Switch: from Freelancer to Entrepreneur

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

Monday 14th March, 2011

3:30pm to 4:30pm (CST)

So you’ve tumbled down the rabbit hole into the world of freelancing and you’re ready to make it a legit career so your friends stop thinking you’re unemployed. But how does it actually happen? Should you take the red pill... or the blue one? Do you have to grow a big agency or outsource work to India? Maybe neither. Designing a successful business takes vision, organization and communication mixed with grit and determination. And our panel guests are in the thick of it—building a business together and ready to share their successes and failures with you.

LEVEL: Intermediate
