The Rise and Monetize Creators Summit for Creative Female Entrepreneurs

Christine Coughlin created the Rise and Monetize Creators Summit to help empower female entrepreneurs to reach their full potential using digital marketing to support their families and feel fulfilled in their careers.

Christine collaborated with 13 Greater Vancouver female entrepreneurs and business experts and created a speaker lineup of local brands, PR agencies, established content creators and business services that support creators.

The main takeaways of the summit were to empower creative female entrepreneurs to 10x their confidence, understand their worth and teach them how to capture the attention of brands and clients so they could monetize their platforms more quickly.
