A few months ago, we at Harper Maven Design created a Facebook group with the intention bringing together like minded creative entrepreneurs. Along the way, we found that we struggled slightly with categorizing the group and defining the word “creative”, causing us to hit a bit of a roadblock in terms of creating content and gathering our tribe. With that in mind, we decided to dig deep and really focus on the most important characteristics that we wanted the group to encompass: Creative Living, The Bringing Together of People, and a Supportive & Enthusiastic Environment where our members feel safe to share, ask questions, and collaborate.
The first step in this endeavor (in our opinion) was to create a definition of who served as a “creative” and would enjoy being a part of our group. This was probably the hardest part for us, because creativity can really mean just about anything. Maybe you are an artist, or a writer, or a photographer. Or it’s possible that you are a Graphic Designer or even a Banker who has to think of creative ways to run their business daily. To us, this meant that for the most part, everyone should be welcome, whether you are striving to lead a consistently creative lifestyle or you are running and participating in creative business ownership. The only rule is that you have to be interested in doing life creatively; thinking outside of the box. Hence the name; The Art Of….
We feel that The Art Of…. can be so many things to so many people. The Art Of Painting, The Art of Running, The Art of Surviving, The Art of Thinking, The Art of Wellness, The Art of Treating People Well, you get the idea. In this group you are absolutely welcome to use our inspiration and that of our contributors and writers to cultivate beauty in your own life. We sincerely hope you will and we can’t wait to connect with you all! Welcome!
