Nita Baum founded b*free in 2013 after nearly a decade consulting to large US and global non-profit, business, education and government clients. Freelance consulting transformed not only her work, but her life; more free, healthy, and creatively satisfied, freelancing sustained her financially and holistically. For years, she was a go-to for everyone from the freelance curious! to the well-established freelancer spending countless joyful hours listening, encouraging and sharing practical tools, advice, and referrals to work. Eventually, she realized the commonality across their questions, fears, and practical needs; a light turned on! b*free was born of her joy at sharing the transformative potential of freelancing with people on their own journeys.
