During the last little while I have enjoyed chatting to new people about my role as a Civil Celebrant. I have been visiting local businesses and people in related fields to share my business cards, postcards and flyers. Doing this has given me an insight into the world of working freelance as a sole trader. It takes a lot of confidence to approach strangers and then to articulate with clarity your services, goals, values and experience. I must say though that I have been overwhelmingly met with interest and support by all those who have given their time to engage in authentic and warm dialogue. This has been very encouraging and I'm so grateful to everyone I've met.
