Update (August 14, 2014): We are now closing the registration for Freelancing for Beginners 1.0 since we have already reached maximum capacity.
This is our very first workshop in partnership with Manila Workshops and, to be honest, we are quite overwhelmed by your response. This validates that you really want to learn more about freelancing and this will definitely inspire us to craft more workshops for you very very soon. Please stay tuned for our updates.
After months of planning and preparation, I am pleased to announce Freelance Blend’s very first workshop in partnership with one of the most highly successful events companies in the Metro, Manila Workshops, spearheaded by its ever charismatic founder, Ginger Arboleda, our previous guest on the show.
Drum roll, please….The Freelance Blend Workshops: Freelancing for Beginners 1.0!
To register, click here to go to the Manila Workshops page or fill out the form below.
I am super pumped to meet all of you and share my experiences and learnings face-to-face (no more hiding behind the microphone).
Secondly, I am so excited to have as our panelists, the Freelancer Experts: Fitz Villafuerte – Personal Finance Guru and author of the new book, Guide to Investing, Ginger Arboleda – Marketing Expert, pro-blogger and serial entrepreneur, Nica Mandigma – Virtual Administration Expert, co-organizer of Freelance Blend and blogger, and Dandy Victa – Legal Expert and author.
Thirdly, being a freelancer is a lonely profession. What we want to build, starting with this workshop, is a sense of community and belonging among our fellow work-at-home warriors. As such, all participants will have access to the private and exclusive freelancer support group: The Freelance Blend MasterMind Group.
Finally, what’s more important to me, is that you, the budding freelancer, will go home from this workshop feeling energized and ready to face this fun and crazy world of freelancing!
Are you tired of your 9-to-5 job and would like to start your own profession from the comforts of your own home?
Are you struggling to find employment because you got downsized or you just graduated from school?
Are you a retiree who would like to get busy and earn at the same time?
Or are you a stay-at-home parent thinking of ways to augment the household income?
If you are any of the above, then freelancing may be the answer for you!
The Freelance Blend Workshops: Freelancing for Beginners 1.0 is a one-of-a-kind workshop that will help you discover your freelancer personality, learn practical tips on how to earn from home and empower you to turn freelancing into a part-time career or into a full-time freedom business.
