Independent Business Meet Up

Mar 11, 2024

11:30am – 12:30pm CT

Independent businesses are the backbone of the U.S. economy and the heart of their local communities. But they’re often operating without the protections afforded to big businesses and corporations. The most important is the right to get paid. After all, freelance isn’t free. HoneyBook and the Freelancers Union have teamed up to bring independent business owners together to discuss advocating for pay protections at the state and local level, business best practices to avoid unreliable clients, and simply to connect over the challenges and rewards of building your own business. Join us!
