Have you ever thought about going out on your own? Maybe starting a business or becoming a freelancer? Leo Dion of BrightDigit will discuss what should be done to get started as well as how what skills you can nurture to become a successful freelancer. We'll talk about what is needed to manage your money, your reputation, and your time. If you are thinking about freelancing or just curious about what freelancing involves you’ll want to check this out.

About Leo
Leo Dion runs BrightDigit, a company in Lansing which specializes in development in the Apple space: iOS, macOS, and watchOS. He lives in Lansing MI with his wife Betsy and 5 kids and currently run two podcasts: on Apple stuff and businesses, and a productivity podcast for non-perfectionists.

NEW - Book Swap
Bring a book, take a book as needed/wanted. Book must be technically related or professionally helpful in some way. If you want to add your recommendation to a sticky note to help someone else decide whether they should read it or not, that'd be great too.
Please choose one to begin with - if there are more towards the end then feel free to take multiple home. This is a great opportunity to pick up something new and share a book that's really helped you!
If this is a success, we can continue it! Books will be outside the session and should not interfere with our speakers time at all - so please check it out before or after the session.
