Set Yourself Apart from the Masses with Evie Smith
BETTER FREELANCING EPISODE 032

Meet +Evie Smith, the founder of Rebellious PR.

Evie has always been a little bit different... and as it turns out, that's a very good thing.

She ditched her agency day job to freelance in public relations.

In this 7-minute episode, we discuss:

() If you’re doing something for an agency, you can do it for yourself as a freelancer.

() Embrace what makes you unique — clients will appreciate it.

() Less pleasant tasks can actually become enjoyable when you’re the one calling the shots.

() Being authentic with your own personal branding helps to attract the right clients.

(*) Never burn a bridge — maintain and cultivate relationships throughout the years.
