Friends Who Are Going
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...


As the year draws to a close, we're coming together to unwind, share a few laughs, and raise a glass to all we have accomplished as a community. Think of it as your official UN-office holiday party!

Join us, and be sure to bring a friend or two-- even if they tend to wear ugly holiday sweaters!

To help us celebrate our BIG wins of 2017 and get motivated to pursue our BIG goals for 2018, we'll be joined by Coach Rahti Gorfien.

Rahti will be serving as our MC for the evening and facilitating some fun games and activites to help us reflect on the past year and get excited about the next! She'll also be sharing some exclusive offerings, including a special rate for her upcoming workshop.

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.

More About Rahti:

For twenty years, Rahti has been coaching independent creative professionals such as writers, artists, healers and entrepreneurs, who are scattered and overwhelmed. Her coaching enables her clients to focus in order to grab the focus of others, so that they profit from their passion, instead of treating it like a hobby because they're always pulled in 50 directions.

Rahti has done workshops and talks for the Sarah Lawrence MFA writing program, The Con Artist Collective, The Actors Connection and Made in NY Media Center, and past Freelancers Union Spark events to name a few of many organizations.

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

Check out our NY 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!
