Best $$ makers

Marketing/promotion
Forms (releases, contracts, order forms, etc.)
Budgeting

I would love to make a session like this, as I have little or no experience in the business side of things.

if i can manage to make it i will since i do have a couple of questions regarding copywrite, liablity, release form issues, etc and i have no experience in the business end of these things ... sounds like a good discussion i think

MOD

admin
HBRstudios 10 years ago
Nate (from your Beaner's thread): "Set up will be the night of the 31st (Wednesday) ."

Has this changed?
Amanda~Christine 10 years ago
I could go for an hour, then I have the model meeting at 7.
admin
N. Lindstrom Photo 10 years ago
Yeah I brought it up at the last meeting, I guess I forgot to change it. Sorry.

We can:

1) Hang on the 30th
2) Hang on the 31st
3) I could collect everyones work that week and hang sometime in between

The 30th isnt set in stone, its just an alternative to doing it New Years Eve. Doesnt matter to me which way we do it.
Captain Campion 10 years ago
i can swing the 30th ... Tuesdays are my day off
fallfaceforward 10 years ago
i plan to hang at beaner's on the 30th- perhaps brian if you still need a location to hold this informational workshop you could see if the upstairs room at beaner's is free for that night.
admin
HBRstudios 10 years ago
There is an idea -- I will check.
admin
HBRstudios 10 years ago
Yes, we will have the meeting upstairs of Beaner's and work it out to hang stuff at the same time! I have updated the header of this post as well.

Great meeting, but next time i guess i should do some research about small business first...
admin
HBRstudios 9 years ago
One of the points was to get you to look more into what it takes to run a small business so take what we went through and run with it!

Thanx for being a part of it.

Thanks for hosting it, it was very useful.
