Meet the FreeU Mentors

Tammy S. Durden

Hi, my name is Tammy, and I am a Business & Marketing Coach. I am the Founder of Fearless Business Boss. I love empowering others to achieve their dreams and do their passion!


I am honored to be one of FreeU’s Mentors. My #freedomjourney began in 2008. I needed to work again to provide additional family income, however, I was now disabled (from MS & lupus) and had to work from home. I was also homeschooling our 3 children (now grown). I knew I could easily transition my skills (from ‘Corporate Life’) to the virtual world.  


Owning a Business is a JOURNEY, Not a Sprint. I started as a Virtual Assistant who became a Multi-VA agency and eventually created a boutique digital marketing agency.  


I love the freedom freelancing affords you to discover & pursue your passions!


The courses at FreeU were a big part of helping me achieve these goals and dreams by enabling me to up my skills (& my rates). Over the last few years, I also began offering coaching services and was blessed to be able to exit my agency In December 2020 to do coaching full-time.


Success looks different on every person. My success does not look like yours and your success does not look like mine. Stay true to your freelance journey. It takes perseverance, hard work, & consistency but I know you can do it!


I hope I can help you in your #freedomjourney.    

Tammy was very helpful and encouraging throughout the call, providing validation of where I am and the direction I am moving in, as well as great comments and suggestions. Thank you for offering this service!! I encourage everyone to book a session!

Barb Henry

Hi, I’m Barb!


There was a time I was new to all of this. I remember how hard it can be when your budget is low, and you face a steep learning curve.


My journey began in 2001, helping to build a corporate intranet website with nothing but code. Then In 2005, I left the corporate world and became a freelance consultant tasked with many different roles but still building websites whenever I could.


Even though building websites started as just a hobby for me initially, I continued spending all my free time learning everything I could. Eventually, I started freelancing full-time and have never looked back. To this day, I love learning and love what I do.


As an experienced website designer and consultant, I value long-term partnerships with small business owners and freelancers who want to use the web to reach their goals.


I do what I do because I love helping people. And I would love to be your guide on your freelance journey. Wherever you are on your journey, I’m here to help you make the best choices for you and your business by eliminating the confusion. Know that success can be in your future.

I would like to give a shout out to Barb Henry. She brought some light back into a dark scary tunnel! This wonderful lady helped me to regain some belief in my ability to tackle WordPress. There are few people that would have done what you did and I cannot thank you enough.
