Have you experienced the panic that comes along with suddenly not having any—or enough—client work? Do you ever get a sinking feeling when you look at the next few weeks on your calendar and realize you’re going to come up short? Freelancing doesn’t have to follow the much-lamented “feast or famine” cycle—all it takes is some intentional planning. You’ll leave this 90-minute workshop with a clear plan of action for attracting, nurturing, and expanding your ideal client base. Say goodbye to the last-minute scramble for projects, and say hello to a steady stream of work you’ll love.
