Captive vs. Freelance: Making an Informed Decision

Check out webinar slides handout Freelance vs. Captive webinar slides handout here.

In this presentation, John will first define what captive and freelance mean these days, and share the advantages and disadvantages of being both a captive and freelancer.

Flexibility vs. risk and stability vs stagnation and obeying orders are a couple of topics included in John’s presentation.

John is a character and his presentations are always entertaining as well as informational. And there will be time at the end for Q&A.

Note: This will be our first virtual chapter meeting. We are doing this only because we had so much difficulty in finding a location for our November Chapter meeting on the East side. If you would like to see chapter meetings continue on the East side, please help us by hosting us at your location or helping us find other low cost or free facilities. Otherwise, we may end up always meeting on the Seattle side as locations are cheaper and easier to find.
