3 HANDS-ON WORKSHOPS ON TAXES, RATE SETTING AND BUSINESS PROCESSES + SOCIAL | 5:30 - 7:30 PM

Calling all freelancers, contract workers and solopreneurs!

Are you new to freelancing and need some advice and resources to get you rolling? Or are you a veteran freelancer looking for a refresher and some new tips and tricks? Do you have a bunch of questions about how to set your rates, how to get paid on time, taxes, business planning or tech tips?

Whether you're a semi-veteran freelancer or just starting out, Freelance Contracting 101 is a series of three two-hour workshops bringing together new and seasoned independent workers to learn best practices from experts on how to survive and thrive in the new world of work.

We have teamed up with Vancity to offer these hands-on workshops that will focus on essential skills, tools, tips and resources to be more efficient, effective, healthy and successful in your freelancing work.
