BFF Academy

Bullsh*t Free Zone

Bullsh*t Free Freelancing = BFF 🕺

Learn how to start your freelancing career without the BS! From my eight years of industry experience, I’ve created the BFF Academy to help you navigate those early freelancing days. 


Are you thinking of taking the leap and going freelance? Or you’ve made the jump already and are feeling a little lost?  I’ve been there! When you set up your own business it can be so daunting, especially when they don’t teach you about things like personal branding or finding clients in school! But don’t fear –  I’ve got you!


The BFF Academy offers 1:1 mentoring and online courses for aspiring and early-stage freelancers. I guide you through everything from defining your personal brand to landing your first client and leaving your 9-5.


My aim is to make freelancing an accessible and viable career option for everyone.

Well worth the investment!

We covered so much in the 1 hour call. Leah was able to work through everything I had wanted to discuss and she was very supportive. She made me feel at ease and gave me very helpful suggestions that I am going to implement. It was well worth investing!

I’ve taken longer, ‘intensive’ business courses in the past, but came away with more useful and actionable information from this one-hour session with Leah. Get on it!!!
