Interested in networking with other creatives in the AIGA Minnesota Solopreneurs community?

Join us for our monthly lunch meeting at The Wedge Table Community Room. We discuss upcoming Solopreneur events, brainstorm and collaborate on business and creative issues. Come enjoy the company of other independent creative professionals in a casual setting with some tasty food available for purchase.

If you’re already a Solopreneur or just thinking about making the transition, we’d love to include you in our conversation. No registration or advanced RSVP is required. Plan to buy your own lunch and/or beverage.

Schedule

12:00-1:00 Solopreneurs Meeting Come meet and network with other independent creatives over a coffee or delicious lunch purchased from our friends at The Wedge Table. Our topic for June is more of the Freelance Fundamentals Series. Our topic for June is Pricing and Raising Rates: Part 2. The topic is so broad we couldn’t cover everything in May – so we are extending the conversation. We’ll further discuss determining rates and pricing structures, invoicing best practices, and the best ways to renegotiate your fees. We’ve had a lot of new Solopreneurs attending and we want to help you avoid the pitfalls that we have experienced, while you utilize the best practices of self-employment or freelancing.

1:00-1:30 Committee Meeting and 2018 Planning

Free to attend, all independent creatives invited
