Every week we show the best of the UnderPinned Community, putting a spotlight on two freelancers whose work we believe deserve a special mention.

If you’d like to apply to be one of our Freelancers of the Week and be on our Showcase, make a Portfolio on our Virtual Office and send it to emily@underpinned.co


Alison Grade, Writer and Entrepreneur

I’m Alison Grade – author of The Freelance Bible, a career freelancer and entrepreneur. I describe the work that I do as transforming creative ideas into a business reality. I do this through the films I produce, the freelancers and entrepreneurs I mentor, the companies I advise and in publishing my book. I’m passionate about supporting freelancers to be the best freelancers they can be – it’s not enough to work in your freelancing – doing the work you do – you need to work on your freelancing – my book will show you how.
