Transforming a creative passion into a business
Join us for our last Women4Women happy hour and networking event of the year to hear from two women who have discovered how to turn their artistic work into their career. Rachel Shaw owns a franchise, AR Workshop Garland, a boutique arts and crafts workshop. Nital Patel is a painter who owns a studio and gallery, Nita Patel Fine Art. We'll hear their stories about the pleasures and pitfalls of doing what they love on a daily basis.
