What to say about Makeshift Society other than awesome? Rena Tom, Business Consultant, Makeshift Society Founder, and my go to Jedi Master (seriously, this woman is incredible. She pops up as Walking Library under my contacts) is the force behind the Makeshift Society. Joined by the impressive Victoria Smith, Interior Designer of SF Girl by Bay, and Creative Director Suzanne Shade, Makeshift Society will be THE place for creatives to meet and collaborate.
"Makeshift Society is an organization for those who crave camaraderie to fuel their creativity. Our members are curious and creative. They make with their heads and think with their hands." Makeshift Society Mission.
Seriously, what could be better?
Sarah and I are delighted to not only be members, but also Makeshift Society teachers. We are bringing the ever popular Success Squad over to Makeshift Society! Exclusively for members, each month Sarah and I will facilitate a forum for for members to present new ideas, design challenges, business concerns, road blocks and general questions about their business to participants. Acting a a hospital grand rounds, presenters will seek feedback, collaboration and ideas from the group. Sarah is teaching a class about using Instagram to help promote your business (October 6), and I will be teaching a class about creating boundaries for a better business (October 11). Classes are also being offered by fellow Success Squad darlings Genevieve Brazleton and Shelly Kerry of Lightbox SF and Kelly Berg of Arte Styling.
