Freelancers: Join us for a 2-hour Intensive on June 27th all about authentic selling to turn a prospective client into a paying client!

We'll cover how to lead potential client conversations, skill sets and tools available to you in those discussions, and a play by play, ready-to-use template created for you so you have an outline for every client conversation you're going to have moving forward.

This is a tried and true process that I have developed in co creation with my clients and I'm so excited to share it with you on June 27th. RSVP here.

Colleen Goldhorn (she/her) is a freelance graphic designer and photographer who lives and breathes all things outdoor adventure. She has over a decade of experience working with clients on design, photography, and branding projects, and founded her business with the mission of strategically connecting outdoor brands to their target audience.

Through her business, Colleen Goldhorn Creative Co., she draws her inspiration from time spent outdoors, and specializes in working with clients who share her love of backpacking, road tripping, and adventure travel.
