Event description
We’ve nearly made it through 2020 and who knows what 2021 has in store for us, so let’s break from the holiday cookies and start prepping!

About this Event

Welcome to Freelancers Union SPARK!

We host meetups for freelancers by freelancers: we invite you to bring your expertise, questions, and elevator pitches to the table, to the workshop and discuss.

Join us on the first Wednesday of every month (and our Facebook group for in-between events) to meet other entrepreneurs in the area, get inspired, and talk about stuff like...

December SPARK:

A new year, a new you right? If 2021 is anything like 2020, there’s a lot to get ready for! Some things we can predict and others tend to be less obvious to Nostradamus, join us this month for these topics:

  • What to do before the end of 2020
  • The economy, taxes, and politics
  • Trends to look out for
  • The health of you and your loved ones

SPARK is built on the premise that we’re stronger together than we are on our own.

Check out our Houston Facebook group to swap jobs, resources, and meet other people who love their "boss!"

The national conversation is live at #FreelanceSPARK. Join us in a whole bunch of cities across the country!
