Craftcation Conference 2017 is coming around again and the time to start planning is now.
Networking with other creatives, crafters, and business owners is important to continually grow your online business.
Whether you attend meet-ups, masterminds, or conferences, getting out of your comfort zone and meeting new people is one of the secrets that many small business owners and entrepreneurs use throughout their businesses to maintain consistent growth and help drive sales.
My guest on the show this week is Nicole Stevenson, co-founder of the Craftcation Conference in Ventura, California. You may remember her from Episode 116 back in February.
Nicole rejoins me to talk about the importance of attending conferences throughout the year and how they can impact your business. We also discuss what inspired her and her business partner, Delilah Snell, to plan and organize a conference specifically for small, creative business owners.
As Nicole says, “You have to put yourself out there and make connections”.
She shares some valuable tips for entrepreneurs about what they should consider before registering to attend a conference, how to put yourself out there and connect with people before the conference takes place, and also how to determine how many conferences you should aim to attend in a given year.
Nicole also shares the inside scoop on exactly what the upcoming Craftcation Conference 2017 has in store for attendees, how you can register to attend this exciting and rewarding event, and what fun activities are planned before and after the conference.
