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 to meet other entrepreneurs in the area, get inspired, and talk about stuff like...
“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 find out! Join your local 1099er community on Wednesday, March 1 for our third annual tax-focused SPARK event.
At this in-person event, we’ll answer 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?
We are fortunate to have a guest speaker for this event - Ms. Susan Mosley Hebel. Susan has over 25 years of experience in small business accounting and tax preparation. She currenty provides fractional accounting services to small businesses in the area. Let's utilize her expertise and get tax questions answered by an expert!
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.
SPARK is built on the premise that we’re stronger together than we are on our own.
Yes, this event is for freelancers of all industries. We're all connected by our efforts to succeed in the gig economy.
No, this event will not be taped- it's a meetup!
Sometimes we do bring in an expert speaker- we'll announce that above.
