Do you know your rights are as a freelancer, and how to protect your work?

June SPARK will workshop basic skills and strategies to help you protect your work:

- Getting paid on time

- Protecting yourself with a solid contract

- Maintaining control over your work

- Troubleshooting client issues

- Resources to help freelancers

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.
