SECP September | Creating Multiple Income Streams
Oregon Stamp Society

One of the most popular modules of our new Self-Employed Academy ( is the one that talks about creating multiple streams of income. This module not only shows how to do that but we also talk about the different 'quadrants' of income you need to develop in order to stabilize you income.

Stabilize your income | What does that mean? What do you do when clients don't want to buy 'services'? It happens. The market tends to be cyclical. When it's down (like now) clients hold onto their money. They want to try to do it themselves. Where does that leave you if you're a service provider?

We're going to show you! There are experts right here in our own community that are doing fine earning a living by creating multiple income streams. SECP has pulled together a stellar panel who will share with you what they're doing to make it work. They'll give you some real examples of what they're doing and then they'll answer your questions.

Indie UX/UI Meetup - Kickoff Meet & Greet
Shut Up and Eat

Hi everyone! This is the very first event in a new series of meetups for independent/alternative designers in Portland. Come on by and meet some folks! Let's talk about what we can do with a group like this.


Work alone? Freelance? Self-taught? Only designer on your team? Only developer who cares about UX? You might be an indie designer.

The goal of this group is to build community by sharing space, stories, process, techniques, and skills. We aim to help people feel more fulfilled, supported, and connected in their work. ALL people working or interested in design are welcome but most especially women, nonbinary folks, LGBTQA+, POC, and any others who are not well supported or represented in the tech industry.

This is a community-driven event and so the format, process, and schedule of this series is still in flux. Things to think about: What do you need? How can we (this group) help?

See Facebook event page for more details.
