If you own your own creative business, you're probably interested in learning how to make more money doing what you're already doing. Maybe you're having issues closing sales, generating leads, marketing, making payroll, or other with other aspects of your business. The LessMoney Conference can help you learn to better deal with all those issues and more.

There's plenty of time for answering questions, looking at each attendees individual approaches, and making sure you have a clear view of how to make your business more profitable. This intimate setting provides so many advantages over the large, impersonal conferences usually available. Check out the promotional video: The LessMoney Conference covers:

After blogging for a few years about running our business we noticed the highest traffic blog post were the ones where we talked in depth about the challenges we faced. So in late 2011, we decided to host a few small workshops about the business side of freelancing and growing a web consultancy (design or development shop).Other conference speakers include Geoff DiMasi, of p'unkave, Carl Smith of ngen works, and Chad Pytel of Thoughtbot. They'll reveal all their secrets for running a more successful, more enjoyable business. And see what some past Conference attendees have had to say about the LessMoney Conference:
