As part of AWAI’s free virtual event for people looking to work at home, participants of the “Work-at-Home Career Summit” will learn how to become a professional graphic designer, as well as seven other proven work-at-home opportunities.

Delray Beach, FL – February 18, 2011 – American Writers & Artists Institute (AWAI), www.awai.com, recently announced they will be holding a free virtual event on February 19, 2011 called the Work-at-Home Career Summit, which will bring together a vibrant group of speakers who all own their own businesses and successfully work from home.

Becoming a freelance direct-response graphic designer is one of the best work-at-home opportunities right now – and you don’t even have to know how to draw a straight line!

According to Salary.com, the average salary for a graphic design specialist is $48,000, but Lori Haller intends to show attendees how their freelance graphic design career can bring in at least twice that.

Lori Haller has been a successful graphic designer for over 20 years creating winning direct mail packages for a wide variety of clients in many different industries. She has designed for health and fitness clients, investment clients, and consumer/business associations and more.

During the session, Lori will share her graphic design experience with participants and explain how they can profit from this work-from-home career themselves. “Lori is a brilliant and widely sought out graphic designer, and has helped many of our members succeed in their own freelance graphic design careers,” said Katie Yeakle, AWAI’s Executive Director.

By the end of Lori’s presentation, participants will know how working from home as a freelance graphic designer can change their lives. They will learn:

  • Why graphic design is a fantastic work-at-home opportunity;
  • What a graphic designer does;
  • Why it’s a great opportunity;
  • How much money they can realistically expect to make;

  • Real-life examples they may come across;
  • And great tips they can put to use right away.

“I am very fortunate to be able to make a comfortable living working at home doing something I truly love! Since I have three boys, doing graphic design at home and planning out each day to meet the needs of our family is a real bonus,” said Lori. “I truly hope some of the insights that I share during my Work-at-Home Career Summit presentation helps others to live the dream!”
