The amazing people who inspire freelancers

Wow. In case you thought of freelancers as an isolated bunch, just check out all the people who were inspired to start their businesses & follow their passions by friends, family, teachers, and leaders on #ThanksfortheSpark.

This week, our founder Sara Horowitz has been sharing her thanks for the people who inspired her. She invited others to share theirs at #ThanksfortheSpark -- and we got a lot of heartfelt, emotional responses (here are just a few):

Sr. Marcyann challenged us to ask questions, demand more of ourselves, and do it with a sense of humor. #ThanksForTheSpark MT @Sara_Horowitz
