Setting up a freelance content marketing business from Shanghai
My client, Lois, is an experienced writer, editor and marketer, based in China’s biggest city, Shanghai. She was in a full-time corporate content/comms role out there but felt bored and lacking direction. She knew she wanted to start up as a freelance content writer/editor but it felt like a big leap that she wasn’t equipped to make. She joined the Megawatt coaching programme to support her in breaking away from full-time employment, defining her services, and confidently securing great client projects.
By the end of the two-month programme Lois had:
Started her freelance business
Found the confidence to push for projects that match her strengths
Booked her first 'fresh' client, (who wasn't an existing contact) for a price that felt right
Been invited to host an industry panel discussion - public speaking was one of her goals
