Event description

Description

Ever thought about turning your skills, passions or talents into a way of making money? If so being self-employed as a freelancer or consultant may be just what you are looking for.

Sixty-seven percent of employed millennials (aged 18 to 34) want to leave the traditional work structure and become self-employed, according to a 2014 survey by Harris Poll and CreativeLive. However, most of those never actually go onto actually launch their own venture!

From years of experience we understand that there are some key concerns that really hold students and graduates back from a freelance career:

  • concern about a lack of funds;

  • a lack of business experience;

  • the confidence to make it work (or even just the fear of failure);

  • feeling like there isn’t the time to explore it right now.

In this workshop we will explore some of your fears and concerns such as dealing with tax, pricing your services, how to promote yourself and identifying sources of support, leaving you clear to plan your next move.
