International Freelancers Day 2012

Freelancing is really growing in 2012. I have been speaking to more and more people that are taking the plunge. One of the issues I find that many freelancers come up against though is that it can sometimes be a lonely business to be in.

That’s why I love events like the International Freelancers Day.

This is a global initiative to celebrate independent professionals and the tremendous impact they we on the global economy. It’s an awesome way to connect with other freelancers on this one-day online conference. This year they have put together 13 all-star presenters:
