This Friday, March 29, I'll be part of The Freelance Exchange's event, Freelance Focus. I'm super excited about it! It's basically everything my coaching clients get over 6 weeks mashed into a 3-hour workshop. So it'll be like drinking from a fire hose! It's presented by myself and a four other expert panelists, copywriter Julie Cortés, social media expert Alexis Ceule, content expert Ben James, and photographer Matt Nichols.
I'm hoping attendees will get a sense of all the moving parts they need to be aware of as a freelance business owner. Sure, big stuff like contracts, ideal clients, and pricing will be covered, but small stuff too, like loneliness, your elevator pitch, and the tone of the words on your website.
This would be beneficial for those who have never freelanced, as well as those who have been at it a while. I mean, some of the things I'll be covering I didn't learn until after I was 20 years into freelancing! It helped me so much to hire a business coach; now I'm sharing some of what I learned with her, as well as the stuff I've had to learn the hard way. Which is unfortunately the great majority of what I know. =)
When we talked about how to price a full-spectrum event like this, we could have opted to charge a bunch. But as a way to give back to our community of freelancers, we chose to price this the same as a Freelance Exchange luncheon: just $20 for members & $35 for nonmembers. We'll even provide coffee, snacks, lunch, and a slew of handouts.
Thanks for reading! I really hope to see you there. Good juju to you even if I don't.
