“The DR is more than an accountability group—It’s a community where you build relationships and friendships with fellow independent designers and creatives. The culture is supportive and dependable and I can rely on the members to come through even on short notice when I need assistance. The group sessions are a safe and private space to speak frankly about specific struggles and questions that other open forums and groups tiptoe around. The DR has all the moral support you get from being employed—minus the office politics!”
“I love the friendly accountability that Designers Roundtable provides. It’s refreshing to see how other independent creatives are handling many of the same challenges that I face in growing a small business. The goals I set were ambitious and I would not have achieved them if I didn’t have to literally face the group each month!”
“At the end of 2013, I stumbled upon some information about a group that Jenny created called the Designers Roundtable. I decided to join and it’s been one of the best things I could have done for my business.”
“Being a freelance designer, a lot of times you can start to feel like you are in it alone. With the Designer’s Roundtable I have a fantastic group of other designers that help keep me motivated, provide encouragement and help challenge me to reach my business goals. I look forward to each meeting and the next day feel focused and ready to push myself closer to my goals.”
“It keeps me moving forward. My accountability partners and I change the way we track it often so that we continue to be engaged and not get bored.”
“It has motivated me to work through the problems in my business to arrive at solutions that otherwise might have gone on the back burner and it keeps me thinking about new, tangible goals that I want to reach.”
“When I joined Designers Roundtable, my focus was solely on client work; I hardly thought about my own company. After several terms with the DR, something unexpected happened—I developed a love for running my business: the processes, client service and marketing. This focus has led to more referrals and better clients (and a happier me). The DR community has truly changed the course of my business for the better.”
