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 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...
HOW TO MAKE THE MOST OF THE HOLIDAY SEASON
Worried about having to put your business on hold for the holidays? Worried there's too much to do and you've got no time for yourself?? There are so many ways we can utilize this time to grow and improve!
At this Spark, we’ll discuss how to:
Take the time to cultivate deep relationships with our clients
Make a plan for improvement and set goals for the new year
Share strategies for saving money while spending on gifts
Actually take time off
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.
SPARK is built on the premise that we’re stronger together than we are on our own. Check out our LA Facebook group to swap jobs, resources, and meet other people who love their "boss!"
