How to use your own creative process to craft a plan that works for you.!

Producing a written, traditional business plan can be a struggle, yet we all need to plan to achieve our goals.  This workshop series is for all creative, right-brained thinkers and even those who hate to plan!  Each workshop uses practical, visual tools to take you through the planning process, in bite-sized chunks. You’ll share ideas with fellow creatives and follow your own creative process to craft that works for you.

Thinking BIG

In session 1, you will explore how to design a business around your personal values and what makes you tick.  Using your own create process as the inspiration, you’ll create a vision for your business to keep you inspired, motivated and on track for success.
