What attendees are saying…

Great workshop, especially for freelancers who might not have ready access to some of the great tips Laura has. After the workshop, I was able to organize my files better and develop an administrative system to keep track of everything. Without a doubt, what I learned here improved my freelance business and helped me land more jobs.
