✨There is a movement to create financial freedom
Author Joy Batra introduces a tool to thrive in life and work
Have you ever considered how important flexibility, autonomy, and choice are in career longevity? What about financial independence for women? Or for all people to just make ends meet? What about finding personal fulfillment and a sense of affirmation for people ready to get off the corporate ladder? What about people who trained to be a lawyer, financial analysts, or other professionals, but are called by a passion for the arts? Do they have to give up one for the other?
There is a movement out there to support freelancers as a tool for financial and personal freedom, and my guest this week on The Mindshare Podcast is contributing to this worthy cause. Introducing Joy Batra, author of the soon-to-be published book The Freelance Mindset: Unleashing Your Side Hustles for Better Work Play and Life.
I am sharing our conversation with Joy here, and this one is particularly close to my heart. We talk about how to create a work life that works for the individual and their personal and financial fulfillment. When my children were young, I walked away from an impressive career in tech for flexibility and freedom, and boy, do I wish I had had this book then rather than creating that path without a roadmap! But that is why I am here today in my older and wiser years. And as you all know, we love to show how one can thrive and not just talk about it. So listen up, please!
Drawing on a decade of Batra’s own freelance experience and interviews with fifty freelancers across industries, Joy’s book offers concrete ways to navigate the uncertainty of freelancing to build a life that is financially and emotionally satisfying. This book and my conversation here today are new and such an important tool to help all people meet their personal and professional needs.
P.S. The Freelance Mindset book can be pre-ordered on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Bookshop.org. It is available March 8th.
