From the moment it was announced, I was totally invested in the Creative at Heart Conference. Kat and Taylor, the creators, are new (within the last year or so) small business owners and it has been wonderful seeing them grow exponentially fast! Seriously, since our own business started out, they have been brilliant sources of inspiration. They are always up to something ground breaking that challenges the industry (in a good way) despite being so new to their own businesses. The sole fact that they decided to create this conference in their first year of business with 16 AMAZING speakers and sold out to over 50 young creatives in 13 days is a great example of their willingness to make things happen! Truly remarkable!! Beyond the fact that I cannot get enough of Kat and Taylor's sweet, enthusiastic charm, I am so excited to meet all the other small business owners attending this two day conference. From the speakers to the attendees themselves, I will be getting to meet SO many fellow creatives that I practically worship. I really don't know how I'm going to get over being so star struck, but I guess I have a few months to prepare myself! No really, I have drooled over every. single. speaker. My heart probably even skipped a beat when I saw Katelyn James (I just loved her workshop last November!), Lauren Hooker (She is redesigning our brand and website later this winter!!!), and Amanda Veronee (I'm not a floral designer but darn if she doesn't make me want to be one!!)!! They all have captivated me for years with their stunning talent and business savvy. I cannot wait to learn from them and literally every other person I get to listen to and meet along the way!
Cheers to kicking the New Year off right this January!
