Spark DC Freelancers Meetup: Living a 4-Hour Work Week
Welcome to Freelancers Union SPARK! We host meetups for freelancers by freelancers: we invite you to bring your expertise, questions, and elevator pitches to the table to workshop and discuss. Join us on the first Wednesday of every month (and on Facebook in between!) to meet other entrepreneurs in the area, get inspired, and talk about stuff like... SEPTEMBER’S SPARK: It’s back to school time, and what better month to launch our first ever Freelancers Book Club! Our September SPARK will feature interactive exercises from The 4-Hour Workweek by Tim Ferris on maximizing your time and creative powers through cutting out the nonessentials. Together, we’ll focus on: Understanding how we actually spend our time - and what’s really important Factoring value into our work decisions Developing a list of action items to maximize our results in minimal time The 4-Hour Workweek has been heralded as “the long-overdue manifesto for the mobile lifestyle,” offering valuable (and practical!) advice on creativity, economic success, and building a life to include both. No time to read? Don’t worry! We’ll distill a few valuable lessons from the book during SPARK on how to prioritize productivity and finding daily satisfaction in what you accomplish. BUY THE BOOK at Politics and Prose Bookstore - support your local independent bookstore!! Tim’s blog (including links to his podcast) can be found here. There will also be time to network with other freelancers who may be able to offer tips you hadn’t considered before. Regardless of industry, we all share similar experiences as independent business owners! We try to ensure everyone leaves with insights and connections that will help their business thrive. SPARK is built on the premise that we’re stronger together than we are on our own. Check out our DC Facebook group to swap jobs, resources, and meet other people who love their "boss!" The national conversation is live at #FreelanceSPARK. Join us in a whole bunch of cities cities across the country! Quick tips: Yes, this event is for freelancers of all industries.
