After six months of working remotely from home on her company, Katy realised she needed company. Eventually she founded a weekly pop-up co-work group called Freelance Folk.
And that's exactly who she found as fellow freelancers heard about it and joined her.

So could you start your own co-working group? Worth catching Katy's tips - what she's learned from her own experience finding her freelance folk.
