“Deadline Coaching for the Creative Class: Playful Metrics” with Connie Colvin @ AS220
Oct 22 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm
Title: “Deadline Coaching for the Creative Class: Playful Metrics” with Connie Colvin
Date: Wednesday, 10/22
Time: 2 hours

Description:  How do you mark growth?  How do you measure qualitative aspects of your creative practice as opposed to the quantitative aspects?  What are measurable outcomes and why do they sound so boring?  Maybe you’re sitting there thinking that you don’t track metrics at all and you don’t need to!  In this happy hour informational lesson on an aspect of deadline coaching, we’ll talk about why metrics are important, some ideas on setting up structures to stay on top of checking metrics on a schedule and have an opportunity to create at least one playful metric for your own life.

Playful Metrics free workshop @ AS220
Oct 22 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm
Connie Colvin is very serious and a deadline coach extraordinaire.  Trained as a project manager with over eight years of project based experience at nonprofit and media organizations in New York City, Connie translated those skills to assist creative makers and freelancers to increase revenue and make more ideas come to fruition.  Her coaching practice has been based out of Brooklyn for the past three years.  One of her biggest client success stories is an acupuncturist tripled his income in the first three months of coaching.  Focusing on the fun and surprise of life in conjunction with forward traction on your projects, Connie provides support and structure for those outside of traditional organizations.  She’s like the best dream boss you’ve never had.  Connie is currently writing a coaching e-book on starting and maintaining a sustainable daily creative practice.”
