Independents' Day: Part II

March 20th, 2010
2:00pm to 5:00pm

Venue: Telecom ParisTech

Presented by TESOL France President, Bethany Cagnol and Executive Committee member, Elaine Henry.
TESOL France President, Bethany Cagnol, and fellow Executive Committee member, Elaine Henry, team up for "Independents' Day Part 2". This 3-hour workshop is for independents and non-independents.
Elaine and Bethany will be speaking about:
  • Getting and maintaining clients,
  • Time management,
  • Late-payment issues,
  • Paperwork,
  • Using Excel,
  • Autonomously managing one's accounts.
Since this workshop is Part 2 in the series, the speakers won't go into too much detail on how to become a travailleur independant. But for highlights from Part 1 on how to go freelance, I recommend you read the articles from the blog before coming to this workshop. Get your questions in now, by posting them here. The speakers will then try to incorporate them into the workshop.
Join us in what promises to be a very informative and lively discussion.


  1. I will arrive June 1 to being my life as a legal English teacher in Paris. I'm sorry I've missed your presentation. Is there anywhere else I can find the information? I am particularly concerned with whether I'd be better off as a travailleur independent or auto entrepreneur.

  2. You can contact me through TESOL France: You can mention the March 29th workshop on Going Independent and I'll send you the slides.

    We're hoping to do another workshop on Going Auto Entrepreneur. It may take some time to organize, though, since we at TESOL France are busy with the two major conferences on May 29th and November 26-28.
