Join us for a special "fifth Monday" event as Career Coach (and Meetup member) Angela Martin of Defining Success Coaching (https://www.facebook.com/DefiningSuccessCoaching) speaks about how to market in ways that come most naturally to us, as well as finding our niche markets. This will be a fun event full of useful information on how to get your creative works out into the world. I hope you can join us!

Every Monday at Creatives Coffee Klatch we discuss the creative life amongst like-minded friends. Whether you're a writer, painter, sculptor, singer, or even a businessperson, come get a caffeine boost for your artistic spirit!
I'm happy to announce that C2K is now new & improved. Here are some of the changes:
New Time: By popular request, we will begin one hour earlier, at 9 a.m. New Venue: We will now meet at Cafe Cabaret (http://www.meetup.com/SDCreatives/venue/825783/?forceUrlname=true&pop=true) in Normal Heights, on Adams Ave. just off the 15 freeway. There is a private, cozy room in the back with a large wooden table and lots of natural light. Parking also should be easier to find. New Format: We will start with a short meditation, followed by the creative topic of the week. We'll then have time for sharing, and I'll ask that members limit their sharing to 5 minutes in order to allow everyone a chance to share. If we have time left over in the hour we can engage in a general discussion or respond to requests for feedback. New Price: The drop-in price for C2K is now $10. I am also offering a 1-month subscription option for $30 (https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=QKBD7F8Z3JH6W) (please click to prepay via PayPal or credit card; check or cash also will be accepted). The subscription option is an even better deal in months like January that have 5 Mondays! Drop-ins are welcome anytime; monthly subscription payments are due on or before the first meeting of the month. New Goodies: I will offer complimentary black & herbal tea. The cafe also has coffee and breakfast options that you may purchase on your own (please arrive early if ordering food or drinks). What to bring:
An open mind and an open heart! :) A sketch book or journal if you'd like to take notes while we chat. You may also bring projects for show-and-tell. Please review our guidelines: The 5 S's of Successful Communication (http://www.sdcreativeconnection.com/1/post/2011/07/the-5-well-6-ss-of-successful-communication.html) What you'll receive:
Complimentary tea. (Mmmm...) Inspiration from a group of like-minded creatives. Accountability for your artistic goals. Click here to read Rachel's blog, inspired by previous C2K gatherings: 'Only Connect...' (http://www.sdcreativeconnection.com/blog.html)
