Years ago, a very wise man (Dusty Rhodes) told Freelance Forum members that you couldn’t just be a writer anymore. Or just an art director. Or just a graphic designer.
In this day and age, in order to stand out from your competition, you needed to specialize.
Well, the same thing is still true today. And it’s an important lesson that many of our current Forum members haven’t heard before.
At our next Freelance Forum event, we’ll hear from a freelancing expert and career coach. Someone who has helped countless creatives launch their freelance careers, and thrive in the gig economy.
OUR EXPERT SPEAKER:
Ana Gascon Ivey is a freelance content writer, editor and business coach. Through her coaching and consulting company (giggsagency.com), she works with local freelancers and helps them grow their businesses.
At Freelance Forum, she’ll talk about the importance of finding your niche, and also about creating a lead magnet to attract clients.
ONCE AGAIN WE’LL BE MEETING AT THE OLIVER CHAMBLEE
the OLIVER CHAMBLEE APARTMENTS (www.theoliverchamblee.com)
Just north of Brookhaven and south of the Perimeter, The Oliver Chamblee (previously Olmsted Chamblee)
is a creative living space and new Freelance Forum Sponsor. You’ll love its comfy furniture and casual vibe.
It also features plenty of meeting space, free parking, and is within walking distance of the Chamblee MARTA station.
Should be a great event. Hope to see you there!
The Oliver Chamblee is on Peachtree just north of Clairmont Road, on Chamblee Tucker,
in the heart of Chamblee.
Free for members. Guests pay $15. Dress: Blue jeans rule. Business attire is okay if you just came from a big meeting with a corporate client. But otherwise, relax.

No atmospheric pressure here! We network and socialize over sandwiches, spreads or pizza, catch up with new and old friends and introduce ourselves to first-time or frequent guests. Then we settle in for the night’s program and its follow-up Q&A.
Our programs always focus on running a creative business more successfully, with topics that address issues like fees, taxes, law, marketing, selling, interpersonal skills, business organization, technology and more. All to help you work smarter, faster, more efficiently and more profitably. So whether you’re just starting out or you’ve been at this for a while, you get no-fluff information tailored to your needs.
So join us for a meeting. Bring your questions. Hear that hot tip or horror story. And of course, share your own!
