"Whip Your Finances into Shape," a two-part seminar series from Freelancers Union and Galia Gichon, might be just the help you need to reach your financial goals in 2008. These seminars touch on everything from basic budgeting to retirement planning, and are a great introduction to personal and business finance for freelancers. The first installment takes place on Wednesday, February 13, and the second is on Thursday, March 6. You can register online, and the cost for Freelancers Union members is $60 for both parts. (It's $80 for non-members, but membership is free, so you should really just join!)
