It’s about the conversation!

And we’re digging into the KEY elements that will change your business for the better in 2021.

Drawing a Line in the Sand

With Sandra Funk and Beth Diana Smith
Whether you’re in business for two years or fifteen, there comes a moment when you know it’s time to slow down and focus on the big picture. But how? And what do you do? Join Sandra and Beth as they share real, useful details—and how they they found profitability, confidence and abundance.

A Checklist is Not a Defined Process

With Sara Lynn Brennan and Rincey Phillip
Sara and Rincey have done so much more than just show up in their business. They’ve created duplicatable processes for every step in their design firm. Since January 2020 more than 70 designers have taken the LuAnn University course, Process Leads to Profits with Sara. Seasoned business owners, like 13-year business veteran Rincey, have changed their business with Sara’s proven techniques. Now you can learn key strategies for your new or established business—and hear why the results are clarity, an elevated client experience and profitability.

Work-Life Balance? No, Work-Life Alignment is the Real Goal!

With Desi Creswell and Katie Menon
Join Desi and Katie to discuss the difficult questions you MUST ask to create a business—within a life—that both fulfills you as a CEO and as a human. What happens when we grow our businesses, take on more and more—and working 24-7 becomes the norm? It’s unsustainable. These ladies know you don’t have to sacrifice personal values and relationships in order to be a great CEO and business leader. Learn how to create more alignment in your life through their expertise, advice, and proven experience.

How to Lead and Manage Your Company, For Teams of 1 or 21!

With Eileen Hahn and Christine Lin
Creating a successful team doesn’t happen by accident. Learning to recognize the talents, skills and personalities of each team member and create a space for each person to thrive and to be successful…these are your responsibilities as the CEO. The good news? The rewards are tenfold. Join in as Eileen and Christine share stories and proven strategies to lead with love and create a company you are proud of. Powerful for solopreneurs contemplating their first hire and crucial information for seasoned designers already managing a growing team.

Leveraging Social Media to Grow Your Business

With Darla Powell and Justin Q. Williams
Both Darla and Justin know first-hand the value and the rewards of a rocking social media platform. They also know the key is to start with knowing the results you want from your social presence. Join in as we learn how to evaluate, how to execute, and how to capitalize on social media to grow your creative business. With successful collaborations, features in numerous publications, and a social media presence that is both down to earth and dazzling, Justin and Darla will share their thoughts on leveraging social media to earn business.

Contracts Set a Foundation for Success

Jamie Lieberman and Blanche Garcia
We all know our number one goal is client satisfaction. Actually, it’s more than that, isn’t it? It is over-the-top, stupendous, client delight, right?! An often-overlooked key to this is a rock-solid contract. The foundation for successful projects is clear expectations—and clear expectations are found in your contract. If you heard Blanche on the podcast, you remember that she knows a thing or two about being clear at the beginning of the project. Join Jamie and Blanche as they discuss how a well-designed contract creates open communication and clear expectations, as well as mutual respect and trust.

Creating Authentic Visibility

With Amanda Berlin and Dane Austin
We all hear, “You have to be visible! You have to put yourself out there!” in order to be successful. Yet doing this in a way that feels right for YOU can be challenging and often confusing. Join Amanda and Dane as they explore the many ways—not just the obvious ones—to increase your visibility, earn more business and be comfortable and confident doing it. Hugely valuable if you are a rising designer, starting to build your client base. Perhaps of even more value to you if you are an experienced, seasoned designer like Dane.

Value Yourself by Identifying Your High Value Bucket Activities

With Amber De La Garza and Jenny Slingerland
Productivity is significantly more profound than simply daily action item. It is found when we take a hard look at our beliefs, our patterns and our choices. Learn why productivity is a journey and not a to-do list. Learn how to consistently dedicate yourself to your highest value activities to make the biggest and best changes. Join Amber and Jenny as they share thorough exercises, stories and strategies ideas that can immediately impact your creative business for the better. This session is for all business owners. If, after nearly 40 years in business, LuAnn can learn something from Amber every month, so can you.

Pipelines, Budgets and Reports, Oh My!

With Kimberly Merlitti and Lisa Gilmore
Do you remember Lisa from LuAnn Live last year? Remember how brave she was when she told us her “Eat, Pray, Love” story and how she was struggling with her finances? Even #seasoneddesigners struggle to master this, so don’t worry, you’re not alone. Listen as Kim and Lisa share structured, applicable advice and tools to help you project and schedule your pipeline, set and talk about budgets, and create the reports you need to evaluate your business in real time. Like Lisa says: “Now I have finance Fridays and I love them!” Learn to track and assess your numbers so you can breathe and finally show up as the CEO you always wanted to be.

What can I expect?

We’ve put together a truly unique format—with every topic being covered by a hand-picked expert, a designer who is living it and LuAnn herself. Depending on your ticket level, there will be opportunities for Q&A during the sessions and smaller sessions, as well as discussion, laughs and key takeaways for everyone!

It’s going to be ridiculously fun and a total game-changer for your social media, finances, mindset and more.

But I’ve been to events like this before! It’s all very exciting and then I never actually take action on anything I learn.

If you know anything about LuAnn, then you know she is all about action. Everything about this event is structured to create spectacular, real change for you and your business.

How do I register?

Scroll up to choose a ticket level and click on the green button to purchase. We’ll be in touch with more details as the event gets closer. And we’ll be sending a questionnaire to our VIP attendees to customize your experience.

When and where is this happening?

LuAnn Nigara Live will be a fully virtual event—taking place in your office, your living room, or where ever you prefer to settle in and focus!

LuAnn will be broadcasting live from the great state of New Jersey, but you can be literally anywhere. No hotel costs. No flight. Just log on when the show starts.

When does everything start and finish?

As always, we’re planning a full day of panels, surprises, and important takeaways. The show will begin at 10:00am EST and end at approximately 8:00pm for the first two days. The VIP day will begin in the morning and conclude in the afternoon.

Will I get a recording?

Yes, you will! Expect to receive a link to your recordings within 21 days of the event end. LuAnn wants to digest, organize and make sure the recording itself will serve as an ongoing resource as you turn inspiration into action.

What is the cost?

There are three ticket levels available, each with their own goodies and price point. Scroll up to choose a ticket and register!

For Early Birds: Tell me more about the group accountability sessions after the event!

For those who bought an Early Bird ticket by December 31st, LuAnn will host and moderate three live Zoom meetings—centered around implementing on the content from the event.

Information is worth very little without corresponding action. But sometimes we can all use a little help…and some structured accountability, right? Join LuAnn for three virtual followup sessions to share your takeaways, ask questions on how to execute your ideas, and learn how your colleagues have used the ideas from LuAnn Live to make a positive change in their business.

Sessions will take place in February, March and April. If you bought an early bird ticket by December 31st, stay tuned for details!

You mentioned the release of LuAnn’s third book?

That’s right! LuAnn’s third book “A Well-Designed Business®: The Power Talk Friday Experts Vol 2” will be released on the day of the event. Some of our favorite experts on the big, important topics—from productivity to strategic billing to leadership—have contributed a chapter to the book. You will learn directly from them, from the successful designers who are doing it all, and from LuAnn herself…live.

For All-Access: Can we choose our 45-minute lunch session?

For this session, you will be assigned to a specific group on either day one or two of the event. You’ll be with no more than 30 colleagues in a session run by one of our amazing industry experts…from A Well-Designed Business®: The Power Talk Friday Experts—Volume 1 or Volume 2. Expect a ton of value while you enjoy your lunch!

For All-Access: What if my name is called for a free coaching session or a door prize and I’m not present?

Just like LuAnn Live 2019, we’ll be giving out prizes to members of the audience. Be there live at the All-Access level to receive free coaching, prizes and more. If we call a name and the person is not present, we’ll move on to our next potential winner.

I’ve got my ticket! Where can I find access information?

We’ll be in touch over the coming weeks with more details. Before the event, we’ll send instructions and options for access, depending on your ticket level.
