What we're about

This group is dedicated to starting, running and growing your independent business/career.

We are independent businesspeople and there are over 38.2 million adult Americans of all ages, skills, and income levels. This includes: consultants, freelancers, contractors, solopreneurs, microbusiness owners, temporary or on-call workers—who regularly work independently to build businesses, develop their careers, pursue passions, and/or supplement their incomes. This group is to provide opportunities to learn from one-another.

As the economy regains its footing in 2021 and beyond, independent workers will return to strong growth as they did in the aftermath of the last recession.

Who are independents? We include:

• Millennials - who are growing into prominence as drivers of independent work and the largest cohort in the workforce.

• Baby Boomers - who continue to work well past traditional retirement age and show no signs of departing from the independent path.

• Gen Z - who are developing into one of the most entrepreneurial generations ever.

We offer free webinars, networking, facilitated discussions and more to build our community.

All sessions will be via Zoom until meeting in-person is possible again.

Some of the questions you'll need to answer include:

  • How do you determine if the business is viable?
  • What are the legal ramifications?

Answers to these and other important questions will be discussed during this free online webinar.
