You know how to help others live beautifully through intentional design, it’s your passion, and you’re really, really good at it. But how do you take that passion and grow it into a successful, thriving business and a thoughtful brand? That’s where we come in. We’re here to inspire, educate and encourage you in your journey to becoming your own tailored version of success; and to guide you in your pursuit of spending your days doing exactly what you love.
Enjoy a boutique-style learning experience that feels like a vacation. Our speaker sessions will be held at the beautiful and spacious event room at Lido House Hotel. This boutique-style hotel boasts the best of a coastal lifestyle and is Newport Beach at its best... casual, comfortable and chic in equal measure! Explore the hotel here. Our workshop location is just a stroll away from Lido Marina Village, which offers al fresco dining waterside and the opportunity to explore a mix of charming shops.
Lido House will be providing delicious food & drink for us during workshop hours, all of which is included in your workshop ticket. See schedule below!
We've hand-picked industry experts to share their knowledge and take you on the journey of how they got there. As creative entrepreneurs, we all started with a blank slate. We've poured our hearts into businesses that are now thriving because we took that first step—to believe in ourselves and say out loud: "I CAN make a living doing what I love." This is your opportunity to learn from creatives you admire, in-person, face-to-face, real success and failure stories shared. We're pulling back the curtain on how they took their business to the next level.

The first year of business for most designers can be the most challenging. But think about it this way—if you start with your entrepreneurial toolbox only halfway full, it’ll likely take you longer to achieve your goals and in the long run it’ll take longer to build a profitable business. Investing in ourselves is one of the hardest things to do, but one of the wisest decisions we can make as business owners. Not only will our workshop equip you with the tools you need, but you’ll get a behind the biz look at how our incredible experts have blazed the trail. The answer? Now is the perfect time.
We’ll put it to you this way—our speakers are actually excited to learn from one another at this workshop! They each approach their business models slightly differently and have various strengths they will be touching on. While we will be covering a lot of basics on getting a design business up and running, and further growing your entrepreneurial game, this experience is so much more than that. It’s an opportunity to learn different processes, next level ideas and creative ways to approach your business goals. We’ve listed our speaker topics above in our rough sample timeline as well and we’d be happy to answer any additional questions HERE or by using our chat box on this page.
Yes! We have a 2-installment payment plan option available for our August workshop. Because this is a more condensed payment plan of only two payments, we have not added on any additional fees, which normally are added on payment plans. You will be charged the first installment when you signup and the remaining installment the following month. CLICK HERE to learn more and enroll.
There's no denying the design industry is full of educational resources and tools—from design markets to online courses and more. It's important to embrace all of those resources, but we saw a gap in the fusion of learning & connecting, in-person. Our workshop may only be a few days, but those three days can change SO much. We specifically designed a boutique-style event with luxe touches because we believe this is a moment to be celebrated. Investing in yourself and your business is a huge step and one that we don't take lightly. Our speakers and industry experts have all been hand-picked for their incredible ability to thoughtfully share their experiences with you, candidly—and, give you actionable steps.
We get it! If an in-person workshop isn't in the cards for you right now, we completely understand. We currently do not offer online courses, but hope to in the future. We decided to start our educational offerings in the form of in-person workshops because we've seen first-hand how face-to-face events have truly been catalysts for business owners. As mentioned, many of us have attended or spoken at other events and we can say with confidence that nothing is comparable to the real conversations you will have, the laughter, the tears, and the openness of your fears, struggles, goals and achievements with your fellow entrepreneurs and mentors.
Yay! We can't wait to meet you! We will be securing a room block with a discounted rate at Lido House Hotel, which is where our classroom sessions are held. Our hotel neighbors the Lido Marina Village area with charming shops and restaurants. Please note: Our room block discounted rate is on a first come, first served basis.
