I'm a smudger. I'm working on changing my ways and become a better person who doesn't smudge....that much.

Itching to be your own boss? So were many of our Thinkful alums. While there are many benefits to going solo, it can be daunting to know how to get the ball rolling. Have no fear, our killer panelists are here to show you the way!

This week’s #ThinkTank will feature seasoned freelancers who will give you tips on managing your time, finding clients, and staying on top of your game.

Tune in on Friday, August 1st at 3:00pm ET to hear from the masters!

We will ask questions like:
1. How did you get into freelancing?
2. What was the most difficult part of defining your brand, service or offer?
3. What’s the first step a n00b should take?
4. What’s the best way to showcase your portfolio? 
5. How do I network and attract clients?
6. What criteria should you use when picking projects?
7. What are good tools for dealing with the finances? (Invoices, expenses, etc.)
8. How do you decide your price point?
9. What helps you stay productive and motivated while working from home?
10. Any final bits of advice you wish you had when you first started?

This was a great video on how to get started with Krita! Short, simple and to the point. Thank you for taking the time to make it.

Entering technical fields can be daunting to anyone but historically women enter at lower rates than men. Women represent 12% of computer science grads and hold only 25% of technical jobs, despite the massive demand. So what’s holding women back?

Join us for a hangout on Friday, June 27th at 2 pm EST to give you the low down on what it is like to be a women in tech in a “brogrammer” world.  

We’ll ask questions like: 

1. How did you end up in the tech world? Has it changed since you first started?
2. What is the culture like where you work now? Do they do anything to  make it more female-friendly?
3.  What are the benefits to being a woman in this space?  
4. What are the biggest barriers you’ve experienced?
5. Do you believe having female mentors is important?  Who inspires you?
6. How would the field be different if there were more women?
7. What is your most compelling reason to join a technical field? 
8. What can we do to get more women excited about STEM? 
9. The whole “women in tech” movement has become such a buzz worthy topic recently. Do you feel that’s empowering or marginalizing?
10. What advice would you give someone just starting out?

BEST MUSIC VIDEO EVER!! Like seriously, the only way to top this would be to have puppies (or Martians) in space singing and playing guitar.
