Expert Series: Freelancing Journey – Pipeline Planning

Thursday, May 19th

DPM Expert Series Presents:
The New Freelance Economy: Build and Thrive as a Freelance PM
A Three-Part Series With Patrice Embry of Project Menagerie

Freelancing! The world where you pick your projects, your hours, and how your days go. You have freedom, flexibility and you are your own boss and you can give yourself all the best performance reviews.

But there are challenges that come with making the leap from being a full-time PM over to the world of freelance, what do you need to know to make this happen, what skills are critical, what mindset do you need to have?

Please join The DPM and Patrice Embry of Project Menagerie as we dive into the world of PM Freelancing with a three-part series to explore the topic, build a framework, get great advice, and learn all the tips from those already in the field.

This three-part series will cover all the foundational details from setting rates, planning your work, staying productive, taxes, and every other question you might have.

Register for Part 2/3: Pipeline Planning & Let’s Talk Money

The biggest challenge is made easier once you learn how to build your own pipeline of work, build your reputation and garner the gigs that fit for your skill set. We will also dive into setting rates, billing practices (and tools!) and other admin planning you will need to tackle.
