Event Details

We are Cleveland's Freelancers Union SPARK!

Join us and Freelancers Union for FREE to keep the SPARK in your entrepreneurial journey on the first Wednesday of every month with networking and training opportunities (and our Facebook group for further discussion and in-between events).

For Freelancers By Freelancers: Entrepreneurs, artists, musicians, writers, designers...whatever your skills are...connect and network with other independents like yourself.


February SPARKAre you just starting out and have no idea what to charge for your work? An experienced freelancer curious how to prevent client issues from arising mid-project? This discussion will cover setting your rates, hourly vs flat rate and a little about scoping projects.

Since we covered our Tax Workshop in the Fall, feel free to bring any burning questions and we'll do our best to answer them.

Regardless of industry, we all share similar experiences as independent business owners! We try to ensure everyone leaves with insights and connections that will help their business thrive.
