SEPTEMBER’S SPARK: It’s back to school time, and what better month to launch our first ever Freelancers Book Club!

Together, we’ll focus on: Understanding how we actually spend our time - and what’s really important Factoring value into our work decisions Developing a list of action items to maximize our results in minimal time The 4-Hour Workweek has been heralded as “the long-overdue manifesto for the mobile lifestyle,” offering valuable (and practical!) advice on creativity, economic success, and building a life to include both. No time to read? Don’t worry! We’ll distill a few valuable lessons from the book during SPARK on how to prioritize productivity and finding daily satisfaction in what you accomplish. BUY THE BOOK at Chop Suey Books - support your local independent bookstore!! Tim’s blog (including links to his podcast) can be found here. There will also be time to network with other freelancers who may be able to offer tips you hadn’t considered before. Regardless of industry, we all share similar experiences as independent business owners! We try to ensure everyone leaves with insights and connections that will help their business thrive. SPARK is built on the premise that we’re stronger together than we are on our own. The national conversation is live at #FreelanceSPARK.
