The Line Hotel
3515 Wilshire Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90010

Want to build your audience in a way that feels true to you and your values? In this workshop taught by award-winning designer, sustainability advocate and fashion MBA Gretchen Jones, you’ll learn how to build a strong audience through activating both qualitative and quantitative information within your creative business. 

No matter how large or small your business is, this workshop will give you the opportunity to get even more active and engaged. You will learn methods for embracing and unveiling what really matters to you, and how doubling down on your values can improve bottom lines. Gretchen will also discuss what customers really want from messaging and product and, through it all, how to become a better leader.

We left Gretchen's workshop beaming, inspired, fired up, full of hope, and ready to take action --- @fruitsuper

Gretchen Jones is the business Doula. I felt more invigorated and inspired than I have in a long time to really look at my business practice/ethos head-on and make some shifts to drop into my authenticity as a creator and entrepreneur.  I think she did an incredible job translating and highlighting the themes that were acting as boundaries and obstacles for me (from both what I had written and spoken). It’s been a few months since our conversation and I am still digesting, processing, and working with the material in a potent way that feels nourishing and growth-oriented. – Amelia Davis, Two Hands Full
