WELCOME: To my work from home, work/life balance, business process and journey hub: The Frolics

Hello and welcome to the family! I’m Ellen “Jelly” McRae and I’m the curator/writer/overly honest solopreneur behind The Frolics.

This is a space where I share real, raw and often taboo lessons and events that happen when you start, run and build a business.

If you came here for courses, workbooks or checklists, I’m sorry to say, this isn’t one of those platforms.

Perhaps that’s a good thing for you! In my opinion, the last thing the world needs is another course about the same old topic.

This is a community, where it’s all about asking questions, creating conversation and showing you what you want to know.

I want you to feel like you’re part of the process, because you are.

I do this by sharing:

  • 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

EVERYONE IS WELCOME: You don’t have to be a solopreneur to enjoy the business journey and encourage others to pursue business ideas

I created The Frolics not to educate others like me on how to become a business owner or how to start a business.

As I said before, there are endless amounts of people already doing that.

I also don’t claim to be perfect, either.

This is my philosophy: what works for some people won’t work for others.

I would rather share my journey. My aim is to build a community of people who appreciate seeing the behind-the-scenes of their favourite brands and businesses.

It’s like a continuous business documentary, online and in real-time.
