Audrey Adair created The Scope to provide resources and community to freelancers.
Spending nearly six years as a full-time freelance communications consultant, Audrey was constantly asked for advice on self-employment from her friends and family. She wanted to provide a space for freelancers to find answers that help support and grow their independent businesses - so The Scope was born.
Whether you’re a side hustler, full-time freelancer or gig economist - the topics we cover and the resources we provide are aimed to help you confidently take on your version of freelance life.
The Scope is a space for learning, connecting and working towards your personal goals.

We’re always welcoming fresh content and would love to hear from you! But before you send us your pitch, make sure you’ve looked around the site and have become familiar with the types of content we share.
We’re not about fluff of clickbait and want to provide our readers with unique, personal stories and posts that answer the questions people want… scratch that, NEED to know. Remember, we provide community and resources to freelancers and the self-employed. So if your story idea fits into either of those categories, you should be in pretty good shape but here are few topics we’re actively searching for:
Expertise in your field: We’re always looking for people with knowledge in making freelance life a little easier. If you’re a tax pro with tips on what we can write off, a marketing expert with tips for discovering new clients on social media or a lawyer who can share guidance for understanding contract lingo - we’d love to hear from you! Example article
Taking on the first year: Lessons learned, how you landed your first client, tips for managing savings - you name it! If it’s something that happened during your first year, we want to hear about it. Example article
Community spotlights: We love sharing stories about the self-employed journey! If you've been in this entrepreneurial game for awhile now or have taken a unique path to creating your dream job and have some knowledge to drop, send us a note. Example article
Reviews: Want to share the best ways to make the most out of Trello or review a photo editing app that’s changed your freelancing life? Send it our way. Example article
