About Annie

I’m Annie Ridout.

Author of SHY and The Freelance Mum

Freelance journalist for national news and women’s magazines (Guardian, Forbes, Grazia, Red Magazine, Stylist, Metro, Telegraph).

Founder and editor of parenting platform The Early Hour and online business platform The Robora.

And business coach.

This is my space to talk about writing (my books, poetry, journal, published articles).

While at The Robora, we’re all about women in online business – courses, coaching, podcast, membership.

I wrote about the courses for Stylist and the Guardian and was interviewed about them for Sunday Times StyleSecrets of the Side Hustlepodcast.

I live with my husband and our three children in east London.
