Eventbrite - How to Be a More Effective Freelancer
As we are all aware, being a freelancer can be a bit overwhelming. It isn’t enough to know your craft—writing, design, photography—you have to know how to run a business as well.

  • How do you find clients?
  • How do you manage your time?
  • How do you keep from going nuts?

Believe it or not, successful long-time freelancers learn how to answer these questions and a whole lot more (or else they wouldn’t be successful long-time freelancers).

What Can You Learn From Them? Let’s Find Out.

At our next meeting of the Freelance Forum, we’ll host an informative panel discussion: “How to Be a More Effective Freelancer.”

Our experienced members will talk about the tips and tricks they’ve learned over the years, and share their vast knowledge about the world of freelance.

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!
