So, a little bit about me
My name is Ruth, I come from an ordinary working class family. My father came from Liverpool and grew up in tenements, my mother from sunny Southport. They met, married and eventually moved to a nice semi-rural area on the outskirts of Southport. My father was always a hard worker and a creative problem solver. From his work ethic and determination to always be on the winning side, I probably got my natural drive and tremendous determination. I was brought up that you must work really hard to have money. There was no pocket money in my parents' house; everything I wanted I had to work for myself.
Before I was old enough to be employed, I offered my cleaning services to my mother and got some money for it. I hated it, but I did it to get ahead. As soon as I was old enough to work a 60-hour week at the local farm for £2.65 an hour, I was in. As you can see, I was taught from a young age: work hard and get paid. But that was about it. That was all I was taught. That's all most people are taught about life, work and money, isn't it?
What if there was another way?
Well if you're a stylist, then you are in a perfect position to be able to work less and earn more money. Even in the current climate. How do I know this? Well quite simply, because I've done it and now I want to share what I have learned with you and successfully put it into practice.
We all have the potential within us to achieve great things!
Just like me, you have something unique and brilliant to offer the world and I want to help you share your best self with the world and turn your dream life into reality.
I've first compiled my knowledge into my E-Book The 5 Figure Stylist to give you an initial handbook where you'll find everything you need to get off to a successful start as a self-employed person. With this I succeeded in providing a first little help for start-ups, but it was not enough for me. There had to be more to become a high earning freelancer with the time to enjoy that money too. And so I started to work on the concept of The Freelance Suite App, giving you the perfect tool to achieve all your goals in a relaxed way and finally earn what you deserve!
