About Us

Have you heard the buzz? There’s a new university … and it’s changing the way we do business.

Freelancers University offers classes specifically for self-employed creative professionals. Now, designers, photographers, writers, developers and more can pick up where their formal education left off.

We’re talking freelance basics—the ins and outs of starting, running and succeeding in business … all the little nuances of business, marketing and technique that you need to know, yet no one taught you in school. Such as:

  • Taxes
  • Health insurance
  • Contracts
  • Pricing
  • Estimating
  • Portfolio basics
  • Getting work
  • And much, much more!

Class speakers include experts in business, accounting, legal and more, as well as seasoned freelancers sharing their tips and tricks they’ve learned throughout years.

Hands on workshops focus on software training and other continuing education, such as WordPress training, Videography 101, an AP Style refresher, just to name a few.

Those who hire (client-types) can also benefit! Discover what to look for when hiring, where to find freelancers, what to expect, industry standards and more.

So, go ahead. Pick up where your formal education left off. And get schooled.
