The Creators’ Sessions are monthly, live Q&A sessions where we invite experts to come and talk about business or legal issues facing creative entrepreneurs. Covering topics like marketing, metrics, branding, building a team, and more – these sessions are interactive, wide-ranging, and cost nothing to attend.

All participants have the chance to ask questions and get them answered live.

2021 Creative Business Kick-Off

2020 was a big year and we all learned a lot.

In our first live Q&A session of the year, we will talk about how creative business owners faced these unprecedented challenges head-on – and how those lessons can help us all as we grow into the new year.

Join Counsel for Creators attorneys and friends for a wide-ranging conversation about how we can all build better and more resilient businesses. We will discuss what worked and what didn’t during 2020.

This live, interactive Q&A session is free and we will talk about a lot, including:

* How to create a better brand.
* How to get right on taxes.
* Ways to use data to improve how your business works.
* Contract tips and techniques.
* Sources of support for artists and creative business owners.

And more. Way more (you can submit questions before or during our talk, btw).

We’d love to have you. Just sign up and join us when we go live.
