The year for you.
We’ve hosted 7 conferences in 3 years, and while picking a favorite may feel like picking a favorite child (or dog ... or flavor of ice cream), we’ve got a feeling 2018 is going to be THE year.
Creative at Heart began in January 2015 and since then, we’ve traveled to 7 cities around the country & have over 300 alumni who are currently movers & shakers in the industry. We engage in educational sessions led by the leaders you stalk online (um, who really are JUST human, too), provide smaller panel groups specific to your craft, and hands-on break-out sessions to stretch those creative muscles.
This is for you if you’ve been in business 3-4 years, and you’re ready to re-group, re-direct & re-ignite your business flame.
This is for you if full-time is still a budding dream, and you’re tired of saying “no” to the “what-if’s” and “coulda-woulda’s”.
This is for you if you’re in the wedding industry OR not in the wedding industry (promise!), because being a creative at heart is more than just wedding day timelines & off-camera flash.
Who is this for?
This isn’t for you if you’re not fired up about being a #bosslady & would rather be learning the hard lessons alone.
This isn’t for you if you’re just fine working from home alone day in & day out without ever getting any real, “girl, me too!” moments with women who think just like you.
This isn’t for you if you’d rather keep your hard earned dollars in the bank, never reaping the benefits of investing in an experience that leads to even more dollars.
Who is this not for?
We cater to anyone & everyone who calls themselves a “creative at heart” - from designers to photographers to hand-letterers to planners to strategists to shop owners
Both our Keynote & Breakout sessions teach on topics that can be carried across a wide array of industries; you’ll also receive one-on-one time in panel sessions specific to your craft.
We have our sights set on North Carolina in the fall - lush leaves, gorgeous weather & 100 new (and old) friends! Over the past 4 years, we've learned a thing or two about what we want in a conference experience. Wanna know what stands out to us the most?
Just like 2017, we're focusing on one conference & one conference only this year. We’re building a conference that's raising the bar in the education industry... will you join us?
I love seeing like-minded women challenge one another -
I’m an independant lady myself; I get pretty excited when I figure something out on my own (insert office dance party for one). Without a doubt, I love what I do & do what I love. Having boss lady status works for me & I’m sure it works for you.
But you know what?
10 months after pressing submit on my LLC application for Dear Sweetheart Events, I realized that going at it alone might be the death of me - and my dreams. As much as I thrive under pressure, the late nights spent googling were becoming too much. I needed help.
Sure, I have a cool sounding title & get to meet women (like you) all over the country. But C@H isn’t about me, it’s about YOU. All of you. Every single one.
I can’t wait to see you there!
Want to know more about Kat?! Connect with her here!
Let’s be honest, Matt got roped into all this because of his crazy wife’s dreams! But you know what? He’s her biggest fan. Between running the AV, helping source (and eat) the meals & driving her all over the country (literally), he’s her knight in shining Redskins attire. He’s been there for every conference & spends the downtime with the C@H Husbands wearing bathrobes at the Late Night Treat (you don’t want to miss it!).
Emily is Kat’s all around go-to girl! From emails to invoices to marketing, Emily works hard behind the scenes assisting Kat in every aspect of the Creative at Heart experience. She keeps our instagram looking fabulous, sends Kat emoji-filled texts, & serves our attendees effortlessly. She’s a C@H Round 3 alumni and her very favorite part of conference weekend is the open, honest & heartfelt conversations that take place in panel groups.
