Pricing strategy, sales channels, outreach, profit margin, expenses, and inventory… you know—the fun stuff! 

The nuts and bolts of business—operations, systems, and sales. This section is designed to help the creative brain take a deep breath, dig in, and create a solid foundation to set you up for the future. We understand that having a small business is unpredictable and can feel overwhelming, so investing in a solid operational foundation is an investment in feeling secure while navigating the unexpected, and will help you focus on the work you like doing the most — being creative. 

In this section we will focus on sales channels, product management, and how to approach financial planning in a way that is right for you and your creative business. 

Tuesdays April 23rd — May 7th 7:00-  8:30 pm (3 sessions) OR
