You have big dreams for your creative business and are making progress every day.
Each morning you wake up and wear all…the…hats. You are the Creative Director, the CEO, the CFO, head of Marketing, General Counsel, and maybe a mom, wife, sister, aunt, or daughter.
You love running your creative business. And you understand that running a creative business is a rollercoaster, you’ll have amazing days and tough days. But sometimes the ebbs and flows, don’t come as fast as you’d like.
And when the tough days keep piling up, you might start fantasizing about burning everything to the ground. Or wishing you could run away to the woods or a tropical island.
SINCE YOU CAN’T RUN AWAY, IT’S TIME TO INJECT SOME SUMMER CAMP FUN INTO YOUR LIFE.
I WANT TO INVITE YOU TO JOIN ME FOR A VIRTUAL SUMMER CAMP, TAJD CAMP.
During your six weeks at summer camp, you’ll improve your legal foundation, receive pep talks from creative biz owners you admire, and flex your creative muscles.
