It takes guts to do what you do. It takes courage to define your own path for creating work and making a living. But you keep pushing forward, because you couldn't imagine doing it any other way.

We love that about you.





Giant Steps is an interactive conference for creative entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial creatives. At Giant Steps, you'll hear inspiring—and honest--stories; connect with potential collaborators; and learn about practical topics relevant to your success. You'll mix with chefs, designers, dancers, architects, photographers, playwrights, film-makers, inventors, hip hop artists and more for maximum learning and creative cross-pollination.

Building a creative career and business can feel like a solitary pursuit on a challenging road. It's filled with many unknowns and a lot of learning by trial and error. Some days, it feels like it's easy to make mistakes and hard to make money. We've been there. That's why we built an event and community where talented, path-forging folks can connect and learn from each other.

Join us at Giant Steps--it's like a dose of vitamins for your work and a booster shot of motivation for your soul.
