Are you your own boss? No idea where to turn for help? This is the event for you.

The 9-5 isn't the only way to make a living. More and more of us are becoming freelancers, drawn to flexible working, a better work-life balance and a greater sense of self-worth - all on our own terms. But once you've decided to strike out on your own, the reality dawns on you: where can you turn for help? How do you deal with a knotty client problem alone? What does "payments on account" even mean?

That's exactly how Anna Codrea-Rado felt when she first went freelance. But now, having documented the hard-won lessons and mistakes made along the way in her popular newsletter The Professional Freelancer, she knows what makes up a successful freelance career. Based on these personal experiences, her candid advice has already helped thousands of people - from florists to accountants - gain the skills, knowledge and confidence needed to thrive. And now you can too.

From finding clients and setting rates, to saving for taxes and dealing with insecurities, this event will help you build a long-lasting career you love. Packed with everyday examples and transformative insights, this event will remind you that although you're now going it alone, you don't have to be alone.
