Event description


It seems the hardest part to getting your craft or gift out into the world is actually finding your audience... and that can be scary. Putting yourself "out there" is challenging, but necessary.

Like most of us, you probably OVER-think it, right? Why is it we always seem to get in our own way???

Whether it's your music, painting, courses, or services we all need an audience... to build a movement, an income, and a business.

Who's following you? Who's listening to you? Who's engaged with you?

Our brand building experts are Dan R. Morris and Rachel Martin, principles at Bloggingconcentrated.com. Their mission is to help motivated people and business owners perfect the little things that make a big difference, improving income and business models.

Can't wait to see you!


We’ve heard from a multitude of creatives that building their business, and knowing how to do so, is their biggest struggle. You’re a creative, not a business strategist, we understand. Which is why we started BizBuild - to help you, the struggling artist, writer, musician, or (fill in the blank).... to build your brand, to know the right systems to implement.

We're here to offer practical strategies to turn your art into a business.

This is not just another event... It’s a night to fast track you toward successful entrepreneurship.

Theme: Building an Audience

Speakers Include:

If you...

  • are a creative who is ready to make money with your craft

  • are a blogger, vlogger, photographer, author, artist, designer, musician, podcaster, maker, or content creator

  • are a creative who is tired of looking like you have it together, but seeing little profit

  • have talent, but struggle with the business side of things

  • are tired of sifting through articles, Facebook groups, etc. for business tips

  • want face-to-face help from experts

… then this event is for you.

What is BizBuild?

BizBuild is a collaborative community of likeminded creatives with business expertise. Here, you will find help boosting your income and business savvy. We offer exclusive events multiple times a year solely for Nashville creatives who are ready to generate cashflow with their gift.

We are a brand new network focusing on the creative force and wealth creation.

We heard from creatives and recognized that there simply isn’t sufficient support to energize the creative class in Nashville. Sure, there are lots of events and plenty of inspiring talks. But we saw a gaping void in the number of organizations committed to walking creatives through business building.

You need to understand that your creative talent makes you one of the most powerful people on the planet. We think you may see the world differently than most. We believe you have something special to contribute. We want to help you. Together, we are joining forces to share knowledge, connect resources and take action.
