The Heart of Things: Growing Without Losing Sight of Your Purpose
Limited Capacity seats available

What's next? Where are we going? We never thought we would be here, ready to grow and expand - but we are! What an exciting place to be! Often though, when we get to this point of transitioning into the next phase of our business, we aren't sure HOW to do it. We can very easily be so overwhelmed with the pressing needs of today that we skirt the strategy and put our heads down and hope it all turns out ok. This interactive session will allow participants to explore the heart of their work whether they are strict freelancers growing their individual business or looking to expand the concept to serve a broader population. It will help them better understand their goals, how to know what is worth pursuing and what is not, and come away with fresh energy to tackle the path ahead of them.

Processes Will Save Your Sanity
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

As freelancers, we simply don't have the time or resources that full-service agencies have. Don't reinvent the wheel for every new inquiry, proposal and project. Instead, learn to create a repeatable process for every single thing that you do to streamline your services. Confidently guide your clients through so they build trust in your authority and make your freelance gig run like a real business. 

We'll be going over why processes are so important, how to create processes by mapping out your client's journey, and give a real walkthrough of the processes I use for inquiries and consultations.
