TOPIC — The Creative Life: Learning to navigate in and outside your design bubble
Entrepreneurs are creative about the way they do business and how they develop as successful small business owners. Creative entrepreneurs take this to the next level and in order to succeed, they have to work inside and outside their peer bubbles.
Join us on Monday, March 20 for an insightful discussion on how to navigate and master the creative hustle. In partnership with the Detroit Creative Corridor Center (DC3), we’ll hear from a panel of entrepreneurs who’ve have combined their creativity with imaginative business thinking to achieve success on their own terms. Hear how their work brings together their creative passion, personal and business goals, all while balancing those with the financial realities of their pursuits.
