Please take note that the Creative Freelancer Conference this year will be held in Chicago on June 23 and 24.
Unlike a lot of conferences we've all been to, this one concentrates on the business side of your indie business. It's not filled with lots of "you-can-do-it" encouragements but actually tells you how to do it.
Ilise Benun, the talented head of Marketing Mentor and author of The Creative Professional's Guide to Money, along with HOW magazine offer this two day conference for creative indies.
Ilise starts off the conference with a session on the future of freelancing and explains how you can respond to the changing needs of the marketplace.
There's much more on why indies need a business plan, how to balance work and home life, money management for people who don't get weekly salaries, how to choose a target market, using social media for success, and how to learn from mistakes of your fellow indies -- and your own mistakes.
The conference is $525. However!!! but you can save $30 if you sign up by April 1 -- uh-oh, that's tomorrow -- and you can get a $50 discount if you input
