The Power of Attending Conferences, Workshops, and Retreats

A small handful of entrepreneurs know the power of attending Conferences, Workshops, and Retreats, and go every year.  

And a lot of entrepreneurs, for whatever reasons they may be, do not.  We will buy online courses, classes, and attend online webinars all day long, but going to anything in-person has lot lower of a chance of it actually happening.

Why is that? The power of attending an in-person event gives you something that all of these online offerings do not, and that's something that I want talk about today.  So below, I wanted to write a post sharing with you why I think that attending an in-person event is not only important, but should be a vital item you include in your business as an entrepreneur.

After reading, let us know your thoughts on if you find these same things to be true!

Exciting News about our 2018 Conference Experience

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.

We have a New Look!

When I think about the Society for Creative Founders, to me it embodies these three things: community, support, and an element of fun built into all of the learning that takes place in this online space. I want it to feel like a conversation between friends, with a bit of whimsy and fun built right in. Like the creatively designed card that you lovingly write out to a friend and drop in the mail, and of course, be bright, cheery too.

Hi everyone, and happy New Year!
