Tweak Your Model - Finding Different Income Streams

12:00 – 1:00 PM Solopreneurs Meeting
Specialization is great for gaining and keeping clients but being able to diversify your services means flexibility and tolerance to workload variations. How do you market your additional services? What other ways do you earn–video, advertising, speaking, instruction, products, fonts, etc.? Bring any questions or comments.

Leah Meilander
Chair of Solopreneurs
I am Freelance Visual Designer and Artist based in Bloomington, MN. I have over a decade of experience with brand identities, designing for print & digital, website design, event design, as well as marketing strategy & planning. Overall, I'm more of a generalist who specializes in brand strategy, graphic design, and web design.

In addition to being a freelance designer, I am also a lettering and illustration artist. A lot of my custom hand-drawn work appears in my client projects.

When I’m not designing or drawing, I enjoy climbing/bouldering, lifting, going to movies, dancing, and hanging out with family & friends.
