Get ready for this fast-paced workshop covering every aspect of the wide world of freelancing! Long-time freelancers Ed Shems 91 IL and Justin Perricone will guide you through the rewards and potential pitfalls of a freelance creative career. They’ll cover everything from finding clients to creating contracts, delivering concepts, sending a final invoice and other steps that lead to a successful project and a happy (returning!) client. They’ll talk about pivoting during tough times, and you’ll also learn tips for how to sell your services to new clients, the basics of setting up your business, passive income opportunities, and how to have the money conversation without panicking—all so you can enjoy more freelance success!
