Who else loves watching handletterers create their art?? 🙋‍♀️🙋‍♀️🙋‍♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This week, this is at top of mind for many of us. This video was captured by @shawnaclingerman, who is one of our Spring 2018 alums. She lettered a note for our attendees to receive every day in the Encouragement Wall at the Conference this Fall, and this was one of them! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Each day, put your best foot forward, and try to get a little bit better every single day. We all start out knowing nothing ... but it's a mindset shift, knowing that we can get a little better each and every day that will continue moving you forward. Here's to having a good week for all of us! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

On Wednesday, October 10th, Hurricane Michael made landfall on the Gulf Coast of Florida, as a Category 4 Storm. This is one of the strongest hurricanes ever to reach the US, and the devastation that it caused was catastrophic. With the Society for Creative Founders being based about 2 hours west in Pensacola, Florida, we want to do our part to help Florida to rebuild. The need is great, and with your help, we can work together to donate 100% of the net profits generated from this fundraiser to help immediately with those in need in Panama City, Mexico Beach, and surrounding areas. We have partnered with Sarah Roberson of @theredheadedcamel, who created a design with so many loved cities in the state of Florida. For all details and to donate to the relief effort, head on up to our website at the link above! Please tag your friends below and share, share, share to help us spread the word 💕

Each one of you have a gift, serious talent, and exactly what you need to help your life and your business to live in harmony together, while soaring all along the way. To those who were following along on our IG, we took a break from social media to be truly present with our attendees, but you can bet you’ve got an incredible week of memories coming your way. 💕

We just wrapped up Day Two of our Conference and goodness gracious, y’all. SO much goodness is happening within the walls of this home that we still get to call ours for the next few days. . These women are all putting in so much time, thought, and effort into their businesses and with they’re learning here to build their knowledge even more, it has been absolutely incredible so far. If you want to see a bit of a play by play of today, check out our stories ... there have been a lot of wonderful things taking place today! 💕 . {photo by @xoashleyvictoria}

It's Conference week, which means that there are little boxes of happiness making their way across the US on their way to our Fall Attendees! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I had so much fun designing these and it's one of my favorite pre-conference details every year. We can't share what's on the inside of them quite yet as we're trying to hold out the surprise factor for those who haven't received them yet as long as we can, but a little birdie told me that if you visit either the or the hashtag and watch the stories posted, you might get to see peeks! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Our sponsors have such a tremendous part in making our Conference happen in the way it does every year. Specifically with these, the inside and outs of these boxes are thanks to @nashvillewraps, @tog.ink, @printswellfulfillment, and Kelly of @helloworldpaperco, who is one of our Alumni! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So to each and every one of our Sponsors, *thank you*. You are incredible to work with each and every time our Conference takes place and we truly, truly appreciate all of you! 🎉💕

There are certain days that you have to let go of the professional photos and snap a selfie to show your excitement, because this is the face of someone who can not WAIT for Thursday to be here! Just as a warning .... you may see an overload of Conference goodness for the next couple of weeks, especially in our Stories! What are YOU hoping to see peeks of?? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The next few days I'm calling "Organization Central", and are filled with crossing items off checklists, tying a few more bows, and winning a masterful game of Tetris in my car to make everything fit in one trip. That last one alone may take a few hours, but oh, it'll happen! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To the women who will be joining us in just three days, I can't wait to see you. CHEERS to having an amazing week, and I can't wait to sip coffee with you while looking at the waves each morning!

Every Friday, we close out the week in our Membership Community asking people to share things they're celebrating that happened throughout the the week. Sometimes they're business related, sometimes they're personal, but there is ALWAYS something to celebrate. Today, we had someone share that she hired someone to their team and signed a contract for a new freelance opportunity, another one of our members completed a new collection for their business, even celebrating a personal note that their town got grocery pickup! (for real ... we all know that is a big personal thing!!) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It is so important to celebrate SOMEthing every single week. It might be something as small as organizing your office on a Friday so that it's ready to go for you on Monday, or something big like having an incredible launch week. So on that note, what are YOU celebrating this week?? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ........ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you want to become a Community Member, it is open to join only for a few more hours, until 10:00 this evening (CST) when it will close again until the spring. Want to learn more? Visit our profile at the link above for all of the details. We hope to see you there! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ {photo by @lifecreated at our 2015 }

We asked our Fall Conference Photographer @xoashleyvictoria her opinion on styling images for social media - on how to capture them in a way that they are relevant to your work but capture your personality as well, so that they speak to your ideal client each and every time. This is an image that Ashley styled for her own Instagram feed, and I happen to think it captures who she is beautifully. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When it comes to images for social media, you want to learn how to be able to style your own so that you don't have to rely on stock images every time. In addition, it allows you to bring in your own personality and style to your images, to evoke a feeling that is entirely your own. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When I asked Ashley what advice she would give on this particular topic, this is how she replied: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "My best piece of advice when styling images for social media is to keep your ideal client in mind while also staying true to who you are as a brand. The goal is to polarize those clients who are not in your niche market, and to build trust and rapport with those clients who are. Don’t sacrifice your uniqueness for the latest trend. Create images that show people who you are and how you’re different from other brands because you are LIKE them (the client)." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Ashley, we could not agree with this more, and we can't wait for your breakout session on this topic just a few days away from today at our Fall Conference! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What additional questions do you have about learning how to style your own images for social media? Ask away below, and let's chat about this together! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

This is something that came to me when I was planning out a session for our Conference this past spring. My heart started beating out of my chest and my fingers started rapidly typing away and before I knew it, this had spilled out faster than I thought imaginable. I shared these words in our Class this morning, and I simply want to encourage you here today. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ First of all, every time you are creating anything for your business, collections, truly amazing collections, take time. Give yourself the time you need in order to create something that you absolutely love, and the time needed to market it beforehand. Don’t just try to go as quickly as you can, rather take the time to truly think about it all. What can you create that you is a true reflection of you, for the people your business serves, that is something you're proud to call a design of *yours*? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And two, as hard as you are working day in and day out running your business, please remember to give yourself white space, time to be creative, time to lift your head up from all of the screens, to breathe in the sweetly whispering fresh air that surrounds you, creating a life you absolutely love. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ No two businesses are the same, and that if it takes you months or even a year or more to create a collection while living life at the same time, that’s perfectly okay! Don’t compare yourself to someone else with where YOU are in your business. You can truly, truly do this, just take the time you need to create a business and a life that you are proud of. 💕 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I was writing a note to a friend who was struggling the other day and suddenly these words took over - my hand started writing so quickly and I knew that this wasn't a message to be heard only by her. . So to the artists, the makers, the designers who are reading this post today, who think you "just make things" and that darn self limiting belief comes in that no one truly needs your work, that no one would notice if you just stopped, . to you, I have one thing to say. . Stop that negative talk right now. . You are an artist. . You are creating something that wasn't in this world before simply by using your hands, your heart, your talents and the gifts you've been given and the things you've learned along the way. . You are adding more beauty, more creativity, more color into this world simply because you are sharing the kind of creativity that only YOU you have, and goodness gracious is it needed in this world.  By creating art, or making things with your hands, or designing something on a screen, you are absolutely filling a need. . You are filling such a wide variety of pain points for people who don't share those same gifts, so don't for a second tell me that "you just make pretty things". The things you make may be pretty, or unique, or different, or weird, but they're also here only because *you* created them. . And the world needs every single one of you to keep on keeping on, and adding all of the art that we possibly can to the world around us. . {📸: @vicbils}

This week, we have our sixth speaker for our Fall Conference, Heather Jordan of Durst and Jordan Accounting on the blog! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Heather joined us at the Spring 2018 Conference and taught the Money session. She is such a wealth of knowledge that we knew we had to have her join us again. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There are *so* many questions you need to know the answers to when it comes to money in particular as a creative business owner. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ✧ What type of business are you? A sole proprietorship, an LLC, or a Corporation? Which one of these makes sense for you? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ✧ How are you going to manage your business money? What do you need to do and how? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ✧ Taxes: How, why, and are you paying too much? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ These are just a few of the questions we'll cover in this detailed session. We know that this topic is the one that normally has the most conversation surrounding it at our Conference, so we have planned for ample time for our attendees to have time to ask all of the money related questions they need to, in addition to setting up a plan for financial success for years to come. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Learn more about Heather on the blog at the link in our profile above, and don't forget that there are only THREE more days to decide to register to join us!
