What we're about

This group is for creative business owners of all kinds who want to make a good (or great!) living offering their unique, creative work to a growing audience of clients and fans -- and really enjoy the process.

Join us as we gather every month as a creative community to support and inspire each other as we grow our businesses. Every meeting will offer meet and greet time (at the beginning) and free range connection time with fellow business owners (at the end).

Starting in September, we'll have a new rotating quarterly theme cycle for every 3 meetings:

• A quarterly "hot seat" laboratory where we come up with breakthrough creative marketing and business strategies for a few members who volunteer for the creative entrepreneur "hot seat".

• A quarterly "workshop/ play shop" where we use short teaching presentations and interactive partner and team exercises to focus on practical strategies for creativity, productivity and marketing that we can implement to move our businesses forward.

• A quarterly special guest speaker to teach and inspire us in taking our business and creative life to the next level.

Throughout we'll explore a 3-step process of valuing our work, sharing our story and creating profitable business systems around our creative passions. We'll also visit a favorite question of mine, "how does my happiness and health fuel my productivity, creative expression and business growth?"

I'm very happy to be organizing the Pasadena Creative Entrepreneurs Meetup! I look forward to seeing you there!

Special thanks to creative entrepreneur Kristan Browne who started this group in 2015 to support other creative entrepreneurs, artists, and design-based business owners to make a living doing what they love without feeling like you are working 24/7. We continue on with Kristan's motto-- monetize your creative genius.
