This is not just a workshop, this is a creative awakening. A space for shared ideas, digging deep for inspiration, and working toward improving our craft- collectively and individually. So often, people write asking questions about my business and the inner workings of how it’s all done. There are obviously so many layers of answers to these questions and the Workshop is a perfect response to that.
-What are the tools we use and how do we effectively share our creative ideas with clients, in a way that is translatable? In a way they will resonate and grow into a superior event?
-How can we nurture our families and our business at the same time?
-How do we budget our events, manage our crew, determine timing for install, make it look flawless?
-How do you determine what clients are right for you?
On top of all of this….How do we remain true to ourselves, our creative vision, and set goals for growth?
It’s a LOT! But trust me, the workshop is such an amazing experience and a great way to push yourself past any fears or obstacles that may be standing in the way of taking it to the next level. Every time we host one, I learn so much from the inspiring group of attendees. It’s like creative purification… No brides, no clients, no demands, just an open forum for us to do our thing.
