Hi there, I'm Laura Bean

I’m the person behind Creative Little World, and I’m on a mission to help people start and build their dream freelance business.

Whether you want to build a business that works around your lifestyle or family. You want time freedom to come and go as you please. Or, you simply want to support your own well-being.

Freelancing is a great choice and you're in the right place!

Design Your Own Life

The Unfluffy Approach to Freelancing!

Freelancing isn’t easy. Where most people stumble is thinking all they need is a great skill to share with the world. But what you also need to understand is:
  • Finance
  • Organisation
  • Sales
  • Marketing
  • Running a business!
You also need passion, drive and motivation to move your business forward, usually by your own steam. That’s why I created Creative Little World, to give freelancers a helping hand and a practical push in the right direction.

My freelance story: failure, success, and a much happier me!

I began my own freelance career in 2012, and it’s been a rollercoaster ride! I’ve learned what works and what doesn’t. I’ve succeeded, and I’ve failed. I’ve suffered burnout, and I’ve celebrated success. And I’m proud of what I do!

I had a job that made me miserable, I was also a young full-time step mum to two teenagers. I needed a more flexible career that worked with my lifestyle.

So, I began by offering marketing services. I picked up a part-time marketing job to secure a certain level of income a month while I built up my client base. I was going strong, but I made a mistake.

I charged an hourly rate and booked myself solid. The problem? I lost flexibility, I was stretched too thin, and I was unable to increase my income as I had no more time to offer.

So, in 2021 I redesigned my freelance business. I niched to offer content and copywriting services. I started working on a project basis. My more specialised services meant I could charge more, yet free up my time.

I learned to run as a business. I reduced my stress, have more say over who I work with, and I’m so much happier.

I’m excited to help you do the same.
