GROW WILD IS A CREATIVE BUSINESS WORKSHOP founded BY NATASHA MARTIN OF VIOLET TINDER STUDIOS.

 

It was created with one main goal: to demystify working for yourself so you can grow to new heights.

Going freelance and turning a passion into a career isn’t for the faint of heart! There are so many questions and few clear answers or places to turn. But with a little know-how and a lot of determination, YOU can totally do it.

What started as a small workshop (learn more here), has grown into more- a community of people and resources, full of fun, learning and sharing. Creating your own path isn’t easy but it IS an incredible, worthwhile adventure- especially when you have a community alongside of you.

With events featuring a long list of talented creatives and entrepreneurs featured and at events, and an online community full of tangible resources and creative inspiration, this is where you’ll get an up-close-and-personal experience learning from others who have walked similar paths.

What You’ll Learn

LEARN THE A TO Z OF GOING YOUR OWN WAY…

From social media and marketing yourself, to carving out a unique brand identity, to money (!) and how to plan in a way to set yourself up for success.

We’re embarking on a new path- growing from events, into an online community and trove of resources (but don’t worry, there are still events)! Our goal is create an online destination for all things freelance- the who/what/how of going your own way, of taking your creative passions, and working for yourself!

While there are many great resources for the career-minded, our focus is on those magical creative people- the ones with the drive and the determination who just so happen to be entering uncharted territory.

Here, you won’t learn how to climb a ladder- you’ll learn how to build your own.

We cover topics like:

  • product-based businesses, the unique challenges

  • photography + taking better images for your brand/business

  • inspiration- finding new sources and staying inspired (while juggling biz demands!)

  • money- figuring out your rate and negotiating contracts

  • how and what to invest in when you’re starting

  • social media- how to maximize it, tips + tricks

  • networking- how to build contacts + clients when you’re first starting

  • and more!

Build your community

Let’s be real, part of what makes working for yourself so challenging is that it can be lonely. Whether you are a true solo-preneur, or have a team, it can be isolating to be in charge of steering the ship and responsible for the health and growth of your business.

  • At Grow Wild, you’ll find your tribe of others who understand that path, and unlock one of the keys to getting through it!

  • At our events, you can schedule one-on-one meetings with speakers and really get down to the nitty-gritty of what you want to know

This is what networking is REALLY about- genuine connections with others who get. your. world. 🙌🏻

And hey you!

We’re in the process of building a REAL, LIVE ONLINE COMMUNITY- if you’re a creative freelancer who wants in, sign up below for more details!

How it began

In 2014, I was pregnant with my first daughter and about to leave my exhausting corporate job, certain that months of baby bliss, cute tiny clothes, and peaceful new motherhood lay ahead. Who cared about forgoing a full-time income and losing regular contact with the outside adult world? Not me, I just knew this new path was what I was actually meant for… KEEP READING
