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.
