June 26, 2017 at 8pm EST is the date for our next #blkcreatives chat. Here’s everything you need to know.
TOPIC: Love, Lust and Creativity
Here at #blkcreatives, we’re all about the telling the truth. If we’re being honest (which we always are), our personal and romantic lives can have an incredible impact on our bottom line. Knowing that, how can we find a balance now that summer is here? This chat will dig into this topic to provide insight that many of us need.
WHAT & WHO: #blkcreatives is an agency that empowers Creatives to connect the dots in every aspect of their business and be seen by those who matter the most.
Born in April 2015, our monthly Twitter chat discussions revolve around a specific topic that relates to our personal development and growth as people and professionals.
Here are our four guests for this chat:
