Keynote by Keisha Mabry, founder of heyFriend Friendworking

In the past, hustling was seen as a negative thing but now hustling is not only complimentary but the necessary thing freelancers need to succeed. With the rapid growth of the gig economy, research shows that by 2027 freelancers will be the workforce majority. Great news! But...what does that mean for you? Do you have the hustle you need to succeed in order to be the freelancer clients seek? In this keynote, the queen of hustle Keisha Mabry who grew a speaking business from 1 engagement to more than 100 in less than a year, will share her favorite hustles and hacks to get you on the $100K (and up) freelancing track.
