    The Cultivate Mastermind is designed for fellow creatives to come together and work with one another to create a community that helps us all succeed on our digital platforms. This past year we have learned how important our digital presence is when it comes to communicating what is happening in our business with our clients and communities. This mastermind is made to help everyone come up with fresh, out of the box ideas that will help elevate your business even more, while also creating connections with other business owners. We believe that community comes before competition, and this mastermind will show just that.

    Cultivate Mastermind is a 4 week program. Every Monday we will meet via Zoom to and discuss the topic of the week, help each other brainstorm what our action items will be, and work to actively implement new ideas into our business. Members of Cultivate Mastermind will also have access to the Cultivate Slack Channel and Facebook group to ask questions and share our weekly wins.  This Mastermind is will only be open to six attendees.

    About Kat:

    Kat Drake is a young photographer based out of Bethel, CT. Her passion for photography started at a young age and progressed through adulthood. While studying communications in college, Kat picked up an old camera and began shooting part time to help pay for school. While she had originally planned to pursue law school after undergrad, the lure of owning her own photography business became stronger and stronger. In one of her proudest moments, Kat went full time as a photographer in 2019 after getting married and hasn't looked back. Kat's main focus in the photography industry is to capture couples, families, and fellow entrepreneurs with a lifestyle view. Kat's communication background has allowed her to blend her passion for photos with a knack for content creation and social media marketing. In conjunction with her photography business, Kat has also started a second business focused on helping other small businesses succeed within the digital world by creating social media strategies, offering social media tutoring, and creating content for those in need.
