While we’re currently not doing in-person workshops, we have a video course in the works! Stay tuned.


Join us to dive into all things freelance and small business! In this 4 hour freelance workshop we’ll get super transparent on numbers and tactics. How to start your own business, grow your client base, and promote yourself without selling out or starving. We’ll have worksheets, take-home resources, a presentation, low-risk/low-cost tips and tricks, personal anecdotes, and 30-45 minutes of open Q&A at the end (so get your specific business questions ready!).

Students, freelancers, entrepreneurs, aspiring entrepreneurs, business owners, and non-designers welcome. Feel free to bring a laptop or tablet, and definitely bring something to take notes with. We’ll provide workbooks (plus some goodies and adult beverages), but if you want even more on how to start and run your business, grab our book as an add-on (discounted when you buy with the course) before adding this course to the cart. This course is great for anyone who has just started a creative small business (freelance is small business party of one), is interested in starting their own creative business but doesn’t know how to start, or is wanting to do an audit on their creative small business to see how they can improve their systems and procedures. Photographers, motion designers, graphic designers, illustrators, and creatives of all types will benefit. We’re not focusing on any specific creative industry, but rather how to best run your operations.


Things we’ll cover:

  • Defining your services
  • Creating a budget
  • Setting your pricing for hourly and flat rate jobs
  • What to include in a contract
  • Promoting yourself / growing your audience
  • Getting clients
  • Pitching a client
  • Presenting proofs
  • Workflow and planning
  • Invoicing and accounting
  • Helpful resources, tools and apps
