Event Location: 
Alloy 26

If you’ve ever dreamed of ditching your boss and setting up as a consultant with a flexible schedule, a roster of interesting clients, and a steady stream of sweet, sweet consulting dollars, this Coffee Connection is for you. We’re going to talk about what it’s really like, including the difference between being a freelancer and being a consultant, working independently versus joining a firm, and more. Bring your questions and hear from folks who’ve been there. Current consultants and freelancers are warmly invited to share their wisdom.
