Workshop: Bootstrapping Your Freelance Business With Your 9-to-5

Is your career not quite where you want it to be right now?

It's easy to overlook inconveniences or daily annoyances when you should be thankful to still be gainfully employed during this time of economic uncertainty. But we don't have to settle, and we shouldn't. In fact, it's in your wallet and your family's best interest for you to diversify your income and start freelancing in your spare time or finally take the leap and quit your 9-to-5 for the 24/7 entrepreneur life of your dreams.

Ellevate Pittsburgh hopes to present multiple events for professionals of all levels to learn from entrepreneurs and freelancers to start making career moves to meet long-term goals of stability and financial freedom. 

Emily Bezak, former Marketing Lead for the Pittsburgh chapter and current freelance writer, kicks us off as she presents a special workshop: Getting Started: Bootstrapping Your Freelance Business With Your 9-to-5.
