I mentioned on Facebook a week or so ago about how I had this crazy idea to start up a regular scheduled discussion on my page, inviting all of those with an interest in 'Indie Design' to catch up for a chat and discuss all things 'Indie Business'.
Now that I have had the chance to think, consider and brainstorm I have decided to make this crazy idea a reality. AND so...
CRAFT LAB is coming!
The basic idea with Craft Lab is to once a fortnight catch up with a chat with mates, maybe learning a few tips or ideas along the way. Each fortnight we will have a 'project' and it will be my role to try and keep the chat on subject!
Eventually, if it is popular, I hope to open up the stage on this idea and bring it to a cafe near you, podcasting the conversation the next day... but for now, the stage has been set on Facebook.
The first three labs are going to be fairly broad, mostly as a way to gauge what subjects you all need more support with, and then as we progress further we will be able to be more 'focussed' and pull in the support of industry professionals.
Followed by: April 16th - "Selling" and April 30th - "Basic Business"
If you have any questions/topics you would like to see covered please let me know, if you are an industry professional (PR consultant, publicist, accountant, branding specialist, co-op store founder etc etc) and you would like to be involved please send me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Most importantly we are relying on YOU to make this happen!
Spread the word, tell your friends and see you all April 2nd!
I'm proud of our community, and I am proud to be supporting the indie design community in a 'real way'!
