What we're about

Get ready for an inspiring networking and mastermind event with motivated business owners!

We are Jennifer Stewart and Shelly Collins, fellow self-employed entrepreneurs and owners of Gateway Productivity. Self-Employed St. Louis started as a LinkedIn group in 2009 as a way to connect self-employed professionals, freelancers and solopreneurs who often feel isolated and frustrated working in a vacuum. Since then, we've begun meeting monthly.

Our meetings are phenomenal! What we love about this group is that everyone comes ready to share their challenges and ideas. Yes, there's networking involved, but people also learn so much! Everyone walks away with actionable ideas you can implement immediately.

Each meeting includes time for you to get to know the other attendees, as well as a speaker, hot-seat coaching on common self-employed issues, or masterminding as a group. It's a great way to be inspired and supported in your venture.

If you are:

A self-employed professional

A freelancer in the creative industry

A solopreneur

A small business owner with 10 or fewer employees

Come and join us! We look forward to learning about your business and helping you succeed.
