The Texas Freelance Association is a support system for freelancers that provides a community of peers, qualified mentors, and a voice of advocacy. We help freelancers optimize their profits, avoid burnout and other pitfalls, clarify their identity, and jumpstart their business. Through in-person events, one-on-one and group educational opportunities, and peer-to-peer support, we create cohesion for the freelance community.
Our outreach to local businesses will help create jobs for freelancers and encourage overall economic growth for the freelance sector. The Texas Freelance Association also uses a statewide network of chapters to provide a sustainable, local anchor alongside a fun and creatively driven, safe space for freelancers of all experience levels.

Create a Community
It is no secret freelancers earn more money and have more fun when they have a vibrant community to be an active part of. TFA is committed to facilitating a safe space for freelancers across the State of Texas to connect and grow together.
Help Freelancers Grow
Freelancers need the same level of business education and resources larger businesses have access to. TFA is committed to finding and offering education that fits in to your busy schedule with an online training library, webinars and live workshops.
It can be difficult to evolve your freelance business to the next level without support and guidance. As a TFA member you have access to a mentor and speed coaching through our affiliation with the Austin Coaching Coalition.
Freelancing is best known for its ability to offer a lifestyle that is fun, TFA is here to support that too. Check out the event calendar for a Happy Hour in your neck of the woods.
What our members are saying
"TFA has been an invaluable resource for me. Through the Jumpstart program I was able to reconfigure my business plans, and through the other resources I've made invaluable connections with fellow freelancers and new clients. Being a freelancer is so much easier as a member of TFA!"
TFA has given me so much over the few months I have been part of this community. I had the technical skills of what I wanted to do but TFA gave me the practical skills for running a business and, more importantly, the courage to stick with it. Running a freelance business is not easy and sometimes I feel like I'm crazy for doing this, but TFA members are friendly faces who have been there before and can help steer me in a better direction. I haven't met an unkind member yet and I am so proud to be part of such a positive community. I finally feel like I can make it as a freelancer!
