2021 has been described as the “Great Resignation” as more and more people quit their job to start freelancing and consider it for a long-term career. 60% of new freelancers say no amount of money would make them go back to a traditional job. And 86% of freelancers think the best days of freelancing are ahead. So, let’s start the year on this hopeful note and set you up for success in 2022.


This presentation will tackle the top financial concerns that every freelancer has, from taxes to budgeting, from savings to pricing strategies. Plus, we’ll share valuable strategies for getting paid faster with actionable tactics to enable you to smoothly launch or build your freelance business or side-hustle.

Wherever you fit into the freelancing landscape, we hope this webinar will give you answers to the questions we know you’re asking yourself and help you find your space and financial freedom today and, in the year, ahead.

This 60-minute webinar will include time for Q&A.

All registrants will receive a free copy of the Skills After Service /Lili Freelance Playbook following the event.
