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...
TIS THE SEASON!!!
HOW TO MAKE THE MOST OF THE HOLIDAY SEASON
Worried about having to put your business on hold for the holidays? Worried there's too much to do and you've got no time for yourself?? There are so many ways we can utilize this time to grow and improve!
At this Spark, we’ll discuss how to:
Take the time to cultivate deep relationships with our clients
Make a plan for improvement and set goals for the new year
Share strategies for saving money while spending on gifts
Actually take time off
The holiday season is time to relax and enjoy the fruits of your labor, but let's face it, we never fully take time off from our business. That's part of being an entrepreneur! We'll talk about how you can balance rest and famly time with planning and strategizing for your business going into the next year.
And because it's the holidays, we'd like to celebrate the season. As always, Spark will provide snacks but we'd like to turn this into Spark's holiday party with an old fashioned pot luck. When you confirm your attendance, let us know what favorite dish you'd like to bring. We'll also have a white elephant gift exchange for those that want to particiapte, nothing more than $10. Please let us know if you plan to participate in this as well, as we want to make sure all participants receive a gift.
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.
