Event 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: Sharpening your brand to attract better clients… with less stress

You want more customers--and better customers. But it’s hard when you’re an entrepreneur wearing so many hats! How do you grow your business faster? And how can you boost your efficiency and reduce the stress of business development?

Having mentored hundreds of businesses, Evan Horowitz knows how quickly you can have more of the clients you want. He’s discovered and mapped out the common traps that hold savvy entrepreneurs back. When you overcome these traps, you’ll dramatically increase the effectiveness of the precious time you spend on marketing.

If you're ready for the number and quality of clients you want, with less stress, you won't want to miss this workshop.

Guest Speaker: Evan Horowitz, Entrepreneurial Growth Hacker

Evan Horowitz has helped countless entrepreneurs break the mold and beat the odds, to grow way faster while sleeping better. His clients are disruptive pioneers who don’t have time for the normal “best practices” and want the harder and more rewarding shortcuts to success and fulfillment.

Evan has a fancy old world resume with degrees from Stanford and Harvard. But what really gives Evan his edge is the world’s first scientific brain hacking methodology, of which Evan is a student and a trainer. After leading businesses at Macy’s and Samsung, he started his own consulting firm, and later added a musical marketing agency.

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.
