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!
With traffic issues far outside our control and Creative Circus booked in the foreseeable future, we have postponed the April meeting (How to Be a Smarter Freelancer for 2017 – Part 2: The “Nuts & Bolts” Session) a week to Thurs, April 13 at the regular time. Thanks to Shelton Cochran, we have secured a place at PPR – Professional Photographic Resources – on 11th St. Members who have been in the group for a few years recall this as our regular meeting location for several years.
So for April — back by popular demand — The Second Half of Our “Nuts & Bolts” Session! Since we did not get to the last half of our discussion (due to SO MUCH great information in February) everyone wanted us to carry it over to another meeting. VOILA!! Let’s do it!
Once again, we’re tapping into the shared experience of our membership where we will explore Important tips and advice on what it takes to make it from month to month as a successful freelancer. From billings to proposals to what rates to charge, this is the topic for a group discussion moderated, once again, by the President – Jame A. Riley, and VP – Harry Hayes, and PLENTY of input from our talented group!
Let’s share some of what makes us who & what we are – and how to do it the best way possible. Think of questions and bring your success stories to share with others. And don’t forget a handful of business cards and bring friends who might have an interest in the group – or the event. This is a great chance to note who can be a help and be an inspiration to us all as we become even better at what we do and how we offer it.
You do NOT have to be a member to attend. We invite ALL creative freelancers to share tips, glean valuable advice from others and network with other freelance pros!
For Thursday, May 4th, our traditional Cinco de Mayo meeting, we have Gregg Burkhalter, a top level Linked-In expert, who will tell us about the MAJOR changes recently revealed for Linked-In. You’ll discover the fantastic potential Linked-In has for connecting and growing your network — not to mention dramatically improving your new business opportunities! This is a DON’T MISS event from Atlanta’s foremost authority on the #1 Social Media site for Business! Our May event will take place at PPR in Atlanta.
Our members are made up of freelance marketing and creative professionals (designers, writers, video/photographers, marketing consultants, etc.).
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.
