Freelance vs. Captive: Making an Informed Decision

posted in: Blog, Upcoming Meetings | 0

Ever thought that you might be cut out for the glamorous, high-paying, and rather bohemian lifestyle possible with a freelance existence? Not everyone is suited for freelance work…but neither is everyone suited for captivity. This one-hour presentation will identify the pros and cons for captivity (AKA “fulltime” or “permanent” employment) and freelance work, then show the audience members how to identify their personal employment goals and how to fit these into the pros for each career path. There will also be suggestions for those who haven’t tried freelance work yet on how to get started freelancing on the side, something that could be of great value in the New Depression.
