The Creative Entrepreneur ReTreat


The Creative Entrepreneur Retreat

I want to live in a world where it’s easy to find and follow your creative path, and make a good living at it if you decide to make it your business.

I’m so saddened every time I hear from another person who isn’t moving forward with their creative ideas, because they are overwhelmed, don’t know what to focus on, or even how to go about choosing what idea to pursue.

It’s even more depressing to hear about all the energy, time and money they’ve spent trying to figure this stuff out, only to end up more confused and frustrated—feeling like they are always starting over, and still…not making any progress (or money).

I want you to have a clear and simple plan for pursuing your creative ideas and dreams. A plan that makes you feel good when you make it and so beautiful you’ll want to use it— because when you’ve got a clear, meaningful picture of what you want to do, and how you’re going to do it, it’s easy to take action and stay focused.

That’s why I’ve created The Creative Entrepreneur Retreat. It’s all about making your dreams, ideas and feelings spectacularly clear and visible, so that you have a plan of action in front of you.

This retreat was originally created in 2006, in response to all of the questions I got from artists who looked at my creative businesses and asked: How do you do that? How can I do that?

Then came The Creative Entrepreneur book (Quarry, 2008), which launched a movement, and has inspired thousands to make their creative (and business) dreams real.

All you have to do is show up with a blank sketchbook. I’ll provide all of the supplies and direction. You get to restfully create and enjoy yourself. By the time we’re done, you’ll have beautiful clarity (priceless!), your next steps mapped out, and a powerful set of creative, strategic tools you can use forever to map out anything, anytime.

Also: there will be laughter, chocolate, and really good food.

Right now, you can check out the calendar, below and claim your space in one of the 2015 workshops. These in-person workshops are kept small by design, and fill up fast.

With love,
