Fall Creative Founders Conference Speaker Erin Kendrick

Erin is a visual artist from Jacksonville, Florida who’s color rich, acrylic ink-stained works of art seek to inspire a dialogue about contemporary spectatorship and the power of language as it relates to perceptions of and about black women. She has exhibited work in museums, galleries and alternative spaces throughout the southeastern United States. 

Erin joined us for the first time as an attendee at our 2016 Conference, and it has been absolutely incredible to see how much she has transformed in the last two years since joining us for the first time.

Erin has completely come into her own, distinctive, entirely unique element as an artist, and she is someone I am thrilled will be with us at the Conference this fall.


scf - 2018 blog - in person events.png

A small handful of creative entrepreneurs attend Conferences, Workshops, and Retreats every year.  

And a lot of creative entrepreneurs, for whatever reasons they may be, do not.  We 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.


Top Chrome Plug-Ins for Trello Tips for Productivity

You constantly hear people saying Team Trello! or Team Asana! when it comes to productivity tips and we have to be honest, we've flipped back and forth between the two as well. 

However,  when it comes down to it, we settled on Trello, and it truly is a gamechanger here for us as far as our organization and productivity goes since it works well with how we like things to be laid out.  

Like any digital tool, we found that we wanted to make a few adjustments or changes to our preferences, similar to the way you are with most other productivity apps.  I knew what I wanted to be able to achieve, and that was to not have to click nearly as much, not have open as many cards, and be able to see everything without scrolling left and right as much as I did.  So, I set out to find things that would do just that.

A Smart Goal Setting Guide for Planning and Productivity

There’s something we absolutely love about setting goals.  We love to look ahead and dream about the future, making all sorts of plans, and by speaking it into the world, we think it will automatically shift our brains into gear.

As nice as that would be to actually happen, in order for those goals to come to fruition, we have to put IN the work in the first place.  And this is where the Smart Method to Goal Setting comes in.
