After attending this webinar, you will be able to start your own freelance business. You’ll know how to register for a business name and HST number, how to start marketing your services, and what to track for basic bookkeeping and taxes.

Being a freelancer is much more than working in your pyjamas. For the privilege of setting your own hours, you also have to be your own boss, the sales team, the office manager, the bookkeeper, as well as the employee. Learn how in this seminar, which outlines the basic steps to your dream job.
