This year we’ve teamed up with Hnry to bring you ‘The Freelancing Diaries’, a series helping freelancing creatives navigate self-employed life and find their version of financial success.

This quarterly content series is chocka with freelancing business tips to help you navigate running a creative business, as well as de-mystifying some of the barriers for those considering taking the leap.

From handy resource articles, free-to-attend live webinars, to sharing some of the real and raw journeys from our creative, self-employed community – we’re tackling some of the biggest freelancing woes, what to do about them, and how you can build the successful, creative business of your dreams. 

Kicking off this month, this quarter’s Freelancing Diaries w/ Hnry series is giving you the 4-1-1 on ACC. 

With ACC invoices about to be sent to ALL self-employed folks next month, we’ve got some handy resources and a webinar coming up that breaks down the different ACC levies and the easy way to check whether you’re overpaying ( and what to do about it ). 

We’ll be covering questions like: What is ACC? Who pays for it? And how do you know if you’re being charged too much?

Throughout this series we’ll also be chatting with other creative freelancers who’ll be giving us a peek behind their freelancing journey from the big mistakes to the big wins.
