Prepare to Shift Your Business

Into Growth

This multi-day workshop is for entrepreneurs who need the support and space to begin transitioning their business from a hobby/startup phase to growth. This workshop hand-holds attendees through the details and insights of MindSHIFT & WorkSHIFT principles outlined in the Prepare To Shift workbook.


The Artisan Collective (TAC) is Chicago's South Shore community's retail + art hub that prepares creative entrepreneurs to successfully operate a storefront. TAC connects entrepreneurs with the resources and opportunities they need to pilot or improve operating a storefront with minimal risk. This program lays the foundation for businesses in the early stages of determining if/how a storefront is right for them and helps entrepreneurs with existing storefronts evaluate and improve their operations.
