Ready, Set, Freelance!

Get ready for this fast paced workshop covering the wide world of freelancing! Creative Relay co-founders and long-time freelancers Ed Shems (91 IL) and Justin Perricone will be your guides as you navigate the rewards and potential pitfalls of a freelance creative career. They’ll cover everything from the first conversation, to signing a contract, to delivering concepts, to sending a final invoice and other steps that lead to a successful project and a happy (which often means returning) client. You’ll also learn tips and suggestions for the first meeting, the basics of payments and revising contracts as work progresses and how to deal with difficult clients. You’ll become more confident in treating your freelance work like a business and in your ability to work with clients while enjoying more success.
