I am not only a member, I am the Organizer for the Los Angeles Freelance Meet Up Group.We meet once a month in LA at Blankspaces and we either have networking mixers or special guest speakers. The speakers will talk on any issues that freelancers and solopreneurs find important. We have had reps from Constant Contact, NASE, Edward Jones Financial Services, a CPA about business structure and a professional Organizer. Very casual environment and great place for new friends and resources. It's free to join! So click on the badge...
I have created an internet radio show for freelancers and solopreneurs as well. This is where I interview guests that are not located in Los Angeles, or can't come to a Meet Up. Past interviews include the Founder of Freelancer Union Sara Horowitz, Chaz Rampanthal from LegalZoom.com, Ilise Benum from Marketing Mentor, Michelle Goodman author of "My So-Called Freelance Life" and others. You can listen live during a show, or come by anytime and listen through your computer or download a podcast. You can also find the podcasts in ITunes! Check out my recent shows...
