Making your creative passion into a part-time or full-time job takes a lot of courage, know-how, and a constant ability to learn and adapt. In this 3-hour online workshop, we will go over how to develop your creative business or freelance using your creative skills, and the differences between the two. We will discuss how you strategically develop your services or products and plan your pricing so that you are profitable.

In addition, we’ll talk about what goes into day-to-day operations like marketing, sales, project management, client management, and relevant software. Please make sure you come prepared with your specific creative niche or idea that you’d like to build out a business idea/plan for. 

NOTE: While the information in this workshop touches on legal issues, this is not intended as legal advice or as a substitute for the particularized advice of your own counsel.
