Hello and welcome to The Freelance Parent. My name’s Cat and I’m a freelance writer and journalist and mum to a very energetic toddler called Leo. I’ve been freelance for over four years and know how running a business can change quite a lot when you become a parent. So, I’ve created a weekly newsletter, full of advice, anecdotes and support to help you thrive professionally and personally after pro-creating. Please sign up, subscribe and welcome to the club.

‘We’re strong enough to bear the children. Then get back to business’.
