Freelance Colony 1

On October 16-20, 2017 the DaVinci Institute will host its first ever Freelance Academy course as a kickoff for the world’s first Freelance Colony, a coworking community inside the Institutes Westminster headquarters.

A recent report by MBO Partners showed that 3.2 million freelancers are earning more than $100,000 annually. This is up 4.9% from 2016.

“There’s a lot involved in turning a series of projects into a successful lifestyle,” says Dave Taylor, lead instructor for the Freelance Academy course. “Moving up the freelancer food chain to earn a six-figure income will require a focused business model, great mentors, and surrounding yourself with a network of like-minded solopreneurs.”

This is a hands-on course that does exactly that, and the Freelance Academy will provide ongoing support.

Freelancing done right will give you a far higher salary, a far more influential circle of friends, and most importantly, the ability to make a difference.

“No, being a freelancer doesn’t come with health insurance, vacation time, or a 401k plan. But what it does offer is far greater,” says Thomas Frey, Executive Director of the DaVinci Institute. “You’re in control so you get to decide who you want as a client, when you’re available for work, and very often, how much you’ll get paid.”
