Hey there, we have a question for you!

Throughout the past two and a half years, when there were no face to face events, did you miss them? Raise of hands if you did.

Well, whether you missed physical events or not, Freelance Is The Future Summit is the best place to exercise and retrain your networking muscles. Sorry to say, we human beings are social creatures, and we shouldn’t be letting these social skills relax and rot away!

Plus with the relaxation of mask measures, if you choose to, we can actually see one another’s faces as well! I don’t know about you, but we’re super excited to see the full faces of friends we’ve met in the past two years.

That’s why we’re bringing you a PHYSICAL summit this year.

To prepare you for the coming year, and also to prepare you for recognising people’s faces too!

With experienced speakers to learn from and a whole bunch of cool freelancers to hang out with, this is truly an event you don’t want to miss.

Exceptional Entrepreneurial Excellence – The Mindset That Creates Winners

Whether you’re just getting started, or you’ve been in the line for some time, freelancing can feel like a very daunting journey. There is a sense of financial insecurity, the fear of being exploited, unending stress, impending loneliness from working alone, and feeling exhausted from wanting to do it all.

Here’s the silver lining – you are NOT alone! It is normal to feel this way sometimes, but it shouldn’t be what you feel all the time. Freelancing should be a means for professionals like yourself to demonstrate and practice your passions and expertise to your clients when they work with you.

Yes, you have the relevant experience and expertise. Yes, you have the knowledge and know-how to get things done. And yes, you have the fire and passion to keep going.

The big question is: Why does the journey still seem so arduous?

In this power-packed 45-minute session, Shawn will work with you to bring out hidden elements of your entrepreneurial spirit so that you are able to thrive and flourish with confidence as you journey on in your line of work.

Key takeaways:

  • Develop a deep sense of clarity and purpose for being in the industry
  • Understand what it means to embody excellence your journey
  • Learn the 3Rs that enable great change to happen

Let's elevate freelancing together, for freelancers, by freelancers.

Now listen, we know what you might be thinking right now. Who is TFA and why should I attend a summit organised by TFA? Can’t I just google “freelancing” and find out all I need to know online?

Well… technically, you can. And we sincerely wish you all the best if you choose to go that route!

But we started TFA for one reason and one reason only. To help freelancers and the self-employed elevate your freelance profession. Built by freelancers for freelancers, we’ve been creating safe spaces for freelancers to convene, learn and grow together.

This time, we wanted to do something more.

We wanted to prepare our community of freelancers for 2023, and we also wanted to help budding freelancers kick off their journey with all the support they need.

Everyone starts somewhere. More often than not, that “somewhere” means alone with no connections, only a passionate heart and an ambitious dream to be a successful freelancer.

And if you’re reading this, whether you’re a seasoned freelancer or not, TFA can help you get there.

Then why is this event FREE then?

We started off with nothing as well. We know how it’s like. So, we intentionally made this event free so that the valuable sharings and networking can be accessible to everyone who is interested.

Here, see for yourself what past attendees of our events have said.

See? We told you that you are in good hands.

So what are you waiting for?
