OUR BUILDING PROCESS

We are here to be a forum of people who have or want to start their own business or even side hustle to earn extra income. We are building events that support this type of creative, collaborative, and community driven environment of motivated self starters and those who love to learn new things!

Phase 1: Build Awareness

Our phase 1 goal is to build and connect audiences to drive conversations forward.

Phase 2: Larger Events

Our phase 2 will roll into a series of larger events in the greater Red Bank area with speakers and experts.

Phase 3: A Garden Shared Space

Our phase 3 we will be looking to locate and open a physical ‘Garden Collaborative Space’ we are seeking a foundation to be part of.
