Hey, How'd You Create International Freelancers Day, Ed Gandia?
This author's brainchild became a global event set on strengthening the skills of freelancers- October 24, 2011
After parlaying his sales career into a copywriting business, Ed Gandia learned all the nuances of going solo, from setting up an accounting system to dealing with problem clients. But that wasn't enough for this suburban Atlantan -- he wanted to help other people run successful businesses, too.
That's why Gandia launched the International Freelancers Day along with Steve Slaunwhite and Pete Savage, co-authors of his book, The Wealthy Freelancer. The event, held Sept. 23, brought together approximately 5,000 freelancers globally who got to watch more than 16 free presentations online. Now in its second year, the free day of webinars gives freelancers the wisdom and tools they need to flourish.
