From Surviving to Thriving as a Freelancer
About this Event
Hey Freelancers, you’re probably quite stressed right now. You have a project due tomorrow, another one due next week, yet before bed you have marketing, operations, and billing.
This isn’t what you imagined when you heard about “working for yourself”. You imagined no boss. No office. Yet this is too much work outside of the already daunting client work.
You’re not alone. Every freelancer has felt exactly how you’re feeling right now. Stressed. Overworked. Yet you need to lock a client next month.
Fortunately there’s a better way, and that ‘way’ is scaling your freelance business. Scale doesn’t mean selling out and becoming the agency you left. Scale means growth and control. Growth in making more money, and control in having the freedom you were promised when you started freelancing.
In this session we’ll learn how to scale our business from Matthew Mottola, author of the Human Cloud and CEO of Venture L – an operating system where top freelancers run their business. Matthew’s taken a full circle around the freelancing sun. He started as a freelancer, then led companies hiring freelancers, and now helps top freelancers scale their business. He’s seen the secrets behind why leading companies like Microsoft hire freelancers and helped today’s leading freelancers position themselves and execute for these same companies.
It’ll be a jam packed session covering:
Why freelancing is a business
What clients need from you
What your business needs from you
How to go from a freelancer to a “scaled” freelancer
So bring a notepad and get ready to take control over freelancing business.
If you are about to launch your freelance career, we have compiled a list of tips for beginners to move you in the right direction and get you thinking about transitions between full-time and freelance work.
