"Life in the Freelance Lane" Testimonials
Since 2015, a stalwart group of IWOC-ers has been traveling to various venues in and and around Chicagoland (libraries, universities, career counseling centers, writers' hangouts, Chicago's City Hall, American Writers Museum), presenting what is now the acclaimed, "Life in the Freelance Lane: Business Basics for Succeeding in the Gig Economy."
Filled with tons of common sense, practical pointers on the business basics, challenges, opportunities and benefits of a freelance writing career, the feedback we continue to receive is our greatest reward. It fuels our desire to continue to reach out and help those who either wish to turn their writing hobby into paying gigs, or want to know how the heck to make that seemingly mysterious transition from full-time work to a freelance career -- and succeed at it! The proof of the value of these presentations is, as they say, in the pudding. Or, more precisely, in the testimonials.
Following is just a sampling of the many positive comments we'd like to share.
