Lucy had recently gone freelance after being made redundant from her side job in interior design during Covid pandemic.
Lucy got in touch with Future Bright, she said “I felt lost and found navigating the freelancer world very daunting so felt like it was a good idea to have something to converse with. I wanted to become more business minded and to develop my business, generate more income and to create a bigger more focused clientele. I wanted to understand what is required to grow as a freelancer and what tools I’d need to make that happen!” Since joining Future Bright Lucy has gone to webinars relevant to her business, expanded her networks and changed her thought process and working methods.
When asked how Lucy worked with her career progression coach Gareth, she said “really positively, I felt like I could ask him anything and he went out of his way to help me. Very reassuring and had a lot of insight. I think just having your goals and plans discussed and written down made me more motivated and gave me this new purpose that drove me forward. Just having general conversations with my coach about any worries or advice was incredibly beneficial for me”.
Since joining Future Bright Lucy said “I feel way more confident in what I’m doing and how I’m doing it. The new skills I’ve gained put me in a better position going forward!” Lucy would say to anyone thinking of joining Future Bright “I think doing a new venture can be very lonely and isolating so having someone to advise you is very reassuring and motivating. See it as helping you achieve those goals!”
