We were so proud to have been part of the Los Angeles Design Festival once again this past June. With well over one hundred guests huddled in at the ROW in downtown Los Angeles, we were heart-warmed by the record breaking attendance of our 'Freelance 101' event. Our four freelance experts shared their own accomplishments, struggles, tips and tricks for other freelancers seeking inspiration and support.

We had a great time picking discussion topics out of a hat sent in by our community, such as "How do you establish trust with new clients and convince them of your value?", and "How do you navigate being unavailable or overbooked for a project or client that you want to work with?"
Though our panel was short, we loved hearing everyone continue the conversation and mingle while enjoying the event space after the panel. We were so thankful to have had such a great diversity of skill sets and knowledge being shared by our panelists and guests.
Our community experienced the type of support and collaboration that makes the creative world feel more like home. We hope to see everyone at our next event!
