“The Flex U. (Freelance Business Model) broke the dam in my brain that was keeping the good stuff back. Now, I go with my gut a lot more when I'm negotiating potential new projects or new work with anyone — it's really just holding onto those core values and saying, “Are any of my values being compromised? Am I going to be able to commit to this and keep my word? Yes? Okay, then this can move forward.”
SR. UX DESIGNER, DEVELOPER
"When the idea of becoming a Freelance Copywriter & Content Marketing Strategist blipped into my mind it was still nothing more than a dream, until Flex U. One single conversation catapulted me toward that dream making it a reality. Every classroom after that reinforced my belief and inspired me in ways that nothing else could. It's shown me that Freelance is freedom, and freedom is allowing me to become better."
COPYWRITER & CONTENT STRATEGIST
"Meg not only helped me through some challenges I was facing at the time of really “finding my voice as a leader”, she left me with a better understanding of how to approach leadership with team members in my freelance business. Meg has reinforced the importance of listening, being real and authentic, and most importantly, being a stand for and committed to those I am working with. She ultimately helped me build the confidence of just being and trusting in myself."
