Viv Egan: Location-Independent Expat

Originally from Australia, freelance writer Viv is now based in London with her English partner. We talked about choosing to have a home base, managing Airbnb rentals, how we get clients, and lots more.

In This Episode

  • Choosing to have a home base
  • Being an Airbnb host
  • Our struggles to find subcontractors
  • Tips for getting clients as a freelancer
  • Creating a platform for digital nomad women’s voices and concerns
  • And so much more

Resources We Talked About

Note: Links with an asterisk are affiliate links, which means you may receive free credit or another bonus and I may earn a small commission or other benefits if you sign up/purchase using that link. There’s no additional cost to you, of course!

Viv’s list of ways she’s found freelance writing clients:

  • Through Facebook groups (tip: I’ve never had much luck with the larger ones with thousands of members)
  • Through friends (chatting about being a freelancer at a party)
  • Through former colleagues
  • Cold emailing people in my niche and asking them if they were looking for someone to look after their blog
  • Contacting people through LinkedIn to ask if they ever take on freelancers (startup type companies are great for this)
  • Signing up for a paid jobs board (Rachel’s List)
  • Typing variations of “we’re always looking for talented freelancers” into Google, which often leads to agencies (speaking of which, if anyone with content/SEO/PPC skills are happy to do agency work, get in touch with Viv and she will refer you; they’re always looking for people, especially those with languages other than English)
