The Business of Freelancing, Episode 37: DYFConf Roundtable

By Brennan Dunn

The Double Your Freelancing Conference that took place last month In Norfolk brought a lot of great people together to share information and ideas.  In this episode, 5 of the speakers from the conference join me to discuss what value they got from the conference and their overall impressions.

The Panel:

Mojca Mars – owner of Super Spicy Media, social media consultant

Brian Casel – owner of Audience Ops, content marketing service

Julie Elster –  owner of Just Tell Julie, virtual accounts receivable service

Kurt Elster – ecommerce consultant who helps shopify stores double their revenue

Kai Davis – outreach consultant who helps consultants and product creators increase their traffic and grow their audience

We discuss some of the highlights of the Double Your Freelancing Conference, including:

  • The sense of community we all felt that began with Slack conversations before the conference and continued through the event
  • The fact that the speakers felt like attendees too
  • Looking at attending conferences as an investment in your business
  • Learning that so many people were forward-thinking with their businesses
  • Brennan’s desire to have an actionable conference
  • The speakers that inspired us to take action, apply their direction in some way to our own businesses and strive for productivity and focus
  • a core theme of: be intentional in your business

With the success of the first Double your Freelancing Conference, I’m planning a European version, possibly in June 2016!
