Event description

Description

Hold the phone. Our next meetup is OOOOON!


Self-employed parents from across the land are assembling once more for hugs, tea and chat. Whether you're a freelancing newbie, business-owning veteran or are thinking about going it alone since having kids, then come on down.


There'll be informative chatter, inevitable over-sharing and tip-top advice from some super self-employed parents from the Doing It For The Kids community, followed by plenty of time for mingling and getting-to-know-you fun.

This time, I've got not one but two ideas to help you battle through any networking-related anxiety so fear not folks! You'll definitely make connections and maybe even some friends too.

This lovely lot have agreed to talk to us for a bit. Between them they'll be covering some insanely useful stuff including self-care, productivity, entrepreneurship and the importance of contracts.


*drum roll please*

About Doing It For The Kids


Doing It For The Kids is an online (and increasingly offline) community by and for freelance parents trying to make flexible working work. Whether it’s high fives for securing a new client, commiserations for yet another bout of chickenpox, or collaborating with one another on new projects, products and events — through the collaborative blog, Instagram page, Facebook Group, podcast and meetups, DIFTK is proving that all sorts of good shit can happen when freelance parents are given the opportunity to connect.
