Successful Freelancing: How to Make More Money, Work More Productively — and LOVE the Freelance Life! Featuring Don Sadler

03/06/2014 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Don SadlerAs freelancers, most of us try to find the right balance between earning a good living, enjoying and being challenged by the work we do, and maintaining a healthy personal and family life. It can be a juggling act, for sure!

Come to our March 6, 2014 meeting from 6:30-8:30 p.m. to hear Atlanta freelance writer Don Sadler share some of the things he’s learned at “the school of hard knocks” during his career as a full-time freelancer. In particular, Don will highlight some keys to the financial side of successful freelancing that have enabled him to seamlessly make the transition from salaried employee to full-time freelance five years ago — and grow his income substantially every year since.

Don will talk about some of the financial and business challenges many full-time freelancers face, including:
  • Project, hourly and other pricing strategies
  •  Ongoing clients vs. one-off jobs
  • Setting, monitoring and attaining financial goals
  • Keeping tabs on your time — and being accountable for it
  • Staying focused on what really matters — and ignoring everything else
  • Marketing your freelance business (including websites, SEO, blogs and e-newsletters)
  • Niche vs. generalist freelancing
You don’t want to miss this practical, hands-on and interactive meeting! Join us Thursday March 6, 2014, 6:30-8:30 at PPR.

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!
