Wellbeing working alone


You may be a seasoned freelancer or brand new to it, working for yourself has many challenges and whilst it can be very rewarding it can also be an extremely lonely affair at times. Should you be facing moments of loneliness in your work as an independent this new book Solo: How to Work Alone (and Not Lose Your Mind) from author Rebecca Seal will provide you with tips on how small changes to your habits can lead to bigger gains in wellbeing, positivity and productivity when working on your own.

The freelance workforce has never been bigger - whether it is for the freedom of being your own boss, the thrill of building a business, or due to cold, hard necessity, more of us are becoming solo workers than ever before. But while there is an abundance of advice on success, happiness, business and productivity, no one addresses a crucial topic: how to cope with working alone.

Looking at what we gain but also lose by shifting from the camaraderie and structure of company work to a company of one, this guide picks up where the freelance bibles stop. Solo is for anyone who works alone, whether as a consultant, a freelancer or an entrepreneur, for a few hours a day, or all day, every day and everywhere, with a laptop and a phone. Drawing on a decade of freelance experience and the latest ideas in psychology, economics, business and social science, Rebecca Seal helps fellow solo workers cope with the demands of solitary work, covering topics from how to best shape your surroundings and build a network to how to deal with feeling stuck, how to mitigate the harmful effects of social media, and whether solitude might actually help solo workers to thrive.

This is the book you will wish you had when you started out, and the book you will gift to those at the start of their freelance journey.

Solo will teach everyone how to work alone - and like it.
