Connect with other creative solopreneurs

February’s meeting topic is Get Productive: Tools & Tips that help you get more done. The life of the solopreneur is filled with distractions and tangents. We juggle what to do all day long. In this month’s meeting, bring your favorite tools, apps, tips, and strategies that help you stay on task and be productive. We will capture your ideas to create a list of recommendations for Solopreneurs.

Join us as we discuss the tools we use to be a successful solopreneur:

  • To do: how do you plan your day and what you want to accomplish?
  • Digital or material: do you use apps on your phone or love your paper?
  • All the details: how do you keep track of time, files, materials, money, clients, vendors and all the other moving parts of a business?



12:00 – 1:00 PM Creative Solopreneurs Meeting
