Membership

When you join the DR, you’ll be in a group of your peers—creative business owners who most closely mirror your business model, goals and challenges.

We find that creative entrepreneurs usually fall into one of four categories. We realize there isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach to creative entrepreneurship, so we encourage you to select the category that most closely describes you. We want to make sure you get the most value out of being a member!

Select the category that best describes you:

This group is for you if:

  • You’re wondering what the DR is all about and how it can help your business.
  • You’re hesitant to talk about your business with a group of “strangers.”

If this sounds like you, then we invite you to join the DR as a Facebook member. In addition to our private, members-only Facebook group, you will receive access to webinars, live trainings, seminars and workshops PLUS the monthly Group meeting video recordings.
