Rebekah Lambert is a content marketing freelancer by trade and an accidental freelance advocate. All she wanted to do was understand her own challenges better and have a beer with someone that got the freelance trials and triumphs. 8 years later, she’s run over 100 events online and in person, answered thousands of freelance related questions, built a sturdy network of resources to build a robust, honest and supported Australian freelance community.
Her content marketing business, Unashamedly Creative, has worked with all kinds of large-scale organisations, start-ups, small businesses and sole traders with product development, marketing, content marketing, communications strategy and community management since 2010.
As the founder of The Freelance Jungle, she spreads a message of community support and stress reduction through focusing on ending the isolation inherent in sole employment.
Rebekah believes stress has a productivity cost. To be better able to support Australian freelancers in stressful situations, Rebekah undertook training as a Crisis Supporter for Lifeline Australia, qualifying in August 2017. She also spent 12 months as part of a joint COSBA and Beyond Blue work group tasked to improve the mental health outcomes of Australian small business. She’s currently working on improving the support and educational levels for freelancers facing life impacting and life ending health and mental health situations.
When she’s not talking business and stress reduction, she’s exploring the wonders of Wollongong and the Illawarra. You can follow Rebekah’s adventures via Unashamedly Creative and via the official Freelance Jungle Facebook group.
