Many freelancers begin with few contacts, and no understanding of how to grow them. They often struggle with the legal complexities of contracts, the complications of tax and accounting issues, and the steep learning curve behind business negotiations. Unlike employees, freelancers have to be their own marketing department, accounts department, legal department, and creative department.

In the face of this challenge, many flounder and panic.

Freelancing 101 serves as an intensive training platform for freelancers to overcome these issues. The workshops create interaction with peers, advice from the successfully self-employed, and feedback from the companies that employ their services. Each workshop brings opportunities for freelancers to present the issues they face, and to grow their networks.

What They Say


What They Say


What They Say

Everyone loved it. Read what the trainers and attendees say.

 
Overall the sense is I get that there is a little bit less distance between everybody. The first year it was almost as if it was a press conference, everyone was representing their company and everyone was on guard. It’s become more relaxed every year. People are more willing to come out with their own stories and ask what they have got boiling down inside.
— Ryan Ong (Super Freelancer / Writer)
I am just starting my journey to become a freelancer. I actually am in the midst of setting up business aspects of things. I think something that a lot of us struggle with. We can do our work, but I don’t know how to do accounts. I don’t know the legal terms. I don’t know how to write codes or respond to clients or how to position myself and everything. I think the bootcamp really helped me a lot and cover a lot of things.
— Lynette Tan (Freelancer)
From the bootcamp, I think I got to meet a lot of people, a lot of creatives. Working freelance or working solo doesn’t give you the opportunity to meet so many people all the time. You working from home and you don’t get to network, this was actually offline networking that was great. You also get to know that the struggles you are facing, the challenges you are facing, the doubts that you have about your occupation on how to go forward.
— Puja Chandra Nanda (Freelance Writer & Researcher)
To date, we have more than 80 freelancers graduated from the bootcamp, in fact many of the participants are still keeping in touch with us, whether it is working on our clients’ projects or working on projects for ourselves. My wish for the bootcamp is that we hope to slowly evolve it to benchmark courses for all freelancers to attend before they actually start their freelance career.
— Jayce Tham (Chief Business Women at CreativesAtWork)
I think it is good as it is more one-on-one, instead of everyone there just listening to the lecture. Interviewers get to take a look at your portfolio and see what is good for you to improve, what is good for you to change so that you get more jobs.
— Kelvin Chow Jun Jie (Web Development)
This year is very exciting because even as I grow, my mindset changes, even the things we learn grow. What is exciting is that I get to share that is as I update as well. That is becoming exciting. Today people got it very quickly. It is always a brand new concept planted in people’s mind and it takes a while to grow on you. But everyone seems to have gotten it, I am very excited to see what happens.
— Kevin Ou (Development / Executive Producer of The Lumenere Group)
