As principal of my own graphic design studio, I am essentially a freelancer. For that reason I was an early member and supporter of the Freelancers Union, a mighty non profit organization that advocates on behalf of independent workers across the US. I sit on the Freelancers Insurance Company’s board of directors, a commitment I take seriously.
Freelancers’ founder and executive director Sara Horowitz was just named to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York’s board of directors, a major milestone for the Freelancers Union and its mission to promote the needs of independent workers.
Sara also just published an amazing book: The Freelancer’s Bible: Everything You Need to Know to Have the Career of Your Dreams. The Freelancer’s Bible will help those new to freelancing learn the ropes, and will help those who’ve been freelancing for a while grow and expand. I highly recommend it!
I am so proud of Sara and the Freelancers Union. http://www.freelancersunion.org
