I’m Annie Ridout
Author of The Freelance Mum and Shy, editor of The Early Hour and freelance journalist for national news and women’s magazines (Guardian, Forbes, Grazia, Red Magazine, Stylist, Metro, Telegraph). I also speak at live events and I’m a regular guest on BBC radio.
Having seen how many freelancers and business owners struggle with self-promotion, I launched an online course teaching people how to do their own PR (and save loads of money). The first course sold out in two days. I then launched ‘Becoming your own boss’. That soon sold out too.
So now I run online business courses for female freelancers and founders at The Robora. Every time I learn a new business skill, I turn it into a course and share it. Because I want other women to have the freedom, flexibility, confidence, high income and joy that I get from running my own business.
