What is Connection Day?

Connection Day is a full day of no holds barred foundational business training for creative entrepreneurs who make and sell handmade products, or products manufactured on a small scale.

On Connection Day, you'll come together with other members in community for uplift and to receive (and give!) encouragement, and also to focus on and solidify the strategic direction for your business.

Under the loving and experienced guidance of the founder and CEO of the Indie Business Network, award-winning entrepreneur Donna Maria Coles Johnson, you'll enjoy an interactive day of MasterMinding, vision boarding, and the opportunity to apply timeless foundational business principles directly to your business — and start using them right away to boost your success.

Why Connection Day? Small Business, Big Results!

pic-of-business-planAs a fellow small business owner, I know that life can be lonely, scary, and isolating. As I have grown my business over the past 15 years, I have found that nothing helps me step up my game like unplugging from the day-to-day pressures of entrepreneurship to revitalize my efforts and absorb the energy of fellow entrepreneurs. I do this each year on my annual #IndieCruise. Connection Day offers a similar experience, but more focused and in depth, and on dry land, in your own back yard … and sans the snorkeling, zip lining, spa, and beach combing.

You can get a lot out of a virtual networking group, and boy — do we get a lot out of connecting in our private Facebook Group.

But like I always say — you cannot get energy through a laptop. Environment is important. You simply have to be in the room to capture the energy.

There's nothing like a face-to-face experience to facilitate the type of bonding and sharing that is so important to your success. While we can all embrace and bask in some positivity online, only in-person connections can spawn the kind of confident “know, like trust,” flow that is required to maximize business opportunities and individual personal growth.
