Are you an early-stage freelancer who’s feeling a little lost and overwhelmed?

I’ve been there.

When I started freelancing 9 years ago, I didn’t really know what I was doing.

✨ I was constantly trying to find information online

✨I had no idea if I was charging enough for my services

✨I didn’t really know how to manage my taxes properly

✨I let clients walk all over me

✨I was awkward and insecure about putting myself out there

✨I felt I always had to justify my career choice

✨I was constantly second guessing myself and questioning if this was a feasible career for me


Freelancing doesn’t have to be a mysterious alternative to 9-5 work that you only dream about. Yes – it requires a lot of hard work, but it’s completely achievable.

I created the BFF (bullshit free freelancing) Masterclass as a helping hand for those embarking on their freelancing journey. It’s freelancing made simple. I provide you with all of the tools you need to get your freelancing business up and running on the right foot with ZERO bullshit included.

No-bullshit approach!

Leah really knows her stuff and gives great guidance on all things freelancing. She was also really supportive and understanding of my queries. Leah gives a no-bullshit approach to the freelancing world!

Super inspired!

I was feeling particularly disheartened and Leah helped me feel better about my services and put a solid plan of action in place for continued success. If anyone is feeling uninspired, feeling like they aren’t progressing as they should or even just need a cheerleader with lots of knowledge – this call is great for that

Feeling so motivated!

The call was brilliant! Leah really knows her stuff and really does her research before the call. She’s straight-talking and it was kicked up the bum I needed! Feeling so motivated and more confident after it. Leah, you’re just fab!

Confidence to make to leap!

The call was an amazing service and so beneficial to myself & my business. I was looking to get advice on finally making the leap as a full-time freelancer & Leah provided me with the tools, knowledge and confidence in myself to just do it!

Laura Quigley

Web Designer & Social Media Manager

Positive and inspirational!

Leah is just as skilled, helpful, positive and inspirational as you would imagine from following her. I can fully recommend this service if you need someone to talk business and plans.

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!

Clare Anderson

Web Designer

Get on it!

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!!!
