Welcome to Freelancers Union SPARK!
We host meetups for freelancers by freelancers: we invite you to bring your expertise, questions, and elevator pitches to the table to workshop and discuss.
Join us on the first Wednesday of every month (and online via our FB group) to meet other entrepreneurs in the area, get inspired, and talk about stuff like...
May SPARK: Proposals to Get the Job
It's a competitive world out there, and you want to make sure your proposal cuts through the noise to stand out.
This month's SPARK is dedicated to shaping your proposal to secure the job. We'll cover:
Project budgets that are prepared for the unexpected
Timelines from project start to the finish line
Innovative strategies to help manage your client's needs
There will also be time to network with other freelancers who may be able to offer tips you hadn’t considered before.
Regardless of industry, we all share similar experiences as independent business owners! We try to ensure everyone leaves with insights and connections that will help their business thrive.
SPARK is built on the premise that we’re stronger together than we are on our own.
