Creatively Connect @ Creative Connects

October 13, 2010 Comments off

An event I attend regularly is Creative Connects.  What is Creative Connects you ask?  Well, it is “a free social event hosted by The BOSS Group for creative, marketing and interactive professionals.”  Creative Connects is throughout the U.S. with events in:

  • D.C. Metro Area
  • Philadelphia
  • Boston
  • Atlanta
  • Baltimore
  • Dallas
  • Northern New Jersey (basically Newark)

About every three months, Creative Connects events are hosted in synchronicity in their respective locations at the exact same time.  I ventured out to my first back in May with my coworker Lori (of Lorikeet Media).  We had a pretty good time and got to mingle with other creative professionals, hand out some business cards, and eat some tasty finger foods.  The best part is that it’s free to attend (along with free food).

They also always have special guests at every event who have some sort of creative professional background.  For example, at the last event Jason Ferrera, Creative Director of Match.com was in attendance and representatives from CDIA Boston University.  I’m especially looking forward to next month’s event since I’m actively seeking any business development individuals/opportunities.  The individuals in attendance are also eager for freelance work, so this is right up my alley.  The demographic is usually 21-34, so its great for generation Y and X.  I’ll follow-up with a post on when I actually attend the event, so keep an eye out for it.

ROAR: In The Beginning

September 29, 2010 Comments off

Hello Everyone!  My name is Ryan Oliver Alexander Rosado and I am the founder, CEO, creator, president, and director of ROAR Marketing.  If you didn’t catch on ROAR are my initials.  ROAR Marketing is a business I decided to start earlier this year.  This has been such a labor of love for me, so I thought it would be a good idea to chronicle it through a blog.  I want to give everyone an inside look inside this new part of my life and all the hard work that goes into starting a business.

Before making the decision to start my own business, I had absolutely no idea how to even start one.  So part of this blog is to I hope give other aspiring entrepreneurs an inside glimpse of all the little tidbits you need to know in order to start a business.  I will give updates on my current two clients as updates become available as well as show you the progress of officially launching ROAR Marketing.

In addition, I want to post interesting and useful entries that appeal to anyone in marketing, creative professions and entrepreneurs.  So sit back and watch as ROAR Marketing grows into a (what I hope) a successful business 😀 !
