Leah Meyers and Sarah Duran
WE'VE BEEN THERE...figuring everything out alone, learning what works and doesn’t work for our clients, constantly refining our business models to give us what we need in life.
We're experienced freelancers who have each built six-figure businesses from scratch.
We do different work as freelancers, find our clients in different ways, and have different business models. The thing that unites us is a passion for helping others use freelancing to work on their own terms. We bring incredibly different perspectives to help you define solopreneurship for yourself.
We’re not here to give you a silver bullet or sugar-coat the work it will take to develop and run a successful business.
We're here to guide you through the journey we’ve already taken, bust common myths about the freelance lifestyle, and give you the support you need to keep going when things get tough.
You’re not a solopreneur anymore - we are your team.
