This group is for Chicago Area Freelancers (be it developers, designers, copywriters, photographers, lawyers, plumbers, whatever). We are all makes and models who get together and have a drink, discuss our work, share tips and techniques, and find full time and contract work opportunities.

We invite group members to submit ideas to talk about. Bring a laptop or a tablet, a sketchpad or an etch-a-sketch. We don't care.

Here's some more resources for our group that keep coming up:

1) Breaking the time barrier. It's a great read and helps people realize how to get beyond just thinking about our skill set as an hourly committment, but thinking about value add: https://breakingthetimebarrier.freshbooks.c...

2) Freelancer's Bible is a great resource for anyone striking out on their own: http://www.amazon.com/The-Freelancers-Bible...

3) Freelancer's Guild (I couldn't find a URL but googling for it brings a bunch of results up).

4) The SBA. It's here to help us. Let's help them help us: http://www.sba.gov/offices/district/il/chic...

That's it!

Welcome and enjoy!
