Creative Business Crash Course
Self-Paced Crash Course to Build a Successful, Sustainable & Beautiful Business for New Creative Entrepreneurs
After polling numerous creatives to find out what new business owners desire to know most, along with combining our own personal experience as entrepreneurs, we have created a course that has been tested, refined, and perfected! 8 months of hard work later, we are excited to introduce to you the Creative Business Crash Course! This course is taught by ten industry professionals, comprised of 12 recorded videos and worksheets.
Let me ask you:
Do you struggle with defining your business direction?
Do you dream of leaving your 9-5 but you worry about being able to make ends meet?
Are you constantly running on empty, unable to give to those who really need you?
Do you desire to know how to launch (or relaunch) your business successfully?
Have you been in business for a few months/years and feel stuck - unsure which move to make next?
Do you want to have an efficient and productive work schedule?
Are you overworked, overwhelmed, and in need of guidance?
Do you want to feel prepared and equipped before starting your dream venture?
Are you still deciding what that is?
If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, this course is guaranteed to change your business!

Carrie Moe / Owner + Creative Director of Type A Society
Carrie Moe could be found organizing and throwing tea parties for her baby dolls at the age of six, so you could say she was born with the party bug. After working four years for various florists, wedding planners, and corporate firms in the Washington, DC area, she went on to complete her education in Event Management and establish Fleurish Events in 2009, which has grown and gone on to become Type A Society, founded in 2014. When asked, she won’t admit that she color-coordinates her closet or carries around an old-fashioned day-planner, and she may or may not have painted one wall of her room five times to find the right color of grey. There has never been a flower she hasn’t fallen in love with and her husband on many occasions has been politely asked to “STOP THE CAR!!” so she can forage some wild flowers that have caught her eye.
