Hello Creative Friend! The Creative Women Summit has wrapped up (for now), so we're closed for FREE signups at the moment.
FEBRUARY 13 - 17, 2017
During this five-day online summit a wide range of artistpreneurs — we call them Creative Heroines — will share their expertise in training-based conversations, workshops and info sessions. You’ll learn how to turn your creative hobby into an online business that, at very least, covers the cost of your materials. And at best, creates a thriving small (or not so small!) business income.
So, stop being jealous of other creators’ Etsy pages, thinking
“I should be selling my products… but I don’t know how to start.”
Join thousands of creative women for the virtual summit that will give you the tools, the confidence and the plan you need to turn your creative passion into profitable projects.
Here are just a few of the places you may have seen our Creative Heroines
