Meetup Groups


Inspired by short, instructional videos, our FREE  facilitated MeetUps will educate, inspire and encourage you to connect with your peers in a safe learning environment.  Our goal is to help you create a realistic plan to launch your freelance or small business.  

Below our list of MeetUp Facilitators, you'll find an evolving array of these videos. While they can be viewed independently, we highly recommend watching them in a small group setting, as there are discussion questions at the end.

NOTE: We are about to host a series of MeetUp groups in the Washington, DC area following our successful Summer 2018 Bootcamp (pictured here.) If you would like to join our mailing list to be alerted of upcoming MeetUps, please click on the "Get Involved" link below.
