I'd like to help you start your own Big Vision Circle. On August 17 at 5:30 PM PT/8:30 PM ET I will be teaching a one-hour teleclass about How to Start a Big Vision Circle to Support Your Creative Dream.

The 5 benefits I've gotten out of being a part of a Big Vision Circle have been:
- Resources and ideas
It's really true that two (or more!) heads are better than one. Whenever I hit an obstacle I can't figure out for myself, at least one person in the group has a name of someone for me to talk to, a book I should read, or a way of looking at the problem that I would never have thought of by myself.
Because the group has gone on for so long, and members usually stay at least 3 years, I have been able to see the cycles of their successes and challenges, and they have seen mine. We are able to remind each other how far we've each come, and how we've weathered the storms of the past.
- Time to Focus on My Creative Dreams
My life gets busy, as I'm sure yours does, and it can be hard to take the time to think about and take action on my creative career dreams. Our monthly meetings force me to make the time to think, and talk about my creative career goals, and to fill out my Big Vision Worksheet.
During our meetings we talk about how we did (or didn't!) do the things we said we would do at the end of the last meeting. We congratulate each other on our successes and offer support for our challenges.
- A Creative Career Community
Many times when I get together with friends, we end up talking about our relationships (family, love, friends). Although we do discuss our personal lives in our Big Vision Circle, it's almost always in relationship to our creative careers, which is really refreshing. On the other hand, our group has also celebrated birthdays, weddings, and the birth of children, as well as provided support during breakups, illnesses, and other challenging life events.
During the teleclass we'll talk about:
- Why a Big Vision Circle can help you reach your creative career goals.
- How to find people to join your circle.
- The pros and cons of virtual vs. face-to-face Big Vision Circles.
- How to facilitate your Circle.
- Problem-solving (e.g. What if people stop coming?).
- Plus, I'll answer your questions about starting your own Big Vision Circle.
