This group is for those of us who are in a creative industry that are either currently making a living or aspire to making one. It’s important for us as creatives to build relationships, form networks, create value, and be PAID for our creative work. Greenville is growing, and creative business owners can really add to this growth.
Fun Fact: • “The value of arts and cultural production in America in 2015 was $763.6 billion, amounting to 4.2% of gross domestic product. The arts contribute more to the national economy than do the construction, mining, utilities, insurance, and accommodation and food services industries.” Sources: National Endowment for the Arts, The Arts Contribute More Than $760 Billion to the U.S. Economy
This is a laidback kind of group, but we are creative business owners. Participants in this group will be encouraged to share tips, develop strategies, form collaborations if interested, etc to help with growth in our creative endeavors (both individually and collectively).
"Great things in business are never done by one person; they're done by a team of people." – Steve Jobs
The group is for anyone who considers themselves an artist or freelance creative that has (or aspires to have) products or services that earn income.
This is the 1st meetup (Exciting!). Thanks for signing up. This meeting is basically for introductions concerning our creative endeavors and will be held at the Coffee Underground. We do have a private room for the group. The host just asks that everyone buy one treat and/or beverage, so hopefully that isn't a problem for anyone. I hear there they are good and the menu prices are very reasonable.
