Austin PHP -- Freelancing Isn't Free

  • Jan 10, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Marco Zarate will be speaking about Freelancing or consulting as a great career alternative. Primary subjects will cover how to get started, common myths about freelancing, important business topics, and why expertise in your craft alone isn't enough to be a successful freelancer.  I'll also cite testimonies from other freelancers, and good online resources to learn more about freelancing.

If you are interested in sponsoring the subgroup this month, please get in touch with Logan.

    I know this wasn't the usual tech talk, but lots of useful advice was shared. I personally took away two or three things I had not considered.
