National Freelance Business Week Virtual Summit, aka #NFBW22 National Freelance Business Week Virtual Summit, aka #NFBW22


April 18-22, 2022 || Virtual

In 2021 our founder, Emily Leach applied for a National holiday designation and got it, making the third week of April National Freelance Business Week.

With 30 years of #freelance business experience and building events (like The Freelance Conference), building the largest local freelance community in the U.S. she learned that freelance business owners are more successful when they are in an active, local community.

During National Freelance Business Week there are 8 local city organizers that will be creating local, in-person events in Austin, Denver, Houston, Tampa, Miami, Calgary, Washington D.C., and Asheville. Find #FBW Events in a city near you >>

#NFBW is an industry-agnostic 5-day event, designed specifically for Independent Professionals!

National Freelance Business Week was born in the spirit of those who leave a J-O-B with the dream of freedom, better income, and the ability to control their own careers and lives. This holiday and event combines that shared vision with the reality of what it takes to make the dream of self-employment come true; this is a set of skills that none of us come equipped with in full.

We do, however, step up to the challenge with bright eyes, hope and the energy to take on the world. Because we know that on the other side of that challenge, each and every one of us has a life of freedom and fulfillment awaiting.

Most freelancers find that going solo comes with real challenges. You end up working 16+ hour days, stress over money, you miss working around people, and the self-marketing takes up an anxiety-inducing amount of your time. How do you stop the cycle?

#NFBW Virtual is 5 days of collaboration, connection, and learning, colliding in a dynamic virtual environment where you will be surrounded by your peers from across the nation, who totally get it, and who totally get you.

A full-access ticket to #NFBW Virtual includes access to keynote sessions, workshops, roundtables, Fireside chats and AI-assisted virtual networking!
