In today’s 40 Minute Mentor episode, we’re joined by journalist, broadcaster, TV presenter, Podcast host of ‘The Solo Collective’ and author, Rebecca Seal.

Rebecca’s had a hugely varied career so far, including working as a journalist at The Observer, featuring as a Food and Drink expert on Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch, writing and publishing multiple books, including her latest best seller: “Solo: How to Work Alone (and Not Lose Your Mind)” and working as a Freelance journalist and author for over 10 years.

We absolutely loved having Rebecca as a 40 Minute Mentor and know you’ll learn so much from her advice in this episode, including:

  • What it takes to have a successful career in broadcasting and what to expect from your initial years in the industry.
  • What solo working actually does to the human mind and how you can combat loneliness with a simple change in environment.
  • And Rebecca’s approach to juggling many competing priorities, without falling into the traps of over-working.

So, whether you’re a Freelancer yourself or you’re navigating a hybrid or fully remote work model, we know you’ll find this episode hugely valuable.
