We are delighted to announce that we have created a Facebook group as a support network for freelance musicians who are also parents: https://www.facebook.com/groups/2369471933370782/?ref=share
Since I set up my business in an attempt to achieve good work/family balance, I’ve found a huge amount of online support for people doing what I do – mainly working from home, on their own schedules – but the reality for freelance musicians is completely different. The quest for good family/work balance is much more challenging when you are at the mercy of late-released schedules, engagements all over the world, and evening/weekend work where no regular childcare is available (to name but a few challenges!).
This group’s purpose is to provide a safe space for musician parents ask for help/advice, share successes, or have a moan, and to take steps to improve the world of work for freelance musicians.
If this speaks to you, please do join, and share with your friends!
