I know some of my readers are also freelancers and/or solo entrepreneurs or small business owners. The International Freelancers Day conference on Friday, September 24th and Saturday, September 25th, has some good speakers that I can highly recommend. I wrote about conference on my new blog/website for productive freelance writers — ProductiveWriters.com.

4 Ways You Can Make the Most of International Freelancers Day Training
1. Focus on What You Want, Not What They Want
They want you to tweet it, join the Facebook group, watch all the preliminary videos, etc. Only do what is truly in your best interest.
2. Note the Marketing of the Event
This is a slick launch designed to get as much buzz as possible. Watch — and learn how you can apply the techniques to launches of your own products and freelance writing services. Notice what you like and don’t like about the marketing of the event.
3. Choose Presentations Carefully
Pick the ones that truly interest you and will help your career.
4. Analyze the Presentations Themselves
You either already are or someday likely will be doing similar presentations. How could a given presentation be improved? What about speaking style? Level and quality of teaching?
