How to decide which events to attend - and how to get the most out of them

This is Season Four, Episode Nine. The doors are now open to Creative Freedom Live, and this is high season for business conferences and events for creative entrepreneurs. But how do you know whether or not it's really worth it to invest in attending in the first place?

In this episode, I provide a simple "equation" that will help you get clarity about which events will be vital and beneficial to your business, and which ones you should skip.

If you're curious about Creative Freedom Live, we've got a few seats left. This intimate gathering is capped at 10 participants, and we're half full already. Join us in October and we'll build a customized growth plan that works for you and your business for the next 12 months (and beyond)!
