The Non-Nine-to-Five Workshop with Jen Shultz

Building a business you are truly passionate about can feel daunting and scary. Knowing that it will be sustainable and successful with 100% certainty may seem impossible . . . 

Question after question can fly through our minds at light speed and are enough to STOP us in our tracks - 

Can I really do this? 
What if I'm just not cut out for this?
What if I am not credible enough? 
What if people don’t want to invest in my product or service?

Jen Shultz, Founder of The Non-Nine-to-Five™ will take you directly into the low-level habits that plague new entrepreneurs and share exactly how to STOP the swirling and twirling that the mind does so you can find your ideal clients, feel more confident, generate more money, and experience ease as a self-employed person.

You will learn:

  • How your own thoughts are actually what control the outcomes you seek in your business and there is in fact, NOTHING outside of yourself that can STOP you from creating the successful and sustainable business you want.

  • The power of COMMITMENT and CONSISTENCY and when used properly will provide enormous support on your business building journey.

  • What you are currently doing or not doing that is directly slowing down your business growth.

This talk/workshop is for you if:

  • You are new to the entrepreneurial world (1 day to a few years)

  • You are a creative

  • You feel a heart centered connection to your work

  • You know you are not meant to work a 9-5

  • You are someone who believes in the power of personal growth/development

  • You are tired of feeling afraid

  • You want to experience ease with your work/business

If you answered YES to any of the above, we hope to see you there!!!

Creatives Meet Business: Event Planning Edition

Creatives Meet Business is an event and podcast series that helps artists and creatives learn the ropes of entrepreneurship and create a sustainable lifestyle. Who do we mean when we say "creative"? For us, creative is a broad term - you could create apps, concepts, films, compositions, words, websites, songs, dance numbers, or pies (among other things, naturally we didn't include everything here, but you get the idea).

We help you learn tough to tackle concepts through an intimate set-up of roundtable discussions with Austin's top professionals in the fields supporting the creative industry. Join us Tuesday, June 26th for the Event Planning Edition, hosted by The Refinery and learn all about....you guessed it, event planning!

We've got you, the solopreneur / creative entrepreneur, in mind when it comes to helping you create the best dang event that you can...which is exactly why we're bringing in the big guns to help!

Get ready to spend some time chatting about...

  • Teams, Tension, and Trial and Error; AKA, The Art of Working with Others When the Stakes are High // Sarah Lo, VP of Professional Services - Red Velvet Events

  • Event Planning: Creating Your Own Roadmap for a Successful Event // Richelle Ouellette, Principal - Alchemy Events

  • It’s Not Just an Event, It’s An Experience: Here’s How to Build One // Danielle “Dani” Thomas, Owner - Big Green House

  • Sponsors, Sponsorships, and Sponsor Decks - Oh My! // Hayley Swindell, Founder - The Refinery

  • Event Marketing: If You Build It, Will They Come? // Sarah K. Wolf, Marketing Director - The Austin Chronicle

Chat with each pro for 20 minutes before they rotate to the next table - speed dating style - all while getting acquainted with your tablemates that span the entire spectrum of the creative industries in Austin. Don't know what we mean by "speed dating style?" No problem! You stay planted, so pick a table of strangers (aka - friends you haven't met yet) and settle in for the ride. Every 20 minutes, one of the amazing folks listed above will drop some knowledge at your table (and please feel free to ask questions, engage and ENJOY). Each one of them will be hosting a UNIQUE discussion, so no two speakers (or conversations) are alike.

Drinks (of the "spirited" variety) and snacks are provided.
