Reaching the "Right" People in Your Creative Career with Zip Creative's Joanne Zippel

As a creative artist, it can be hard to find and connect with the “right” people to move your career forward. This may be do to self-limiting beliefs, such as viewing networking as the business of selling yourself and not staying true to your authentic artistic vision, or it may be a lack of know-how and a reluctance to step out of your comfort zone. At this hands-on seminar you will learn powerful techniques that will get your creative work seen and practice strategies that will connect you to the people who are right for you!
