RaketChick on Freelancers Union!
Well, look who's moving up in the world!
Moi is officially a contributor to the biggest community of freelancers in the free world: Freelancers Union.
Never heard of it? What rock have you been living under?
Anyhoo, Freelancers Union is a federation for the new workforce. In layman's terms, it's the independent worker's haven. It believes that all workers should have the freedom to build meaningful, connected, and independent lives --backed by a system of mutual and public support. This is brilliant news for those who live in the U.S. because Freelancers Union offers ways to acquire benefits such as Medical and Retirement despite being unemployed. It provides valuable Resources for Discounts, Contract-crafting, and that mind-boggling thing called Taxes. Neat, huh?
And it doesn't stop there. In the spirit of Networking, Freelancers Union also opens up social venues like the Hives Groups where community members can share resumes, contacts, project leads, inspirational tidbits… damn, even pet photos! Its Spark Events truly creates a spark as freelancers get together in one massive learning summit with experts talking about the ins and out of profitable independence and anything and everything under the freelancing sun.
Sounds incredible so far? Oh, it gets better. Because even if you don't live in the States, you still get to pick up on these learnings from the community website. And, you get to share your own nuggets of awesomeness, too. Like I did. Heeee…
