“The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing” – Walt Disney
What makes someone start a business in 2021? How different is it from when you started yours? This week, Ed chats with the first in a series of freelancers who launched their freelance careers in 2021.
In this first episode, we meet Deborah Frampton, a VA from Trowbridge in Wiltshire to learn why she started and what the journey has been like for her so far. Included in the chat are what have been her highs, lows, how she found her first client, what are her goals, and more.
Deborah Frampton (in Her Own Words)
I help busy business owners leverage the Pinterest platform to drive traffic to their website and increase leads. As a search engine, Pinterest provides answers to questions that people are searching for along with eye-catching graphics.
I also assist the busy business owners with their email management, calendar management, and appointment booking, so they don’t need to worry about forgetting to send that zoom invite or double booking their time.
Facebook groups are a fantastic way of building community with your potential clients/customers. However, they are very time-consuming. I offer to manage the day-to-day community management (post scheduling, commenting, event scheduling, etc) so the busy business owner can focus on other things they cannot outsource.
