Standard Operating Procedures & Process Management for Creative Businesses with Morgan Montgomery

Any business can benefit from creating a more effective and capable workflow, and creative endeavors are no exception! During this talk, we will explore how to identify areas of your creative business that can benefit from process management, how to successfully create, implement and refine standard operating procedures, and how these tools can positively impact your efficiencies, assist you in producing higher quality products and experiences, and directly impact your bottom line.

Cultivating a Cohesive Social Media Presence with Morgan Montgomery

With the ever-changing social media landscape, it can be difficult to maintain a consistent presence across Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and beyond. However, combining the powers of these platforms to work together can directly influence your business and its bottom line! This session will focus on understanding how to develop a cohesive social media strategy that maximizes your time and energy, while building on your current knowledge and skills to have a greater ROI across all platforms.

Money Mindsets with Shanna Skidmore

Did Sam Smith say it best, “I don’t have money on my mind… I do it for the love”, or perhaps Gwen Stefani, “Cha-ching, we’re loaded and we’re gonna blow it”? Whether we want to admit it or not, the way we think (or completely avoid thinking) about money has a great impact on the way we run our business. But it doesn’t have too! You see, each of us have a mindset about money and once we identify these preset ways of thinking, we can adjust them as needed to give ourselves a leg up as business owners. Shanna Skidmore, business strategist + financial coach, will talk us through the four money mindsets, how to identity which one you have and how to incorporate positive money talk into our lives. Don’t worry, she’ll do it all with a smile, a hug and maybe a little bit of bubbly!

By Design, Not Default with Shanna Skidmore

I remember that moment he looked at me and said “you have no boundaries”. I was pretty offended at the time, giving a well-meaning and whole-heartedly misguided excuse, “how am I supposed to turn off something I’m passionate about doing?” As business owners, many of us dive into our business of creating with passion, heart and purpose. Sadly, it often doesn’t take long to realize these great intentions can have detrimental effects on our health, marriage and relationships if we don’t learn how to create boundaries. I think we would all agree we didn’t quit the life-sucking, time draining, 9-5 hustle just to create a bigger cycle of burnout, exhaustion and overwhelm! It’s time we stop spinning our wheels and start again! I’m Shanna Skidmore, business strategist + financial coach, during this talk I’ll be sharing my best tips for productivity, time-management and re-designing that life you hoped for as an entrepreneur! Think two month sabbaticals, Fridays off, and time with those you love! It’s possible!

Just as invitations are a guest's first clue to a wedding's aesthetic, an invitation suite photograph can instantly tell the story of a wedding or shoot in just one image. They can also go terribly wrong!

Setting Goals that Move Us with Reina Pomeroy

Have you ever set a goal at the beginning of the year and you vow that it's going to happen, and three months in, you find that the goal is long forgotten? Do you find yourself with so many cool ideas and you're spending the majority of the year frustrated that there are lots of half-started ideas that never get completed. The best type of goal setting is the kind that works for you. In this lesson, we'll discover what kind of thinker you are and how that predisposes you to a certain type of planning. Ultimately you'll learn how to leverage it and create plans that help you make the impact you want in your life and with your business.
