Upcoming events we want Makers to know about!

March 23, 2017: Orientation (Open to all)

Each month, hundreds of members join or renew their membership in the Indie Business Network. As IBN has grown, new benefits have been added at a rapid clip. From our affordable product liability insurance to events like Maker Mastermind (where IBN members enjoy a hefty discount), we are constantly engaged in our community to find the needs and meet them. In fact, today, there are so many member benefits that we thought it would be useful to host a bi-monthly live Orientation designed to help you learn and ask questions about IBN member benefits, the password protected areas of our website our events, and our private Facebook group. This event is open to all, including people who just want to know what we do over here at the Indie Business Network. Stay tuned for instructions on how to join us!

March 27, 2017: Maker Meetups (Open to all)

Entrepreneurship can be messy. It can also be lonely — very very lonely. And while connecting online is convenient and helpful, there is nothing like being in the physical presence of like-minded people who share your perspective on the critical importance of building a business that is both meaningful and profitable.

There is no reason for you to feel like you are alone … because you are not. And you don't have to be overwhelmed either, because there is help in your own local community with Maker Meetups, hosted by the Indie Business Network.

Join us, as we uplift one another and produce a community of happy, thriving Artisan Makers in the Charlotte area.

September 16-17, 2017: 2×4 Live: Seattle (Open to all)

Do you ever feel isolated in your business? Like you know you'd benefit from the energy of a community of people to encourage you, but you don't know where to find them? Do you feel like your destination is clear, but the steps to get there are not? Or maybe you crave the company of like-minded entrepreneurs who can give you honest critique and feedback about the direction of your business?

If you answered “YES” to any of these questions, then you need to be at 2×4 Live: Seattle on September 16-17, 2017. Hosted by Donna Maria and my business colleagues: Kayla Fioravanti, Anne-Marie Faiola and Lela Barker, 2×4 Live launched last year in Nashville to rave reviews. It was such a great event that we decided to host it again, and I would love to see you there! Learn more here.
