    An Event Designed For You!

    We’re expecting a lot of awesome sessions throughout the week. Our plan is to organize them into daily themes and along tracks to help people choose what’s right for them.

    Our tracks target different kinds of freelancers, those who are just starting up, those of us who are established, the digital nomad, and the creative artist.

    Each day is broadly themed to bring us through the process of leveling up our freelance experience.

    Intentions + Inquiry


    This is where we set our intentions for the week and for leveling up our freelance experience. Identifying our brand or the name of a new product. We will inquire within ourselves and with each other to better understand what we want to get out of this week and the future.

    Tech + Tools


    Tech Tuesday is all about learning what tools are out there to help your business thrive. Get demos and test-drive the latest and greatest business tools. We’ll have representatives showing off their wares all day.

    Taking Care of Business and Yourself


    Mid-week is where we take on the hard stuff. Taxes, lawyers, incorporation, state laws, contracts, insurance, and all the other terrible things no one wants to bother with but everyone wishes they did. Not to fear! We will also focus on taking care of ourselves and each other.

    Level up


    It’s time to take what you’ve learned and implement it. Today we will put together our pitch, get our headshots, and get confident promoting our best qualities. We are putting the pieces together and working it.

    Make Things Happen


    The end is just the beginning. You’ve leveled up; now it’s time to show off what you’ve got. A full day of connecting, collaborating, sharing, and scheming together! We’re all about relationships over transactions, so today is all about finding your community (and your next gig).
