Preparing For and Overcoming a Break In Income

Whether in the form of an illness, caring for a loved one, or the loss of a loved one, sometimes life steps in and you need time away from work. What do you do when difficulties enter your life and you can no longer bring in any income?

Our host, Sarah Li Cain, speaks with Laura Gariepy about the recent loss of her father, how it affected her freelance career, and the kind of relationships she developed that allowed understanding with her clients. Laura also shares about the safeguards she had in place that allowed her the time away and what things are like now that she is working again.

  • How her father's illness affected Laura's outlook on money vs family
  • What it was like navigating a return to work during the pandemic
  • How using LinkedIn has been profitable in gaining clients
  • The biggest lesson she has learned about her business and herself
