#FBWBUFFALO Lead Organizer

Hi all! I’m so excited to bring Freelance Business Week to Buffalo, NY. I’ve been freelancing as a side-hustle for years and in 2019, I decided to take the leap of faith and pursue freelancing full-time. I naturally take on more than I should, but I feel like taking on the FIRST freelance-oriented event in our city is TOTALLY worth it! Buffalo is truly on the upswing in so many ways – we welcome culture, our real estate market is HOT, we’re the home to one of the largest startup competitions, and we have been voted the friendliest city. What isn’t there to love? Get your ticket, volunteer and become an integral part of the freelancing community here in WNY.
