What’s happening May 14-16 in Boston? The Creative Freelancer Business Conference! So many new and exciting things are happening this year, and you probably noticed the addition of the word “business” to the name. That’s because you’ll be learning serious business skills—surrounded by excitement, inspiration and fun.
On the HOW Blog, Bryn Mooth interviewed me about the evolution of the conference.
How has the conference program evolved over the years, with different topics and different attendees—as a reflection of how freelancing has evolved over the years?
The basics are kind of the same, but now there’s more advanced material for people who aren’t newbies. And in fact, the majority of attendees are not new freelancers. They’re people who realize, suddenly, ‘I have to take this seriously because this is the only option for me now.’
That level of seriousness has evolved in both the attitude of the attendees and the depth of the material. Over the last two years, we’ve heard from attendees that they want to learn from each other. There are fewer “experts” and more freelancers on the program, so the material has come closer to real life.
