Lessons from the 6% Place

3 June 2013

We’re already gearing up for our third Lesson from the 6% Place, Financial Planning for Freelancers (which will take place on June 13th — RSVP here!) and wanted to share some photos from our first two sessions.

In our first session, attorney Eric Davis of Elliot & Davis, PC explained the legal issues related to running one’s own business and fielded questions from the crowd of 35 attendees.

For our second session, “Cringe-Free Accounting,” accountant Valerie Voss from Wilke & Associates explained everything from entity selection to deductible business expenses to our crowd of 28 freelancers.
