At the end of a year I like to take a look back at the year and see what I accomplished, what changed in my life, what lessons I learned. I usually do this in a journal. This year I decided to share some of it with you. I’d love to hear what your lessons were.
Don’t be afraid to stop a successful event
In 2010 I stepped out on a limb and decided to create the Creative Arts Business Summit.
I had been to events, knew what supported me, knew what didn’t, and I wanted to create something that would serve creatives to build a successful, sustainable business.
And by successful, I meant what was successful to you. I’d been to events where someone else decided what my success looked like. I didn’t want that.
That first event, known to those who come as CABS, was held in March of 2011. In the ensuing years, 100s of creatives have joined our tribe, shared their stories, and left transformed. They have found a home where they could share from the heart and not be judged. They felt supported, and changed their business and lives.
People who came to CABS left motivated. More importantly, they left with a plan to follow and a support team to back them up.
And, they kept coming back.
I absolutely LOVE CABS. Why would I want to stop doing it?
