Join the Freelancer Success Summit April 7-9


Join for free access to the online Freelancer Success Summit April 7-9th, organized specifically to help you through this critical period. There is no pre-registration required and is available for all site users at

For three days, access to 30+ hours of content including online sessions, panel discussions, focus groups, chat, live Q&A, virtual Powwows, free training, giveaways, free access to the video library and more.

To participate just show up to starting at 14:00 GMT Tuesday, April 7. No registration required.

The program has been designed to address both professional issues, such as how we make the best of the crisis period to rethink our business strategy and reach out to new clients, and personal angles, such as how to work on your mental and physical wellbeing through meditation, yoga, and breathing exercises. The two go hand in hand, especially in times of unusual stress. 

And that certainly applies to many people in the current circumstances. This opportunity to reset comes just at the right time, so please take advantage!
