About this class:

Sharon opened Ink + Mortar four years ago, and along the way gathered quite a solid foundation of what not to do. Expanding on her talk "Before You Quit Your Day Job", she'll be sharing the behind the scenes advice on how she started her freelance or design studio business and how you can take the leap as well. 

We'll be covering lists of things to do at your current day job, what programs and methods we've tried and now use day-to-day, we'll discuss both processes and ideal clients, how to find your niche and then we'll have an open forum for any questions you have about running a design business.

You'll leave the class with:
• a packet of resources we use to run the business
• key tips on first steps to starting things or fixing problems you might already have
• ideas for building your ideal client base
• additional sources we love for design business advice: books, podcasts, blogs, etc.
