In this episode, we’re tackling a topic we’ve wanted to talk about for a while. Speaking candidly about our own experiences, we share what it’s like being freelance while also raising a family.

We chat about the highs and lows, the challenges we’ve faced, and what it feels like when you come up against ‘The Patriarchy’.

We describe different seasons of parenting, what it feels like being pulled in multiple directions, and the importance of setting boundaries.

We also talk about finding time to work, division of labour in the home, and dealing with feelings of guilt. Finally, we consider the need for more role models, sharing places you can find fellow freelance parents online.
