SHOW NOTES

This is the first of three mini episodes of our chat with Frankie Tortora, a freelance graphic designer, mum of two and founder of Doing It For The Kids — a community by and for freelance parents. Stay tuned for the next two episodes over the coming week where we talk about all things community, creativity and parenthood. 

Frankie is also co-host of DIFTK The Podcast with Steve Folland, recipients of Bronze Best Business Podcast at the British Podcast Awards 2020. 

Our conversation took place in August before we knew if the kids were going back to school and between the ever-changing lockdown restrictions in Canada and England. 

THINGS WE TALK ABOUT: 

  • Sharing the drudgery and being real as a freelance parent
  • Parenting and attempting to work from home during a pandemic
  • Switching back and forth between unpaid and paid work
  • A podcasting tech glitch
  • Why you need firm email autoresponders
  • Setting hard boundaries with our time and availability
  • Adjusting our plans for 2020–2021 and letting it go
