Happy #InternationalWomensDay!! I wanted to share this post today because while I work alone 90% off the time – there also are some awesome women who have been helping me behind-the-scenes! Since I’ve been doing freelancing work full-time since October, I realized early on that I wouldn’t be able to do this all myself….so I put a post on my IG stories that I was looking for interns and snagged these ladies up!
My interns have been working with me this semester and have been such a help and blessing to not only my productivity but to my sanity. While there definitely was that training period where I felt like I was working MORE when they first started, about 3 weeks in is when we finally got into a good routine. I meet with them once a week on Mondays for an hour reach to go over tasks for the week and approve content. Also, once a month I have been scheduling a time for all of us to meet where I teach them something new. Last month, I dove into the details of email marketing, and this month I’ll be going over Pinterest strategies, hacks, and best practices.
I wanted to use #InternationalWomensDay to appreciate these ladies and for you guys to get to know them! I did a brief Q&A with them and have linked their blogs (yes, somehow they all have them lol) below so you can check them out too.
Plus, my application is open for Summer Interns! If you’re interested in applying, learn more here. 🙂
