Topic Detail

57 million U.S. workers freelance. 47% of millennial workers freelance. How about you? Are you pondering freelance PLUS full-time work? Or, are you ready to say freelance IS your full-time work? We’ll explore options, tools, and recommendations to consider a future in freelance.

During the workshop we'll dive into a handful of topics, but specifically:

  • Getting Started
  • Operations
  • Financial
  • Legal
  • Marketing/Promoting
  • Growth / Future (To include "What I wish I would've Known...")

Three-fold growth resulted in plunging full-time into creating her company in 2006.
