An Action Plan for Freelancers

ilise-new-headshot-bug-1-11In the latest episode from the Speaker Podcast Series for this year’s Creative Freelancer Business Conference, I talked with Corwin Hiebert, a business manager for freelancers, visual artists, and entrepreneurs, about how to create a Business Action Plan, which is much simpler (and can be better for creative professionals) than a traditional business plan.

One of the questions we covered is about goals: do you need to know your goals before creating a plan to achieve them? And what if you don’t? What if you don’t quite have a clear idea of where you want to go or what you want to grow into? How do you figure out which goals are realistic or viable before embarking on your plan? It’s a bit of a chicken-egg situation.

Listen to how he answers my questions in this taste of his session at the 2014 CFBC/HOW Live, Creating a Business Action Plan. Details and sign up for the event in May in Boston here,
