Young freelancers & entrepreneurs: a magazine concept, part one.
I know I’m not alone when I say that I’m bored by the moody models in magazines, the focus on ‘ten crazy sex positions’ instead of ‘ten ways to make your smart idea a reality’ and how there doesn’t seem to be a common denominator between high-end fashion and geeky gadgets in the glossies that fill the shelves.
I want a magazine that inspires me to do more: to let my far-fetched career plans to take shape and to look good while doing it. I want a magazine that tells me ‘You can do it’ despite not having the resources yet. There are some magazines out there to cater to the thirtysomething whose start-up is taking the world by storm, but what about those of us who are fresh out of Uni and can barely pay the rent?
I want to know how other people my age have managed to be their own boss and to be part of a community that shares, motivates and supports. I wonder if you do too?
Whether you’re a budding entrepreneur, a cashier by day but freelancer by night or simply just interested in reading something fresh, I’d like to hear what you have to say. Below is part one of a survey I’m carrying out to get an idea of what you want and what position you’re in.
Step 1: Take the survey. It’ll take five minutes.
Step 2: Subscribe to my blog (top right-hand corner) so that you’ll know when part two of the survey is ready. Part two will be more orientated to the magazine itself, so you’ll have the chance to have an input.
Part 3: Please share the survey with your friends who want to be freelancers and entrepreneurs. I hope that the end product will be something both you and they want to read, but you need to tell me what that is!
Many thanks! Here’s the survey: Click here to take survey
