So mother nature is the real boss so we postponed a week for the rain. Join us May 2nd for our @dm202live #happyhour... DC is known as a networking city; however, asking “What do you do?” isn't really who we are. In the creative space - and in life - building connections with people is so much more than that. Join us as we bring together some power players in the District to learn how to network more authentically and productively. There will be small group discussions and then the opportunity to mix and mingle with both our thought leaders and each other while enjoying the view from The Hive rooftop. We’ll talk about how to authentically connect with people and build the relationships you need to both thrive and help your project or business grow. #DM202Live #ConnectBetter #BeAuthentic

Super excited for the launch panel next week!!

Welcome to @DM202Live, a growing community of #DCCreatives coming together to share our experiences, stories, tips and tricks to succeeding in DC. Every month Morgan (@shmorgan85) and Diego (@diegodowntown) will create opportunities for creatives, both established and new, to talk with people about things they do well. Our first conversation is on #BuildingCommunity on and offline, which is a major goal for many people in the creative space. Whether you are launching a new business, blog or social media account or simply growing the platform you already have, your audience is your community. Without their support, your business and dreams, would not survive or thrive. Join us as we bring together four people who have built a solid community in the Distict to discuss how they got started, how they determined who their people were and how they ensure that their communities continue to thrive and grow. #DM202Live
