Jennifer established an impressive four-year career in content and editorial before making the leap to self-employment. The chance to collaborate with other creatives and clients was on she couldn’t miss, and Jennifer hasn’t looked back.
She explains: “I love the challenge of being a freelancer; it’s not always easy - it’s certainly not for everyone. But the ‘it’s sunny, I’ve got a coffee-in-hand, I run my own business, I just got paid’ days make it all worthwhile.”
“Crunch was there for me when I was already really overwhelmed about all aspects of being self-employed.”
Jennifer joined Crunch in November 2018 after admitting that tax wasn’t her forte. Jennifer says: “It wasn’t until I had to Google ‘how to do taxes UK' that I realised how impossible that can feel sometimes. Crunch made things simple and clear.”
“When I’ve anxiously emailed the team multiple questions in a row they’re always there to help; it gives me the confidence to get on with my work. I no longer doubt if I should have paid attention in maths class.”
Jennifer relishes the professional freedom that freelancing gives her. For anyone looking to follow in her footsteps, she advises: “It’s better to work with people that you get on with. Not every client, or project, is right for your business. Be nice and work with nice people. Don’t undersell yourself. And the odd time, finish work on a Friday at like, 2pm. Go read a book in the park or something. It’s the dream.”
