able to make a smooth transition to my new career and take with me practical marketing and networking tools to get my business off the ground. Thank you Rachel for giving Digital Dragonfly its wings to fly!"
