A Chat with Alexandra Fasulo of The Freelance Fairytales (#4)

Alexandra Fasulo is a freelance writer and editor, poet and digital content producer. She is the founder of The Freelance Fairytales and is an enthusiastic advocate for supporting, encouraging and empowering creatives in the gig economy. We sat down with Alexandra to learn more about her work, her story and her vision.

How did you get into freelance writing, poetry, and digital content production?

I always had a passion for the written word. It’s something I’ve had an affinity for since childhood. My path to becoming a professional started when I had the opportunity to intern at The New York Times’s newsroom in 2014. I was exposed to an intense environment, constantly learning about the power of storytelling in journalism. After that experience I knew I had found my calling and I pursued freelancing as a way to travel, explore and write.

What inspired you to start The Freelance Fairytales?

I’m so passionate about telling stories, it’s no surprise I started a platform dedicated to helping other creatives in their professional lives. I was inspired to start The Freelance Fairytales because I wanted a way to bring together support, resources and advice for creatives in the gig economy. I wanted to create a safe space for both experienced and aspiring freelancers to talk, ask questions and use my platform to build community. The Freelance Fairytales is about helping people to learn, grow and transition with ease as gig professionals.

What are some tips or resources you can give to new freelancers?

Top three tips for new freelancers –

  • Manage Your Time: Freelancing can be a common misconception that you can complete all your work from wherever and whenever you want. That is not necessarily true. Since you are responsible for your own productivity, you need to set a regular schedule and commit to it.
  • Create a Portfolio: A well-crafted portfolio website can be a powerful tool for getting new client work. According to a recent survey 70% of freelance leads come from sources like LinkedIn and personal websites. Having a portfolio is essential for standing out to potential clients and showing your work.
  • Network: Getting to know other freelancers in the same industry can be an excellent start. Connecting with other professionals and attending virtual meet-ups and conferences is also a great way to expand your network and find new opportunities.
