My Freelance Journey – Lorna Smart

by | Oct 15, 2021 | Creative Writing, Keepsake

Hello, my name is Lorna Smart and I have taken the leap into the world of freelancing, part-time at the moment.

Prompted by some changes in my circumstances, I decided to combine my creative talents with my customer service experience. I have set myself up as Lorna Smart Wordcrafter and I provide writing, copywriting, and proofreading services.  

Researching what sort of insurance would I need, whether the business should be set up as a sole trader or a limited company, and the many other factors that need to be considered and decided on was a minefield. Luckily I found a few useful websites that helped me. One of these was Simply Business and another was Start Your Own Business.

I know that I am in for a long and hard, but rewarding journey to make my business successful. I want to strike the best balance that I can between earning money, supporting other businesses no matter how big or small, and being able to support charities and non-profit organisations.

If you want to find out more about me and what I do you can find me on my website. I can also be found on Instagram and Pinterest under ‘lornasmartwordcrafter’.
