About The Frolics According To Ellen

Hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey

I’m Ellen “Jelly” McRae and this is the Frolics According To Ellen, the unconventional yet insanely insightful look into the solopreneur life.

I write from my experiences. Everything I share is either:

  • My honest, unfiltered and unapologetic experience - Even if it was my fault, I talk about it

  • The mistakes I’ve made and why it was all a disaster

  • The wins I’ve had and what I know about replicating this success

  • Any one-to-one experiences I’ve had with other people like me - With their permission, of course!

  • Behind the scenes of the day to day life

  • Research and discovery that have helped, or hindered, my success

The following outlines the topics covered on The Frolics:

  1. BUSINESS BASICS: Starting a business, ideas, what you offer

  2. ESSENTIALS: Accounting, Funding, Staff, Business Partners

  3. MARKETING: Social media, Marketing, Website

  4. SOLOPRENEUR: Working for yourself, motivation, solo life

  5. SERVICE: Customer service, promises and expectation

  6. BUILDING: Growing, making money, expanding

  7. PEOPLE: What people think of your job, support from people in your life, work/life balance

  8. BEHIND THE SCENES: Exclusive looks into what I’m working on and processes other businesses don’t want to share

How many times do I post?
