Submitted by San Juan County Economic Development Council

Learn to navigate challenges faced by freelancers and similar small businesses at a panel discussion from noon-1:30 p.m. on Nov. 7 at the Orcas Island Library. This event will be helpful for anyone interested in starting a new freelance or consulting business and those already running one.

Panelists Selby Lighthill of Lighthill Law; Mary Ann Sircely, of Sircely Marketing and Design; and James Bach of Satisfice will give short presentations on their areas of expertise, including legal, marketing and pricing issues. Panel presentations will be followed by discussion among all attendees.

This free event is put on through the San Juan County Economic Development Council’s Knowledge Worker Network initiative which connects islanders who work primarily with information, such as software developers; editors and writers; web and graphic designers; scientific consultants; and many others. Members of any and all professions are welcome at this event. For more information, visit https://sanjuansedc.org/kwn.
