How to Build your Freelance Career: Everyone's Doing it But No One is Talking About It

June 11, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Want to grow your side gig? Go freelance? Eventually add an employee to your business? You don't know what you don't know (or maybe you do know what you don't know). You know? Join us and others in your shoes. Learn from industry experts including insurance, legal, and HR on what you need to keep in mind. Then hear from a panel of people who have traveled the path of side gig to freelance. We hope you'll walk away not knowing a little less.
