Friends Who Are Going
Event description

Description

Thinking about going out on your own? Before you do, join veteran consultants Andrea Fuller and Cecilia Calvo of MindFarm for wine, bites, and lessons learned on how to turn your expertise into a thriving consulting practice.

Based on our experiences (and, ahem, mistakes) and working with dozens of other successful consultants, we can help you understand:

1) The real differences between being a consultant and employee (and how rewarding being a consultant is when you make it work)

2) The need to market and brand yourself

3) How to manage the glamorous "back office" functions

4) The real deal on taxes

5) Time management when you need to balance new business development, doing the work, and managing the business

Space is limited so we can make this discussion interactive and helpful to individual situations. This workshop is intended for those considering becoming consultants or those brand new to consulting.

The event will be held at Hera Hub, a co-working space for women entrepreneurs and a light dinner is offered. Hera Hub is conveniently located 3 blocks south of Friendship Heights Metro on the Red line and there is ample off street parking that is available from 6:30pm. (Please note: Parking on Wisconsin Avenue is metered until 10pm)

Driving: Located between Garrison and Fessenden Streets, NW, just 3 blocks south of Western and Wisconsin Avenue intersection at Friendship Heights.

Parking: Residential street parking in the neighborhood for 2 hours (check signage), metered parking on the street in front of Hera Hub DC on Wisconsin Avenue (payment required until 10pm), and in the lot behind the building. Parking fees are $4 for 1 hour, $7 for 2 hours, $10 for over 2 hours to all day. Payment is by credit card only. Lot entrance is on Fessenden Street, NW, last entrance on the right, marked 5028 Wisconsin Avenue.
