I’m pumped up from an inspiring day yesterday at The Conference of Creative Entrepreneurs! We heard talks from Faythe Levine and Cathie Filian, and I sat on panels about podcasting and teaching your craft. If you’re in Seattle, there’s no reason to miss out on the rest of the event! You can still sign up for any session of the day for $25 (pay cash at the venue), so be sure to check out the schedule! Some line items I’m personally excited about:

  • Seventy Years of Northwest Craft History in Sixty Minutes with Namita Wiggers
  • Craft Show Vending A-Z with Moxie and Kristen Rask
  • Starting your own brick and mortar shop or gallery with Lisa Congdon, Sally Brock, Faythe Levine, Jennifer Shea
  • The History of Creative Reuse with Garth Johnson
  • Going Green with your business with Jamie Chan, Ruth True and Kevin Clarke
