International Freelancers Day – Today!

Late notice, but I just found out about this AWESOME event. Today is International Freelancer Day, and to celebrate, there’s a huge online conference going on right now! Best of all, it’s completely free. Really. Nothing to buy, nothing to agree to. Just free. And there’s a stellar list of presenters. I’m bummed I just found out about it (where have I been?)

But it’s not too late, thank goodness. Just go over the website (right now!) and register. Make sure you wait for your confirmation email or you won’t be able to attend. Once you do this, you’ll have access to the live sessions. And if you missed some, like I did, there will be replays available later (assuming you’ve actually registered).

If you’re serious about freelancing, this is the event for you.

Sessions started today, September 24, 2010 at 9:00a.m. EST, and they go on through tomorrow, Saturday, September 25, 2010 ending at 5:15p.m. EST. Speakers include Bob Bly, Peter Bowerman, and more. So head over there right now (the link is in the picture above), and see you there!

When you finish watching some sessions, chime in here to let us know what you thought!

    I missed the teleconference but they have replays if you sign up for free. There’s some good views on facebook for freelancers and stuff like that.

  4. I am also a looser one. Do they organize it yearly? I am disappointed!

  5. I just checked out their website and there is a possibility to watch some of the sessions (or maybe even all of them?). You have to signup, but it’s free. Bob from Cat Illnesses

  11. Mhhh… crap…. this is the first time I read this, would have loved to join the freelancer conference. Perhaps next year.

  12. Awesome. I’ve been looking into freelance writing for some time and stumbled across this post and this conferences and the videos. I must say that Peter Bowerman was probably the most convincing speaker and definitely made me take a serious look at becoming a freelancer. Are similar conferences ever conducted offline?
