Young, Wild & Freelance: Money, Money, Money

December 12, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

We’re back with the final #YoungWildFreelance event of 2018! Here’s one that no-one wants to talk about: MONEY. Oh yes, it’s time to talk finances. In this special Young, Wild & Freelance event, we’re going to be talking about all the nitty gritty of finances in self-employment, including setting your price, managing your accounts, cash flow and chasing payments. This event will include discussion on:

– How to structure your finances as a freelancer or business owner

– Knowing your worth & value pricing 

– Tax returns and accounting software

– Bookkeeping as a freelancer

– Managing cash flow

– Chasing late payments (UGH) 

– Legal rights as a freelancer

Expect honest, open chat and a chance to meet like-minded freelancers over a glass of wine & some mince pies. As with all our Young, Wild & Freelance events, there will be an intimate break-out discussion at the start of the night in small groups, addressing all the important questions about your finances, followed by a special panel talk and chance to ask questions in a Q & A. This month’s panel talk, hosted by Angelica Malin, Editor-in-Chief of About Time Magazine, will focus on finances, money and cash flow. Expert panelists include:
