You’ve Come a Long Way, Baby

Actually, it’s designers and creatives who have come a long way (and don’t call them baby) and the gender split is about 50/50 when it comes to freelance. If you ask anyone who has taken the leap and become a freelancer they’ll tell you they love the work, but the everyday minutia can stifle creativity.

Fortunately, if you live in the Minneapolis area, Navitor, AIGA Minnesota and CoCo Coworking are co-sponsoring SoloCamp this Saturday, April 27th from 9-3 p.m. at Coco Minneapolis. This one-day unconference for freelance/solopreneur designers, consultants, writers, developers and creatives offers those necessary skills that freelancers need to bulk up on.
