CFC Success: Attendee Becomes Panelist

ilise-new-headshot-bug-1-11It was great to see some CFC veterans on the other side of the country last week at the first Freelance360 event for Freelancers Union in Portland, Oregon: Work, Life & You: Staying Sane and Managing All 3.

Freelance360 event in Portland

Tiffany Estes (second from right), of Whole Brain Creative, who has attended all 6 Creative Freelancer Conferences so far, was chosen as a panelist to talk about how she balances her work and life — which just proves that you never know what will come out of attending the Creative Freelancer Conference. (Next one is the week of May 12, 2014 in Boston. Details here.)

Here are some of the live tweets from the event:

Question of the evening: are there times when you need to fire a client for your own sanity?

Pro tip from @OneHotMamaGuide : “Only work with the people you really think you can help.”

@MarkPowers: Finding sources of passive income is a great way to stabilize your finances & have financial predictability.
