Susan Finch

Founder, Freelance Parenthood

Susan Finch founded Freelance Parenthood after freelancing for 15+ years. Ten of those were spent working as a commercial video editor on accounts for Twix, Wendy's, Nike, Milky Way, AT&T, Sprint, Marriott, NYC Tourism, Lego, Target and other major brands. (My stories were once told in 30 seconds or less).

I switched gears and elbowed my way into travel and lifestyle writing, landing features and travel guide work. While I quickly built my career portfolio, my peers faithfully followed the traditional advice up the corporate ladder and waited for their big break that never seemed to happen. Many of them are still waiting or slowly suffocating in the demands of work + family. In my 15 plus years of working, I also served as a naming consultant, Multimedia Director for a Broadway marketing firm, promo concept writer, iPhone and iPad content, features writer and more.

I'm currently raising a 2+ year old in Atlanta and balancing playdates with deadlines.

Spring Break Ideas - Freelance + Travel
February 23, 2015
With a baby on the way, my husband and I struggled with choosing between taking a family trip with our 3-year-old, or a quick babymoon sans child. We take travel pretty seriously. Our time is limited, and we only want to spend our money and resources on experiences worth sharing. That means saying "no" to a destination just because it's easy or cheap. We want to create meaning around our family trips and create a tradition of valuing experiences over a mindless getaway.
