When you start freelancing, the initial goals are clear: fill your schedule and make a living from your editing work. But once you meet these goals, what's next?

In this session geared toward intermediate-to-advanced freelancers, four experienced editors with different backgrounds and specializations share how they stay challenged, grow in interesting and satisfying ways, keep their creative spark alive, create balance between their work and personal lives, and make their businesses work for them.

Stress-free Scalability
Sagan Morrow

You're happy with how your freelance business is growing. The only problem is you don't know how you can keep going at this pace! You want to grow your business, but you're not sure if you should try to take on more clients (or how you can possibly scale your business without sacrificing your personal life). Does that sound familiar? During this session, you'll learn how to grow your business the stress-free, sustainable way—using anti-hustle productivity methods, upgraded organizational strategies, and a refreshing approach to your business structure.

How to Win the Pricing Game as a Freelance Editor
Suzy Bills

Many freelance editors struggle to decide how much to charge and which pricing method to use. How do you know what the current rates are? What if a potential client thinks your rates are too high? And what if you underestimate the time required to complete a project and therefore will earn less than you planned on, unless you ask the client for more money? This session will answer these and other questions about pricing so that you can feel confident when presenting your rates, overcome price objections, and increase your earnings.

No Sales Experience Required - Clients Say Yes
Rusti Lehay

You too can achieve a 90 percent success rate when you learn how to sell yourself without selling. In this interactive session, attendees will have a chance to retire the elevator pitch and refine their strengths into less than a minute, and leave the listener confident if they ever need your services, you are the one they will call. Your new approach will also plant a memorable image so that they refer you to others who may need you.

…and so much more!
