Hey, happy independence day everybody - though I doubt this will get read until tomorrow… maybe even Monday… hell, Tuesday? In mid-summer, the weeks seem to blend together and anything that can be put off, maybe I’m projecting but… hard seltzer water is the worst beverage fad yet, it doesn’t even taste like anything.
I attached a document here with the potential plans for all of 2019, what I wanted to make happen for CreativeMornings '19, which I determined and wrote down last November. You’ll see that some things don’t work out - sometimes for timing, sometimes for lack of interest, sometimes because of a joker in the deck nobody knew about. I’ve been holding out for some plans for this month, themed END, to feature a Tech Entrepreneur talking about experience with when to END, a project, a relationship, a habit, a business. It’s a VERY good theme and should be enriching - Yet for one reason or another, with only myself to blame, there’s currently no speaker planned and this is down to the wire. Telling myself I know I know I know, that you’re gonna be okay anyway. If you have thoughts on someone interesting for this particular theme, please reach out. like tomorrow? yea?!! I’ll be back in touch with all of you next week with a plan for our regular event scheduled for July 19th. It’ll happen, and it will be great. A few more quick things. 1. Nomination Night is coming back this fall. 10/10/19 - It’s a formalized and fun way to include community input to determine what these events can be. We’re adding an art show to Nom Night this year. More on all of that here: Nomnight.eventbrite.com 2. The Patreon Video is Finally Done! Check it out. A bunch of you guys are in it. I really don’t like brand videos, but I think this worked out in a way that I’m proud of. https://www.patreon.com/cmcle I’ll send a specific request to our whole emailing list 3k+ people requesting support now that this is ready. 3. There’s a bunch of new Espresso Videos in progress, working with Kyle Johnston. Once they are done they should look a lot cooler and help recruit more people to pitch your projects! 4. new print partner search isn’t over yet, but it seems close. Talk soon, have a safe holiday.
