On Wednesday, October 10th, Hurricane Michael made landfall on the Gulf Coast of Florida, as a Category 4 Storm. This is one of the strongest hurricanes ever to reach the US, and the devastation that it caused was catastrophic.

When I think about the times that we have been able to bring people together, I think about the relationships that have formed that have instantly become strong, steadfast, and continue to grow long after the initial goodbyes are spoken, those same relationships that have lasted for years after people first said their hellos and introduced themselves.
And when I think about our Conference, I want it to be a place where things come together beautifully, in a way that changes the way you look at running your business and living your life at the same time, in the best way possible.

Friends, I have some exciting news!
In 2012, I attended a little conference in the quiet beach town of Pensacola called Stationery Academy. It was by chance I was there. Missing the first conference the previous summer, some last minute openings and scholarships came available and I took a leap of faith to attend. I never knew that a little over a year from that conference, I would be at the helm of that ship, fostering a budding community at Society For Creative Founders.
What started as a once-per-year conference grew into a huge community with business training and learning opportunities, both online and in person, for creative entrepreneurs multiple times a year.
In July 2015, at our eighth conference in Phoenix, I met Kristin Wilson. She was shifting her business from wedding planning to stationery design, which she did successfully within six months after attending our conference. Since then, she’s had both an online and an Etsy shop, a product line in local stores, wedding stationery, branding, and speaking, all while raising two beautiful children.Read More
