The Business of Creativity Entrepreneurial Workshop Series (Opening Session) – Jackson

September 7, 2013 @ 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Have you heard? Creative entrepreneurs are the new economy. If you are a creative individual you are in a unique position to stand out in the crowded marketplace and rock your indie biz. But most creative people do business differently and they are frustrated with the old-school, traditional business model. This is why Spring Arbor University partnered with the Arts and Cultural Alliance and is offering workshops that address your unique creativity and build your indie biz.

The new SAU Hosmer Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation will host these workshops. Join us to:

 clarify your business model
 define your brand
 create a map to reach your goals
 effectively use social media to build your business
 ditch the traditional model and how to gain clients/customers and new followers
 set up step by step tips to organize an event to highlight your talents – in person and on the web events
 frame “your story” to connect with your audience
 connect with experts with knowledge and experience who will provide additional resources
