2020 has flipped us on our heads. As a small business owner or freelancer, you may be trying to navigate a new world where your former services aren’t as applicable anymore or your offerings may be feeling a bit lopsided. This interactive workshop will offer ideas and insights on how to review and refresh your services and take an opportunity to offer something new. We’ll also have time to share challenges some are going through and offer some peer-to-peer feedback and advice to one another. 

Presented by: Michelle Freeman, CEO, Witty Gritty
