Friday, July 26 | 6 – 9 PM
How do you create goals for yourself and stay true to your vision while still allowing the twists, turns, and unexpected opportunities of life to delight you? Learn how to plan and grow your company without drinking your own kool-aid through a myriad of personal anecdotes of joy, failure, and every emotion in between.

Workshop
Freelance and Business and Stuff

Saturday, July 27 | 9 AM – 1PM
In this 4 hour workshop we’ll get super transparent on numbers and tactics (showing you our top secret quotes, project presentation decks, and more). We’ll go through the process of starting, running, and optimizing your own creative business through worksheets, take-home resources, a presentation, low-risk/low-cost tips and tricks, personal anecdotes, and 30-45 minutes of open Q&A at the end (so get your specific business questions ready!).

Hoodzpah is a branding agency with moxie. We relish in creating things that delight the senses and serve the purpose. We’ve branded hundreds of businesses. We’ve also carried on the torch of brands that have come before us, designing on campaigns and projects for cultural pillars like Google, Disney, Vox Media, and Target. Our modern team is hand-selected per project, to best suit each client’s needs. Each project is spearheaded by the Creative Directors that founded and helm our brand: Amy and Jennifer Hood. We enjoy inserting fresh perspective on challenging projects. Problems welcome. Solutions served hot.
