This year — 2012 — marks the 5th anniversary of HOW’s Creative Freelancer Conference (June 21-22 in Boston) and I’ve attended every one since HOW launched the event with co-founder Ilise Benun of Marketing Mentor and Peleg Top in 2008.
This year … this year will be different for me. In addition to helping Ilise with some small hosting duties, I’ll be a full-on, official, taking-notes-and-paying-attention attendee. That’s because this week marks my first anniversary as a creative freelancer myself.
Having spent virtually all my publishing career with HOW, and having learned so much from HOW’s efforts to help creatives run successful practices, I figured I had this freelancing thing figured out. I was wrong. I have a lot—a LOT— to learn.
Mostly, though, I’m looking forward to collaborating, celebrating (and, yes, commiserating) with my fellow creative solopreneurs. This can be lonely work, y’all, and sometimes just a little camaraderie helps.
