Self-Employed St. Louis (SESTL)

We all know that being self-employed can be challenging and isolating. Self-Employed St. Louis (SESTL) believes that every self-employed professional deserves to be regularly inspired, educated, and supported by a friendly and knowledgeable group of peers.

We combat the common feelings of isolation and working in a vacuum by creating a community of motivated business owners who provide learning opportunities for one another and foster idea sharing and group problem solving.
