REAL TALK About The Business of Being Creative

Link visible for attendees

A free, live online meeting with other creative freelancers and solopreneurs with experienced facilitator, Aura McKay.

REAL TALK is an opportunity to be real about the highs and lows of being a creative services provider working in the gig economy. And for discovering real solutions for the challenges of creative entrepreneurship.

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 on the things that matter like:

💥 pricing
💥 finding clients
💥 predictable income
💥 marketing
💥 work/life time management
💥 closing sales

You will feel less alone in your struggle when you hear how others have conquered something similar. Learn from their mistakes and get inspired by ideas on how to shift it.

Especially now as we navigate our way through these changing and challenging times.

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.

As a trained and experienced online facilitator for group meetings and masterminds, I will set us 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.

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