Description

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...

OCTOBER’S SPARK:

Your brand represents what you can offer for a potential client. A strong visual brand will build trust and credibility. Through brand consistency and clarity, clients will know what to expect every time they work with you.

October SPARK will feature an interactive discussion and workshop on how to sharpen your brand. Whether you’re starting out, refocusing your business, or thinking about growth, you should ask yourself key questions about what your brand is communicating.

Together we’ll focus on:

  • Articulating your brand effectively and consistently

  • How to ‘sell you’ rather than your services

  • Where to invest in building your brand

There will also be time to network with other freelancers who may be able to offer tips you hadn’t considered before.

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 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 cities across the country!
