How It Works
Each week TB2 will send you a link to a video interview with a new guest around a themed topic. Think Big encourages participants to discuss the videos each week with a prompted discussion group online, where you can connect with other members of the series and have a community discussion about the topics that come up for you each week. Ben and Molly will be watching the group discussions as well as joining in.
In addition to the video interviews and discussions each week, TB2 will include downloadable bonus material in the form of a series of worksheets. The worksheets are for you to keep and work through at your own pace. By the end of the six weeks, you will have new inspiration for expanding your creative business and a clear direction for moving forward--on to BIG THINGS!
