Real Talk

January 28, 2020 @ 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Real Talk About The Business of Being Creative hosted by Aura McKay, Founder of Business of Creativity

Don’t you wish you had someone to talk to about the reality of running a creative services business?

Wouldn’t it be great to get a qualified perspective on what’s holding you back or tripping you up….instead of random advice from social media?

What is missing for many creative solopreneurs is a space for real conversations and support. Real talk about the highs and lows with other creatives, just like you! And real solutions for the challenges of creative entrepreneurship:

  • sustainable pricing
  • finding clients
  • predictable income
  • confidence in value
  • work/life time management
  • closing sales

Conversations about what is keeping you stuck and real help, connections, and resources to get you moving again.

Feel less alone in your struggle, hear how others have conquered something similar and learn from their ideas on how to shift it.

And…..what about celebrations? Where do you go to share those business wins that nobody in your family really understands?

Finally figured out your pricing? Woo hoo! High five!
Streamlined your onboarding and saved 30 minutes per project? Heck ya you did!

This is your chance.

And don’t worry….this is a facilitated event. I’m going to help everyone manage this new way of connecting. I promise to create something unique and valuable.

First Part – Welcome & Introductions

We start with a guided networking session where you can grow your confidence in introducing yourself, practice networking techniques that get real results, and connect with likeminded creatives with similar business challenges – just like other MeetUp & networking events.

BUT….this is not your typical sit around in a meeting room with no idea what to say or how to participate.

I am a trained and experienced online facilitator for group meetings and masterminds. You will be set up for success with clear instructions and plenty of opportunities to practice.

Second Part – Overcoming Challenges

After identifying a common obstacle, I will lead a focused discussion to share wisdom, techniques, experiences, resources, and make contributions to each other so that we all walk away with an ah-ha or a plan of action.

NOTE: This is an intimate group of no more than 10 people. You must register in advance. Registration is through MeetUp.

This meeting is interactive and full of connection. Please message me if you have questions.
