Event description

Description

Welcome to Freelancers Union SPARK!

***RSVP is required to attend as per building requirements.****
***Attendees MUST BE FREELANCERS OR SELF-EMPLOYED business owners. Absolutely NO SOLICITATION of outside services is permitted.

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...


TAX DISCUSSION FEATURING GUEST SPEAKER, JEFFREY BOWLEY, CPA, MT

“While waiting in line for a coffee at Starbucks I handed the person behind me in line a business card. Can I claim the coffee?”

You’ll have to come to our Freelance Tax Workshop to learn more! Join your local 1099er community on Wednesday, March 1 for our third annual tax-focused SPARK event.

At this in-person event, we’ll discuss important tax-related questions, like:

  • How can I proactively manage my business’s cash flow?

  • What are the tax changes in effect for the 2017 tax year?

  • Can I really deduct expenses like coffee, gas, and my home office space?

Guest speaker, Jeffrey Bowley, of Joseph W. Bowley & Co., L.L.P., is a modern and progressive accountant with a strong background in advising individuals and business at all different stages. He serves locations all over the US with their tax, accounting, and business needs.

There will also be time to network with other freelancers who may be able to offer tips and tricks 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.

PLEASE READ: ***Attendees MUST BE FREELANCERS OR SELF-EMPLOYED business owners. Absolutely NO SOLICITATION of outside services is permitted. IE: attending events solely for the reason to tap into our community to sell your product or services.*** Our events are for community building amongst freelancers and self-employed individuals to build community and Spark conversation about business ups and downs, share experiences, and network with one another. If you feel your services would benefit our freelancers, please contact us so that we can review your information for upcoming talks and/or workshops where you will have access to those attendees. This rule does not apply to regular networking between freelancers such as a graphic designer meeting a photographer at an event and asking about their services with the intention to possibly hire. The rule applies to those who are not freelancers or self-employed soliciting their company's services to our audience. That is strictly prohibited.***




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!


QUICK TIPS:

  • Yes, this event is for freelancers of all industries. We're all connected by our efforts to succeed in the gig economy.

  • There will be complimentary coffee, fruit water, and beer available.
