Solo (Paperback)

How to Work Alone (and Not Lose Your Mind)

Rebecca Seal

A self-help guide for freelancers, business owners and company employees working from home - addressing the emotional and mental challenges of working alone

'Kind, realistic and genuinely helpful' Observer

Whether by choice or circumstance, as a freelancer or a company employee working from home, more of us are becoming solo workers than ever before. But once you've made the leap, how to do you actually work well in isolation? And how can you thrive while working alone?

Picking up where the freelancer bibles stop, Solo addresses what we gain but also miss when we shift from the structure of an office environment to the solitary confines of our homes or studios. Blending the latest research in psychology, economics and social science with guided self-examination and more than ten years of freelance experience, Rebecca Seal shows you how to stay resilient, productive and focused in a company of one.

Practical and inspiring, she also explores the idea of meaningful work and helps you define your own success.
