Time is money - Editor Rose Parkin
As an editor in publishing Rose is used to reshaping people's words.
She's also done it with her life.
Cutting out the full time job for flexibility as a working mum.
Stripping out the management role to focus on the work she enjoys.
Reforming her hourly rate and rejecting the projects that won't hit it.
Whilst creating The Freelancer's Cookbook.. well, that's a whole new tasty chapter in itself.
(Who know how she'd edit this nonsense?)
