Cocktails and a Business Plan!

Cocktails and a Business Plan.png

Most creatives, especially freelancers, think they don’t need a business plan. That business plans are only for big businesses and established companies. That creating a business plan is too intimidating and hard and a waste of time.

They’re wrong. (womp, womp)

A business plan can help you differentiate your brand, streamline your marketing, and get your finances in order once and for all.  

Imagine this...

Your dream clients know who you are and want to work with you, you’re making a steady income doing the work you love, and you feel like you’re finally in control of your business.

Sounds like a pretty dope life, right?

A good business plan is the key to getting to that point, and without one, you’re probably losing work. Tether is partnering with SparkLight Creative Group’s K.A. Simpson to help you create your own business plan by taking out the boring and scary parts and making it fun!

Simpson has helped clients like Sloane Boutique, Left Bank Coffee House, and Black Owned Outerwear create thriving businesses.

In this workshop, we’ll cover:

  • Developing a signature personal brand that helps boost your business
  • Creating a marketing strategy that promotes your services to your dream clients
  • Figuring out your true financial costs and how much you should be charging to meet your needs.

You’ll also get:

  • Business planning worksheets to organize your thoughts
  • Engaging group discussion with fellow creatives
  • One-on-one guidance and support
  • One (1) signature cocktail & light bites

All in the relaxing comfort of The Globe’s trendy living room!

You’ll leave with a simple business plan that covers what you need to take control of your freelance career, a clear understanding of what you need to do to succeed, and the confidence to move forward like a boss.
