How to Scale Your Business And Remain Independent.

11/14/2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Just Because You Work For Yourself
Doesn’t Mean You Have to Work By Yourself.

When: Thursday, November 14, 6:30 to 9 PM
Where: The Oliver Chamblee, 5193 Peachtree Blvd,
Chamblee, GA 30341


Sooner or later, every Creative Freelancer runs into the same problem—how can you take on projects that are outside of your skill set?

How can you grow your business—and make money—on projects that are too big, or too complicated, for you to do by yourself?

You Can’t Do It All By Yourself.

Whether you’re a writer, a designer, or a web developer, you’re limited by the amount of work you can crank out on your own. The secret to scaling any business is to work with others and grow together.

This is more than just finding a partner to work with. It’s about developing the skills to delegate tasks and manage projects.

Don’t Miss the Next Meeting of the Atlanta Freelance Forum.

At our November Forum meeting, we’ll discuss ways to scale your business. Find out how you can take on larger projects (without it becoming your only project), and increase your income without raising your rates.


This month’s presenter is Sherry Heyl. She’s an award-winning marketing professional with over ten years of experience. As the founder of Amplified Concepts, she leverages her relationships with digital freelancers to deliver customized solutions for her clients. You make also know her from the Freelancer’s Union Atlanta Spark.

The name of her talk: “How to Scale Your Business and Remain Independent.”

At the Freelance Forum, it's all Business Casual – until we get down to business.

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!
